Although we would love to tell you that choosing a new car is easy, the truth is that with so many options available to you, doing sufficient research can sometimes feel like a chore. But here at Jack Ingram Nissan, we don't just stop at creating a hassle-free buying experience. We also want to create a hassle-free research process for you as well, and we do that by frequently doing the research for you and conveniently comparing top models in each segment side-by-side. Here, we're taking a closeup view of the 2018 Nissan Rogue vs the 2018 Ford Escape.
Crossovers are bigger than they've ever been, and they have no signs of slowing down. This is good for you as a buyer because you have plenty of options to choose from, but it's still important to find the right option. Though more affordable than a large SUV, they will use more gas than something smaller, like a sedan. But if fuel economy is what you're after, you can't go wrong with the Rogue. It is capable of 26 mpg city and 33 mpg highway*, which is a significant advantage over the Ford Escape.
2018 Nissan Rogue
2018 Ford Escape
|Up to 26 city/33 hwy*||MPG||Up to 23 city/30 hwy|
|106 cubic feet||Passenger Volume||98 cubic feet|
|70.0 cubic feet||Cargo Volume||67.8 cubic feet|
|40-20-40 split||Rear Seat Type||60-40 split|
Of course, since we're talking about crossovers, you're going to expect your new vehicle to be significantly more spacious inside, for both cargo and passengers. Unfortunately, this is where the Ford Escape disappoints, in particular. With 98 cubic feet of passenger room, the Escape barely improves upon the typical sedan, while the Rogue has a comfortable 106 cubic feet. Despite the edge in space for passengers, the Rogue also has an edge in cargo volume.
We also can't forget to mention some of the features that come standard on the Rogue but not the Escape, giving you excellent value, such as an auxiliary port for your music, a rear seat armrest, dual seatback storage pockets and a blind spot monitoring system. But, to really get a feel for why the 2018 Nissan Rogue has an edge of the 2018 Ford Escape, the best thing you can do is contact us at Jack Ingram Nissan for a test drive.
