2014 Chevy Equinox vs. 2014 Ford Escape
The 2014 Chevy Equinox vs. The 2014 Ford Escape
With so many options in this segment, finding the right mid-size SUV in the Schaumburg area can be a time consuming process. However, here at Biggers Chevy in Elgin, we compared two of the segment’s most popular models to help our Schaumburg area customers make an informed purchasing decision. It’s a close race between the 2014 Chevy Equinox and the 2014 Ford Escape, but in the end Chevy’s SUV simply has more to offer. Take a look!
- Horsepower: Under the hood of the 2014 Chevy Equinox is a standard 2.4L I-4 engine that is capable of 182 hp and 172 lb-ft of maximum torque for quick acceleration. The 2014 Ford Escape is outfitted with a standard 1.6L engine that only puts out 173 hp, so you won’t have that extra “oomph” from your engine for confident merging and passing.
- Driving Range: While the 2014 Chevy Equinox and the 2014 Ford Escape both get an EPA estimated 32 mpg on the highway, the new Equinox has an 18.8 gallon fuel tank compared to the new Escape’s smaller 15.1 gallon tank. For those who want to spend more time on the road and less time filling up the tank, the new Chevy Equinox is the clear choice.
- Safety Features: The 2014 Chevy Equinox can come equipped with an available forward collision warning system. This new technology detects an impending crash using forward-mounted sensors to determine if a vehicle or object is approaching too quickly and uses audiovisual cues to alert you. An optional lane departure system for the new Equinox will alert you if it senses lane drifting. The 2014 Ford Escape does not offer a forward collision warning or lane departure system to help you avoid accidents.
