When it comes to the power of performance, the Chevy Equinox easily outshines the Ford Escape. The base model of the Ford Escape outputs 168 horsepower while the Chevy Equinox delivers a more powerful 182 horsepower. Plus, the Equinox’s available V6 engine delivers 301 horsepower, way more than the Escape’s top horsepower of 245.  


These two cars truly come head-to-head in terms of pricing, with only about a $400 difference between their starting MSRPs* to start, as well as in upper trim levels. Both are surprisingly affordable SUVs, especially for all the Equinox gives in terms of features and technology. 


If you’re a fan of connectivity, you’ll love the Chevy Equinox. The Equinox comes with OnStar and a standard Wi-Fi hotspot so that you’re always connected on-the-go. While the Ford Escape also has good tech features, it lacks the Wi-Fi the Equinox can give you. 

Fuel Economy

The Chevy Equinox and the Ford Escape boast similar fuel ratings, but the Equinox pulls ahead in efficiency with a rating of 31 mpg highway** versus the Ford Escape’s 29 mpg highway.** If you’re a stickler for efficiency, that extra bit counts!    


The Chevy Equinox is a horse of many colors. While the Ford Escape has a slightly larger cargo space, it lacks the versatility that the Equinox boasts. The Equinox’s rear seat can slide forward or back to either increase cargo space or increase legroom, making it ideal not just for cargo space but also for passengers.
While both are strong competitors, the Chevy Equinox is sure to impress you on the road. Come take it for a spin today at LaSorsa Chevrolet Buick.
