Are you toying with the idea of buying the 2021 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport or the 2021 Ford Escape for your next car? Take a step back before you jump, and see which one supplies the features that San Jose, San Francisco, and Oakland, California, drivers rely on. In this comparison by San Jose Mitsubishi, you’ll see the surprising features that these vehicles offer.
On the other hand, less variety can be found in the Ford. Four trims make up this team: S, SE, SEL, and Titanium.
The Ford takes up much more real estate. It extends to 180.5 inches in length and measures 78.7 inches in width. The Escape is a little taller, too, at 66.1 inches. While this may not seem like a big difference, it may be more difficult to slide into a parking space on the street or parking lot due to its larger size.
A lot of similarities figure into the interior features you’ll find in either SUV. One difference sneaks up on you in the entry-level trims. While the Mitsubishi provides standard automatic climate control, you won’t get that in the Ford. It offers single zone manual climate control.
With these systems, your smartphone can be integrated for viewing and choosing what apps to use. You’ll have available Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ in both the Mitsubishi and the Ford.
If you want to hook up any extra devices, the Mitsubishi provides available dual USB ports in the front row. The Ford also has two USB ports in the front.
Most cars stack up the safety systems, but what about the safety gadgets? In the Mitsubishi, you’ll see standard front rain-sensing wipers, heated power side mirrors, and available LED fog lights. You’ll even get the convenient auto-dimming rearview mirror as a standard feature.
Unfortunately, no comparable item comes standard in the Ford. The rain-sensing windshield wipers, LED fog lamps, and auto-dimming rearview mirror only come in one trim.
With the Ford, you get standard front-wheel drive and can opt for Intelligent AWD. You will have standard 8-speed automatic transmission to help power your ride.
