2020 Ford Escape vs 2020 Chevy Equinox

Serving Seneca, SC

Small SUVs are some of the most sought-after automobiles that money can buy. The 2020 Ford Escape and 2020 Chevy Equinox just so happen to be top-shelf SUVs that will serve your automotive requests. Despite their small stature, these automobiles are packed with comfort components, tech advancements, and many other amenities. Ford and Chevy offer multiple trim levels for each SUV, but let's get into some of their available features.

Performance

The 2020 Ford Escape starts by offering three engine types. The 1.5-liter engine has EcoBoost technology as well as Auto Start/Stop function. In total, these engines will produce between 181 to 250 horsepower depending on your trim choice. There's a 2.0-liter engine as well as a 2.5-liter engine that's hybrid. Fuel efficiency is terrific for daily driving, and there are selectable drive modes. An intelligent all-wheel drive is also available for tremendous amounts of traction. The 2020 Chevy Equinox offers two engine types, including a 2.0-liter turbocharged engine that delivers an estimated 252 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque. There's also a fuel-efficient engine that's 1.5 liters in size. Switchable all-wheel drive is available, but it lacks the savviness of Ford's Intelligent all-wheel drive. This SUV goes on to provide good maneuverability thanks to its stature, but it leaves you wanting more.

Technology

Tech advancements are in abundance with the 2020 Escape. Smartphone integration will come in the form of Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. Ten devices can connect to the Wi-Fi, and it provides 4G-LTE speed. The vehicle's touchscreen display is vivid, user friendly, and bold. You can access navigation, settings, and popular apps from this location. Voice-command function can be experienced with Alexa technology, which can connect to your home's smart devices. Waze technology and Google Maps are also available. The 2020 Equinox will come with many of the same tech features, including Apple CarPlay and Android. In-vehicle Wi-Fi isn't available, but consumers can expect six USB ports as well as wireless charging. The SUV's user-friendly display hosts numerous apps, and you can answer text messages by touching the screen. Alexa innovation is also offered.

Features

Up to five people can sit in the 2020 Escape's cabin. Fine craftsmanship is available for its interior with its woodgrain accents. There's a rotary dial for shifting gears as well as 60/40 split-fold rear seats. The 2020 Equinox can seat at least five people in its cabin, and its interior hosts 63.9 cubic-feet of cargo space. Its interior is very modern, but it falls a bit short when being compared to its competitor. Consumers can expect driver-assistance technology and a rear-vision camera. The 2020 Ford Escape takes the win because it brings more to the table.
