Drivers looking for a confident compact crossover with a lot of versatility may be interested in one of the models in this 2019 Jeep Compass vs 2019 Ford Escape comparison. Each of these options can be a practical daily transportation option for drivers who crave the taller ride height, interior space, and handling of a crossover. But which one is better for demanding daily driving or weekend off-roading needs? Time and again we feel that the 2019 Jeep Compass excels.
While it is confident in daily driving, for drivers who crave off-roading power it is really the only option. With the elite 2019 Jeep Compass Trailhawk trim, drivers can enjoy up to 19 inches of water fording, standard Hill Descent Control, Jeep Active Drive Low 4x4 drive with a 20:1 crawl ratio, skid plates, front and rear red tow hooks, and impressive approach, breakover and departure angles.
While the Jeep naturally excels in this 2019 Jeep Compass vs 2019 Ford Escape comparison when it comes to off-roading, it also offers confident daily driving advantages. It starts strong out of the gate with a lower starting Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price than its Ford rival, while also offering a more powerful base engine with its 2.4-liter four-cylinder rated for 180 horsepower, 175 pound-feet of torque, and up to 2,000 pounds of towing when properly equipped. This powertrain can also deliver up to 23 mpg in city driving and 32 mpg on the highway. While the 2019 Ford Escape offers three different engine options and can offer more towing potential with its top 2.0-liter EcoBoost powertrain, this engine is only available on the elite Titanium trim.
Other highlights of the 2019 Jeep Compass include the Uconnect infotainment system with either a standard 7-inch display or the elite 8.4-inch model, available Advanced Brake Assist with Full-Speed Forward Collision Warning with Active Braking, and unique Jeep branding on all models.
