2019 Jeep Cherokee vs. 2019 Ford Escape

  • The Cherokee offers more standard horsepower than the Escape does. The Cherokee comes with a standard 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 180-horsepower, while the Escape comes with a standard 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 168-horsepower.
  • For even more power, the Cherokee offers two other available engine options, including a 3.2-liter V6 engine with 271-horsepower and an all-new 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine with 270-horsepower. The Escape also offers two available turbocharged engines, but they fall short with 179-horsepower and 245-horsepower.
  • With larger and more powerful engines under the hood, the Cherokee offers more towing power than the Escape. When properly equipped, the Cherokee can tow up to 4,500 pounds, compared to the Escape which can only tow up to 3,500 pounds. With 1,000 pound difference between the two vehicles, that could be the difference between getting your boat up to Oneida Lake this weekend or staying stuck in Manlius, NY.
  • For off road travels, the Cherokee offers better capability than the Escape does. The Escape only offers front-wheel and all-wheel drive options, while the Cherokee offers the Jeep Active Drive I and Active Drive II 4x4 systems, as well as a Selec-Terrain traction management system that allows you to set your vehicle's performance based on the terrain you're facing.
  • The Cherokee is more spacious than the Escape is, offering you and your passengers 104.4 cubic feet of passenger volume compared to 98.7 cubic feet of passenger volume in the Escape.
  • Even with more horsepower, the Cherokee achieves a higher estimated combined fuel economy than the Escape, with 25 mpg compared to 24 mpg from the Escape.
  • Every new 2019 Cherokee model now comes with a standard seven-inch Uconnect infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The Escape, however, comes with a 4.2-inch touchscreen display for the Sync system but doesn't offer standard Apple CarPlay or Android Auto.
