Engine Specs & 4×4 Capabilities

When it comes to performance, the Jeep Wrangler far outclasses the Ford Escape. The Jeep Wrangler boasts a 3.6L Pentastar® V6 engine that generates 285 horsepower and 265 lb-ft of torque — as compared to the 2.5L 4-cylinder engine of the Escape that gets 168 horsepower and 170 lb-ft of torque.

The Jeep Wrangler pairs its engine with a capable 4X2 or 4X4 drivetrain, and it features a max towing capacity of 3,500 lbs. The Ford Escape comes in either FWD or AWD, and it has far less towing power at 2,000 lbs. max towing capacity.

In addition to being better for towing, the Jeep Wrangler also comes with better capabilities for handling off-road trails or less-than-ideal mountain roads with these features:

  • Selec-Trac®
  • Command-Trac®
  • Rock-Trac®
  • Hill Descent Control
  • 4:1 transfer case
  • Sway bar disconnect
  • Rock rails and steel bumpers

The Ford Escape, on the other and, is not recommended for any sort of off-roading.
