2016 Ford Escape vs 2016 Hyundai Tucson near Oklahoma City, OK

See Why the Ford Escape Takes Home the Gold!

With so many quality crossovers to choose from in the market these days, it can become overwhelming to narrow down your choices. When it comes to capability, power, cargo space, and interior amenities, some crossovers can do these better than others. In our 2016 Ford Escape vs 2016 Hyundai Tucson near Oklahoma City, OK, comparison, the Ford Escape brings home the gold with its unmatched performance, superior handling, and finely-furnished interior. We welcome you to experience everything the Ford Escape has to offer here at David Stanley Ford, your local Ford dealer.

When it comes to performance, both crossovers offer similar engines, yet the Ford Escape proves that it’s the number one contender with its remarkable powertrain lineup. The Escape’s 2.5L Duratec 4-cylinder base engine produces a noteworthy 168 horsepower and 170 lb.-ft. of torque, which most certainly surpasses the 2016 Tucson’s 2.0L 4-cylinder powerhouse, which only gives you 164 horsepower and 151 lb.-ft. of torque. And you’ll get the same efficient fuel economy of 31 MPG hwy1,2 from both engines.

There is no competition with Ford’s power-driven EcoBoost® engines. With its 1.6L EcoBoost® 4-cylinder powerhouse, you get an astounding 178 horsepower3. The Hyundai Tucson’s 1.6L 4-cylinder powertrain can’t quite work up to the Escape’s strength with its underwhelming 175 horsepower. Ford also gives you another option, whereas Hyundai only provides you with two powertrain choices. If you really want to up the ante, the 2.0L EcoBoost® 4-cylinder engine makes your heart race with its spirited 240 horsepower3 and 270 lb.-ft. of torque.

For your outdoor adventures at Spring Creek Park, you can load all you need with the Escape’s cargo-accommodating interior. Although both crossovers provide you with a standard 60/40 split-folding rear seat to take the time and stress out of packing, the 2016 Escape gives you  more room to fit items of any size. From your coolers and backpacks, to your tents and hiking boots, you can fit whatever you need with the Escape’s 67.8 cu. ft. of maximum cargo space4, which outdoes the Tucson’s 61.9 cu. ft. of maximum cargo space. You even get plenty of room when you have a full cab of passengers with the Escape’s 34.3 cu. ft. of cargo space4 behind the second-row seats. However, you’ll be more limited with the 2016 Tucson’s 31 cu. ft. of cargo space it offers when all seats are in place.

The Ford Escape takes the leading title when it comes to space and performance in our 2016 Ford Escape vs 2016 Hyundai Tucson near Oklahoma City, OK, comparison. Up front at the driver’s seat, you’ll enjoy an ample amount of 43.1 inches of front legroom in the Ford Escape, whereas the Hyundai Tucson only offers 41.5 inches of rear legroom. You get access to the perfect position with the Escape’s available 10-way power-adjustable driver and front passenger seat with lumbar support. You may be more uncomfortable with the Tucson’s available 8-way power-adjustable seat with lumbar support, since it doesn’t provide as much flexibility.

When you put the 2016 Ford Escape and 2016 Hyundai Tucson near Oklahoma City, OK, up against each other, the crossover that provides you with superior features and an unmatched ride is the Ford Escape.
