Serving Geneva, NY

Any thorough search for a smaller crossover SUV would not be complete without a comparison between the Jeep Compass and the Ford Escape. The 2020 Compass is a second-generation model with a base MSRP that is slightly lower than the Ford Escape's price. While the Compass is a subcompact crossover SUV, the 2020 Escape is a compact crossover SUV. Are you eager to learn about the many other differences between these two models?


The Compass is a two-row SUV with a small stature and a confident stance. The thin, elongated grille has vertical bars in true Jeep fashion, and the grille is perfectly aligned with the LED headlights. You will find chrome and black accents throughout the exterior. Some trims also have a glossy black roof for added personality. The 2020 Compass has an appealing character with prominent, horizontal sculpting through the door panels, dual exhaust tips mounted on one side, and other features. In comparison, the 2020 Ford Escape has a swooping and relatively smooth hood. This hood trends sharply into the large grille. While the grille and the Escape's nose are flat, the front fascia bends sharply on the sides so that the fog lamps are set back. This crossover SUV also has thick body molding and may have heated side mirrors, chrome window accents, and remote entry in some of the 2020 trims.


These models accommodate five passengers, and their rear row can fold down to enlarge the rear cargo area when needed. The Compass is adequately outfitted with many of the high-end features that you may expect to find in Jeep's larger SUVs. Some of these features are heated front seats, a heated steering wheel, leather material, a dual-pane sunroof, a dual-zone auto temperature control system, a touch display screen, a navigation system, smart device connectivity, and more. The 2020 Escape's interior, on the other hand, has some of these features at the highest trim levels. In most or all trims, you can find a climate management system, power windows, power adjustments for the front seats, a sound system, and other gear.


Differences between the 2020 Jeep Compass and the 2020 Ford Escape extend to their powertrains and capabilities. The Compass is outfitted with a 2.4-liter, I-4 at the lower trim levels, and this engine can produce up to 180 horsepower. The Escape is available with several powertrain possibilities. One of these is a 1.5-liter EcoBoost engine. You can expect both models to come with power steering, front-wheel or all-wheel drive, anti-locking brakes, and numerous advanced safety technologies.
