Searching for a small SUV that can keep up with your ever-changing driving needs in Birmingham? At some point, you’ll probably find yourself at a common crossroads: Ford vs. Chevy. These iconic brands have mastered the art of blending utility and refinement, but you can only choose one at the end of the day. See how their small SUV offerings stack up in this Chevy Trax vs. Ford Escape comparison from Hendrick Chevrolet Hoover!

Chevy Trax vs. Ford Escape: Affordability

Vestavia Hills shoppers will save over $3,000 at the base-level when they opt for the 2021 Chevy Trax over the 2020 Ford Escape. There’s an even greater discrepancy between their top-tier trim pricing, though this in part caused by the Escape offering a greater number of trims.

However, for the significantly lower price of the range-topping Trax model, you’ll see several luxe upgrades that don’t become available in the Escape until you start nearing the $30,000 MSRP price point. Such features include leather seat trim, cruise control, and under-seat storage.
