    Fuel Economy

    Though the Chevy Equinox’s fuel economy only surpasses the Ford Escape’s by 1mpg on the highway, this still can make a difference in efficiency. In fact, if you drove both vehicles an average of 20,000 miles annually, the 2013 Chevy Equinox would save you $57 more in gas than the Ford Escape.

    Additionally, the Equinox has a 3.7 gallon greater fuel tank capacity than the Escape. This means that you will make 10 fewer trips to the gas station with the Equinox each year! This illustrates Chevy’s belief that you should spend less time and money at the gas pump and more time enjoying your vehicle on the open roads.

In their Front-Crash tests, they both were awarded 4 out of 5 stars. In their Side-Crash tests, they both scored a perfect 5-Stars. They both scored 4 out of 5 stars again in their Rollover Probability tests. Either vehicle is a good choice in crash safety.

     

    Warranty Coverage

    As is typical for all Chevy and Ford cars, both the Equinox and the Escape feature 3-year/36,000-mile Bumper-to-Bumper Limited warranties. But in its PowerTrain Limited warranty, the 2013 Chevy Equinox goes that extra mile… 40,000 extra miles, in fact! You got that right! The Chevy Equinox’s 5-year/100,000-mile PowerTrain warranty is there to take you further.

    In addition, the Chevy Equinox features a Roadside Assistance Program. This program features the following services:

    <> > Lockout Service – you will be assisted when you accidentally lock your keys inside the vehicle.

    <> > Flat Tire Change – a spare will be installed for you.

    <> > Fuel Delivery – If you run out of gas, $5 worth of fuel will be brought to you to get you back on the road.

    <> > Emergency Towing – your car will be towed to your nearest dealer.

    <> > Jump-Starts – you will be assisted if you need your car jump-started.

    The Ford Escape does not have a Roadside Assistance Program at all! The Chevy’s impressive warranty coverage makes the 2013 Equinox the clear choice for ensured vehicle reliability, and it exemplifies Chevy’s dedication to you.

     

    Summary

    With its greater fuel efficiency and exceptional warranty coverage, the 2013 Chevy Equinox proves to be the better choice over the Ford Escape in their side-by-side comparison.
