If there is one thing to look forward to in the 2022 Ford Escape, that will be its remarkable gas mileage. It also is fitted with a great amount of space both inside the cabin and behind its seats.

That of the 2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee boasts of a long list of standard features, but does this mean that it is better than its ford counterpart? Let us find out the answer to this question as we go along reading this page.

Design & Style

The 2022 Ford Escape wins the battle when it comes to cargo hold, even if both promise a large space in that arena. This is for the reason that the Cherokee can only hold 25.8 cubic feet at that area, while the Escape is blessed with 38.7 cubic feet for its standard configuration.

The Ford is gifted with soft-touch surfaces and the best-quality materials for its cabin. It gains points because the car with the five-seating capacity leaves enough room for passengers to move about even during longer trips. There is even a rear seat sliding capability for this SUV.  

In the case of the interiors for the Cherokee, it is hard not to notice how its outdated look seem to diminish its points in this aspect. While the ride provides ample room in front, the rear seats say otherwise.

Technology & Safety

The 2022 Ford Escape may be using a 4.2-inch display for its SYNC infotainment system, but that does not mean you cannot settle for that. Even if you do not favor that base setup, there is an option to upgrade to an eight-inch touch screen setup paired with a 12.3-inch digital gauge cluster. It also offers safety features like rear cross traffic alert, blind spot monitoring, driver drowsiness monitoring, and pedestrian detection.

For the Jeep Cherokee 2022 edition, it uses an 8.4-inch touch screen display paired with its Uconnect system. This one is praised for displaying crisp graphics too. Voice recognition is included as a standard, and so are safety aids like the ones the Sport offers, except for the MyKey.


The 2022 Ford Escape is gifted with a three-cylinder engine that is capable of registering up to 181 horsepower. It scores 28/34 for city/highway driving. That of the Cherokee simply lags behind with results of only up to 180 horsepower for the standard setup. It scores lower in terms of fuel efficiency with ratings of 23 for city driving and 31 for highway driving.

The Bottom Line

Looking at the comparison made above, you will notice that the 2022 Ford Escape is better in all aspects when compared to the 2022 Jeep Cherokee. It is more advanced in terms of technologies and design, and better in terms of overall engine performance, with fuel efficiency ratings considered.
