2015 Nissan Rogue vs. 2015 Ford Escape

With the release of the 2015 Nissan Rogue and the 2015 Ford Escape, drivers in the Regina and Swift Current, SK areas are wondering which crossover SUV is right for them. To answer that question, we are going to take a close look at the powertrain options, built-in technologies and comforts, and overall capabilities of each of these new crossovers in order to determine which one is worth the investment.

Which Crossover Packs More Punch?

While the new 2015 Ford Escape is no slouch in the power department, the 2015 Nissan Rogue definitely speeds ahead with a 2.5L DOHC 16-valve 4-cylinder engine that is capable of attaining 170 horsepower at 6,000 rpm as well as 175 lb-ft of torque at 4,400 rpm, all while achieving an impressive fuel economy of 7.2 L/100Km on the highway and 9.2 L/100Km in the city. Although the Escape gives you a couple of unique options, including the EcoBoost powertrain, the 2015 Rogue is still the best balance between power and fuel economy on the road today.

Which Crossover Has More Technological Prowess?

Both of these new SUVs bring great technologies to the table. Regina and Swift Current shoppers will be pleased to know the 2015 Rogue brings a lot more. While Ford continues its tradition of bundling its Microsoft SYNC system into its fleet, Nissan has innovated with new technologies like the available Around View Monitor which gives you a complete 360-degree perspective of the situation around your Rogue, Bluetooth integration, a 127 mm (5.0″) Colour Display Audio system, and more.

Which Crossover Is More Fun to Drive?

Another important aspect to consider when choosing a crossover SUV is the ride and handling – these two facets can really make or break a potential vehicle. Both the new Rogue and Escape have excellent handling dynamics, but the 2015 Rogue definitely beats its competition. Customers from Regina and Swift Current will enjoy maneuvering the Rogue which features a responsive driving system which allows the crossover to adapt to just about any kind of terrain or weather conditions. On top of all that, you also get comfy, heated seats that were inspired by NASA technology.

The 2015 Nissan Rogue Checks All the Right Boxes

At the end of the day, the 2015 Nissan Rogue clearly wins out over the 2015 Ford Escape. That’s not to say that the Escape is a subpar vehicle by any means, but only that the Rogue is a better investment and sports more features at this price point. We highly recommend you give it a test-drive to see if it’s the right crossover for you.
