2019 Jeep Compass vs 2019 Ford Escape

Serving Gillette, WY

The fact that the 2019 Jeep Compass ranks #6 among extra-small SUVs says something about its popularity and value. In comparison, the 2019 Ford Escape ranks #10. In 2019, the Jeep Compass doesn’t get too many changes. This year, its interior materials and technology get minor improvements. Otherwise, you’ll find some change in feature availability across the trim levels. In 2019, the Jeep Compass remains mostly the same as it was in 2018. The impressive lineup remains the same, with the Jeep Compass Trailhawk proudly retaining its title as one of the most capable off-road vehicles around. The Ford Escape, on the other hand, gets a standard infotainment system this year, but no other noteworthy changes.

Exterior Features

First impressions matter. Fortunately, with its rugged exterior and adventurous attitude, the 2019 Jeep Compass has no problem winning fans at first glance. While some SUVs are dressed up with robust exterior amenities that don’t match in function, that’s not the case with the latest Jeep Compass. The 2019 Jeep Compass is designed to play hard and look good with a broad range of exterior accessories. The Compass carries over some of the brand’s signature elements, including its distinctive headlights and front grille. But well-planned creases, curves, and rounded edges give the Compass a distinctly modern look. Chrome accents grace the exterior on all sides, which lends the Compass a timeless elegance that quickly takes you from the trails to the city. Nine paint colors and multiple wheel options provide a wider variety of custom finishes. While the 2019 Ford Edge provides some opportunities for a custom finish, it doesn’t have the same level of durability or off-road capabilities as the Compass.

Interior Amenities

No matter where you travel in the 2019 Jeep Compass, its well-equipped cabin gets you comfortably and effortlessly to your destination. All the features and amenities you could need are placed within easy reach for convenience and safety. This includes a user-friendly and responsive touchscreen, which can be upgraded from the standard screen to the 8.4-inch display with features like Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, navigation, smartphone compatibility, and more. A sunroof and leather seats, offered in multiple color schemes, will give your Jeep Compass just the look you’re searching for. The Compass is also available with a premium sound system featuring a subwoofer and multi-channel amplifier that cranks out the tunes when you want them. A separate seven-inch driver infotainment display screen, which is an available feature, adds to the Jeep’s interior décor. In comparison to the Compass’s luxurious interior, the cabin of the 2019 Ford Edge is a bit outdated. Its technology is not as up-to-date, and its cabin has an overall less user-friendly design.

Performance

When it comes to performance, the 2019 Jeep Compass puts on a show. The Compass features a 2.4L engine that produces up to 180 HP. This engine, which allows the Compass to tow up to 2,000 pounds, also generates up to 175 LB-FT of torque. A nine-speed transmission, which is available on models with 4×4, provides an even more performance-oriented driving experience with optimized engine output and smooth power production. The Ford Edge comes with a less powerful base engine, which is a 1.5L engine that produces 179 HP at 6,000 RPM. The sole transmission offered is a six-speed automatic.

If you’re searching for a sporty, off-road ready car in 2019 that can handle the toughest trails and still look stylish driving through town, the 2019 Jeep Compass is a perfect choice.
