If you are looking for a compact SUV that meets the needs of your busy family, you’ve likely considered the 2019 Jeep Compass vs. 2019 Ford Escape. While both vehicles definitely have their merits, the 2019 Jeep Compass specs outshine what the Escape has to offer in many areas. Let’s take a closer look at these models head-to-head in our SUV comparison below.



Safety

When it comes to safety, the 2019 Jeep Compass is the better bet. In IIHS 40 MPH small overlap frontal offset crash tests, the Jeep Compass earned a score of GOOD. The Ford Escape fell a bit short with a rating of ACCEPTABLE.

The Jeep Compass can also anticipate a crash and will adjust the seatbelts accordingly with help from its pre-crash front seatbelts. The seatbelts tighten automatically if a potential crash is detected. This feature is not available with the 2019 Ford Escape. It’s just another advantage that makes Jeeps safer than their competitors.


Performance

Jeep vehicles are known for their performance prowess, and the 2019 Compass is no exception. Its standard 2.4L DOHC four-cylinder engine delivers an impressive 180 hp. If you opt for the Ford Escape, you can expect only 168 hp from a 2.5L DOHC four-cylinder engine.

For enhanced performance, the Jeep Compass 4X4 can be outfitted with a nine-speed automatic transmission for smooth handling on the Danville and Reidsville, NC roads. A six-speed automatic is the most robust transmission option available with the 2019 Ford Escape.
