2017 Mitsubishi Outlander SE
vs. 2017 Ford Escape SE
When looking for a larger vehicle for your passengers or gear in Morgantown, two great options are the 2017 Mitsubishi Outlander SE and the 2017 Ford Escape. We put these SUVs to the test to see which would come out on top. Keep reading to see how they match up.
One of the most important things when purchasing a new vehicle is of course the price. The Outlander SE wins this round with a starting price of $24,495. The Escape SE requires you to spend a bit more cash at $25,250. The Outlander also saves you a bit more on gas. It gets 25/30 city/highway MPG, while the Escape gets 23/30 city/highway MPG.
Here are some of the features you get on the Outlander SE:
- Push button start
- FAST-Key passive entry system
- Heated front seats
- Dual USB ports
- 7” Smartphone Link Display Audio System
The Ford Escape SE has some similar features, but there are a ton of standard and optional features on the Outlander that you can’t even get on the Ford Escape SE. A few of these are:
- Privacy Glass
- Power Tilt/Sliding Sunroof
- Sun/Moon Roof
- Trailer Hitch Receiver
When you consider all these features and what comes standard for the price, the Outlander comes out ahead.
While both of these choices are considered compact SUVs, the Outlander seats seven while the Escape only seats five. Even though the Outlander has that extra row, it has more second-row leg room for your passengers. You’ll also have much more space for you luggage or any other gear you might be hauling with the Outlander’s quick-folding seats.
