With so many compact crossovers on the market, it can be difficult to choose the one that’s right for you. Here’s how the Mitsubishi Outlander outmatches one of its top competitors, the 2018 FordEscape.
The Ford Escape gets decent gas mileage at 21 mpg city, 29 mpg highway, and 24 mpg combined.* However, the Mitsubishi Outlander easily beats the Escape in this area, delivering an outstanding 25 mpg city, 30 mpg highway, and 27 mpg combined.* As an added bonus, the Outlander allows you to drive farther on a tank of gas, offering a capacity of 16.6 gallons compared to the Escape’s 15.7 gallons.
If you’re looking for a compact crossover that’s equipped to haul your entire family, the Mitsubishi Outlander is the clearly superior choice. The Outlander offers seating for seven people, while the Ford Escape can only seat five.
An automaker’s willingness to provide an extended warranty is often a good indicator of the vehicle’s quality. For the Outlander, Mitsubishi offers a five-year, 60,000-mile bumper-to-bumper warranty. In comparison, Ford’s bumper-to-bumper warranty for the Escape is only good for three years or 36,000 miles.
With better fuel economy, seating capacity, and warranty coverage, the 2018 MitsubishiOutlander easily beats the Ford Escape. At Bakersfield Mitsubishi, we think the Outlander is an outstanding compact crossover option, and we welcome you to stop by for a test drive.
