Mitsubishi Outlander Vs. Ford Escape
2019 Mitsubishi Outlander vs. 2019 Ford Escape
When you’re in the market for a new sport utility vehicle for your family, there are several important factors to take into account: passenger and cargo space, fuel economy, comfort, luxury, and more. There are a lot of different options available in this class, and it can prove difficult to figure out which SUV is perfect for you. A little research can go a long way toward making the right choice, which is why we’re comparing the Mitsubishi Outlander and Ford Escape to help you make your decision. While these SUVs have many similarities, there are a few factors that can pull one ahead of the other. Let’s see how they stack up in a side-by-side comparison, at West Side Mitsubishi: your top Edmonton Mitsubishi dealer!
When you buy an SUV, there’s a good chance it’s going to be used as a family vehicle. Grabbing groceries, running the children to and from after-school activities, taking weekend trips and more, the modern SUV needs to capably handle these duties and do so in the most efficient manner possible. While similar with highway efficiency at 8.1L/100 km on the Outlander and 8L/100 km for the Escape, it’s in the city where the Outlander truly shines. Getting 9.9L/100 km in the city compared to the Escape’s 11.0L/100 km, this is an SUV primed for city errands and maneuvering, so you won’t have to visit the pumps as much. When you’re running all over town and putting miles on your SUV, those few kilometres here and there will quickly add up over time.
There’s no point in an SUV not having ample passenger space and seats comfortable enough to enjoy a long ride. That’s where the Mitsubishi Outlander really shines over the Ford Escape. Its foldable third-row seating allows comfortable transport of seven people, whereas the Ford can only manage five, without a third-row seat. Even if you mostly keep the Outlander’s third-row seats stowed to create additional cargo space, it’s nice to have the option of additional seating should you have to adapt on the fly. The Escape, while comfortable enough, simply doesn’t have these versatility options without the extra seats.
When shopping for the perfect SUV, you want the most options available, so you can get a vehicle that works for what you want, not the other way around. The Outlander boasts a wide-selection of seven trims to choose from, ranging across MSRP prices of $29,198 to 38,398. The Escape only has four trims to choose from, ranging across MSRP prices of $26,399 to $37,699. Across its options, the Outlander gives you more to choose from, and depending on the trim, gives you better value over the Escape.
If you need an SUV that has spacious cargo space, comfortable seating availability, great fuel economy and optionality across a multitude of trims, then the Mitsubishi Outlander checks all the boxes. And why wouldn’t you, those are the prime features of what one looks for in a capable city-minded SUV.
