Considering the 2014 Ford Escape in the Boise, Meridian, or Nampa, Idaho areas?

The demand for crossover utility vehicles like the 2014 Ford Escape somehow manages to increase each year, and the Escape looks like it might give Ford a solid competitor in the segment.

It's really unfair to discuss crossover utility vehicles when there's one like the 2014 Honda CR-V on the market, however. The foundation of the crossover segment, the CR-V has been the go-to vehicle for Boise drivers for many years now, and drivers know to expect nothing but top marks from Honda. Honda just manages to keep outdoing themselves, redefining their standard equipment options and making the base-level CR-V LX more appealing than ever. Amenities like Honda's customizable i-MID interface with a 5-inch LCD screen, a rear-view camera, steering wheel-mounted technology controls and Bluetooth audio and calls are just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the CR-V LX's standard features. On the other hand, adding any of those features to the Escape S will cost you.
