You need something with space and versatility, but don’t want to forego the efficiency and money saving capability of the sedan. Luckily, there is a segment of vehicles that perfectly fit those specifications, and they are the crossover SUVs that have become immensely popular in the last few years. Jeep has been a classic choice in SUVs for over 50 years with a reputation for a rugged design and the utility to handle adventure. Today, we are comparing the 2015 Jeep Patriot vs 2015 Ford Escape to give you a better idea of why the Jeep Patriot is the best choice in terms of styling, useful technology, and price. Beginning with the exterior features of these two vehicles, the differences in style will be immediately apparent. The 2015 Jeep Patriot features the classic Jeep grille and round head lights.
The body is boxy and aggressive, which goes well with Jeep’s reputation for off-road capability and exciting performance features. The Ford Escape, on the other hand, is smooth and fluid in design. The sleek body features the same 4-door structure as the Jeep but with angular lights and a shrinking rear end for a more aerodynamic appearance. Under the hood, the comparison is slightly less obvious. Despite having a slightly larger engine, the Jeep and the Ford both received similar fuel economy ratings. The difference comes in the standard transmission which is a 6-speed automatic on the Ford Escape and a 5-speed manual on the Jeep Patriot. At the base level, each vehicle offers a basic 4-cylinder engine that gets great gas milage but doesn’t hold the same power as the higher trim levels.
Which Vehicle is the Perfect Fit?
Sitting inside either of these vehicles, the lucky driver will feel the influence of modern automotive technology. Inside the Ford Escape, the spacious interior comes loaded with many bells and whistles. This is to be expected for the much higher price, as the Jeep is much more affordable and functionality based. However, the Jeep does include the use of media devices through an auxiliary and USB port in the center console.
The center command also features options for Bluetooth capability, voice recognition, and hands-free phone calls.
