When you're looking for a new vehicle, the performance options are definitely important, and while there are more engine options available on the 2018 Ford Escape, you can't go wrong with having one powerful engine.

On the 2018 Nissan Rogue, the standard engine across all three trim levels is a 2.5L four-cylinder that provides drivers with 170 horsepower and 175 pound-feet of torque.
