2020 Ford Escape vs 2020 Chevy Equinox

Crossover SUVs are typically more compact than their larger counterparts, but tend to have better fuel efficiency. So while the decision to choose a crossover over a traditional SUV might be relatively easy, searching for the right crossover may prove far more difficult. This article will help breakdown the benefits of two available crossovers on the market now: the 2020 Ford Escape and the 2020 Chevy Equinox. Read on below to figure out which vehicle is best suited to your needs.

The Ford Escape comes in four engine options: a 1.5L EcoBoost inline-4 engine, a 2.0L EcoBoost engine, a 2.5L hybrid, and a plug-in hybrid. The most powerful engine choice offers 250 horsepower and 280 lb-ft of torque, with either 8-speed automatic or continously variable automatic transmission. It can tow up to 3,500 lbs, and drive an estimated 582 miles on one tank of gas. With a fuel efficiency of 44 city mpg, the Escape is an economical choice for those that want a more powerful ride.
