A compact SUV like the Ford Escape or Chevrolet Equinox should feature agile handling and lots of cargo room, all while keeping you safe on any terrain. So, which one has what you're looking for in your next SUV?

Ray Price Ford helps drivers in Scranton, Mount Pocono, and Tobyhanna decide with this 2020 Ford Escape vs. Chevy Equinox comparison.

2020 Ford Escape vs Chevy Equinox: Cargo Room


The Ford Escape has a versatile interior that's as comfortable as it is convenient. You can relax behind the wheel with 42.4 inches of legroom, while a large trunk space lets you carry plenty of cargo.

The Chevy Equinox doesn't provide you with as much cargo room. It also won't be as comfortable to drive, with only 40.9 inches of front legroom.

While both SUVs have 60/40 split rear seats and offer a hands-free, foot-activated liftgate, the Escape gives you the freedom to pack more on your next trip.

Ford Escape vs Chevy Equinox Safety

The 2020 Escape uses a solid design, advanced airbag system, and lots of available features to keep you safe. There are seven airbags throughout the cabin, including a driver's knee airbag and a Safety Canopy® System with side-curtain airbags and a rollover sensor.

The Equinox also has side curtain airbags, but it only has six airbags and doesn't have one for the driver's lower body.

new Escape can also prevent accidents before they occur. It offers an array of driver-assisting features that look out for your SUV, such as:

  • Adaptive Cruise Control & Forward Collision Warning with Brake Support
  • Auto High-Beam Headlamps
  • BLIS® (Blind Spot Information System) with Cross-Traffic Alert
  • Lane-Keeping System

These features will make you more aware when you're on the road, yet you can count on the Escape to help you park, too. It offers an Enhanced Active Park Assist feature that can find a space and parallel park for you.

The Equinox offers safety features similar to these, but it doesn't have technology that can measure a spot for you and steer you into place.

Ford Escape vs Chevy Equinox Capability

Both the Ford Escape and Chevy Equinox have standard front-wheel drive but offer all-wheel drive. Each one is also able to tow up to 3,500 pounds. The Escape makes your drive easier, both on and off the road, though.

At 180.5 inches long, the Escape is able to pull off a tight turn. The Equinox is anything but nimble. Its body stretches for a long while, measuring at 183.1 inches. This makes it a little tougher to navigate tight spots.
