2020 Ford Escape vs 2020 Chevy Equinox

Serving Havelock, NC

Initially, the Ford Escape and the Chevy Equinox are relatively similar compact crossover SUVs with comparable pricing. However, there are critical differences between the two models that may influence your model selection. Are you ready to explore the Escape and the Equinox in detail?


Their differences are quickly apparent when you check out the exterior style of the Escape and the Equinox. The Escape displays its robust confidence through a sleek profile with a tapered, rounded nose. The small grille sits squarely in the center of the front and with foglamps flanking it. The dual-bulb headlights have a lightning-style LED ribbon, and they sit above the fog lamps. The Equinox, on the other hand, has a short nose with a rounded grille. This chrome grille is connected to the LED headlights. These lights carry around to the sides of the Equinox.


Inside the 2020 Ford Escape, you will discover a full array of modern features incorporated into a lovely design. The digital display screen behind the steering wheel shows off information related to the five driving modes, the gear selection, and more. Additional features include smart device integration, a heads-up display screen, a panoramic moonroof, and more. On the other hand, in the Chevy Equinox, you will find a traditional instrumentation screen and an embedded screen for the infotainment system. The Equinox's other features are hidden storage compartments, auto climate management, mounted steering wheel controls, and others.


For 2020, the Escape is available with two gas-powered engines, a hybrid powertrain, and a plug-in hybrid variant. The gas-powered engines are a 1.5-liter EcoBoost powertrain and a 2.0-liter EcoBoost variant. In comparison, the 2020 Chevy Equinox is available only with two gas-powered engines. As is the case with the 2020 Escape, the Escape options are a 1.5-liter turbo and a 2.0-liter turbo.
