2020 Ford Escape vs 2020 Chevrolet Equinox
Many things have changed in the automotive world in the last ten years. Things like the introduction of autonomous vehicles, huge developments in hybrid technology and the increasing popularity of the SUV and CUV markets. The SUV has taken over so much of the market that vehicle manufacturers, like Ford and Chevy, have stopped production of popular cars like the Chevy Impala, Ford Focus and the Ford Taurus. The stoppage of those product lines has allowed Ford to invest money in the redesign of its popular SUV, the Ford Escape. Lets see how the all new 2020 Ford Escape matches up to its competition, the 2020 Chevy Equinox.
The 2020 Ford Escape has four engine options, including 2 that are hybrid versions, max horsepower of 250 hp and max torque of 380 lb-ft. The 2020 Chevy Equinox has two engine options, no hybrid option, max horsepower of 252 and max torque of 260. Both of these vehicles have a maximum towing capacity of 3,500 pounds. If we take a look at the entry level models the 2020 Ford Escape S and the 2020 Chevy Equinox L the Ford Escape has more horsepower by 11 hp.
When it comes to mid-size SUVs, a big selling point is room. As the driver you want to make sure you and your passengers are comfortable. Lets see how the 2020 Ford Escape and the 2020 Chevy Equinox match up. Both the Escape and Equinox have 40 inches of head room in the front. However, the second row of the Ford Escape has almost an inch more headroom than the Equinox. The Ford Escape also has almost two inches more leg room in the front and an inch more leg room in the rear. The 2020 Ford Escape does this by making the rear seat slide forward and backwards. When the seat is slid all the way forward the 2020 Ford Escape has best-in-class cargo room. If the rear seat is slid all the way back it has best-in-class legroom. It is truly the best of both worlds.
The all new 2020 Ford Escape also has the latest technology and styling. The last redesign of the Chevy Equinox was back in 2017. A lot has changed in three years.
