The 2017 Jeep Cherokee vs. Ford Escape


Fan Favorite Jeep Cherokee Takes on the Competition

Jeep is the maker of some of the best SUVs on American roads today. From the Grand Cherokee all the way down to the subcompact Jeep Renegade, the automaker has something for everyone in their lineup, and we stock it here at Floyd A. Megee Motor Company.

As amazing as we know Jeep SUVs and crossovers are, we understand that the Georgetown, Milton, and Salisbury area is a crowded market chock full of competing cars of similar sizes and abilities. But, we also understand that none of those other cars have the same level of quality and luxury as Jeep puts into each model they make.

If you're on the fence between a Jeep and a competing brand, we have good news for you. Here, we've compiled a side-by-side comparison between the Jeep Cherokee and another American SUV, the Ford Escape. We hope it makes the car-buying decision for our customers throughout the Milford, Milton, and Sussex County areas a little easier.

Jeep Cherokee vs. the Ford Escape

The Jeep Cherokee is the largest vehicle in the Jeep lineup. A two-door, five-passenger crossover that drives like a car and is easy to maneuver, the Jeep Cherokee is a rare sight in the SUV world - a crossover that can actually take drivers on both off-road adventures and on their daily commute.

  • Power. In addition to having an off-road, rugged capability that the Ford Escape lacks, the Jeep Cherokee is also a more powerful vehicle than the Ford Escape. At just their most basic trim levels, the Cherokee offers drivers 295 horsepower, while the Ford only gets 168 horsepower.
  • Transmission. Every Jeep Cherokee in the lineup comes with a powerful, responsive, eight-speed automatic transmission, compared to the Ford Escape, which doesn't even have an eight-speed as an option.

  • Size and Space. The Cherokee measures a little bigger overall than the Ford Escape. What this translates into for you is more cargo space and higher ground clearance for bumpy roads.
