The market is flooded with countless SUVs, but the 2019 Jeep Cherokee and 2019 Ford Escape are two stunning compact SUVs. These two winners go head-to-head in all the major categories, though there are some differences that will help you decide which option works best for your Rice Lake lifestyle. Let Don Johnson Motors be your guide with this compact SUV comparison.


When it comes to power and performance, the 2019 Cherokee and Escape are pretty evenly matched, each providing a thrilling ride that puts you in control. The Cherokee has a slight advantage here though, edging out the Escape with 180 hp, a towing capacity of up to 4,500 pounds, and max trailering capacity of 2000 pounds. Jeep also gives you a 9-speed automatic transmission compared to the Escape’s 6-speed, which could factor into your Hayward commute.

If you need more power from your SUV, the Jeep Cherokee’s performance may be the choice for you.

Both models seat up to five, and come packed with today’s latest technology and connectivity features, including:

The 2019 Escape gives you more space inside the cabin, with a maximum of 68 cubic feet against the Cherokee’s 54.9 cubic feet. Ford also allows you and your passengers more room to stretch out and relax, with several more inches of legroom, headroom, and more.

If you need more space for your family and friends, the Ford Escape may fit your needs.
