The Toughroad has wider tires, so much more comfortable on rougher roads and off road. Also better control over rougher terrain or roads. i even put wider rims and tires on mine for even better comfort. Most other hybrids don't allow any wide tires and you are bound to good pavement surface.

That Escape also seems to have an older 9-speed Deore (new ones are 10-speed). The toughroad has the newer 10-speed version. The escape also has older Octalink style BB.

Used toughroad are very very rare, if you get a relatively new SLR1 for $800, that is good.
