Lakeland drivers looking closely for their next crossover end up considering two mammoths of automaking, Ford and Chevrolet. While in some cases the two can be relatively evenly matched, when it comes to the Chevy Equinox vs. Ford Escape, the differences between these two SUVs are many and great. By almost every possible metric, the 2020 Chevrolet Equinox consistently outpaces the 2020 Ford Escape. Read below with the Stingray Chevrolet experts to help decide how to upgrade your Valrico travels as we compare performance, price, and your standard and available features.

Ford Escape vs. Chevy Equinox: Performance

While the Ford Escape is a capable SUV with plenty to love, its performance does not measure up to the new Chevy Equinox. That being said, few crossovers can match the efficiency and power of the Chevy Equinox, especially for its affordable price point, which we’ll get to later. For now, see below the direct comparison of engine power and efficiency:

2020 Chevy Equinox

  • Base Engine: 1.5L Turbo 4-cylinder
  • Horsepower/Torque: 170 hp / 203 lb-ft of torque
  • EPA-Estimated Fuel Economy: 26 mpg city/32 mpg highway

2020 Ford Escape

  • Base Engine: 2.5L iVCT I-4
  • Horsepower/Torque: 168 hp / 170 lb-ft of torque
  • EPA-Estimated Fuel Economy: 21 mpg city/29 mpg highway

Consider the immense difference in horsepower and the 33 lb-ft of torque by which the Equinox outclasses the Escape. This Equinox performance package comes with an efficiency and fuel economy the Ford Escape could not hope to match, with an EPA-estimated combined 4 more mpg, saving you more at the pump–a feature Chevrolet brings to all of its new SUVs.

Ford Escape vs. Chevy Equinox: Features

Although the engine specs are important for those with an interest in towing their boat or trailering long distances, many Brandon drivers won’t settle on their vehicle without understanding the value of the available features. Those offered by Chevy as standard in the Equinox trim levels are only available with an expensive optional upgrade from Ford, a vehicle already more expensive than the Equinox at its base level. Expect these features on your new Equinox:

  • 7-inch diagonal color touchscreen
  • Steering wheel-mounted controls
  • Chevrolet Infotainment 3 system
  • 4G LTE Wi-Fi® hotspot capability
  • Fold-flat rear seat with 60/40 split
  • Keyless open/start

Chevy Equinox vs. Ford Escape: Pricing and Trims

The engineers and designers at Chevrolet have worked tirelessly to build top-quality vehicles that any driver can afford, which is why the Chevy Equinox again excels in the match-up against the Ford Escape. See below for the pricing difference for the base and premium trims.

Base Level Trim:

  • Base 2020 Chevrolet Equinox L: $23,800 starting MSRP
  • Base 2020 Ford Escape S: $24,885 starting MSRP

Premium Trim:

  • Top-Tier 2020 Chevrolet Equinox Premier: $31,400 starting MSRP
  • Top-Tier 2020 Ford Escape Titanium: $33,400 starting MSRP
