2018 Chevrolet Equinox vs. 2018 Ford Escape Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Chevrolet Equinox than in the Ford Escape. The Ford Escape will be a hit with tall drivers and their front seat passengers, since it has greater front head- and legroom than the Chevrolet Equinox.

Convenience
The Chevrolet Equinox requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Ford Escape, making it more convenient to drive.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). The Chevrolet Equinox is somewhat more expensive than the Ford Escape. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. Both the Chevrolet Equinox and the Ford Escape have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Chevrolet Equinox is about the same width as the Ford Escape. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Chevrolet Equinox, which is slightly longer than the Ford Escape.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the Chevrolet Equinox does a much better job of transmitting its engine's horsepower to its wheels than the Ford Escape.

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the Ford Escape is clearly the choice over the Chevrolet Equinox for pulling heavy loads. When it comes to horsepower, the Chevrolet Equinox has a lot less horsepower than the Ford Escape.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Chevrolet Equinox and the Ford Escape. The Chevrolet Equinox has less cargo space than the Ford Escape, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
The Chevrolet Equinox comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Ford Escape.
