Choosing the Right Ford at Our Yuba City Area Dealership

When you're caught between two great vehicle choices, it can seem overwhelming. It's especially tough when you don't know how exactly each differs from the other. That's why our Ford dealer near Yuba City wants to show our customers the important differences between two popular models, the 2018 Ford Escape and the 2018 Ford EcoSport. While they are both compact SUVs, they offer a variety of different benefits that appeal to different drivers.

To start, if you're looking to do some light towing, the Ford Escape is larger in size than the Ford EcoSport. Its larger size also affords it more power, with 245 horsepower compared to the 166 horsepower of the EcoSport. With a more powerful engine, the Escape is prepared to tow 3,500 pounds, which is enough to tow some light outdoor camping equipment. The Escape also has a larger wheelbase, which allows it to off-road and navigate tougher terrain with more ease than the lower EcoSport.

However if Yuba City area drivers are looking for a Ford with both efficiency and nimble handling, the EcoSport is another great choice. This model offers similar EPA ratings to the Escape, but for city driving it yields 27 mpg compared to the 21 mpg of the Escape. This means you can drive for longer in the city with minimal interruptions, while also handling sharp turns with ease. The EcoSport has a smaller, compact look that makes it perfect for smart turning and maneuvering the crowded roads.
