Two Popular SUVs go Head-to-Head and the Escape Comes out on Top

Newer isn’t always better. A prime example of this is how the 2017 Ford Escape beats the 2018 Chevy Equinox in a head-to-head comparison. The Ford Escape has been one of Canada’s best selling SUVs for years, and it’s easy to see why in this updated model. The recently released 2018 Equinox simply can’t compete with the slightly older Escape in some key areas, not the least of which is price.

Quite the Looker

Few like to admit it, but what a vehicle looks like is important to pretty much everyone. No one wants to drive down the road in an ugly vehicle, which isn’t a concern when you’re driving the 2017 Ford Escape. With an updated exterior for 2017, the Escape is widely regarded as one of the best looking compact SUVs available.


Looks are subjective, but in the style category, many believe the bulkier-looking 2018 Chevy Equinox just doesn’t compare.

Less Visits to the Gas Pump

Face it, gas isn’t cheap. Any SUV that lets you stretch your dollar a little further is a huge benefit for you and your bank account. That is one of the Escape’s biggest benefits compared to the Chevy Equinox. With the 2.0L Twin-Scroll EcoBoost® I-4 engine under the hood, the 2017 Ford Escape’s fuel efficiency is rated at 10.6 L/100 km city and 8.0 L/100 km highway. The Equinox, on the other hand, is rated at 14.8 L/100 km in the city and 9.9 L/100 km on the highway. That’s a big difference that will add up quickly at the gas pump.

Infotainment and Features

In today’s day and age, there is no excuse for a mediocre infotainment system. More than just a touch screen to change the radio station, a quality infotainment helps your entire driving experience. From helping you navigate to a destination, to keeping you updated on your vehicle’s performance, to keeping your children occupied and entertained, an infotainment system can make or break a vehicle.

The Ford Escape Titanium and SE trims give you the option of Ford’s sophisticated Sync 3 infotainment system. Now in its third generation, Sync 3 puts an incredible amount of capabilities and connectivity at your fingertips. The Chevy MyLink infotainment system is no slouch, however. Try both for yourself, but many agree the user-friendliness of Sync 3 puts it ahead of it’s competitors.

“The Sync 3 infotainment system ... is highly intuitive to control; its ability to be manipulated via voice commands, buttons, knobs, and touchscreen input enables a quick learning curve for the user. Syncing devices to Bluetooth works seamlessly and provides quality audio during phone calls…” - Car and Driver
