PERFORMANCE
Jeep Cherokee

A good engine is the core of any car. The available 2.0L engine makes the Jeep Cherokee a guaranteed powerhouse right off the bat.

Comparing Performance Specs

Effortless acceleration is the name of the game with the Cherokee's 270 horsepower, and heavy lifting comes easily as well with 295 lb-ft of torque. In contrast, the most powerful engine for the Ford Escape generates only 250 horsepower and 280 lb-ft of torque.

For peak control over your SUV’s performance, you’ll want its engine paired with a versatile transmission. The standard 9-speed transmission on the Cherokee is well prepared for terrain changes—bring on the hills! An 8-speed transmission is standard on the Escape.

When you have gear to haul or a summer of camping trips in mind, towing capability is key. The Ford Escape can tow up to 3,500 pounds when properly equipped. The Jeep Cherokee is prepared to carry a utility trailer with its 4,500 pounds of towing capacity when properly equipped.

CAPABILITY
Jeep Cherokee

These small SUVs can take on big adventures. Both the 2022 Jeep Cherokee and the 2022 Ford Escape provide driving modes that tailor traction and steering to suit specific terrain.

Leaving the Beaten Path: All-Terrain Features

Use the standard Selec-Terrain® Traction Management System in the Jeep to choose from:

  • Auto
  • Snow
  • Sport
  • Sand/Mud
  • Rock

Drivers who prefer the added control of 4-wheel drive will find it available with the Escape and the Cherokee. However, the Jeep Cherokee has more options, with three distinct 4X4 systems to choose from. When you drive with available Jeep Active Drive II, the road is only the beginning. The Cherokee Trailhawk offers the Trail Rated® badge, certifying its ability, and adds Rock mode to the terrain options.

The Cherokee Trailhawk can forge streams up to 20 inches deep. The Escape was not designed with water-fording capabilities in mind, and you won’t want water to reach any higher than the door’s sills. If creek crossing will be a major factor in future adventures, only the Cherokee will perform at the level you need.
