2014 Ford Escape vs. 2015 Mitsubishi Outlander Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Ford Escape offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Mitsubishi Outlander, with comparable head- and legroom. The Ford Escape offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Mitsubishi Outlander, making it a little more comfortable for the driver and front passenger.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Ford Escape as you will with the Mitsubishi Outlander, 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). The Ford Escape is somewhat more expensive than the Mitsubishi Outlander. 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 will cost more in terms of transportation costs than the Mitsubishi Outlander.

Dimensions
Since the Ford Escape is much wider than the Mitsubishi Outlander, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. The Ford Escape is slightly shorter than the Mitsubishi Outlander, which may make it easier to park.

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

Handling
The Ford Escape has a significantly larger turning radius than the Mitsubishi Outlander, making it much more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When considering towing capacity, the Ford Escape is clearly the choice over the Mitsubishi Outlander for pulling heavy loads. When it comes to horsepower, the Ford Escape greatly out-muscles the Mitsubishi Outlander.

Utility
The Ford Escape has less seating than the Mitsubishi Outlander, making the Mitsubishi Outlander the better choice, if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The Ford Escape has a roomier cargo area for putting your bags or other items than the Mitsubishi Outlander.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Ford Escape is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Mitsubishi Outlander.
