Jeep vs Ford: Meet Your Off-Road Warrior

While these are two reliable, sporty SUVs, the Compass goes a few steps further than the Escape when it comes to off-road readiness. Jeep’s addition of two 4-wheel drive systems and an exclusive Rock drive mode helps you summit more unpredictable and thrilling terrain. Additionally, standard Hill Start Assist means you can take on hilly roadways with confidence and ease.
