2016 Ford Escape vs 2016 Chevy Equinox

interior of the 2016 Ford Escape

A small crossover is an ideal vehicle for easy maneuverability on the city and highway, but also offers solid driving visibility and cargo space. In many regards either of the vehicles in this 2016 Ford Escape vs 2016 Chevy Equinox comparison meet those needs, but only one really delivers on cargo versatility, trailering capability, and driving zip. We mean the Ford Escape of course. With three engine options compared to the Chevy's two, the 2016 Ford Escape can meet any power needs. The Escape also offers impressive acceleration at every level, though the top turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder with 240 horsepower and 270 pound-feet of torque certainly offers top performance. Added to that, the 2016 Ford Escape is, simply put, fun to drive, and never gives you problems when delivering on that power.

When it comes to cargo versatility, the 2016 Ford Escape also beats the Chevy in most categories. It has almost three more cubic feet of luggage space behind the rear seats, and also a significantly larger maximum towing capacity by default on the upper trims. That means that the new Ford Escape is a much better option whether you are loading up the family to visit relatives, or hooking up the boat or trailer for a longer summer adventure.
