CHEVY TRAX VS FORD ECOSPORT PERFORMANCE SPECS
The 2020 Trax and EcoSport each power themselves with turbocharged engines. A turbocharged ECOTEC® 4-cylinder in the Chevrolet SUV will provide you with 138 horsepower. The base EcoBoost® 3-cylinder that powers the Ford serves up a comparable 123 horsepower.
You’ll see a similar slight advantage for the Trax when it comes to fuel economy. The Trax has an EPA-estimated 31 highway MPG at its most efficient, so you can spend less time at the fuel pump. The EcoSport sees up to 29 highway MPG when properly equipped.
Available all-wheel drive (AWD) in the Trax, and available 4-wheel drive (4WD) in the EcoSport, ensure that even slippery roads won’t slow you down!
CHEVY TRAX VS FORD ECOSPORT DIMENSIONS
The appeal of urban SUVs can be found in their maneuverability. The Chevrolet Trax and Ford EcoSport exterior dimensions are such that even the sharpest turns are easy to take in stride.
Inside, dimensions favor the Trax ever so slightly in terms of passenger volume. While the two vehicles share the same front headroom dimensions, rear passengers in the Trax will enjoy more headroom than their EcoSport counterparts:
|2020 Chevy Trax||2020 Ford EcoSport|
|Passenger Volume||92.8 cubic feet||91.1 cubic feet|
|First-Row Headroom||39.6 inches||39.6 inches|
|Second-Row Headroom||38.8 inches||37.5 inches|
Drivers may find they prefer having the extra headroom in the rear seat of the Trax. For your comfort behind the wheel, though, both SUVs offer available 6-way power driver seats. Available heated front seats will keep you cozy when the winter weather sets in, too!
CHEVY TRAX VS FORD ECOSPORT SAFETY FEATURES
When you need to maneuver through tight spaces, the 2020 Trax and EcoSport have you covered. Both come standard with Rear Vision Cameras to make backing up that much easier.
Both include available Side Blind Zone Alert features to help you detect traffic in your blind spots when you need to change lanes. You won’t need to ask your passenger if you have room to get over.
The Chevy Trax offers some available driver-assist features you won’t find on the EcoSport, however. It can be equipped with Forward Collision Alert to warn you of front-end collisions. If you get too close to the vehicle ahead, you’ll receive a warning as well.
