Ford is known for crafting some rugged rides, and the Ford EcoSport and Ford Escape are no exception. Which crossover is ideal for your East Stroudsburg, Stroudsburg, Lehigh Valley, Nazareth, and Easton, PA, drives, though?

The team at Ray Price Stroud Ford is here to help you find the answer.

Choose the Performance you Crave

There are so many factors to consider when choosing your next crossover, but one of the most important ones is how the car performs. Everyone is looking for something different, and the EcoSport has two peppy engines to excite you:

  • 1.0L EcoBoost® engine: 123 horsepower and 125 lb-ft of torque
  • 2.0L Ti-VCT I-4 engine: 166 horsepower and 149 lb-ft of torque

When armed with the baseline 1.0L motor, this vehicle earns an EPA-estimated 27 city/29 highway MPG to keep you on the road for longer.

If you're looking for a little more oomph on your morning commute, turn to the three available engines in the Ford Escape:

  • 1.5L EcoBoost® I-3 engine: 181 horsepower and 190 lb-ft of torque
  • 2.0L EcoBoost® I-4 engine: 250 horsepower and 280 lb-ft of torque
  • 2.5L hybrid I-4 engine: 165 horsepower and 155 lb-ft of torque

The addition of a hybrid engine helps the Escape earn an EPA-estimated 44 city/37 highway MPG.

Ample Space for the Whole Clan

Both of these crossovers offer seating for up to five passengers, allowing your friends to come along for the ride. The 2021 Ford EcoSport has ample space for everyone to stretch out in with over 91 cubic feet of passenger space. The Escape, on the other hand, has a little more room with 104 cubic feet.

There are also some key differences when it comes to cargo space, with nearly 21 cubic feet of cargo room in the EcoSport and over 37 cubic feet in the 2021 Ford Escape. Both vehicles can easily fit your groceries and weekend bags, so you just need to decide if extra cubic feet is needed for your specific lifestyle needs.

A Safe Journey in the Ford EcoSport

Wherever the road takes you, you'll be able to explore with confidence thanks to BLIS® (Blind Spot Information System) with Cross-Traffic Alert in the 2021 Ford EcoSport and Ford Escape. When on the highway, this system keeps an eye on your side blind zone to let you know when another vehicle is alongside you and when it's safe to make a lane change.

When reversing out of a parking space, this system is once again looking out for you. It alerts you to approaching cars so you can confidently and securely leave your spot.

This feature comes standard in the Escape and is available in the EcoSport.

2021 EcoSport vs Escape: Which Ford is Right for You?

The answer to which crossover is right for you lies in your specific lifestyle needs. If you want a peppy commuter with great efficiency, then consider the 2021 Ford EcoSport. If instead you need some extra cargo space, get behind the wheel of the 2021 Ford Escape.

Drivers from East Stroudsburg, Stroudsburg, Lehigh Valley, Nazareth, and Easton, Pennsylvania, can stop by Ray Price Stroud Ford today to test drive either the EcoSport or Escape.
