Ford Escape Against the Competition

SUVs appeal to a variety of vehicle shoppers. For families, the exceptional cargo space benefits road trips, after-school activities and more. For others, their advanced technology, sleek design and extra seating are appealing factors. Whatever the reason, drivers are drawn to the selection of SUV models. At our Lodi dealership, we're helping Waunakee drivers narrow down their search to help pinpoint the features that matter most in their next SUV.

Out of the sea of SUVs, we're going to take some time to talk about two distinctive 2018 models: Ford Escape and Nissan Rogue. Both depict your typical five-seat, spacious SUV, but there are a few differences that give the advantage to one vehicle over the other. These differences touch on engine options, towing capability and overall performance. You shouldn't have to settle for just a spacious SUV, at Bushnell Ford, we want to give you more.



2018 Ford Escape vs. 2018 Nissan Rogue

  • Your Design: You want your SUV to be yours, thus it needs your personal touch. Lodi drivers who choose the Ford Escape will have a 10-option color palette to choose from for their Ford's exterior color, instead of the Rogue's limiting nine-color list. From cinnamon glaze to lightning blue, your Ford Escape will mirror your personality. Plus, choose from six types of fabric, instead of five, for your Escape's seats: three cloths and three leather styles. With Ford's mix-and-match options, you'll end up with a 2018 Ford Escape that resembles your specific tastes.
  • Your Engine: Following the theme of choices, with the 2018 Ford Escape you decide which engine you want out of three reliable options. The Nissan Rogue only comes with one option: the 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine that delivers only 170 horsepower. When you look at the three-engine lineup for the 2018 Ford Escape, the top-ranked 2.0-liter EcoBoost with Twin-Scroll technology produces 245 horsepower. Plus, all Ford EcoBoost engines include the standard Auto Start-Stop Technology that saves fuel during your time on the road.
  • Your Towing: Most associate towing capability with trucks, not SUVs, but not in Ford's opinion. Drivers who opt for the Ford Escape will receive the spacious cargo area they expect paired with the option to haul what and when they need to. Depending on the trim of the Ford Escape, drivers of the Escape Titanium trim will tow a capacity of up to 3,500 pounds with the 2.0-liter EcoBoost and Class II Trailer Tow Package.
  • This doesn't limit the other Escape trims though; the mentioned package gives the Escape SE and SEL trims a maximum towing capability of up to 2,000 pounds. The trailer sway control technology will do its job in detecting and readjusting as necessary to keep the Ford Escape and its trailer on the road where they belong. By buying or leasing the 2018 Ford Escape, shoppers get a classic SUV saddled with this impressive truck-like feature.
