Compact as the 2022 Ford Escape may be classified, you will surely be wowed by the space you get inside once you experience riding it. Add to that, there is plenty of room in the cargo area, and that long list of technologies will also impress. The Jeep Compass 2022 edition also has spacious seats to offer, and boasts of a reliable infotainment technology as well. Between these two cars, which is better? Let us find out the answer through this comparison of the two.
Design & Style
When you put these two cars side by side, you will notice that the 2022 Ford Escape already wins in terms of exterior dimensions. Not only is it longer and wider than the 2022 Jeep Compass; it is taller as well. When it comes to the cargo area, the 37.5-cubic feet measurement of the Ford adds more points to it because that is definitely larger than the Jeep’s 27.2 cubic feet of cargo hold.
Looking at the Jeep Compass’ cabin, you will find it more upscale, at least when compared to its predecessors. Thanks to the soft plastic surfaces found inside it. Wait until you see the better-quality materials used for the Escape’s cabin construction and you will praise the ride even more. Both cars promise to sit five, but the Compass makes rear visibility a problem, and so is rear-seat occupancy.
Technology & Safety
Basically, the 2022 Ford Escape uses the SYNC infotainment system with a 4.2-inch infotainment display. That said, you have the option to upgrade to the eight-inch touch configuration if you feel the basic setup does not suit your needs. This also features six speakers, multiple USB ports, and a WiFi hot spot in its list of standard equipment. For its driver aids, you get blind spot monitoring, rear cross traffic alert, lane keep assist, and lane departure warning.
The Jeep Compass is gifted with a Uconnect infotainment interface paired with an 8.4-inch touch screen display. It also offers wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto as standard equipment inclusions. It does not offer the driver drowsiness monitoring that is standard to the 2022 Ford Escape.
The 2022 Ford Escape is given an inline-three base engine that can rate up to 181 horsepower. These results are much better than the Compass’ inline-four engine result of 177 horsepower. Fuel-efficiency wise, the Ford gets 28 mpg and 34 mpg for city and highway driving, respectively while the Jeep has 22 mpg and 31 mpg for the said terrains.
The Bottom Line
When looking at the two rides, you can place them at a tie position for overall design and style. Nonetheless, the 2022 Ford Escape takes the lead in terms of safety features and engine performance. The winner of this battle is no less than the Ford.
