The Ford Escape vs. The Toyota RAV4

A compact SUV is a versatile vehicle that can be used for family transportation, daily driving, or adventures on the open road. When you are shopping for a small SUV at the car dealership, you will have several models to consider. This year, the Ford Escape has received several exciting updates that are sure to thrill you. When you are visiting the Ford dealer, you will want to check out the features of this Ford car. To highlight the benefits of new Ford cars, here is a quick comparison of the Ford Escape and the Toyota RAV4.

Styling
When you are shopping for your next SUV, one of the first features that you will want to consider is a vehicle’s overall style. For the 2016 model year, Ford has updated the escape with exciting new styling cues that are sure to turn heads on the road. By contrast, the Toyota RAV4 has more conventional styling that may not make the bold statement that you want to make.

Powertrains
Another primary difference between the Ford Escape and the Toyota RAV4 is the powertrains that are offered in each model. This year, the 2016 RAV4 comes with a single 2.5-liter 176 horsepower engine. By contrast, the Escape is available with three drivetrain points. For the ultimate in power, you can opt for a 2.0-liter engine that puts out an impressive 240 horsepower.

Drive Feel
The RAV4 and the Escape also differ in their overall drive feels. Ford has engineered the Escape to provide the driver with a sporty and responsive drive feel. From behind the wheel of the RAV4, you may notice a softer and less responsive suspension.

Tips for Keeping Your Ford Looking Shiny and New

Ford dealership BostonWhether you purchase a brand-new Ford or a used model, you can be confident that your vehicle will look amazing when you drive it off the lot for the first time—and fortunately there are a few easy things you can do to keep it looking that way for many years to come. Maintaining the exterior of your new or used Ford is about aesthetics, sure, but it’s also practical considering that well-maintained vehicles can fetch thousands of dollars more at sell or trade-in. Here are some tips that can keep your Ford looking as good as it did when you bought it.

Use Automotive Cleaning Products
One of the best things you can to maintain the luster and shine of your new Ford is to use cleaning products specifically formulated for automotive use. For example, most people use dishwashing detergent when washing their cars, but detergent can strip away protective wax coatings and expose the paint job to nicks, scratches, stains, and fading.

Hand Wash and Dry Immediately
Speaking of washing, hand washing is much better for your vehicle than taking it through a car wash, even a “touchless” one. Handwashing is gentler on the paint job and wax finish, and it also allows you to inspect and familiarize yourself with the car’s surfaces. Whether you wash by hand or take your car through a car wash, make sure to dry the car completely immediately after washing; when water evaporates it leaves minerals and dirt on the surface that can cause the paint to scratch and fade.

Protect With Wax or a Car Wrap
Wax absorbs stains and small scratches before the paint job gets the worst of it. Wax is especially helpful during the winter months when road salt, snow, and ice can damage unprotected surfaces. For the best protection, consider wrapping your new Ford in a protective “clear bra” that prevents scratches, stains, fading, and other cosmetic surface damage.

Tips for Safe Spring Driving [INFOGRAPHIC]

If you’re like many people, chances are you are excited for the end of winter and the arrival of warmer springtime temperatures. Spring driving brings its own set of hazards, such as rain and wet pavement. 46% of weather-related crashes between 2002 and 2012 were related to rain, so be sure to give yourself extra time and increase your stopping distance when the roads are wet. Hailstorms can occur with little warning in spring, and can damage the body and glass of your Ford. Take cover until the storm passes to prevent this damage. Many animals are also more active in the spring, particularly in the morning and evening. Use caution when you are driving near wooded areas, and pay attention to signs about animal crossings. Check out this infographic from Jack Madden Ford, a Ford dealership in Boston, to learn more about safe driving in the springtime. Please share with your friends and family!
