The 2017 Ford Escape
The 2017 Jeep Cherokee
The 2017 Ford Escape and Jeep Cherokee are both great compact SUVs for the adventurer who is always on the go, whether that means toting extra passengers or gear. Choosing just one of these vehicles can be tough, but at Advantage Ford LINCOLN in Fremont, OH, we know that the Ford Escape is the best pick for our customers. Before you make a decision for yourself, let’s dig in deeper and compare the two.
The Ford Escape gets 23 city/30 highway MPG, while the Jeep Cherokee only gets 21 city/30 highway MPG. You might not think this is a big difference, but those miles can really add up at the gas pump. When every penny counts, the Ford Escape is the more financially friendly option.
If you’re purchasing a crossover, cargo room will of course be important to you! The Ford Escape definitely outdoes the Cherokee in terms of cargo space. The Escape gives you 34.3 cubic feet of cargo space when the seats are up, and 67.8 cubic feet when the seats are folded down. The Jeep Cherokee only gives you 24.6 cubic feet with seats upright, and 58.9 cubic feet when down. Both vehicles hold five passengers, but with the Escape your passengers will enjoy more head room and front-seat leg room.
The 2017 Ford Escape will keep both you and your family safe with its standard AdvanceTrac® with Roll Stability Control™, Tire Pressure Monitoring System, Personal Safety System™, and plenty of airbags for all passengers. The Jeep Cherokee comes standard with Anti-Lock Brakes, stability control, and other great features. Both vehicles also have good crash test ratings, but the Jeep Cherokee falls short in a few categories, coming out with four starts total compared to the Ford Escape’s five stars.
