2016 Mitsubishi Outlander vs 2016 Ford Escape
What makes an SUV a great buy? Well, that depends. If you're looking to maximize the amount of space and convenience you'll get for your dollar, the Mitsubishi Outlander has a clear advantage against almost all of its competitors. It's got ample room for 7 passengers, or an equivalent amount of stuff, whereas most comparable SUVs only seat 5. But there's more to consider than just space. In comparing the 2016 Mitsubishi Outlander vs the 2016 Ford Escape, we have to look at everything else that makes an SUV desirable.
Let's start with the basics. The 2016 Mitsubishi Outlander offers two different engine options, whereas the 2016 Ford Escape has three. Power-wise, the base engines are just about equal on both vehicles: the Outlander's engine gets 166 horsepower, whereas the base Ford Escape gets 168. At the top end of the range, the Mitsubishi Outlander gets a 224-horsepower V-6 engine, while the Ford escape can get either a 173-hp or a 240-hp turbocharged version. Both SUVs get excellent gas mileage for their size -- that's a selling point for both the Escape and the Outlander. So, they've both got the basics down.
2016 Mitsubishi Outlander Offers Great Value
Both SUVs offer lots of desirable features: everything you'd want in an SUV, including satellite radio, a panoramic sunroof, push-button start, a navigation system, premium audio systems, and an assortment of active safety features. What sets them apart? Well, the prices, mainly. The 2016 Mitsubishi Outlander is offered in base, SE, SEL, and GT trims, while the Ford Escape comes in base, SE, or Titanium edition. The Ford Escape SE starts out at $27,540 for an all-wheel drive model -- with a similar set of features, an Outlander SE can be had for quite a bit less, while an Outlander SEL with premium options is comparable. Don't forget about Mitsubishi's exceptional warranty, either!
