2018 Nissan Rogue vs 2018 Ford Escape

For many, the car buying process can be a challenging and, at times, a daunting task. There are so many new cars every year from dozens of available brands that trying to whittle it down to just one vehicle can seem almost impossible! This is none truer than with the SUV class, as every brand seems to have their own lineup of multiple models to offer consumers, each with varying strengths and weaknesses.

That's why we create these model comparison pages, to better inform you, the consumer, and help you make a choice about which vehicle is best for you. For this exercise, we're going to be looking at two of the most popular midsize SUVs available today, the 2018 Nissan Rogue and 2018 Ford Escape. We'll look at each SUV's efficiency, power, and interior space for passengers and cargo to better understand the value that each brings to drivers. Note that we're comparing both model's base trim.
