The 2015 Hyundai Santa Fe and the 2015 Ford Escape are both wonderful all-terrain vehicles capable of providing reliably good performance on the city roads as well as the rough countryside terrains. The 2015 versions of these vehicles promise to offer the same capabilities like its predecessors although with a few added features.
You should not expect a big difference between the new versions and their predecessors in terms if design and body shape. Both manufacturers are only making minor alterations to the existing designs. What you can expect however are small improvements and usage of lighter materials. This means lower weight and better fuel efficiency in combination with improved performances and handling in both the 2015 Hyundai Santa-Fe and the 2015 Ford Escape.
2015 Hyundai Santa Fe Vs 2015 Ford Escape
In a showdown of the 2015 Hyundai Santa-Fe vs 2015 Ford Escape, here are some of the specifications and feature you can look forward to. Here are the most important details about both of these models and what can be expected. This comparison will allow you to choose the one that is certainly better for you.
Engine department is one of the segments where Ford brings more. The Santa Fe is offered with only 3.3 liter V unit that pumps out impressive 290 hp. Power is transferred through six speed automatic transmission giving it great performances. We could hear that in the future this model could be also offered with 2.4 liter naturally aspirated engine of 190 hp and that the 2.0 liter turbocharged unit could come with 264 hp. At this point these are only rumors and reports.
The 2015 Ford Escape engine options include, a 2.5 L four cylinder engine that delivers 168Hp, a 1.6 L producing 178 hp and a 2.0 L producing about 240 hp. The smaller 1.6 L and 2.0 L engines are capable of so much power thanks to Ford’s EcoBoost turbocharging technology. Thanks to its EcoBoost technology, the Ford escape engines will also offer far better fuel economy. This makes Ford a winner in terms of fuel efficiency at least in most cases. But have in mind that Santa Fe offers more power.
You can expect a number of safety features in both cars. Some of the features you can look forward to include ABS brakes, Traction control, an Emergency call system in the Hyundai and electronic stability control. At least six airbags are offered and depending on the trim level this number rises. Safety is one of the major concerns and both car companies delivered a lot of attention to this.
Comparison Of 2015 Ford Escape And 2015 Hyundai Santa Fe

In the Hyundai, one unique feature to look forward to include is a big-sunroof. The 2015 Ford Escape on the other hand will offer its back seat occupants ample up to 40 inches of headroom for added comfort allowing even taller passengers to have decent amount of space.
Both cars will come with varying prices depending on the engine versions and specific features. However, both should have a price range of between $20,000 to $30,000. The 2015 Ford Escape will also come with 2WD options should be priced at $23,100 while the 2015 Hyundai Santa Fe price should start from about $30,000 but again we need to say it will offer larger and much more powerful engine even in base version.
