2021 Jeep Compass vs 2021 Ford Escape

Your next adventure involves selecting either the 2021 Jeep Compass or the 2021 Ford Escape, so that you can escape from your driving doldrums. Nothing’s more exciting than motoring around Saline, Ypsilanti, and Ann Arbor, Michigan, in a new ride. So, LaFontaine Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram of Saline looked to see which SUV is more ready to romp.

Jeep Compass vs Ford Escape Trim Levels

If you’re seeking variety, the new Compass provides you with four traditional trims including Sport, Latitude, Limited, and Trailhawk. Three limited edition trims can be selected as well: Freedom, Altitude, and 80th Anniversary.

The Ford Escape supplies only four trim levels, which include S, SE, SEL, and Titanium. Those trims may not contain enough variety to tailor what you want in a car.

Jeep Compass vs Ford Escape Safety

2021 Jeep CompassExterior safety gadgets manage the unusual weather that may occur from time to time. A ParkView® Rear Back Up Camera in the Jeep and a Rear View Camera in the Ford streamlines your ability to back out of a space or your driveway.

If you’re encountering any type of precipitation, heated exterior mirrors in the Jeep melt the frost while available rain-sensing windshield wipers get to the rain before you reach for the wiper wand. Even the wipers get to thaw out with an optional windshield wiper de-icer.

Heated sideview mirrors do not come standard in the Ford, plus you cannot get a de-icer for your windshield wipers. While you can add rain-sensing windshield wipers, they are only available on one trim.

To command your SUV, use the integrated Voice Command with Bluetooth® in the Jeep. The Ford does offer Voice-Activated Navigation, but it’s not a standard feature.

Jeep Compass vs Ford Escape Performance

Both vehicles offer potent engines, but their capabilities do differ. With the Compass, you can upgrade to a 9-speed automatic transmission while the Ford gives you an 8-speed automatic transmission option.

Off-roaders will prefer the Jeep because it can be equipped with a 4×4 powertrain. This setup enables you to add the Jeep Active Drive Low 4×4 system that supplies you with a 20:1 crawl ratio and low range for their signature Trail Rated® capability. Neither the powertrain nor this system or anything like it comes in the Ford.

Jeep Compass vs Ford Escape Interior

2021 Jeep CompassLittle things matter when you see the interior of both SUVs. Dual-Zone Automatic Temperature Control circulates the air in your cabin and enables both front seat riders individual controls. While the Ford offers this item, it’s only available, not standard.

Passengers do not come second in the Jeep Compass. They can get their own available 8-way power passenger seat that matches with the complimentary 8-way power driver’s seat. In the Ford, your passenger must settle for an optional 6-way power front-passenger seat.
