Wink What ford says you should get a Escape over a Cherokee

What ford says you should get a Escape over a Cherokee this made me giggle as none of it was about capabilities just auto hatch and that the backup camera was standard and storage space.

Yeah, and the Cherokee will be pulling said Escape out of a ditch during a snow storm...The owner of the Escape can watch the Cherokee pull them out with their standard backup camera.

Looked at one before going with the KL. There was much more to my decisions than what I could put in the cargo space....like 4x4 capability for one.

I would have not bought a Cherokee if not for the Trailhawk version. There is better choices out there if needed strictly for the utility of a small SUV.

Actually a weak comparison for the Escape in the real world to the Cherokee.
I did look at the Escape when shopping, just to see what the competition was offering.
No comparison in my key area of Towing and 4WD capability.
I like the "auto" feature but also the option of going 4WD by my choice.
Just a better all around vehicle in my opinion.

Same same. Non-TH gives me the chills (not in a good way).

I think that is a common thought.
If you take 4x4 capability out of the equation. Leave it as just AWD (Cherokee equivalent of AD1) then the Cherokee has very stiff competition.

If you need to go further offroad, then there's nothing else close to the Jeep.

Hmmm... I have the Latitude, non-TH version, and I think it was a much better choice than the competition. Better engine, better interior, much better exterior, nice standard features. You guys don't talk smack about my ride!
