Quickly Compare the Jeep Cherokee Against the Ford Escape in Milford

Choosing a compact SUV doesn't have to be a difficult decision, but with so many options to choose from, how can you be sure you're getting the capable, adventure-ready, and value-packed SUV? When it comes to your life in Easton MD, Millsboro DE, or even the Georgetown DE area, the right choice is the Jeep Cherokee, and we'll show you why!


Adventure-Ready Performance

It's no secret that Jeep vehicles are built to be taken off the pavement, but that doesn't mean you can't still enjoy the on-road comforts that you want for your daily driving. The Jeep Cherokee offers the versatility of off-road readiness, with smooth and comfortable driving dynamics for daily life. A few key points to consider with the Jeep Cherokee vs the Ford Escape:

  • The Jeep Cherokee earns an EPA-estimated 22 mpg city and 31 mpg highway rating
  • The Ford Escape only earns 21 mpg city and 29 mpg highway.
  • The Cherokee offers a 2,000-pound max towing capacity
  • The Ford Escape can only tow 1,500 pounds.

They do both offer four-cylinder engines, but the Cherokee offers 180 horsepower, while the Escape's four-cylinder engine offers just 168 horsepower. This is only a small difference, but a difference that you'll notice around town in Lewes, and thanks to the nine-speed automatic transmission of your Cherokee, you'll enjoy your daily driving even more. The Escape is also slightly taller, so you end up with a SUV-like driving feel that can feel a bit unstable, especially if you're off-roading.

Where the Jeep Cherokee really shines is in the off-road performance. The Escape, try as it might, just really can't compete with the specialized tuning and off-road capabilities of the Jeep Cherokee. Take your Cherokee through snow, mud, dirt, sand, or rocks around Salisbury MD, and you'll see the clear difference.

Interior Features and Cargo Space

When it comes to your next SUV, the comforts and interior features are key, and the Jeep Cherokee won't disappoint. You'll love the supportive seats, and practical nature of the interior that doesn't rely on flashy materials. You can still have nice materials like a leather-wrapped steering wheel, that's also heated, to add to your premium feel. The Escape doesn't offer these, and you'll also miss out on the heated side mirrors available on the Jeep Cherokee. For you cargo-carrying needs, the Jeep Cherokee offers a passenger space of 54.7-cubic feet, which is enough for all of your adventure gear, packing up for a move, or anything else you can think of. The Escape offers nearly 70 cubic feet, but both offer a spacious cargo area behind the rear seats, so you can load up your passengers and friends for a weekend getaway with ease in Dover.


The UConnect infotainment system has been improved and upgraded from previous years, taking into consideration all the input we've had from drivers, making this system better than ever. The SYNC 3® system available on the Ford Escape was once one of the top favorites for systems, but we think the Uconnect system will give it a run for its money. Both offer touchscreen displays, Apple CarPlay< Android Auto, and voice commands, so we think you'll enjoy being able to have a user-friendly and fun-to-drive SUV with all the bells and whistles in Rehoboth Beach.

The Jeep Cherokee comes standard with a rearview camera and parking sensors, the Escape only comes standard with a rearview camera. Both vehicles offer a similar list of available advanced safety technology like adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning, automatic braking, lane departure warning, rear cross-traffic alert, blind-spot monitoring, and more. Your family's safety is key, and with the Jeep Cherokee, you can enjoy the SUV you want with the features you need.
