Outperforms Under the Hood and on the Streets
If you were going to have a Grease-like race for pink slips in the Equinox and the Escape, you better pray to Danny Zuko’s hair gel that you’re in the Equinox, because it is going to leave the Escape in its dust! While the Escape has an impressive 2.5L 4-cylinder engine, it only gets 168 horsepower and 170 lb-ft of torque. On the other hand the Equinox has a 2.4L 4-cylinder engine and gets a whopping 182 horsepower and 172 lb-ft of torque. Don’t lose your pink slip, drive the Equinox!
Log On No Matter Where You Are
One of the hands down best things about new cars these days is the technology! The Escape and the Equinox both offer great tech like Bluetooth, touchscreen, navigation and more, but the only one to offer OnStar assistance and 4G LTE WiFi is the 2016 Chevrolet Equinox! Log on, sync up, and go ahead and check your Facebook from that National Park, we won’t judge you!
Safety You Can Count On
There’s nothing more important than safety when it comes to looking for a new vehicle. You could forgo the WiFi for safety if it meant the world of difference, but in the Equinox and the Escape it doesn’t. The Escape earned a “poor” rating by the IIHS in the small-overlap frontal-offset crash test, whereas the Equinox received the highest rating of “good” in the same category. Choose the safest. Choose the Chevy Equinox.
