2015 Ford Escape vs. 2015 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited than in the Ford Escape, due to its greater 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 Unlimited.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Ford Escape as you will with the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited, as they are both able to travel similar distances on a tank of gas.

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 Unlimited. 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 Unlimited.

Dimensions
The Ford Escape is a little narrower than the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. The Ford Escape is slightly shorter than the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited, which may make it easier to park.

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

Handling
The Ford Escape has a smaller turning radius than the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited, allowing you to more easily 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 Unlimited, since they have about the same towing capacity. The Ford Escape has a little less horsepower than the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited.

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 Wrangler Unlimited. The Ford Escape has less cargo space than the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

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