Subaru Foresters vs. Ford Escape

  • Overall Performance. The Forester offers a 182 horsepower 2.5-liter boxer-4 engine. The Ford Escape, comparatively, has three powertrains available, including a 245-horsepower turbocharged inline-4. One thing the Escape doesn't have, however, is standard all-wheel drive like the Forester does. You also have to invest well beyond the base model to reach that 245 horsepower peak.

  • Features and Safety. The Forester and Escape both provide options for robust media functionality. The Forester, however, blows the Escape out of the water in terms of safety. Its sturdy design is augmented by a suite of EyeSight-powered active systems that include automatic pre-collision braking, lane-keep assist, and more. The Escape has active technology, but you have to pay extra to get it.
  • Helping You Focus. The new Forester also offers the all-new DriverFocus system. Aimed at preventing driver distraction, DriverFocus provides automatic alerts when it detects the driver getting drowsy or distracted.
  • Competitive Pricing. To get behind the wheel of a base level Ford Escape, you'll pay close to $25,000. The base level Forester, with all its superior standard equipment? That'll run you around $23,000.
