For the 2015 CR-V, its power stems from the 2.4-liter Earth Dreams engine. With this, you experience an impressive 185 horsepower and notable fuel economy for a well-balanced performance.
With the Ford Escape, however, you may not be able to feel harmony between power and efficiency, but the SUV does offer multiple engine options from which you can choose.
