2016 Jeep Compass vs. 2016 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
With the Ford Escape, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Jeep Compass, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

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). Clearly, the Jeep Compass is a better financial choice over the Ford Escape, when considering MSRP. 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
With its lower torque engine, the Jeep Compass doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Ford Escape.

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 significantly less cargo capacity than the Ford Escape.

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