Is your current compact SUV failing to live up to your expectations? Consider upgrading to the unforgettable 2018 Toyota RAV4! From its advanced safety systems to the substantial muscle rumbling beneath the hood, this is one vehicle that gets the job done without fail. However, here at Price Toyota, we don’t want you to just take our word at face value. Therefore, we’re comparing this Toyota to one of its segment rivals—the 2018 Ford Escape!

Interior Space

Before you embark on any journey, you’ll want to be sure that your vehicle is ready for action. When it comes to interior space, the 2018 RAV4 is difficult to top! Even at full capacity with five passengers, you’ll still find a generous 38.4 cubic ft. of cargo room1 behind the second row, so you can bring along all the essentials for a day at New Castle Battery Park. If you choose the Ford Escape, you’ll be limited to what you can take with just 34.0 cubic ft. at your disposal. Moreover, the Escape still falls short of the RAV4 even when the seats are folded down, as its maximum storage area of 68.0 cubic ft. pales in comparison to the outstanding 73.4 cubic ft. of stow-away space1 in the Toyota.

Power & Efficiency

Many drivers are under the impression that a vehicle can either be powerful or efficient, but not both. The 2018 Toyota RAV4 puts these notions to rest! Cranking out a lively 176-hp and 172 lb.-ft. of torque, its 2.5L 4-cylinder engine helps you make it to work in no time at all. Furthermore, despite delivering these impressive levels, it still manages to operate at a responsible 23/30 MPG city/hwy2, so you won’t feel like you’re tied to the pump. On the other hand, not only does the 2018 Escape’s similar 2.5L 4-cylinder system only manage to supply a less-capable 168-hp and 170 lb.-ft. of torque, but it also falls short of the RAV4 with its fuel rating of 21/29 MPG city/hwy3.

Safety Features

If you’re like most motorists, then safety is a top priority when considering a vehicle. The Toyota RAV4 is ready to step up to the plate in this category, as it includes a variety of protective advancements as standard in all trim levels. For example, Dynamic Radar Cruise Control4 helps you stay safe on the highway by maintaining both a preset speed and following distance, in addition to reacting to the traffic around you to prevent you from getting too close to the vehicle up ahead. Plus, with the Pre-Collision System5, you’ll have more time to react to situations when it alerts you that an accident is imminent. Although similar features are offered by the Ford Escape, you’ll only find them in the higher trims, costing you more in the long run.

Has this comparison of the 2018 Toyota RAV4 vs 2018 Ford Escape in New Castle, DE, helped you realize just how much there is to love about the RAV4? If so, make your way over to Price Toyota to get behind the wheel for a thrilling test drive. You’ll find us at 168 DuPont Hwy in New Castle, DE!

Over the years, I have purchased several new vehicles from Price Toyota and once again my experience was wonderful. Every employee that I dealt with was informative, helpful, and very professional. The salesman, Oscar Rivera, was extraordinary as usual. He is a true professional; knows his product, and takes whatever time necessary to make sure I understood everything from the vehicle options to all of the paperwork involved with the sales process. I drove approximately 200 miles (round-trip) to purchase a vehicle at Price Toyota and will definitely do it again. Thank you Oscar and everyone else at Price Toyota.

We have been keeping our older Toyotas (2002 Corolla and 2004 Corolla) in great shape using only Price Toyota in New Castle, DE. While having very few problems only the years other than a pesky Check Engine light, I have always depended on Price Toyota. Just yesterday, we had the 2002 Corolla detailed and I cannot remember it looking so good even when it was new. Both Corollas were bought at Price from Oscar. Just this past May, we bought a used 2016 Corolla as a college graduation present for our son and it is fantastic. Need a car - go to Price - no haggle, friendly people, and great service. A shout out to our favorite service advisor - Raeschel who always goes above and beyond - not only for us but everyone I see her deal with.

I bought 2019 Camry and this is the first service I had. The dealership workspace is excellent and welcoming environment. The best part which surprised me they have tie up with Lyft so individual car owner get drop andoff and pick up from location and not like other dealership who takes 7-8 individual into one shuttle.

My car needed an airbag replaced, so when the part was ready, I dropped my car off at Price and they also did the regular maintenance (oil change, tire rotation, etc.). The people were friendly, and since I had no one to pick me up, they provided a loaner vehicle for me to return the next day. The loaner was a nicer car than the car I was having fixed. I had no trouble at all, and everything went smoothly. I have all my Toyota work done at Price Toyota, and they know what they're doing.

Price Toyota is an amazing place. Whether you want to buy a vehicle or have a service done, they are extraordinary. Amazing stuff and very professional. The best part is they don't pretend and won't advise you for something unless they think you really need it done. It's a place you can trust. Specially 'Sean' is your man in the service department.

Cannot recommend Price Toyota highly enough. Purchased my Tundra from Oscar Rivera who really made buying a new vehicle a pleasure as opposed to a push and shove. I can see why he is one of the top rated salesmen in the country. Over the years have brought my vehicle in for service and have had nothing but the greatest experiences, no matter the visit. Recently had to deal with a few recalls that crept up over the years, and kept putting them off. My '03 Tundra literally has 13k miles on it, and is still in showroom condition. The old saying is no one will care about your vehicle as much as you, right ? Well, ended up dropping it off and dealt entirely with Sean Bigham in Service, and it could not have worked out better. Not only did Sean respect how clean the vehicle was, but kept me in the loop at every step for all of the work, and called back every time he needed to update me. You just don't get that type of service often these days. The biggest surprise was that I had some fairly good scuffs on a fender flare, and when I went to go pick the vehicle up, they were gone !!! Props out to Sean, the body/paint shop for that, I really appreciate it, and it really proved, that you guys, and Price, do care for OUR vehicles, like they were your own. 5/5 guys, I can't recommend highly enough.
