2018 Jeep Compass vs. 2018 Ford Escape Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Jeep Compass offers a bit more room for passengers in the back seat than 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 Jeep Compass will cost more in terms of transportation costs than the Ford Escape.

Dimensions
The Jeep Compass is a little wider than the Ford Escape, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. The Jeep Compass is slightly shorter than the Ford Escape, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
With similar torque, the Jeep Compass and the Ford Escape are about even in transmitting their respective horsepower to the wheels.

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
In terms of towing capacity, the Ford Escape is clearly the choice over the Jeep Compass for pulling heavy loads. In terms of horsepower, it's a virtual tie between the Jeep Compass and 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.
