Ford Escape vs Chevrolet Equinox:

  • Any driver's first impression lies with the starting price, and while the Ford Escape just barely edges out the Chevrolet Equinox in MSRP across every trim level, it also adds more features than the Equinox does. The Escape SE trim comes in a paltry $410 cheaper than the Equinox's equivalent LS trim, but the former adds keyless entry, powered driver's seat, an upgraded engine and satellite radio; the Equinox only adds satellite radio.
  • In spite of the Chevrolet Equinox's available V6 engine offering more horsepower than the Escape's 240-horsepower, 2.0-liter EcoBoost 4-cylinder powertrain, Ford is still able to offer a satisfying drive that expert reviewers believe performs better than the Equinox.
  • A big way that our customers build trust and confidence in their vehicle is through its safety capabilities, which the Escape has no problem catering to. With a 5-star overall rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), and good to great scores from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), the Escape is capable of being a top-choice IIHS Top Safety Pick. On the other hand, the Equinox offers a less consistent safety performance, thanks to a mix of 4- and 5-star scores from the NHTSA
  • While taller passengers will appreciate the extra head and shoulder room of the Equinox, drivers and passengers alike will love the comfortable edge that the Escape has on its rival. With plenty of space to relax or use for any needs you may have, including an extra 5.3 cubic feet of cargo volume, the Escape is better prepared for any and all utilities you may need covered by your SUV.
