Jeep Cherokee vs. Ford Escape - Side by Side and Head to Head

  • Off-road capability. The entire Jeep lineup of vehicles are renowned for their off-road performance, and the Jeep Cherokee continues the tradition. Capable of tackling the toughest dirt roads with all-wheel drive available across all trims, the Cherokee takes it one step further, with the off-road, trail-ready Trailhawk trim level. This incredible model gives you off-road-oriented suspension tuning, a locking rear differential, and much, much more, to make every off-the-beaten-path adventure you take easier and more exciting. The Ford Escape, on the other hand, has all-wheel drive available, but it's not meant to go off road, and it doesn't have any specialty trim levels to make it more adventurous.
  •  
  • Engines and power. Both SUVs have a range of engines for drivers to choose from, starting with a base four-cylinder and going up from there. But, the Ford Escape feels nearly underpowered when compared to the Jeep Cherokee. None of the Ford model's engines compare in power to the Cherokee powertrains, and none can quite come close to the Jeep model for horsepower and torque ratings.

  • Efficiency. The Jeep Cherokee is also more efficient than the Ford Escape, and it allows you to travel further on a tank of gas than the Escape. For example, equipped with the base four-cylinder engine, the Jeep earns a combined rating of 25 mpg, and can go 348 miles in the city and 490 miles on the highway per fill up. The Escape, on the other hand, is rated for 24 mpg combined, and travels 330 miles in the city and 455 miles on the highway per tank of gas.
  •  
  • Passenger space. The Jeep Cherokee is the more comfortable SUV for you and your passengers, with a little more shoulder, headroom, and legroom than the Escape, especially in the backseat.
