The 2018 Ford Escape
The Jeep Cherokee
The 2018 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 2018 Escape starts at a budget-friendly price of $23,850, while the Jeep Cherokee comes in at $24,395. That difference can be put towards packages or accessories towards your Escape, or can simply be money that you save. When every penny counts, the Ford Escape is the more financially-friendly option.
If you’re purchasing a compact SUV, 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 cubic feet of cargo space when the seats are up, and 68 cubic feet when the seats are folded down. The Jeep Cherokee only gives you 24.6 cubic feet with seats upright, and 54.9 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 2018 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.
