Chevy Equinox vs. Ford Escape: Base Price and Key Features

Starting at an MSRP of $23,800, the 2020 Chevy Equinox is packed with features yet has a starting MSRP of just over $1,000 less that of the Ford Escape. It comes well-equipped with a host of great interior features that Birmingham drivers will love, including:

  • OnStar® with 4G LTE connectivity and a Wi-Fi hotspot
  • 7-inch touchscreen
  • Apple CarPlay®/Android Auto™
  • Automatic headlights
  • Rearview camera
  • Keyless entry and ignition

Ford Escape vs. Chevy Equinox: Teen Driving Features

Parents of teen drivers around Vestavia Hills know that it’s hard to feel peace of mind when your teen is out driving without you, but the Chevy Equinox gets you as close to it as possible. The Teen Driver suite on the Chevy Equinox acts as an extra set of eyes and allows you to somewhat control how your teenager drives, and it’s a feature that is not available in the Ford Escape. Here are some of the confidence-inspiring things Teen Driver can do:

  • Provide an in-vehicle report card so you can review how your teen has been driving
  • Audibly and visually warn the driver when they exceed a set speed limit
  • Restrict the maximum speed allowed by the vehicle to 85 mph
  • Limit the volume levels on the audio
  • Require the driver to buckle up before the vehicle can be shifted into Drive
  • Mute car audio until front-seat occupants are buckled up

Chevy Equinox vs. Ford Escape: Switchable All-Wheel Drive

All-wheel drive is an essential feature to have when driving in the occasional Bessemer harsh road conditions, but it’s nice to use the more fuel-efficient front-wheel-drive when AWD isn’t necessary. Switchable All-Wheel Drive in the 2020 Chevy Equinox allows you to switch between FWD and AWD at your discretion. The Ford Escape leaves that decision to the vehicle, while the Chevy Equinox gives you complete control of the feature.
