The Chevrolet Equinox VS Ford Escape
In a sea of SUV’s, the 2019 Chevrolet Equinox managed to break through the noise and earn itself the spot as the “Highest Ranked SUV in Initial Quality in a tie, Two Years in a Row” by the trusted reviewers at JD Power. Taking into consideration customer satisfaction, number of yearly incidents, and overall vehicle features, this review of the Chevrolet Equinox proves that it is one of the best in its class. A quick comparison to the Ford Escape Titanium will further prove this point.
The 2019 Chevrolet Equinox has two engine options to suit your daily driving needs, whether you’re looking for better fuel efficiency or the extra tow weight. The standard 2.4 L 4-Cylinder engine provides drivers with up to 31 MPH highway with Eco mode maximizing efficiency in your ride. The upgraded 3.6 L V6 Engine is a more powerful option with 301 horsepower that allows up to 3,500 lbs. towing. These numbers are quite impressive when lined up next to the Ford Escape Titanium, with only 245 horsepower.
Not only does the Chevrolet Equinox have the power to support your needs, but it also has the space. The interior of this vehicle is uncrowded and flexible, with Multi-flex sliding rear seats that slide back to allow for 39.9 inches of rear leg room. Need some extra storage space? You got it! The second row seat also folds forward to create 63.7 cubic feet of cargo space. This means you can easily and comfortably fit three back seat passengers, or pack up the car for a weekend getaway.
The numerous safety features of the Equinox ensure you can travel in confidence from point A to point B. Prevention features include available forward collision and rear cross traffic alert, rear vision camera, side blind zone alert, and lane departure warning. If a collision does occur, the standard 6 air bars and high-strength steel safety cage build into this vehicle are there to protect you from impact and outside elements. Chevrolet goes above and beyond to make sure their drivers are safe, and the Chevrolet Equinox is proof of their dedication to their mission to provide high class safety features in every single one of their vehicles.
