Ford Escape vs Chevy Equinox

With the Ford Escape, you can have incredible convenience wherever you go, whether you're running errands around town or are taking a road trip across the country. When you drive the Ford Escape around town, you will have a maximum cargo capacity of 65.4 cubic feet, which is more than the Chevy Equinox's 63.9 cubic feet. And while these two SUVs both seat five people, the Ford Escape still manages to have 40.7 inches of second-row legroom, which is more than the Chevy Equinox.

If you want efficiency, then be sure to turn to the Ford Escape. With this incredibly capable vehicle, you can have access to the hybrid 2.5-liter iVCT Atkinson-cycle I-4 engine, which has a best-in-class fuel economy. Not only does the Ford Escape have a better maximum fuel economy than the Chevy Equinox, but it also boasts a maximum horsepower rating of 250, which is significantly higher than the Chevy Equinox's maximum horsepower of 170. Also, the Ford Escape has a maximum towing capacity of 3,500 pounds, which completely demolishes the Chevy Equinox's much weaker towing capacity of only 1,500 pounds.

Ford Escape vs Mazda CX-5

The Ford Escape is such a fantastic compact SUV, it can even stand tall against a luxury brand like Mazda. Compared to the Mazda CX-5, the Ford Escape boasts more available safety features that can keep you and your family safe as you cruise around town. With Ford Co-Pilot360™ Technology, you can have the following safety features at your disposal: Blind Spot Information System with Cross-Traffic Alert, Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop & Go and Lane Centering, Active Park Assist 2.0, Pre-Collision Assist with Automatic Emergency Braking, Evasive Steering Assist, Lane-Keeping System, Rear View Camera, Auto High-Beam Headlamps, and Voice-Activated Navigation System. The Mazda CX-5 has some of these features, but not all.

In terms of performance, these two compact SUVs are neck-and-neck, but the Ford Escape is simply more impressive. Both the Ford Escape and the Mazda CX-5 have a maximum horsepower rating of 250 and optional all-wheel drive, but the Ford Escape's all-wheel drive system is simply more advanced. When equipped with the available all-wheel drive disconnect feature, your Ford Escape will detect when all-wheel drive is not needed and disconnect the rear driveline. By doing this, the Ford Escape will be propelled only by the front wheels, allowing the Ford Escape to be more efficient than the Mazda CX-5.
