2017 Subaru Outback vs. 2017 Ford Escape Comparison in North Reading, MA

  • The AWD that's standard with the Outback is only an available option at the higher trim levels of the Escape, which costs you more for a feature that's pretty crucial for navigating rough New England winters.
  • The Outback both outperforms and earns better fuel efficiency than the Escape, making it a better choice for your everyday vehicle in more than one way.
  • The Outback provides more space for both passenger seating and cargo storage when compared to the new Escape.
  • When properly equipped, and if you need it, the Outback can tow more than the Escape, though that capability is still limited in that you'll be using a smaller SUV for towing.

  • The Outback starts off at a considerably lower price than the base level of the Highlander, which means considerable savings seeing that the Toyota SUV will require a bump in trim levels for even the most basic additions.
  • That includes AWD, which is standard on the Outback but only an added option at a bump up from the base trim level of the Highlander.
  • When comparing four-cylinder engine options, the Outback is considerably more efficient than the Highlander, making the Subaru a better choice for your daily commuting.
