Performance & Design

Compared to the Ford Escape, the Chevrolet Equinox has more interior comfort and convenience, according to Kelley Blue Book's KBB.com Expert Reviews. As you can see in the chart above, the Equinox outperforms the Escape in that category by a sizable margin. The Ford Escape has narrow front seats and is lacking in rear seat capacity for passengers or storage space. The Chevy Equinox, on the other hand, has a spacious rear seat that comfortably accommodate three adult passengers. Meanwhile, the front seats in the Chevrolet SUV are molded into an ergonomic shape and wrapped in an available premium leather seating material, giving you two sources of comfort in one. Another benefit of the Equinox versus the Escape is the former's higher levels of convenience as a result of its practical storage and infotainment features. You can get a sense of the full range of interior advantages the Chevy Equinox offers by visiting our showroom at Johnson Chevrolet today.

It is hard to say whether the Ford Escape underperforms or the Chevrolet Equinox overperforms. The fact of the matter is, however, that the new Equinox SUV has far more horsepower available than the Escape SUV does. Granted, the Ford model features two available turbocharged 4-cylinder engines, which are surely peppy. No matter, its Chevy competitor has an available 3.6-liter V6 engine that produces about 25 percent more horsepower than its rival, the Escape. Even if you opt for the standard 2.4-liter 4-cylinder engine in the Chevrolet Equinox, this engine still puts out more horsepower than two of the three available engines for the Ford Escape.
