Rogue vs Escape: Performance Specifications

Both the 2020 Rogue and Escape come standardly equipped with a 4-cylinder engine and front-wheel drivetrain. However, their mechanical configurations begin to differ when it comes to the transmission.

The Rogue comes with an Xtronic CVT® (Continuously Variable Transmission), which optimizes efficiency. Enjoy an impressive EPA-estimated 26 city/33 highway MPG, thanks to this feature.*

The Escape, on the other hand, offers only an 8-speed automatic transmission, resulting in EPA-estimated of 26 city/31 highway MPG.

Rogue vs Escape: Interior Cargo Capabilities

As an SUV, the 2020 Nissan Rogue provides drivers with expansive cargo capabilities. This vehicle offers five spacious seats and 39.3 cubic feet of cargo space to take advantage of, even when all five of these seats are in use.

You can nearly double your packing capabilities in this vehicle. The standard EZ FLEX™ Seating System with 2nd-row split folding/sliding/reclining seat with pass through allows you to customize all 70 cubic feet of cargo to fit your needs.

As for the 2020 Ford Escape, you'll only have 65.4 cubic feet of total cargo space and a manual 60/40 split rear seat to fit all of your things in.

Rogue vs Escape: Impressive Safety Features

The 2020 Nissan Rogue is not only efficient and able to be packed to the max, it takes safety to the next level. This vehicle offers standard Blind Spot Warning, Automatic Emergency Braking, and Rear Cross Traffic Alert.

These advanced active safety features use sensors placed on the outside of the vehicle to monitor your vehicle's surroundings like a second set of eyes. If there's something in your blind spot or behind you, you'll be the first to know. Automatic Emergency Braking will even take the reins when you don't have time to react.

Fortunately, the Ford Escape offers a similar feature in its BLIS® (Blind Spot Information System)-which is equipped with Cross-Traffic Alert. However, since these features are combined into one system, they might be less responsive in certain driving situations.
