2021 Ford Escape vs 2021 Nissan Rogue

If you are looking for a new spacious and luxurious SUV, you may notice that there are several options to choose from. While the market does seem to be oversaturated with SUVs at the moment, there are two vehicles that stand out among the competition: the Nissan Rogue and the Ford Escape. While these two vehicles may look remarkably similar at first glance, once you get a closer look, you can clearly see that they offer a wide range of different features. Here is a look at the 2021 Ford Escape vs the 2021 Nissan Rogue.


Exterior Design


The Escape has a sleek and stylish exterior design. The body is outlined by long, sloping curves that help to make the Escape look more aerodynamic. The sculpted hood elegantly flows down towards the wide and slender grille that sits just below two newly redesigned LED headlights.


The Rogue has also been recently redesigned and now features a boxier look. The LED headlights are slender, but the front grille is large and makes the exterior look more aggressive than sporty.


Interior Design



Both the Escape and the Rogue offer roughly the same amount of interior space. Both vehicles offer two rows of spacious seating that can fit up to five occupants comfortably while providing plenty of legroom for both the front and the back seat passengers. This year, the Rogue comes standard with a 60/40 split rear seat that can be folded down flat, or scooted forward, to make more room in the back. With the rear seats up, the Escape provides 962 litres (34 cubic feet) of cargo space.


There are also several luxurious features that are offered on the Escape including stunning interior ambient lighting. The Escape also offers an available Panoramic Vista Roof that stretches over the front and back rows to fill the entire cabin with natural light.


High-Tech Entertainment


Both vehicles offer an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment display that comes equipped with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The Escape also adds an available 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster and a B&) 10-speaker premium audio system.

The Ford Escape offers more standard safety features than the Rogue offers. Some of the standard features that you can find on the Escape include:


  • Day/Night Rearview Mirror
  • Blind Spot Information System
  • Cross-Traffic Alert
  • Automatic Headlights
  • Pre-Collision Assist with Automatic Emergency Braking
  • Lane-Keep Assist
  • Safety Canopy System
  • Driver Knee Airbag
  • Dual-Stage Driver and Front Passenger Airbag
  • SOS Post-Crash Alert System

The Escape comes standard with a 1.5-litre 3-cylinder engine that also delivers 181 horsepower. There is also an available 2.0-litre 4-cylinder engine that delivers an impressive 250 horsepower.
