Ford Escape vs. Chevy Equinox

  • Both models offer the potential for three different engine options. The base engine option for the Ford Escape delivers 168 horsepower and 170 pound-feet of torque while the Chevy Equinox offers a 170 horsepower, 203 pound-per feet engine with its base package. The Ford does offer the most torque of any engine output, achieving a maximum of 275 pound-feet.
  • Both models offer the ability to seat five passengers but the Ford Escape ensures just a bit more comfort by providing more legroom for its front-row passengers and more headroom for back seat passengers.
  • Need to maximize the amount of cargo space available? The Ford Escape excels when the back seats are locked down (68 to 63.90 cubic feet) or if you have a full load of passengers (34 to 29.90 cubic feet).
  • With exterior features, you'll find plenty to explore for either SUV. Both provide LED headlights to help brighten up darker nights and a power liftgate to make filling up the cargo space a little easier. However, the Ford Escape offers a hands-free power liftgate while the Chevy doesn't provide the same convenient access.
  • From 4G LTE Wi-Fi® to smartphone integration, heated seats and a long list of other amenities, both the Ford Escape and Chevy Equinox are ready to make those commutes feel a little more enjoyable.
  • Staying safe and secure is important in any situation and that includes parking. The Ford Escape offers the Enhanced Active Park Assist system that helps guide you into parking spots whether you're reversing or attempting to parallel park. The Chevy Equinox offers a Rear Parking Assist system but doesn't offer the same inclusive benefits as the Ford SUV.
