For an SUV, even in the same class as a crossover, having horsepower is important. You want to be able to get up and go, and horsepower is what will get you there, especially on the highway. Luckily, the RAV4 has much more horsepower than the Escape and it comes standard while still providing similar efficiency numbers.
You don’t just want efficiency for your engine. You want to drive efficiently too. Adaptive cruise control is a more efficient way to drive. It will track traffic in front of you and keep the same speed slowing down or speeding back up with the flow of traffic.
If you want a crossover, chances are you want all-wheel drive too. Not only is the RAV4 available with AWD, but it’s available (or sometimes standard) on every trim level, and many of the options we have here have AWD.
The Toyota RAV4 comes standard with a lot of features built right into its infotainment system including Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and SiriusXM satellite radio. Additionally, the RAV4 comes standard with an aux port for another easy audio input. This feature isn’t available at all on the Ford Escape.
