2014 Nissan Rogue vs. 2015 Ford Escape Review

Comparison Review


Comfort
Passengers in the back seat may find themselves a little more cramped in the Nissan Rogue than the Ford Escape. The Nissan Rogue offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Ford Escape, making it a little more comfortable for the driver and front passenger.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Nissan Rogue as you will with the Ford Escape, as they are both able to travel similar distances on a tank of gas.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). When looking only at MSRP, the Nissan Rogue will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Ford Escape. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. In this case, the Nissan Rogue will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Ford Escape.

Dimensions
The Nissan Rogue is about the same width as the Ford Escape. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Nissan Rogue, which is slightly longer than the Ford Escape.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque engine, the Nissan Rogue doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Ford Escape.

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the Ford Escape is clearly the choice over the Nissan Rogue for pulling heavy loads. When it comes to horsepower, the Nissan Rogue has a lot less horsepower than the Ford Escape.

Utility
The Nissan Rogue offers greater seating capacity than the Ford Escape, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries in the Nissan Rogue as you will in the Ford Escape.

Warranty
The Nissan Rogue comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Ford Escape.
