2023 Ford Escape vs. 2023 Jeep Cherokee

2023 Ford Escape

vs 2023 Jeep Cherokee | Paynesville MN

Break free from the ordinary in the new 2023 Ford Escape. If you’ve got big dreams, this small SUV can help you achieve them. Want to take a cross-country road trip? You’ll have a comfortable journey in the Ford Escape, thanks to its available 10-way power driver’s seat. With seating for five, you’ll be able to bring your friends along, and they’ll have plenty of room in the backseat (which can slide backwards to accommodate those with long legs). If you’re starting a new hobby or business that requires lots of supplies, the second-row seats easily fold down to reveal plenty of room for everything you need to carry. No matter what the road ahead holds, your Ford Escape can handle it. Available all-wheel drive (AWD) with AWD Disconnect allows this model to use all four wheels when necessary for improved traction and then switch back to front-wheel drive automatically when AWD is no longer needed. Pretty smart, huh? We know you’ll be impressed by this feature — and everything else the new 2023 Ford Escape has to offer — when you get behind the wheel of this free-spirited SUV.

The new 2023 Jeep Cherokee is another SUV that’s famous for its versatility, but is it really as well-equipped and capable as the new 2023 Ford Escape? Let’s take a look.

With a lower starting MSRP, more available powertrain options and a wider variety of available features, the new 2023 Ford Escape easily defeats the new 2023 Jeep Cherokee. Since the Ford Escape is the more affordable model, you’ll have the budget flexibility to upgrade and add on luxurious features for less. The Ford Escape is ideal for those wanting to drive a green SUV, since it can be equipped with a hybrid or plug-in hybrid powertrain. It also offers more available cargo space (with the rear seats folded) than the Jeep Cherokee does and a massive available center touchscreen display that’s nearly five inches larger than that of its rival. When it comes to technology, the Ford Escape offers two impressive features that the Jeep Cherokee lacks: an available Head-Up Display and an available 360-degree camera view. Both of these features will help you drive more safely, allowing you to keep your eyes on the road and then safely park when you arrive at your destination. Finally, while both SUVs offer impressive sound systems, the Ford Escape brings you one additional speaker for a truly exceptional audio experience.
