2017 Ford Escape vs. 2017 Jeep Compass Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Jeep Compass than in the Ford Escape, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Ford Escape will be popular with taller drivers and passengers in the front seat, due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Jeep Compass.

Convenience
The Ford Escape requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Jeep Compass, making it more convenient to drive.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). The Ford Escape is somewhat more expensive than the Jeep Compass. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Ford Escape carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Jeep Compass.

Dimensions
The Ford Escape is a little wider than the Jeep Compass, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. When looking at overall length, the Ford Escape takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Jeep Compass.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the Ford Escape transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the Jeep Compass.

Handling
The Ford Escape has a larger turning radius than the Jeep Compass, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
If you've got something you need to pull, the Ford Escape will do just as well as the Jeep Compass, since they have about the same towing capacity. When it comes to horsepower, the Ford Escape greatly out-muscles the Jeep Compass.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Ford Escape and the Jeep Compass. With the Ford Escape, you'll be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Jeep Compass.

Warranty
The Ford Escape comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Jeep Compass.
