2016 Nissan Rogue vs. 2016 Ford Escape
When it comes to crossovers, models like the 2016 Nissan Rogue® and the 2016 Ford Escape are great vehicles for drivers in Philadelphia, Lansdale and Doylestown. They feature a dependable performance that everyone will love. But when it’s time to buy a new crossover, you’ll need to consider more than each vehicle’s safety rating to ensure you drive home in the best vehicle for your lifestyle.
So to help you get a better understanding of everything these two crossovers have to offer, Montgomeryville Nissan has created the 2016 Nissan Rogue® vs 2016 Ford Escape vehicle comparison below.
2016 Nissan Rogue vs 2016 Ford Escape Capabilities
Under the hood of the 2016 Nissan Rogue® you’ll find a 2.5L 4-cylinder engine. This provides 170 horsepower and works with a standard Xtronic® Continuously Variable Transmission to achieve up to an EPA-estimated 33 highway mpg. This powertrain also works hand-in-hand with the crossover’s available Intuitive All-Wheel Drive System which can automatically provide traction and stability when you drive through adverse road conditions.
The 2016 Ford Escape features an available 4-wheel drive system. Like the drivetrain in the Rogue®, the one in the Escape delivers all-weather performance and capabilities for your peace of mind. But in terms of engine performance, the standard option in the Ford Escape only provides 168 horsepower. It also does not come with a fuel economic Continuously Variable Transmission, so it only gets an EPA-estimated 31 highway mpg.
Spacious Interior Volume
The Nissan Rogue® comes with a comfortable interior that measures out to 105.8 cubic feet. For drivers looking to experience even more interior volume, you can opt to add the Family Package. This provides a passenger space of 126.5 cubic feet – that’s about 20 cubic feet of additional space. This crossover also comes with 70 cubic feet of maximum cargo room.
Unlike the 2016 Nissan Rogue®, the Ford Escape offers a cramped interior for you and the entire family. Overall, it features a mere 98.1 cubic feet of passenger volume and does not offer an available option to extend interior space. The Escape does, however, come with 67.8 cubic feet of cargo volume.
Comparing Features & Technologies
To help you better enjoy the spacious interior of the 2016 Nissan Rogue® is the available EZ Flex™ Seating System. When equipped, you’ll be able to adjust the second row of seats to allow for additional legroom or cargo space – whichever is most convenient for you. The 2016 Ford Escape does not come with a similar seating system.
When it comes to interior technologies, the Nissan Rogue® offers more innovations with its advanced NissanConnect infotainment system. This provides access to a navigation system, mobile apps and calling capabilities to ensure entertainment and convenience for the road ahead. The Rogue® also comes with remote services and Automatic Collision Notification with the new NissanConnect Services powered by SiriusXM®.
The 2016 Ford Escape has an infotainment system as well. While it provides similar entertainment features, it does not feature a safety and security system that allows access to remote services.
