When it comes to buying a new SUV, drivers near Sioux City, NE have plenty of choices. The SUV segment is a crowded one, with driver favorites such as the 2020 Ford Escape facing plenty of competition from cars like the 2020 Subaru Outback. The dealers at Woodhouse Ford of Blair know that comparison car shopping can be difficult, which is why we would like to make your decision an informed one. Here is a direct comparison, where we pit the Ford Escape against the Subaru Outback.

Efficient Powertrains

To many SUV shoppers, having a powerful, efficient engine is one of the most important considerations. The 2020 Ford Escape has two available gasoline engines and two hybrid options – a standard and a plug-in hybrid version. When you buy the hybrid version, this vehicle can achieve 44 miles per gallon on the highway and 37 miles per gallon in the city. The Hybrid versions are also equipped with an EV mode that allows drivers to select how they want to travel.

While the 2020 Subaru Outback does have two available engines, neither of them are hybrid. The base engine achieves 33 miles per gallon on the highway, which falls short of the standard set by the Ford Escape.

Reassuring Safety

Every trim of the new Ford SUV comes standard with a suite of safety and driver-assist features. Known as Ford Co-Pilot360TM, this suite includes Pre-Collision Assist with Automatic Emergency Braking, Auto High-Beam Headlamps, Lane-Keeping System, and Rearview Camera. The Subaru SUV also has some safety features, but only the 2020 Ford Escape has the available steering assist and a cruise control system with a lane-centering capability.

Now that you see why the Ford Escape is a segment-leader, visit Woodhouse Ford of Blair for a test drive.
