Comparison Review

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

Convenience
With the Ford Escape, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Ford Bronco Sport, 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). The Ford Bronco Sport is somewhat more expensive 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 Ford Bronco Sport is much higher than that for the Ford Escape.

Dimensions
The Ford Bronco Sport is about the same width as the Ford Escape. The Ford Bronco Sport is slightly shorter than the Ford Escape, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the Ford Bronco Sport does a much better job of transmitting its engine's horsepower to its wheels than the Ford Escape.

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

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Ford Bronco Sport and the Ford Escape. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries in the Ford Bronco Sport as you will in the Ford Escape.

Warranty
The Ford Bronco Sport comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Ford Escape.
