The 2013 Chevy Equinox vs. the 2013 Ford Escape

With its more compact size, great handling, and comfortable interior, the 2013 Chevy Equinox is a popular choice in the crossover class. As a good crossover, it is great at multi-tasking, especially if it means soccer games in the morning, moving day in the afternoon, and a dinner date at night. You can find the 2013 Equinox at Cox Chevy, in Bradenton, just a short trip from Tampa and many other communities in the Sun Coast area. We’re located on Cortez Road West, just a quarter mile to the west of the Sweetbay Supermarket.   With a similar size and price range to the Equinox, the 2013 Ford Escape is another option in the crossover class. When it comes to standard and available equipment, though, Chevy lives up to its name by providing a full list of options, many of which are unavailable on comparable Escape models. Let’s look at how the two models match up.

More for Your Money on the Equinox

The Equinox delivers some of today’s best standard features. Options vary from trim to trim, but we’ll be comparing the Equinox FWD LT 1LT and the Ford Escape SE. Here are just a few of the options that are either standard or available on the Equinox that are not available on the comparable Escape:

  • Rearview camera
  • Power tilt sunroof
  • Power driver seat
  • Leather-wrapped steering wheel
  • Daytime running lights
  • Remote keyless start
  • Brake assist
  • Chrome wheels

Vehicle Warranty

On top of all the extra features, the Equinox also comes with Chevy’s 100,000 mile / five-year powertrain and roadside assistance warranty. This is compared to the 60,000 mile / five-year plan offered by Ford. For drivers who put moderate to heavy amounts of wear on their vehicle, this protection is vital.
