2020 Ford Escape vs 2020 Chevrolet Equinox 

For as long as vehicles have been in production across North America, two model brands have been able to rise above the rest of the pack and capture the hearts and imaginations of drivers - Ford and Chevrolet. Born and bred in Detroit, these two rivals have had quite the history together, always working to one-up each other in every model type that they produce. The result is vehicles like the upcoming 2020 Ford Escape and Chevrolet Equinox crossovers, two models that are undoubtedly at the top of the small SUV class. But don’t mistake that to mean that they can’t perform; both the Escape and Equinox have everything you need to enjoy every drive.

Test drive the 2020 Ford Escape at Sherwood Ford in Edmonton AB 

Right off the bat, you’ll notice that the Escape’s larger interior area and smoother transmission makes it a worthy competitor for anyone, most notably the Equinox. Stepping inside the 2020 Escape, you’ll be greeted by leather-trimmed bucket seats (complete with a 10-way Power Driver seat) and dual-zone electronic automatic temperature control, neither of which are matched on the Equinox.  

That’s not all – the 2020 Escape has taken great measures to ensure that your connectivity and convenience are top priorities inside. It offers a built-in Wi-Fi hotspot, B&O Sound System, and 12.3-inch Digital Instrument Cluster that shows you all the specifics of your drive in real time; that’s simply unrivaled with models such as the Equinox, and it further solidifies the Escape’s claim to the Canadian crossover throne.
