Finding the right SUV to manage your daily list of errands often depends on what style works best for you.

Even when matched against popular competitors like the Chevy Equinox, the Escape shows why it's the top choice for many of our drivers!



Both models come standard with a 1.5-liter turbocharged four-liter engine. However, the Ford Escape is the faster option, offer up to 181 horsepower to Equinox's 170 horsepower. The Ford Escape also offers a 2.0-liter EcoBoost® powertrain that delivers 250 horsepower and 280 pound-feet of torque - the Chevy SUV has no engine option that compares.


Leg Room

While the Ford Escape and Chevy Equinox both seat five passengers, the Escape offers a bit more passenger space to help you stretch out comfortably.



Looking for something a little more efficient? The 2021 Escape can equip a 2.5-liter hybrid or plug-in hybrid engine, with the hybrid managing an EPA-estimated 43/37 mpg city/highway. The Chevy Equinox has no hybrid engine in its lineup currently.


Looking to fill every nook and cranny for your family vacation? The 2021 Escape offers up to 65.4 cubic feet behind the front row - the Equinox is a bit more limited, with only 63.9 cubic feet.


With plenty of convenient technology to assist you on your drive, either SUV is a stellar option to keep you and yours entertained. Both come equipped with available touchscreens, smartphone integration, navigation, and Wi-Fi hotspots. However, the Ford Escape also offers a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster, making it easier to stay up to date on your vehicle's important information - the Equinox can't match this feature.


Safety is an integral part of shopping for an SUV. The Ford Escape comes with a plethora of available features, including a Blind-Spot Information System with Cross-Traffic Alert, a Lane-Keeping System, and a lane departure warning. While the Chevy Equinox also offers these features, the Escape takes your peace of mind one step further with the available Active Park Assist 2.0 feature to help you effortlessly park anywhere you want. Chevy won't offer you the same feature.
