One of the most important aspects of any vehicle is efficiency. The fuel economy that your vehicle gets is an absolutely essential fact to know before you make your purchase. In this category, the 2018 Ford Escape S holds the advantage over the 2018 GMC Acadia Denali, boasting 21 MPG in the city, 29 MPG on the highway, and 24 MPG combined. The Acadia Denali only gets 18 MPG in the city, 25 MPG on the highway, and 20 MPG combined. Not only is the Escape less expensive to fuel up, but it also has a lower MSRP at $24,845, as opposed to the steep MSRP of the Acadia Denali which sits at $47,995. Both of these vehicles also possess an automatic 6-speed transmission, but only the Escape S brings you the SelectShift feature. SelectShift allows you the option to pick between fully automatic shifting or semi-automatic clutchless shifting.

If you have to charge your phone or GPS through a 12V power outlet, you won't be able to in your 2018 GMC Acadia Denali, as it doesn't possess this feature. You can also count on the fact that the 2018 Ford Escape S features steel wheels, unlike the aluminum wheels of the Acadia. Speaking of steel, you can rely on Ford to protect you from corrosion and rust longer than GMC.
