The engines found in both the Chevy Equinox and Ford Escape will purr as you press down on the accelerator. Between the two, which will give you more power as you make your daily drives?
The Equinox and Escape each come equipped standard with turbocharged 1.5L engines under their respective hoods. These engines also use direct injection fuel delivery systems, meaning that your engine only gets the gas it needs without wasting any drops.
While the engine in the Escape produces 190 lb-ft of torque, the Chevy Equinox shines with 203 lb-ft of torque. Torque is the ability to perform work, and in this case, “work” refers to making your vehicle soar down the road. The engine in the Equinox has increased torque and will have you cruising down the highway with added power.
The 2022 Chevy Equinox and 2021 Ford Escape offer roomier interiors that SUV-lovers are on the lookout for. In both vehicles, you will find 60/40 fold-flat rear seats that aid in maximizing cargo space, so you will have more room for camping equipment or groceries. Your cargo configuration can be customized to your unique needs.
The Equinox takes interior features to the next level, though. It offers available ventilated front seats and heated second-row onboard seats to keep you and your passengers comfortable through different climates. Summer scorchers and chilling winters are no match for these available seating options. Unfortunately, the Ford Escape does not offer heated seats to rear passengers.
The Chevy also helps you never forget a grocery or shopping bag in the back seat again with Rear Seat Reminder. When the second-row door is opened or closed before a trip, under certain conditions, the Rear Seat Reminder will display a visual and audible reminder to check your back seat when you have completed your trip. This helpful feature can be found standard in the Equinox but is not offered in the Escape.
These SUVs are packed with safety technology like Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning and Forward Collision Alert. These features can detect potential collisions and alert you to them to help you reduce collision impact or avoid it altogether.
In addition to safety technology, the Chevy Equinox and Ford Escape offer convenient features like an available hands-free liftgate. When your hands are full, simply wave your foot underneath the liftgate to trigger it to open.
The Equinox takes technology one step further with Surround Vision. This available feature provides a virtual overhead view of your vehicle to help you avoid nearby obstacles when parking. The Escape does come standard with a rearview camera, but it does not offer this extra helpful perspective.
