2015 Jeep Cherokee vs. 2015 Ford Escape
Which SUV offers the best in terms of efficiency, power, and industry recognition? The 2015 Jeep Cherokee or the 2015 Ford Escape? Drivers in Estevan, Indian Head, and throughout Canada love the outdoors and love their SUVs, but they also love getting the best deal possible. That’s why we want to let you know how superior the Jeep Cherokee promises to be.
The 2015 Jeep Cherokee has an outstanding pedigree. In 2014, 80 respected and thorough automotive journalists put 18 SUVs under intense scrutiny and through an intense battery of tests. When all was said and done, the 2014 Cherokee was honoured with the award for Best New SUV or CUV for Under $35,000 and acknowledged as the 2014 Canadian Utility Vehicle of the Year by the Automobile Journalists Association of Canada.
The 2014 Escape won no accolades from this contest. While this doesn’t necessarily reflect on the 2015 Ford Escape, the precedent it established is clear.
The 2015 Ford Escape is capable of delivering 10.9 L/100 km in the city and 7.6L/100 km on the highway with its base 2.5L I-4 engine. The 2015 Jeep Cherokee’s standard 2.4L I-4 engine and class-exclusive nine-speed transmission delivers 10.9 L/100 km in the city and 7.7L/100 km. It’s a wash, in other words. That said, you won’t find a nine-speed transmission in the Escape.
Plenty of Power
The 2015 Ford Escape has three engine choices:
- The 2.5L Duratec
- The 1.6L EcoBoost
- The 2.0L EcoBoost
The 2015 Jeep Cherokee offers drivers two engine options:
- The 3.2L Pentastar VVT V6
- The 2.4L Tigershark MultiAir I-4
The 2015 Ford Escape can provide up to 240 hp. The 2015 Jeep Cherokee? Up to 271 hp. And the outstanding torque provided by the Cherokee gives it a best-in-class towing capacity of up to 2,041 kg.
