2018 Chevrolet Equinox vs 2018 Ford Escape in Clinton Township, MI

2018 Chevrolet Equinox vs 2018 Ford Escape in Clinton Township, MIPictured above is the 2018 Chevrolet Equinox with optional features. 

Finding the ideal compact crossover can be a challenge. At Moran Automotive, we understand that you have many options to choose from, so to make your decision easier, we’re excited to present the 2018 Chevrolet Equinox. Loaded with technology designed to improve every aspect of the drive, this Chevy is something to behold. To show you just how confident we are in the Equinox, we’re comparing it to the 2018 Ford Escape. Contact us today to learn more!

Let’s kick things off by taking a look under the hood. In the 2018 Equinox, your rides will be powered by a standard 1.5L turbocharged 4-cylinder engine that produces a satisfying 203 lb.-ft. of torque. Equipped with just a 2.5L 4-cylinder system at the base trim, the 2018 Escape only manages to offer 170 lb.-ft. of torque. Although this Ford can be equipped with an optional 1.5L EcoBoost® 4-cylinder engine, it still falls short of the Chevy with just 177 lb.-ft. of torque. Moreover, the Escape isn’t nearly as efficient as the Equinox, achieving 30 MPG hwy1 with this powertrain, compared to 32 MPG hwy2 offered by the crossover from Chevrolet. So whether you value power or economy, the Equinox is the superior vehicle!

There’s no doubt that protecting your loved ones from harm is at the top of your list of essentials. Though both the Ford Escape and 2018 Chevrolet Equinox offer an array of safety features, it’s abundantly clear that the vehicle from Chevy does more for you. Thanks to available Surround Vision3, you’ll have a virtual bird’s-eye view of your vehicle to give you a better understanding of what’s around you. Additionally, the Equinox offers the available Teen Driver advancement through your Chevrolet MyLink4 display to help you instill good driving habits in your new motorist. You can set a maximum speed and radio volume, among other controls, to keep your teenager safe on the road. If you’re looking for these systems in the Escape, you won’t be able to find them.

Finally, enjoy every second of the drive to The Mall at Partridge Creek by choosing a vehicle that supplies plenty of features to enhance your comfort. While the Chevy Equinox and Ford Escape both include a variety of accommodations for the driver and front passenger, the crossover from Chevy also sees that those sitting in the back are taken care of. Keep everyone warm on chilly winter mornings by equipping the rear seats with heating technology, so no one is left out in the cold. In the Escape, only the front seats can be equipped with this function. Furthermore, there’s more room to stretch out in the Chevy, with a generous 39.7 inches of rear legroom, compared to the paltry 37.3 inches supplied in its rival from Ford.

After putting the two crossovers to the test, we’ve determined that between the 2018 Chevrolet Equinox vs 2018 Ford Escape in Clinton Township, MI, the vehicle from Chevy is your winner! To experience this impressive ride for yourself, pay a visit to Moran Automotive for a test drive today.

Great and friendly service department! Waiting room has nice amenities like free popcorn, coffee, hot chocolate. Also two vending machines for pop and snacks. Showroom has quite a few sales people that are willing to answer questions if you have them or let you browse if you're just taking a look. Overall pretty good experience for coming in for an oil change even if there was a decent wait with an appointment.
