2017 Ford Escape vs. Chevy Equinox
In order to make the perfect escape, you need a vehicle that offers power, capability, and features. The 2017 Ford Escape does just that for less than the competition in Norman. Find out how it compares to the 2017 Chevrolet Equinox on the Oklahoma City, Mustang, and Blanchard roads.
- The Escape has a starting price of $23,750, which is almost $250 less than the starting price of the Equinox. Move up to the top trim level, and the Escape Titanium FWD is still almost $1,700 more affordable than the Equinox’s comparable model.
- There’s no escaping the power in the Escape, which offers up to 245 horsepower and 275 pound-feet of torque from its 2.0-liter Twin-Scroll EcoBoost engine. The Equinox only offers up to 182 horsepower and 172 pound-feet of torque, which is 63 horsepower and 103 pound-feet of torque less than the Escape.
- Four-wheel drive capability is less expensive in the Escape. In fact, upgrading to the Intelligent 4WD System in the Escape is over $1,100 more affordable than upgrading to all-wheel drive in the Equinox.
- The Escape gets up to 23 mpg city, thanks to the 1.5-liter EcoBoost engine. The Equinox falls short at 21 mpg city.
- The Escape offers more front row leg, shoulder, and hip room, and more second row hip room than the Equinox.
- Need to bring cargo along? Not a problem in the Escape, which boasts almost three extra cubic feet of cargo space than the Equinox behind the second row seat, and over four extra cubic feet of cargo space when the second row is folded.
- Remote engine start is an available feature on the base model of the Escape. The Equinox will make you pay almost $4,000 extra for this feature just to be an option.
- The Escape offers a panoramic sunroof. It won’t cost extra in the Equinox… because it’s not offered at all.
- You know what else isn’t in the Equinox? Adaptive Cruise Control, which the Escape offers.
