2017 Ford Escape vs. 2017 Chevrolet Equinox

2 of 13


Winner: 2017 Ford Escape

At the base trim levels, the Escape S starts at $23,600 and Equinox L starts at $23,100, we’ll call this one a draw. Both vehicles are sparsely equipped, with basics like a rearview camera and a simple audio system. The Equinox comes with OnStar and a standard Wi-Fi hot spot, and the Escape comes with Ford’s MyKey system and the SYNC infotainment system.

The comparison gets clearer when it comes to the Escape SE ($25,100) and Equinox LS ($25,510). Chevy adds just satellite radio, but Ford adds keyless entry, a power driver’s seat, dual-zone automatic climate control, and a better engine, as well as satellite radio. The Escape also offers more option packages than the Equinox.

The SUVs’ top trim levels are comparable in price, but Ford includes many more standard features than Chevrolet.
