2018 Ford Escape vs 2018 GMC Acadia

When properly equipped, the 2018 Ford Escape can give you all the power and strength you could ever want or need from your sport utility vehicle. Thanks to its 2.0L EcoBoost® engine and a Class II Trailer-Tow Package, the 2018 Escape boasts a maximum towing capacity of 1,587 kilograms. With the innovative trailer-sway control technology included with the Trailer-Tow Package, you'll be able to tow your trailer with confidence. If the trailer-sway control system detects that your trailer is beginning to sway, it will automatically take the appropriate measures in order to get the trailer and Escape under control.

In addition to all that brawn, the 2018 Escape has the brains to match! With many available driver-assist features, the 2018 Escape is capable of keeping an extra eye on the road around your vehicle in order to keep you, and everyone else on the road safe and sound. The 2018 Escape is also compatible with both Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ so you'll be able to sync your compatible smartphone with your smart SUV. Before we talk more about the 2018 Escape, let's take a look at how it compares with the 2018 GMC Acadia.

As you can see, the 2018 Ford Escape and the 2018 GMC Acadia compare very well against each other. Both feature technologies not offered on the other, and we think both are incredible vehicles. The one big area where the 2018 Acadia wasn't able to keep up with the 2018 Escape is with the available Active Park Assist feature. With this system in place, your Escape will be able to park itself in tight spaces, and will even be able to parallel park!
