The 2021 Chevrolet Equinox and 2021 Ford Escape are neck and neck in regards to their passenger space, impressive safety features and ratings, as well as their warranty coverage. However, even with identical twins, one of them has just a little bit more spice than the other. Let’s find out just how fraternal these SUVs are.
2021 Chevrolet Equinox
The Chevrolet Equinox is a package deal when it comes to providing comfort for all five of its passengers, impressive handling, and two fine engine choices, which is likely why it’s the brand’s best selling SUV. The 1.5-liter turbocharged engine has an EPA rating at a suitable 28 mpg combined and 27 mpg with all-wheel-drive. This car drives on 170 horsepower with 203 lb-ft of torque.
The All-American brand’s latest SUV has a great catalog of standard active-safety features like forward-collision warning with automatic emergency braking, lane-departure warning, lane-keeping assist, and even IntelliBeam automatic headlights. It also has available blind-spot monitoring.
For entertainment, the Equinox has a standard 7-inch touchscreen and an available 8-inch version. Both have Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, as well as a Wi-Fi hotspot. The truck also has keyless entry, push-button start, four USB ports, 17-inch wheels, and the Teen Driver System that allows parents of tweens with a heavy foot to set parameters and relay information on driving habits.
Highlighting optional features include ventilated front seats, navigation, Bose audio, a panoramic sunroof, and a rear-seat entertainment system.
2021 Ford Escape
The Ford Escape was restyled last year and grew in size while also dropping a few pounds. The base engine upgraded to a turbocharger with a 3-cylinder 1.5-liter engine, which produces a decent 181 horsepower with 203 1b-ft of torque. The next engine option is a 2.0-liter 4-cylinder turbocharged engine, which really ramps up the ride with 250 horsepower. The eco-friendly hybrid engine only loses 50 horses, while the plug-in version does not differ much in its performance numbers.
The SUV has an intriguing amount of standard driver-assistance features. These driver-assists are a part of the brand’s Co-Pilot 360 bundle and include automatic emergency braking (with pedestrian detection), a blind-spot detection system, lane-keeping assist, and automatic high-beam headlights. Some exciting leisures include an 8-inch Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, which are present on all trims with the exception of the base S. Other standard features include 17-inch steel wheels, cloth seats, front bucket seats, a 6-speaker stereo, and Sync infotainment with Bluetooth, voice recognition, and in-vehicle Wi-Fi for up to 10 devices. There are also some exciting packages worth looking into, like the Technology Package for those who prioritize the best interior experience, or Class II Trailer Tow Package for off-road enthusiasts.
The Escape also has a design that is more carlike than SUV like with its rounded shape, and whether or not that is appealing comes down to a person’s purchase.
The 2021 Ford Escape has the advantage of providing hybrid engines, a great list of safety features, and even luggage space. However, the 2021 Equinox provides an overall better experience in its cabin with its stylish features and entertainment systems. On top of this, Equinox’s bigger and more aggressive design is easier to welcome than its competitor and also has a lower starting price. It is for this reason that the Equinox SUV is a more favorable choice for most car buyers.
