Jeep Grand Cherokee vs Ford Escape

If you're in the market for a full-sized sport utility vehicle, no doubt you've researched both the Jeep Grand Cherokee and the Ford Escape. Both vehicles are popular and well known in the sport utility market, but not for necessarily the same reasons. Let's look at each model closely, so that you can make an informed purchase when it comes time to choose a new sport utility vehicle.


Jeep Grand Cherokee vs Ford Escape: Styling

Stylistically speaking, the Jeep Grand Cherokee and the Ford Escape take very different, yet equally as satisfying, approaches. The Ford Escape has a younger, sportier exterior styling and an interior that sacrifices some space to the Jeep Grand Cherokee. The Jeep Grand Cherokee's exterior styling is legendary. Starting with the first Jeep Grand Cherokee model in 1992, Jeep has made iterative changes to the model that have resulted in a gorgeous looking vehicle that is, at the same time, both refined and rugged. Interior styling of the Jeep Grand Cherokee, however, is decidedly refined over rugged. Featuring leather trim and real wood accents, plus state-of-the-art electronics options, the interior of the Jeep Grand Cherokee is luxurious


Jeep Grand Cherokee vs Ford Escape: Performance

Under the hood, the Ford Escape leaves a little to be desired. Even the largest engine available, the 2.5 L, 4-cylinder Duratec engine is underwhelming when compared to the Jeep Grand Cherokee. The Jeep Grand Cherokee is available in with 3 different, powerful engine configurations:

1. 3.6 L Pentastar V6

2. 5.7 L Hemi V8

3. 6.4 L Hemi V8

Each engine is paired with either a 5, 6 or 8 speed automatic transmission.
