    You cannot compare the Escape to the Grand Cherokee. They are different classes of truck. The Ford that is in the GC’s class is the Explorer. Also in this class are the Dodge Durango, Chevy Trailblazer, and a few imports. Did a little snooping on the Kelley Blue Book new car value site for you. No charge.
    Grand Cherokee V6 17 cty/ 22 hwy $28k
    Grand Cherokee V8 15/20 (same with 4.7 OR Hemi, due to Hemi’s MDS)
    Ford Explorer V6 15/21 $29.4
    Dodge Durango V6 16/21 $29.2k
    Chevy Trailblazer V6 16/22 $25k
    Toyota 4Runner V6 18/22 $28.2k
    Nissan Pathfinder V6 16/23 $26k
    Honda Pilot V6 18/24 $27.5k
    Isuzu Ass-ender, ummmm, I mean Ascender 16/22 $26.6k (this is really just a Chevy Trailblazer with an Isuzu grille.
    Mitsubishi Endeavor V6 17/23 $27.2k
    Hyundai Santafe 19/25 $22.3k

    You can’t have towing capacity (high torque and power) and also have great gas mileage.

    Get the Jeep.

    You can get a 2006 Jeep Commander. They get better gas mileage than the cherokee, and they are 4×4 and they are everything you have listed. Plus, I have a 2006 Jeep Commander and they are great SUV’s.
