Top Photo: Vehicle shown is the 2017 Ford Escpae Titanium in White Gold.
When you’re ready to choose which midsize SUV works best for your family, you want to ensure that it doesn’t leave out any of your must-haves. Luckily for you, the Escape covers all of the basics, and so much more! Here at Prestige Ford, we are so confident that you’ll absolutely love this vehicle that we put it up against one of its worthy competitors: the Nissan Rogue. This way, you’ll be able to see how these two SUVs measure up against one another. Stop by your nearby Ford dealer today to find out just what the Escape has in store.
Under the hood of both vehicles lies a ready-to-take-charge 2.5L 4-cylinder engine. The Rogue and the Escape provide you with similar powertrains, however, Ford’s midsize SUV is able to offer a much more efficient performance. With its 15.7-gallon fuel tank capacity, the Escape can hold more gas between fill-ups when compared to the Rogue’s smaller 14.5-gallon fuel threshold. Furthermore, the Nissan Rogue limits you to one engine option, whereas the Escape offers a whole lineup of noteable powertrains. In addition to its 2.5L 4-cylinder version, you’re also able to equip it with the 1.5L EcoBoost® option or the 2.0L Twin-Scroll EcoBoost® powerhouse. The larger option takes your breath away by generating a heart-stopping 245 horsepower1 and 275 lb.-ft. of torque1. On the other hand, the most that the Rogue can give you is 170 horsepower and 175 lb.-ft. of torque.
The interior of the Escape is commodious and packed with all of the features you could ever need. Feel free to pack up the Escape’s back cargo unit with all of your golf equipment before you head out to Buffalo Creek Golf Club, as it offers up to 34 cu. ft. of storage volume behind the rear seats. However, the most you’ll get in the Nissan Rogue when all of the seats are in place is 32 cu. ft. of stow-away room2, which means you’ll most likely not be able to bring all of your daily necessities along for the ride. Up front, you’ll have a little more space to stretch out in the Ford Escape, since it features 43.1 inches of front legroom, whereas the Rogue only has 43 inches of front legroom.
In the base trim of the 2017 Escape, you’ll have access to Ford’s multimedia system SYNC®3 with voice recognition. You can stream your own playlist, connect to your phone contacts, and much more, all without having to take your hands off of the wheel. However, Nissan’s system is only available in the higher trim levels of the Rogue. You may think that the Rogue’s 6-way power-adjustable driver’s seat sounds worthwhile, but the Ford Escape outdoes its competition once again by incorporating a driver’s seat with a 10-way power function in its higher versions.
It’s safe to say that the Ford Escape takes home the win in this head-to-head between the 2017 Ford Escape vs 2017 Nissan Rogue in Garland, TX.
