2014 Ford Escape vs. 2014 Chevrolet Equinox

2014 Ford Escape

If it's time for you to upgrade your existing vehicle with a new compact crossover, it would be hard to make a better choice than the 2014 Ford Escape. The 2014 Chevrolet Equinox may be a well made vehicle but it just can't stack up with the Escape, currently available here at Arlington Heights Ford, your leading Schaumburg area Ford dealer. Here are a few reasons why:

  • Fuel Economy: Both of these vehicles offer respectable fuel economy numbers, but the Escape really dials it up with available EcoBoost turbocharged engines. The best EPA estimate the Equinox is capable of-with front wheel drive and 2.4L four-cylinder-is only 22 mpg city/32 mpg highway. The Ford with 1.6L EcoBoost engine is good for 23 mpg city/26 mpg highway.
  • Powertrain Options: If you want to go up to more power, you can choose a 2.0L four-cylinder in the Escape and a 3.6L V6 in the Equinox. The Equinox makes a bit more power with 301 hp and 272 lb-ft of torque. The Escape will make 240 hp and 270 lb-ft of torque. With engine upgrades, the Escape wins the fuel economy battle again with an impressive 22 mpg city/30 mpg highway while the Equinox is rated at only 17 mpg city/24 mpg highway.
  • High-Tech Features: Even the base model Escape gets features like Bluetooth Phone and Audio Connectivity, the Sync voice command interface, the MyKey parental controls, and more. You'll have to upgrade to higher level trims to get some of those high tech features.
  • Space: The Escape simply offers more cargo space than the Equinox. With the rear seats folded down the Escape can pack as much as 68.1 cubic feet of stuff while the Equinox only has room for up to 63.7 cubic feet.
