The Ford Escape and the Jeep Compass are both popular options for compact crossover SUV shoppers, but they stand apart in the driving experience they deliver. While the 2023 Jeep Compass has a few performance updates, the 2023 Ford Escape is impressively refreshed from end to end and has a few new features. After taking a thorough look at these crossovers, which one will stand out to you as a top option?
Both of the powertrains available for the 2023 Ford Escape produce ample horsepower and have impressive torque ratings. Specifically, the turbocharged three-cylinder engine puts out 180 horsepower and 199 feet-pounds of torque. An eight-speed auto transmission is standard, and all-wheel drive is optional. The other powertrain is a turbo four-cylinder system that generates 250 horsepower and 280 feet-pounds of torque. All-wheel drive is standard with this engine. In comparison, the 2023 Jeep Compass is only available with a 200-horsepower, turbo four-cylinder system, and an eight-speed auto transmission.
The updated look of the 2023 Ford Escape includes deep, modernized contours on the doors and athletic curves through the profile. The grille has been reshaped and has a stunning mesh pattern. The Escape is also designed with multi-elemental LED headlights and tall ports for the foglights. The 2023 Compass, on the other hand, has many standard Jeep design elements, including square wheel wells and a wide grille with rectangular mesh. The Compass is also styled with two additional layers below the grille for a segmented look. The sides are relatively plain with modest accentuation around the fenders and the upper door surfaces.
The Escape is smartly appointed with many premium features and safety technologies. The specific features are trim-dependent, and some of them include a panoramic sunroof, automated parking, a head-up display, smart device app integration, leather upholstery, a Bang & Olufsen audio system, a navigation system, a wireless charging pad, a surround-view camera, and numerous additional features. The Compass has standard equipment like USB ports, smart device app connectivity, a six-speaker audio system, cloth upholstery, and several safety technologies.
