When trying to find the difference between two SUVs, the best place to start is under the hood. The standard 2.5L DOHC 16-valve 4-cylinder engine produces 170 horsepower and 175 lb.-ft. of torque. This powertrain also achieves a stunning fuel rating of 26/33/29 city/hwy/combined1, keeping you on the road longer and saving you some money at the pump. The Rogue also comes with standard Eco/Sport Mode, giving you the ability to adjust your ride to the driving conditions. Improve fuel economy with just the push of a button. The Escape on the other hand comes equipped with a standard inline-4 FWD motor that generates 168 horsepower and 170 lb.-ft. of torque, and has a fuel rating 21/29/24 MPG city/hwy/combined1. The Rogue is superior to the Escape when it comes to performance.

You want an SUV that boasts a cozy and classy interior, and in the 2018 Rogue, you will get that and some. The cabin of the 2018 Nissan Rogue comes with standard cloth seat trim, but if you want more luxurious feel, then you can opt for the available leather-appointed seats. And if leather is your style, then you can also include the available leather-wrapped steering wheel with heating functions, and an available leather-wrapped shift knob. Better yet, you can opt for available heated seats, a feature that the base trim of the Escape does not offer.

The Rogue will keep you and your family protected thanks to its myriad of safety features, which includes the available Blind Spot Warning2. This system will be your second eyes on the road, and will help you change lanes with confidence by notifying you with an audible and visual alert if a vehicle enters either of your blind spots. What makes the Rogue stand out from the Escape is its Advanced Airbag System, which includes dual-stage supplemental front airbags3 with seat belt sensors and an occupant-classification sensor, keeping you and your loved ones protected on your drive through Magnificent Mile. The inflation rate of these dual-stage airbags3 adjusts depending on crash severity and seat belt usage.

The winner between the 2018 Nissan Rogue vs 2018 Ford Escape near Chicago, IL, is clear cut, the Rogue takes the cake. Visit us at Thomas Nissan of Joliet today to see the Rogue up close and personal. We look forward to meeting you!

1. Actual mileage may vary with driving conditions — use for comparison only.

2. Blind Spot Warning and Intelligent Blind Spot Intervention are not substitutes for proper lane change procedures. The system will not prevent contact with other vehicles or accidents. It may not detect every vehicle or object around you.

3. Air bags are only a supplemental restraint system; always wear your seat belt. Even with the occupant-classification sensor, rear-facing child restraints should not be placed in the front-passenger’s seat. All children 12 and under should ride in the rear seat properly secured in child restraints, booster seats, or seat belts according to their size. Air bags will only inflate in certain accidents; see your Owner’s Manual for more details.
