Have you test driven either vehicle? I think you'll be able to answer your own question after getting a feel for how each drives. If the Ti has enough power to satisfy you, go with that and get the better fuel economy, more comfy ride, and more features.
On the other hand, what about the latest Escape? You can get both the 2.0 Ecoboost engine in it and whatever features you want to tack on and still get good fuel economy. And you could sell your truck and drag your bikes around with an Escape as well.
