Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Ford Escape than in the Mitsubishi Outlander. The Ford Escape offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Mitsubishi Outlander, making it a little more comfortable for the driver and front passenger.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Ford Escape as you will with the Mitsubishi Outlander, as they are both able to travel similar distances on a tank of gas.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). The Ford Escape is somewhat more expensive than the Mitsubishi Outlander. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Ford Escape will cost more in terms of transportation costs than the Mitsubishi Outlander.

Dimensions
Since the Ford Escape is much wider than the Mitsubishi Outlander, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. When looking at overall length, the Ford Escape takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Mitsubishi Outlander.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque engine, the Ford Escape doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Mitsubishi Outlander.

Performance
If you've got something you need to pull, the Ford Escape will do just as well as the Mitsubishi Outlander, since they have about the same towing capacity. In terms of horsepower, it's a virtual tie between the Ford Escape and the Mitsubishi Outlander.

Utility
The Ford Escape has less seating than the Mitsubishi Outlander, making the Mitsubishi Outlander the better choice, if you need to chauffeur many passengers. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries in the Ford Escape as you will in the Mitsubishi Outlander.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Ford Escape is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Mitsubishi Outlander.
