2015 Jeep Compass vs. 2015 Ford Escape Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Jeep Compass than in the Ford Escape. The Ford Escape will be a hit with tall drivers and their front seat passengers, since it has 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). When looking only at MSRP, the Jeep Compass will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Ford Escape. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Destination Charge for the Jeep Compass is much higher than that for the Ford Escape.

Dimensions
The Jeep Compass is a little narrower than the Ford Escape, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. When looking at overall length, the Jeep Compass takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Ford Escape.

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

Handling
The Jeep Compass has a smaller turning radius than the Ford Escape, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
If you've got something you need to pull, the Jeep Compass will do just as well as the Ford Escape, since they have about the same towing capacity. When it comes to horsepower, the Jeep Compass has a lot less horsepower than the Ford Escape.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Jeep Compass and the Ford Escape. The Jeep Compass has less cargo space than the Ford Escape, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

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