Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Ford Escape than in the Nissan Rogue. The Nissan Rogue will be a hit with tall drivers and their front seat passengers, since it has greater front head- and legroom than the Ford Escape.

Convenience
The Ford Escape requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Nissan Rogue, 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). The Ford Escape is somewhat more expensive than the Nissan Rogue. 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 Escape is much higher than that for the Nissan Rogue.

Dimensions
Since the Ford Escape is much wider than the Nissan Rogue, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. When looking at overall length, the Ford Escape takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Nissan Rogue.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque engine, the Ford Escape doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Nissan Rogue.

Performance
When considering towing capacity, the Ford Escape is clearly the choice over the Nissan Rogue for pulling heavy loads. The Ford Escape has a little less horsepower than the Nissan Rogue.

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

Warranty
The Ford Escape comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Nissan Rogue.
