Both the Chevy Equinox and the Ford Escape are available with two turbocharged engine options: a 1.5-liter and a 2.0-liter. If you’re looking for a zippy, powerful ride, the Equinox’s 2.0-liter offers more horsepower at 252 to the Escape’s 245, translating to quicker acceleration on the roadways. Both SUVs can tow up to 3,500 pounds when properly equipped, but the extra horsepower and quicker acceleration will help you out more when towing with the Equinox.

Interior Review

Whether you’re commuting in daily traffic or gearing up for a long-haul road trip, you’ll want to be comfortable for the duration of the ride. Taller drivers will feel more at ease in the Equinox, which offers more headroom than the Escape. Both the Equinox and the Escape offer Apple CarPlay and Android Auto starting in their second trim level, but the Equinox pulls ahead by offering a Wi-Fi hotspot as a standard feature. Overall, the Equinox is an incredible value, offering cutting-edge features at a more affordable price point than the Escape.

Safety Features

While both automakers take safety seriously with their intelligent safety suites, Chevy offers six features over Ford’s five. The Equinox’s safety features include automatic emergency braking, lane keep assist, lane departure warning, forward collision alert, front pedestrian braking, and a following distance indicator. Ford’s suite includes automatic emergency braking, blind spot monitoring, adaptive cruise control, evasive steering assist, and a lane keeping system. Both vehicles offer two sets of LATCH car seat tethers to keep little ones secure while you drive. When it comes to safety on the road, you can rest assured that the Chevy Equinox has you covered.
