2018 Ford Escape Blue


2019 Chevy Equinox Green



There's a lot to love when it comes to the 2019 Ford Escape and the 2019 Chevy Equinox. Both are safe, reliable SUVs for Fairview Heights families, but which pulls ahead in terms of pricing, interior features, and performance? The Escape makes it easier to drive a top-of-the-line SUV without compromising -- especially with the confidence of Ford Roadside Assistance.


The top-of-the-line crossovers have many similar features, and yet Ford allows O'Fallon drivers access to the finer things in life at a lower price than on the Equinox:

  • 2019 Ford Escape Titanium:$32,620
  • 2019 Chevy Equinox Premier w/2LZ: $35,600

Ford Escape vs. Equinox: Performance

 Ford Escape: The optional 245-hp 2.0L four-cylinder brings plenty of fun to your drive, but the standard 1.5L turbo and its 179 hp should be enough for most drivers. The available towing package lets drivers haul up to 3,500 pounds.

Chevy Equinox: The base engine is a 1.5L turbo 4-cylinder engine that's paired with a 6-speed automatic transmission and delivers 170 hp. The Equinox also has front-wheel drive as standard and an available towing capacity of 3,500 pounds.

Interior Features

Ford Escape: Stay connected with the Ford SYNC infotainment system, and keep your cargo safe with the cargo management system as you use the 34 to 68 cubic feet of storage space. This Ford SUV interior also features an optional dual-headrest DVD entertainment system and FordPass Connect with WiFi Hotspot (perfect for keeping the kids entertained on the way to St. Louis).

Chevy Equinox: The Equinox features power windows, single-zone manual climate control, and front carpeted floor mats. This SUV has a max cargo capacity of just 63.5 cubic feet, so you won't have quite as much storage space for Collinsville adventures.
