2019 Jeep Cherokee vs 2019 Ford Escape in Fort Gratiot, MI

If you’re in the market for an adventure-ready compact SUV, set your sights on the 2019 Jeep Cherokee! Not only does this model offer outstanding capabilities, but it also comes with a cabin that’s loaded with an assortment of tech features and comfort elements. Moran Automotive is prepared to back up words with facts by comparing the Cherokee to one of its rivals—the 2019 Ford Escape. Contact us today to get the full story!

Technology

Let’s get this battle started by climbing inside the 2019 Cherokee to examine its various tech amenities. Within the standard 7-inch touchscreen display, you’ll be able to sync your compatible smartphone to this Jeep’s infotainment hub via Apple CarPlay™1 and Android Auto™2. That way, you can enjoy many of your favorite apps through a familiar interface. Unfortunately, this won’t be the case if you take home the Ford Escape, as it lacks these advancements in its base trim. However, even when we examine available options, the SUV from Ford continues to fall short. For instance, whereas the Cherokee can be upgraded with optional HD Radio™, the Escape offers no such option. Clearly, when it comes to entertainment, the Jeep is the better choice!

Comfort

Another indispensable aspect of your next SUV is comfort. Once again, the 2019 Jeep Cherokee manages to best the 2019 Ford Escape in this category. First, your rear-seat passengers in the Escape might feel a bit squished in its meager 37.3 inches of second-row legroom, which could lead to you making frequent stops on your way to Port Huron Golf Club. Meanwhile, the Cherokee is ideally equipped for extended journeys with its superior 40.3 inches of rear legroom. Naturally, those riding in the front will benefit from a few extra indulgences, which the SUV from Jeep provides in the form of available ventilating first-row seats. If you were to choose the Escape, you won’t find such accommodations, making those summer road trips a bit less enjoyable.

Performance

Finally, we come to what you’ve been waiting to hear about. Given that both the Jeep Cherokee and Ford Escape are available with 2.0L turbo engines, you might initially think that they would be evenly matched, but that is far from the case. In one corner, the Cherokee is raring to crank out 270-hp and 295 lb.-ft. of torque, whereas its competitor from Ford only manages to squeeze 245-hp and 275 lb.-ft. of torque out of its 2.0L EcoBoost® engine. As a result, it can only offer a 3,500-lb. towing capacity3.  Thankfully, the Jeep has you covered with its 4,500-lb. towing capacity4. As if this superior strength weren’t already enough, the Cherokee seals the deal with its competitive 31 MPG hwy5 when equipped with this turbo engine, leaving the Escape and its 29 MPG hwy6 rating in the dust.

So, between the 2019 Jeep Cherokee vs 2019 Ford Escape in Fort Gratiot, MI, which do you think is better? Here at Moran Automotive, we prefer the Jeep! If you agree with us, stop by for a test drive during our business hours.

Great and friendly service department! Waiting room has nice amenities like free popcorn, coffee, hot chocolate. Also two vending machines for pop and snacks. Showroom has quite a few sales people that are willing to answer questions if you have them or let you browse if you're just taking a look. Overall pretty good experience for coming in for an oil change even if there was a decent wait with an appointment.

Would definitely recommend!
