Are you in the market for a 2020 Ford Escape? We can’t blame you! Considering the power, fuel efficiency, and safety features that are packed into this sharp-looking SUV, who wouldn’t want to be seen driving around Topeka in one? Fortunately, you can find the new Escape at Laird Noller Auto Group now. But how does it stack up against the competition, like the Chevy Equinox? We’ve put together a side by side base model comparison of the 2020 Chevy Equinox vs the 2020 Ford Escape, so that you can make an informed choice. Of course, we’re partial to the Ford Escape. But after seeing the numbers, we think you will be, too.

2020 Chevy Equinox vs. the 2020 Ford Escape – Fuel Economy

There really is no contest when it comes to gas mileage. The 2020 Equinox L has a combined (city and highway) EPA-estimated gas mileage of 28 miles per gallon. Compare that to the 30 miles per gallon EPA-estimated gas mileage of the Ford Escape S. This is largely due to the 1.5L EcoBoose engine found in the Escape. So, when it comes to fuel economy, the Escape is the clear winner in the Chevy Equinox vs. Ford Escape contest.

2020 Chevy Equinox vs the 2020 Ford Escape – Under the Hood

If raw power is important to you, then the Ford Escape is your vehicle. The 1.5L engine is able to deliver 181 horsepower, compared to just 170 from the Equinox. Not to mention that all-wheel drive is available on the Ford Escape S, but not on the Chevy Equinox L. When it comes to overall performance and capabilities, the Escape is once again on top in the Chevy Equinox vs. Ford Escape comparison.

Ford Escape vs Chevy Equinox – Price

These two SUVs are priced about the same. The MSRP of the 2020 Ford Escape S comes in at $24,885, which is just a little under $24,995 for the 2020 Equinox L. But considering how much more you get for the price, the Escape is by far the better bargain. And that’s not even counting additional savings you can get by taking advantage of our new vehicle specials.
