2017 Ford Escape vs 2017 Jeep Cherokee in Garland, TX

2017 Ford Escape vs 2017 Jeep Cherokee in Garland, TX*Vehicle shown above is a 2017 Ford Escape Titanium. 

If you crave adventure in every moment of your day, there’s only one compact SUV that truly prevails over its rival enough to be the reigning champion of restless wandering. Take a look at how the 2017 Ford Escape stacks up against its opponent, the 2017 Jeep Cherokee, in this comparison in Garland, TX. When you’ve seen how the Escape dominates in every category, there’s nothing left to do but come on over to Prestige Ford for a test drive.

Interior amenities define the Escape’s technological advancements, as a slew of them come standard for your convenience. Though the Cherokee does offer the option for steering wheel-mounted audio controls, the Escape doesn’t even question it, making sure this feature is standard to enhance your focus on the road ahead by helping you manage your entertainment more fluidly. Though you might find slight comfort in the Cherokee’s available 8-way power-adjustable driver’s seat, the Escape does one better by offering an optional 10-way power-adjustable driver’s seat to keep you as relaxed as possible.

Each SUV carries a 5-passenger seating capacity, but which one prevails in the category of cargo space? If you guessed the 2017 Escape, you’ll be pleased to know that it offers a massive 34.3 cubic ft. of room2 behind its second row, so you can bring along all of the essentials for a day spent out on Lake Ray Hubbard. Loading up the 2017 Jeep Cherokee won’t be quite as easy, as it only includes 24.6 cubic ft. of cargo space3 for your items. And, though the Cherokee does expand to 58.9 cubic ft. of volume3 when you utilize its 60/40-folding split recline seat, the 2017 Ford Escape does one better by widening to a stunning 67.8 cubic ft. of cargo room2.

With a standard Rear View Camera4 equipped within the Escape, all of your reverses will be perfected by the live-image and guidelines projected onto the touchscreen in the center stack of what is happening behind the vehicle. Unfortunately, the Jeep Cherokee only offers its ParkView™ Rear Back-Up Camera5 as an available amenity, so you’ll have to upgrade to include this feature on the vehicle. If you’ve had a long trip that went from sunny to starry, you might not notice your lack of lighting until very late. As the sun sets over Forest Lane, the Ford Escape’s automatic headlights will illuminate your path without your instruction. The 2017 Cherokee doesn’t include this automatic functionality, so you’ll have to manually turn on your headlamps when it grows dark.

With the Escape coming in hot to our showroom as the more commanding compact SUV, you can satisfy your wanderlust by getting behind the wheel of this vehicle as soon as today at Prestige Ford. The battle between the 2017 Ford Escape vs 2017 Jeep Cherokee in Garland, TX, is sure to convince you how the former is the more worthy opponent. We are located at 3601 S. Shiloh Road in Garland, TX, so make sure to test drive the Escape when you stop by.

I wish I could give them 10 stars!

I wish I could give them 10 stars!!! Truly and honestly the best dealership and car buying experience we could have ever had. Everyone we spoke to was incredibly friendly, nice and knowledgeable. Our salesman Ian Wortham was truly the best we have ever worked with and will never go to another dealership again!!! He went above and beyond to find us what we wanted for the price we were looking for. Before we showed up he had vehicles pulled up for us with different options as well as what we were looking at price wise for those vehicles. He did all of that for us in less than an hour of us calling and arriving to meet with him! They have excellent communication skills, follow through with what they say and will do anything to make you comfortable and satisfied with your purchase. The finance and insurance department was great to work with and loved meeting and working with everyone there. Their employees truly act like they want to be there and enjoy working at their dealership. We will be recommending Prestige Ford to all of our friends and family and will never go to another dealership again! We can’t say thank you enough!!!

Great Staff!

The sales man, was very,very nice and educational. Explained everything about a ford fusion in complete detail, and I also test drove the car, nice smooth ride but, I didn't like the positioning of the seats they were very uncomfortable. Ive gotta be able sit comfortably on the car especially since I drive outta town a lot. I loved the car though.

I went up here to see what I could do to get a newer vehicle based on a trade in. It turned out that this company has very very very very good customer service and the sales reps. They are very informative, respectful , honest and to the point. Brandon and Greg along with the financial loan guy included. Made me feel like a two-year-old. By walking me though the process and assuring me the whole way that everything would work itself out. I was skeptical at first but by the end. I was a believer that this company and the way they it's set up with their salespeople. This has to be a good company. They made me feel like it's not all about the bottom dollar it was more about customer service. I thank them for that what a breath of fresh air. I will refer people and I will be back. What an eye opener, they care about getting you in a new car and care about you coming back thanks guys.

Highly recommend this dealership and the management team is amazing!

Experienced shopper. My original sales guy (no longer there) made this experience not the greatest but the sales manager and signing manager and everyone else I felt with made this experience a great one. Not only did they beat every other dealerships pricing but gave a good and fair trade, helped me get the options I wanted and went even further beyond after the sale to make me happy. They matched competitor pricing on some aftermarket work on my truck (lift and tires) and along the way made me feel like part of their family. Highly recommend this dealership and the management team is amazing! 1

I had a wonderful experience and Ian, my salesman, was refreshing to work with. He got me the vehicle I wanted and made me feel comfortable. No pressure or old school sales tactics with him. It was the best car buying experience I’ve had thus far. The gentleman in the financing department was pleasant to work with as well. He offered options and explained why they were offered and didn’t badger me! I will refer anyone looking for a new car to Ian’s at Prestige Ford, hands down.

David in the service department was AMAZING! He was very aware of our situation at all times and called me when there was an update on my car. Said it would be a week wait but they finished in 3 days! Even when I had a hard time at check-out, the customer service rep was very alert and made sure I had a great experience and followed up with me afterward. Their service department is fantastic and if you can, ask for David!

Great Work!

Looked all over DFW for a F-150. Went to 10 different dealerships within the past 8 months, and this place was by far the best place to do business with. Xaiver (Salesman), Sean ( Sales Manager), and Luis (Finance) were all easy to negotiate with. They just wanted to make the best deal possible with you, to fit your budget. Real good people to work with. Recommending coming here for a vehicle.

Hard workers!

“My sales person, Kelly Mcneill- Graham, was very fast at getting back to me when I first inquired about the truck through the internet. She gave me her cell # to call when I would be arriving at the dealership and met me promptly. She got me through the sales process quickly as I had requested. She even brought the truck out to a half way location to deliver it and take back the trade in when it came time to pick up the truck. She really had her patience tested dealing with my requests and she was courteous through it all and delivered the truck at the advertised price. Very straight forward and didn't waste my time. I will recommend her and the Prestige Ford dealership in Garland. Thanks for the pleasant and rapid experience. - Andrew Rhoads”
