Many drivers who visit our Jeep dealership in Cincinnati, OH are curious about how the Jeep Renegade compares to it top competitor, the Ford Escape. To help you out, our dealers created this guide so you can choose the model that works best for you. 

Off-Road Capability 

Both the Ford Escape and Jeep Renegade are two smaller SUVs that make big promises in terms of versatility. On the one hand, the Ford Escape offers all-wheel-drive, which will certainly enhance your off-road capability compared to other types of drivetrains. That being said, you'll only get 7.8 inches of ground clearance, which will be difficult to deal with when trekking across rough terrain.

Alternatively, our Jeep model can be tweaked to be a real off-road champion. In particular, the Jeep Renegade Trailhawk expands ground clearance to 8.7 inches and comes equipped with a robust all-wheel-drivetrain. On top of that, some upgraded mechanics allow for a simulated low-range gearbox, as well as the ability to shift torque from front to back on the fly.

Infotainment Features 

While both the Jeep Renegade and Ford Escape can be upgraded to sport a variety of enhanced infotainment features, our Jeep model starts the strongest. Base models of the 2021 Jeep Renegade get a 7.0-inch infotainment touchscreen, which comes loaded with Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ integration. 

Meanwhile, the Ford Escape's infotainment system is rather minimal. Measuring in at just 4.2 inches and with only one USB port, it lacks many of the hi-tech features that drivers have come to enjoy. On top of that, the small LCD screen doesn't provide touch activation, which makes it outdated compared to the Jeep Renegade.
