If you’re looking for a smaller SUV that’s got plenty of exciting technology, power, and safety features, you have a lot of options, and you’ve likely seen the 2020 Chevy Equinox and the 2020 Ford Escape on list after list of popular SUVs. If you’re having a hard time deciding which to park in your garage, we’re here to break the tie with a helpful comparison on some of their key features and attributes.
When comparing the power and performance of the 2020 Equinox and the 2020 Escape, you’ll find that the vehicles are rather neck and neck in many aspects. Both have base engines that are 1.5 liters, and though the Escape offers more horsepower, the Equinox comes out on top with significantly more torque than its competitor. When properly equipped, both SUVs can tow up to 3,500 pounds, and both vehicles maintain a respectable fuel efficiency for their class.
You already spend a significant amount of time in your vehicle with your daily driving, and if you’re purchasing an SUV to accompany you on long-haul adventures, you’ll want to make sure you’re riding in comfort for the duration of the journey. Here, the Equinox has a clear advantage over the Escape. While the Equinox comes standard with desirable infotainment features including Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, the Escape reserves that top-notch smartphone connectivity for higher trim levels. The Equinox is absolutely value-packed from top to bottom, offering ample technology features at a lower starting point than the Escape.
When safety is more important than ever, the driver assistance package on your new vehicle deserves some serious consideration. You’ll find more safety tech in the 2020 Equinox, which offers automatic emergency braking, lane keep assist, lane departure warning, a forward collision alert, front pedestrian braking, a following distance indicator, Intellibeam headlamps, and a rearview camera as standard features. In comparison, the 2020 Escape offers only a blind spot monitor with cross-traffic alert, automatic emergency braking, automatic headlamps, a lane keeping system, and a rearview camera as standard safety features.
