2021 Chevy Equinox vs. 2020 Ford Edge

On the hunt for a new crossover SUV in Bradenton? Like many drivers, you may have wanted to learn about the offerings in this segment from two storied American manufacturers: the 2021 Chevrolet Equinox vs. 2020 Ford Edge. When you look closely, it’s remarkable how the compact Equinox has comparable space to move inside and great gas mileage for less money. Cox Chevrolet looks in detail at the Equinox vs. Edge match-up below!

2021 Chevy Equinox vs. Edge Size

An Equinox vs. Edge size comparison isn’t just about how much space these SUVs take up on the road, but also about how much space they have for your passengers to stretch. While the Edge is a larger vehicle, the Equinox vs. Edge size matchup is surprisingly competitive, with the Equinox offering almost as much cargo space as its rival, and it nearly matches the Ford Edge rear passenger space:

  • Cargo Space, Trunk: Up to 39.2 cubic feet in the 2020 Ford Edge, 29.9 cubic feet in the 2021 Chevy Equinox.
  • Cargo Space Seats Folded: Here’s where the Equinox shows its utility. You can get up to 73.4 cubic feet in the 2020 Ford Edge. You can max out at 63.5 cubic feet of cargo space on the 2021 Chevy Equinox.
  • Rear Headroom: 40.3 inches for the 2020 Edge and 38.5 inches for the 2021 Equinox.
  • Rear Legroom: 40.6 inches for the 2020 Edge and 39.7 inches for the 2021 Equinox

And remember, the base MSRP is $7,000 lower on the Chevy Equinox, so you’re getting almost as much space for a lot less money.
