2018 Nissan Rogue vs 2018 Ford Escape in Chicago, IL

2018 Nissan Rogue vs 2018 Ford Escape in Chicago, IL

2018 Nissan Rogue with optional equipment shown.

Here at Western Avenue Nissan, we want to prove to you that the 2018 Nissan Rogue is one of the better compact SUVs on the road today. In order to do so, we have pitted it against the 2018 Ford Escape. With a better powertrain rumbling underneath its hood, a myriad of driver-assist features, and a cozier cabin, it won’t be difficult for you to choose the Rogue over the Escape. If you have any questions or would like more information, don’t hesitate to dial us up at 877-283-0833.

The best place to start our comparison of these two compact SUVs is underneath the hood. Dazzling you with 170 horsepower and 175 lb.-ft. of torque is the Rogue’s standard 2.5L DOHC 16-Valve 4-cylinder engine. Not only is it powerful, but this machine will also help you save time and money at the pump, since it offers a responsible fuel economy of 26/33/29 MPG city/hwy/combined1. The Escape, however, only manages to produce 168 horsepower and 170 lb.-ft. of torque from its standard 2.5L 4-cylinder powertrain. What’s more, you’ll have to fill up your tank more often, as you will only receive a 21/29/24 MPG city/hwy/combined2 fuel rating. Clearly, the SUV from Nissan gives you the best of both worlds compared to the one from Ford.

As awesome as its performance is, the real selling point of the 2018 Rogue is its plethora of safety features that keep everyone aboard protected. While both SUVs come with Blind Spot Warning3, the Rogue includes this feature as standard on its base model, whereas you’ll have to upgrade to a higher trim in the Escape to receive the same. Blind Spot Warning3 notifies you when another vehicle is approaching from either side while you’re driving along Lake Shore Drive. Another nifty piece of technology that is only available at higher trim levels in the SUV from Ford is Brake Support4. A similar feature called Automatic Emergency Braking5 can be found standard on the SUV from Nissan. Both functions will automatically apply the brakes if it detects an imminent frontal collision. You will just have to shell out some more cash to equip it to the Ford Escape.

While there is so much more to explore in both of these compact SUVs, it is clear that the winner of the 2018 Nissan Rogue vs 2018 Ford Escape in Chicago, IL, comparison, is the SUV from Nissan. The Rogue bested the Escape in both the power and efficiency categories, as well as the safety features that come equipped to its base model. We at Western Avenue Nissan encourage you to come take the Rogue out on a test drive with a member of our staff to see what it’s like behind the wheel. We hope to see you soon!

Everything went perfect and Kevin was an awesome sales person. I told him about my credit background since I have a bankruptcy and he assured me not to worry and I would be walking out with a car. I loved that I was in and out in under three hours. Plus, I was approved for a brand new car with no miles. I recommend Nissan to anyone looking to purchase a reliable vehicle with limited options. I would definitely go back.

I was impressed with the quick service I received and the staff was very professional and friendly. I would say they need to address the waiting room area. It needs a bit of sprucing up. Because of the neighborhood it's in, I found it to be s bit offensive compared to other Nissan dealers. Just keeping it real.

I’ve always had trouble looking for the right car for me. I went to this dealership and asked Nathan Anderson for some help. Now, you want a guy who can tell you about cars, and actually knows what he’s talking about, this is the place to go. Nathan is super nice and charismatic with his customers. He is easy to talk to and knows how to make you feel comfortable being there. He didn’t try to sell me a car out of my price range either. He kept it real with me and that’s what I appreciate. 5/5 stars recommend going here and talking to Nathan for help.

Appreciated

I usually don’t write reviews as most companies don’t even go beyond or above anymore when it comes to customer service. I recently had a positive experience with Western Avenue Nissan, specifically with a Manager at that location Brenda Watts. I was inquiring about a vehicle I saw online and Brenda was first articulate, patient and knowledgeable about the vehicle at hand. That type of customer service goes far especially with customers who are contemplating buying from your dealership. I want to make sure Brendais recognizes for going over and beyond for this customer as it was appreciated and made me confident in top notch customer service again where the customer is top of mind not just the deal. Owners hopefully you’re taking care of your employees especially this one when you have a gem such as her you want to make sure that they continue to shine.

Very Pleased!

he establishment was official. The woman that works there, Maria, assisted me with my car search. She answered my questions honestly and effectively and was very pleased with Maria's customer service skills. She was also very easy on the eyes. I didn't end up purchasing a car as I was unprepared, but I will definitely return here when I'm ready.

My husband and I were struggling to be qualified for a car. I was told by a family member that Nissan gave them an opportunity so we took the chance. I met Maria and she hooked us up. She worked hard to meet our criteria, answering all our concerns and making us feel comfortable. Her dedication was superb. I am grateful every time I don't have to walk in the cold. Thank you so much!

I loved this dealership! I had been to numerous dealers in the city and in the suburbs of Chicago when looking to buy a car. I came to this one, and they were all so attentive. A man named Julian Outly helped me from start to finish. I told him what I was looking for in a car, but I also explained to him that my budget was limited because I’m a college student with an hourly job. Julian helped me find a car that helped with the weather conditions of where I attend school. He also found the car that was in my price range. I still wanted my father’s approval before I bought the car, but when my dad came a week later, Julian was ready for him. He convinced him why the car was a great purchase for me, and why the purchase would be lasting. So now, I’m the proud owner of a Nissan Rogue :-). The car is impeccable, and I drive all over the country in it. Julian was polite, professional, courteous of our time, and genuinely wanted to help me find a car that worked for my lifestyle without making me go bankrupt. If I get another car (years from now), I’ll definitely be back here as my first choice!
