2020 Jeep Compass vs Ford Escape

Are you looking for your next vehicle but are unsure as to where to start? Well, we highly recommend looking at SUVs. These vehicles, thanks to their utility nature, can do just about anything that you want them to. The next question becomes, which SUV should you be getting? Today we are going to be focusing on two of the top models: the 2020 Jeep Compass and the 2020 Ford Escape. The Compass gets you a great tim level lineup, a new exterior color, off-roading capabilities, and an available Safety Security and Advanced Group for the Sport trim. The Escape gets you driver-assistance features, no sporty trim option, and second-row sliding seats. Keep reading to find out more!

2020 Jeep Compass Power & Handling

Everyone wants to be reassured that the vehicle they are driving has an engine that is up for any task. That is why Jeep vehicles have always been at the top of people's lists, thanks to the standard engines that they make sure their SUVs are equipped with. In the case of the 2020 Jeep Compass, you will be getting a 2.4-liter 4-cylinder, which enables you to get up to 180 horsepower, and around 175 pound-feet of torque. To really make this engine better, you will be able to choose from three different transmissions, and either two-wheel or four-wheel drive. Those transmissions include a six-speed manual, a six-speed automatic, or a nine-speed automatic.

2020 Ford Escape Power & Handling

Ford attempts to compete with the Compass by offering two gasoline engines. The base engine here is a 1.5-liter 4-cylinder, which can create 177 pound-feet of torque, and around 180 horsepower. The engine itself is pretty lackluster, not giving you the kind of pep you want. The other engine you can get is a 2.0-liter 4-cylinder, which offers 280 pound-feet of torque, and around 250 horsepower. Both FWD and AWD are available. While it's great to have two engines available, the one standard engine that comes with the Compass is worth buying instead.

2020 Jeep Compass Features & Design

Beyond just power and capability, styling and technology are major foundations for why people purchase vehicles. Luckily, the Jeep Compass has those in spades. With the Compass, you will be able to find a few different trim levels, which each get their own lineup of features that you are sure to love. Standard features include a 7-inch touchscreen with a Uconnect 4 system, heated side mirrors, Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, and 16-inch wheels. For something that can really conquer off-roading environments, you'll want Trailhawk. This trim includes skid plates, Selec-Terrain, an off-road suspension, and all-terrain tires.

2020 Ford Escape Features & Design

The Ford Escape has a few available trim levels to choose from, too. Some of the standard features with this SUV include Ford co-Pilot360 safety features, second-row sliding seats, selectable drive modes, and a 4.5-inch display monitor. You might also want to look at SE, which is a trim that gains an 8-inch touchscreen, heated front seats, keyless entry, Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, and evasive-steering assist. Finally, some higher available features include a heated leather steering wheel, dual-zone climate control, and a Bang & Olufsen audio system.


We highly recommend driving home in the 2020 Jeep Compass. This SUV has proven its worth with a great standard engine and a trim lineup that comes with all of the safety and comfort that you could ever need.
