We know the MKC is based on the Escape and we know changes were made allowing MKC to have its own distinct flavor, but what exactly is the difference?

  • Wheelbase is the same at 105.9 inches.
  • MKC is longer overall at 179.2 inches vs Escapes 178.1 inches.
  • Width without mirrors grew to 73.4 in (MKC) from 72.4 in (Escape); Width with mirrors is 84.1 in (MKC) vs 81.8 in (Escape)
  • MKC rides an inch lower 65.2 in vs 66.3 in for the Escape.
  • Track width was also widened for MKC 62.4 in front/ 62.5 in rear vs the Escapes 61.5in front and 61.6 in rear

Clearly the MKC is a slightly larger car on the exterior, but has that translated to the interior as well?

Big difference in cargo sadly. Wonder if the wrap around tailgate is the reason?

This is indeed hard to believe and if so very disappointing. With a slightly longer wheelbase, and the same rear leg room,the MKC has approx 15 cu. ft less space in the rear than the Escape. Think about it -- 15 cu. ft. would require a space in the rear just short of 1 ft. less that the Escape.
