Nissan Rogue vs. Ford Escape

All across the U.S. tough calls are being made on Little League baseball diamonds each and every day. Batting orders, pitching rotations, and all manner of foul ball disputes require an objective method of decision making. Those who spent time learning the game in sandlot dugouts know exactly what this method entails. Just as every future Big Leaguer has done for the better part of a century, alternating hands race to the top of a spare bat until one team clearly takes “the upper hand.”

One issue with "upper hand" is the method’s reliance on sequence. Similar to other childhood games, the outcome can be manipulated by changing the player who initiates the contest. This is most fortunately not the case with vehicle disputes, however. Facts reign supreme, and drivers in search of real answers can draw objective conclusions based on the available data. In this spirit of research, Continental Nissan has sketched out a comparison of the 2014 Nissan Rogue vs. 2014 Ford Escape to see which SUV truly takes the upper hand.
