2015 Dodge Journey vs. 2015 Ford Escape

As the newest model from Canada’s favorite crossover brand, the 2015 Dodge Journey easily outperforms the 2015 Ford Escape. Medicine Hat and Lethbridge, AB drivers already value the Journey for its space, performance, and technology, and a comparison with competitors only serves to cement their opinion.

Performance

Crossover vehicles don’t require the same level of power as standard SUVs, but their multi-purpose nature means that a solid level of performance is still desirable.

While both the 2015 Dodge Journey and the 2015 Ford Escape offer a range of engines, it’s only the Journey that is able to provide in terms of power. The award-winning 3.6L Pentastar V6 is able to provide 283 hp and 260 lb-ft of torque, making it one of the most forceful crossovers on the market. The new Escape’s available 2.0L EcoBoost can’t compete, offering only 240 hp and 231 lb-ft or torque.

Design

As soon as you lay your eyes on the 2015 Dodge Journey, it’s easy to discern that this is a crossover that means business. Longer, taller, and wider than competitors like the 2015 Ford Escape — but still agile enough to handle well in the city — it combines strong driving dynamics with a commanding presence.

Of course, that space also makes a difference inside. The 2015 Journey boasts more passenger space than the 2015 Escape, as well as far greater maximum cargo room. With all seats folded down, you’ll be able to carry an extremely generous 1,914 L of maximum cargo space.

Features

Both inside and out, the 2015 Dodge Journey provides superior features for Medicine Hat and Lethbridge drivers, with quality built into every level:

  • Drive: The 2015 Journey is fitted with advanced multi-link suspension, providing a smoother ride than the 2015 Escape’s short- and long-arm suspension.
  • Comfort: While the 2015 Escape is only fitted with manual air conditioning, the 2015 Journey boasts dual-zone automatic climate control as standard.
  • Security: The 2015 Journey incorporates a Flip ‘n Stow fold-flat front-passenger seat cushion, letting you keep valuables completely out of sight.
