Jeep and Ford are routinely at the top of the pack when it comes to compact SUVs, and their respective Compass and Escape models have become undisputed market leaders in terms of efficiency and innovation, not to mention bold and athletic styling. There certainly is nothing like an American-built SUV to get the adrenaline-laced vibes that you need, but out of these two competitors, which one is best suited for your desires?

Not only is the 2019 Jeep Compass stronger and more efficient at its base level than the 2019 Escape, but it also does a much better job at bringing connectivity and convenience to your drive. This is due to its Uconnect® 4C NAV infotainment system, which can provide up-to-date turn-by-turn directions in an instant, as well as a Voice Command suite that allows you to control calls, directions and media streaming just by speaking. Speaking of songs, they’ll be played through a premium 12-speaker BeatsAudio™ sound system, entertainment unrivaled by the Escape. 

The Compass’s advantages aren’t just in the superficial way, either - it offers over 70 standard and available driver assistance features to help keep you safe, a number that the Escape can’t reach. Some of the Compass’s best innovations include Blind Spot Monitoring, Rear Cross Path Detection, Lane Departure Warning, Adaptive Cruise Control, and many more – across the board, you can’t go wrong with a Jeep in your life. 

If you’re looking to see what else the 2019 Jeep Compass can do, contact Boucher CDJR at your earliest convenience to schedule a test drive. We’re happy to get you behind the wheel!
