Comparison Review

Comfort
The Chevrolet Equinox offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Ford Escape, with comparable head- and legroom. The Ford Escape offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Chevrolet Equinox, offering the driver and front passenger a bit more room and comfort.

Convenience
With the Ford Escape, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Chevrolet Equinox, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

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). Whether you pick the Chevrolet Equinox or the Ford Escape, it's going to cost you about the same. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. In this case, the Chevrolet Equinox will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Ford Escape.

Dimensions
Since the Chevrolet Equinox is much slimmer than the Ford Escape, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. When looking at overall length, the Chevrolet Equinox takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as 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
When considering towing capacity, the Chevrolet Equinox is clearly the choice over the Ford Escape for pulling heavy loads. When it comes to horsepower, the Chevrolet Equinox greatly out-muscles 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 a roomier cargo area for putting your bags or other items than the Ford Escape.

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