2021 Jeep Compass vs Ford Escape

Do you need an SUV that can handle anything you throw at it? Are there too many options on the market for you to narrow down? We understand that the entire process of getting a new vehicle can be difficult, especially if you aren’t sold on a specific brand. We are here to hopefully help you find the right SUV for your life. That’s why we’re checking out the 2021 Jeep Compass and the 2021 Ford Escape. The Compass makes an immediate statement with the debut of the 80th Anniversary Edition, along with more driver aids, true off-roading capabilities, and all of the options you could possibly want to add on. The Escape tries to keep up with generic styling, additional features to some of the available packages, and an excellent ride quality. Keep reading to see which SUV comes out on top.

2021 Jeep Compass Power & Handling

In order to give you the most comprehensive look at the Compass, we want to start by discussing the standard engine that you will be able to find underneath the hood. The first thing we want to say is that this engine comes in two different configurations. The first is front-wheel drive with a six-speed automatic transmission. The second is all-wheel drive matched with a nine-speed automatic transmission. The engine itself is a 2.4-liter 4-cylinder, which can output around 180 horsepower and 175 pound-feet of torque. You will have all of the capability you need with the 2021 Compass, we can guarantee it off of this engine alone.

2021 Ford Escape Power & Handling

The Ford Escape comes with two engines. The base engine is a turbocharged 1.5-liter inline-3, which outputs 181 hp and 190 pound-feet of torque. The other engine is a turbocharged 2.0-liter inline-4, cranking out 250 hp and 280 lb-ft of torque. Front-wheel drive is standard, with all-wheel drive being made available. It’s easy for anyone to see that this is an SUV that was not made for off-roading, and is better to just keep on pavement.
