2019 Nissan Rogue vs. 2019 Ford Escape

Learn How the Nissan Rogue Compares to its Middlebury, CT Competition

It's been awhile since we put the Nissan Rogue up against the Ford Escape in a head-to-head comparison, so we thought we'd take another look at how these two crossover SUVs stack up against each other when it comes to the factors that matter most to our friends and neighbors from the Waterbury, Danbury, New Haven, Bristol, and Wallingford areas. Take a look at the information below as you decide which SUV is the right one for you.

Nissan Rogue vs. Ford Escape

  • When it comes to performance, base models of the two SUVs deliver nearly the same metrics. The standard 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine in the Nissan Rogue generates 170 horsepower and 175 pound-feet of torque, giving it the edge over the Escape's standard 2.5-liter four-cylinder and its 168 horsepower and 170 pound-feet of torque. However, when we take a look at each engine's fuel efficiency there's a clear winner -- the Rogue. It earns an EPA-estimated 26 mpg city/33 mpg highway/29 mpg combined, while the Escape is estimated to get 21 mpg city/29 mpg highway/24 mpg combined.
  • Rogue drivers and passengers enjoy more interior space than the Escape offers, with the Rogue boasting 105.8 cubic feet of passenger space and the Escape limited to 98.7 cubic feet. Riders in both the front-row and second-row enjoy more shoulder room in the Rogue, while Rogue also offers more storage space when the rear seats folded down.
  • Entry-level models of each SUV are similarly priced and well-equipped, but the Rogue does include some standard features not found on the base Escape model. These include satellite radio, two LCD monitors, auxiliary audio input, blind spot monitoring, and intelligent brake assist.

When you consider the extra standard features and better fuel efficiency, the Rogue is clearly the better value of the two right from the start. We invite you to visit our Middlebury, CT showroom and meet with one of our team members to explore the SUV in person. We're happy to answer any questions, explain the differences between trim levels, and arrange for you to take an informative test drive.
