ALEXANDRIA, Ky., May 22, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- After the doom and gloom that had cast a pall over the Detroit auto industry a few years ago, Ford Motor Company has responded stronger than ever by being one of the leaders in the industry. Mike Castrucci of Alexandria is proud to be offering a full line of Ford and Lincoln products. One of the most popular vehicles that have help Ford stay above the fray is the Ford Escape, a capable crossover SUV that offers a competitive mix of performance and usability. But how does it stack up to some of its competition? The team at Mike Castrucci of Alexandria has put together a head-to-head comparison of the 2013 Ford Escape vs. the 2013 Mazda CX-5.


Of the many things that have made Ford vehicles popular over the years is the company's willingness to give its customers plenty of options to make each vehicle they sell as customizable to each person as possible. This is a major factor in the 2013 Ford Escape beating out the Mazda CX-5. The Mazda crossover has just one engine option across all of its trims, a 2.0-liter, four-cylinder. The base trim of the Ford Escape is powered by a 2.5-liter, four-cylinder that turns out 178-horsepower compared to the 155-hp of the CX-5 engine. The Escape can also be fitted with a pair of turbocharged four-cylinder motors that top out at 240-hp.

The overall design of the 2013 Ford Escape also helps place it ahead of the Mazda CX-5. Rear passengers in the Ford Escape will have a comfortable ride, even those of more generous proportion. With the second row of seat up and ready for passengers, both vehicles have about 34 cubic-feet of space. However with the second row folded down, the Ford Escape's cargo area opens up to a generous 68.1 cu.-ft., whereas the cargo area on the Mazda CX-5 is 65 cu.-ft.
