2018 Ford Escape vs Nissan Rogue

We know what SUV shoppers in Newtown, Langhorne, and Southampton need in their next vehicle. Where can you find a vehicle that combines impressive performance, interior convenience, and a plethora of safety and security features?

Not one but two SUVs fit this description. In this comparison, you can learn more about how the 2018 Ford Escape and the 2018 Nissan Rogue stack up against each other in these important categories. Let's get started by looking under the hoods of these two vehicles!

Escape vs Rogue: Performance Specifications

In the 2018 Ford Escape, you'll have three high-performing engines to choose from: the standard 2.5L iVCT 4-cylinder engine, an available 1.5L EcoBoost® engine, and an available 2.0L Twin Scroll EcoBoost®. With the two available engines, you'll be able to enjoy an Auto Start-Stop feature that turns off the engine when you're at a standstill to conserve gas.

You'll not only have enhanced efficiency, thanks to this feature, but you'll also have plenty of power when you have the right equipment. The Escape has the potential to put out an incredible 245 horsepower and 275 lb-ft of torque, allowing for a maximum towing capacity of 3,500 pounds.

If you go with the 2018 Nissan Rogue, you won't get quite as many perks or as great of performance. With only one engine to offer, a 2.5L 4-cylinder, this vehicle can only put out 170 horsepower and 175 lb-ft of toque. This will only give just 1,102 pounds of maximum towing capability.

Escape vs Rogue: Interior Convenience

Whether you're off-roading or heading down the road for some groceries, SUV drivers prioritize convenience. Luckily, both the 2018 Ford Escape and the 2018 Nissan Rogue deliver with features like 60/40 split-folding rear seats and available dual-zone electronic automatic temperature controls.

Maximize your packing space with the former feature and ensure that all your passengers are comfortable no matter what their temperature preferences are with the latter feature. All you have to do is set the temperature for your zone and let this smart system automatically adjust it for you.

The Escape, however, takes it one step further with a standard 10-way power-adjustable driver seat in three out of its four trims. You'll also get a 10-way power-adjustable passenger seat in the top trim. The Rogue, on the other hand, offers on an 8-way power driver seat and 4-way manual passenger seat.

Escape vs Rogue: Safety & Security

Both the Ford Escape and the Nissan Rogue offer a variety of features that help keep you safe while protecting your investment. With standard rearview cameras in both vehicles, you can back up and park with confidence without having to worry how close you are to the vehicle behind you.

Additionally, you'll have other features on your side like standard brake assist and Tire Pressure Monitoring systems. These systems use advanced sensors to monitor your vehicle and let you know when something is amiss or automatically react on their own.

One feature you'll miss out on in the Rogue is an available SecuriCode™ invisible keypad. If you need to get into your Escape in a pinch and don't have your keys, just punch in the code and you'll be able to get in.
