From the first characteristics that we always look at, the price, we can tell that none of the models will go that much further, as they will cost almost the same. Ford Escape costs around $22,470 in its base model, while Subaru Forester costs more for just $25, with the price of $22,495. Now let’s see on the engine side. Ford got for itself the 2.5L 168hp I4, not bad for such a big and heavy SUV, while Subaru is not that far in this characteristic neither, with the 2.5L 170hp H4. On the road you will not feel any difference, after all. Even on the fuel economy side these two cars are almost the same, though Ford can beat up the Subaru just a little bit, offering about 2 mpg more, with 22 mpg in the city and 31 mpg on the highway.

So what can we say, the fight between these two SUVs didn’t get as far as we expected, as at the end we do not have the winner. It is a total draw, ladies and gentleman, the draw.
