2014 Jeep Patriot vs. 2014 Ford Escape Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Jeep Patriot than in the Ford Escape. The Ford Escape offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Jeep Patriot, offering the driver and front passenger a bit more room and comfort.

Convenience
The Ford Escape requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Jeep Patriot, 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). Clearly, the Jeep Patriot 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 Patriot is much higher than that for the Ford Escape.

Dimensions
Since the Jeep Patriot is much slimmer than the Ford Escape, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. The Jeep Patriot is slightly shorter than the Ford Escape, which may make it easier to park.

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

Handling
The Jeep Patriot 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 Patriot will do just as well as the Ford Escape, since they have about the same towing capacity. When it comes to horsepower, the Jeep Patriot 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 Patriot and the Ford Escape. The Jeep Patriot 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 Patriot comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Ford Escape.
