The Jeep Cherokee vs. Ford Escape

With a lot of value, the Jeep Cherokee gets crafted with an aerodynamic exterior and trendy design elements both inside and out. This SUV is ideal whether you want a vehicle full of modern amenities to take your daily commutes in or one to take on an off-road excursion. Though the Jeep Cherokee gets constructed with versatility, capability, and security in mind, there are other compact SUVs out there on the market to consider. For instance, the 2018 Ford Escape also has a lot to contemplate for drivers as well. However, while both SUVs offers seating for five, the Jeep Cherokee has seemingly endless possibilities with eight models to choose from. This is unlike the competition that only has four to consider.

When it comes to handling and abilities, the Jeep Cherokee has a 2.4-liter engine that can reach 184 Horsepower while the Ford Escape has a 2.5-liter engine that only produces 168 Horsepower. Even when the top model of the Ford Escape sports the 2.0-liter engine, the maximum 245 Horsepower doesn't pull ahead of the 271 Horsepower that the 2018 Jeep Cherokee Overland 4x4 model has. For more versatility, the Jeep Cherokee has a 9-Speed Automatic Transmission whereas the Ford Escape comes in with a 6-Speed Automatic Transmission. The 2018 Jeep Cherokee also slightly outweighs the competitor in fuel efficiency with a combined 25 mpg while the other has a combined 24 mpg. For enhanced capability, the 2018 Jeep Cherokee offers a 4x4 variety with their models that can conquer on- or off-road conditions seamlessly. If you plan on towing, choose a Jeep Cherokee 4x4 model that offers 4,500 pounds of towing capacity that significantly outweighs the 3,500 pounds that the Ford Escape offers with their top Titanium model.

Standard roof rails on the Jeep Cherokee provide a lot of convenience for drivers, and the amenities don't stop there. Even with the base Latitude model of the Jeep Cherokee, you get to enjoy modern features like a 5.0-inch touchscreen display, Integrated Voice Command with Bluetooth®, and Uconnect® 3. While the 2018 Ford Escape offers an infotainment system of their own, the Jeep Cherokee and has more options than the other vehicle with three Uconnect® system options to choose from that are all easy to use. You can enjoy components like phone calls, entertainment, and navigational services all from this tech-savvy system. You can relish in these innovative features from the available driver and front passenger heated-cushion seating and driver's seat that offers lumbar support. There is also more rear leg room and front shoulder room than the Ford Escape, to make for a comfortable ride for all those inside.
