2015 Ford Escape vs. 2015 Jeep Wrangler Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Ford Escape offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Jeep Wrangler, with comparable head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Ford Escape and the Jeep Wrangler.

Convenience
The Ford Escape requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Jeep Wrangler, 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). When looking only at MSRP, the Ford Escape will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Jeep Wrangler. 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 Wrangler.

Dimensions
The Ford Escape is a little narrower than the Jeep Wrangler, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. If you go with the Ford Escape, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Jeep Wrangler.

Drivetrain
The Ford Escape has much lower torque than the Jeep Wrangler, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling
The Ford Escape has a significantly larger turning radius than the Jeep Wrangler, making it much 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 Wrangler, since they have about the same towing capacity. The Ford Escape has a little less horsepower than the Jeep Wrangler.

Utility
The Ford Escape offers greater seating capacity than the Jeep Wrangler, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. The Ford Escape has a roomier cargo area for putting your bags or other items than the Jeep Wrangler.

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