Jeep Compass vs. Ford Escape

If you want one of the most spirited SUVs on the market today, then you may have narrowed your search down to the Jeep Compass vs. Ford Escape already. But between the two models, we think that the Jeep Compass specs are far more impressive. To start off, the Jeep Compass has extra safety features that you won’t find on the Ford Escape at all. Between Active Head Restraints and a locking fuel door with remote release function, you’ll feel much more secure in your Jeep. Plus, the Compass offers a Forward Collision Warning Plus system with an automated braking feature to prevent accidents. The Equinox doesn’t have this automated braking system at all!

Additionally, the Jeep is much more powerful with its 2.4L I4 engine – generating over 10 additional horsepower and 5 lb-ft of extra torque with every push of the pedal. The mild-mannered Ford Escape simply can’t compare. Now that you’ve read our SUV comparison, feel free to check out the other great Jeep models in the lineup. See how the 2019 Jeep Cherokee and 2018 Jeep Compass compare with Gurnee CJDR, and then visit the dealership for your test drive. We’re just a short trip from Libertyville and Crystal Lake, so stop by anytime!
