Chevy Equinox vs. Ford Escape: Interior Dimensions

If your South Bend family is quickly growing, you’re going to need plenty of interior space in your vehicle. Both the Equinox and the Escape seat five passengers with ease and comfort, but when you compare their dimensions in-depth, you’ll find that the Escape offers a significant amount more space where it matters most.

    • Front Legroom – 43.1 inches
    • Front Headroom – 39.9 inches
    • Front Hip Room – 55.9 inches
    • Rear Legroom – 37.3 inches
    • Rear Headroom – 39.0 inches

True, the Equinox has a slight advantage in rear legroom. But beyond that’s, it’s pretty clear that the Escape is the overall winner, offering more front legroom and rear hip room, which is something Osceola parents will be happy to have when their children are arguing over personal space in the back seat.

Where total cargo volume is concerned, the Escape has a significant leg up on the Equinox, offering as much as 68.0 cubic feet of storage. The Equinox, on the other hand, only offers a meager 63.9 cubic feet of space.

Chevy Equinox vs. Ford Escape: Engine Specs

While the entry-level Escape MSRP comes in at $305 more than the entry-level Equinox, it’s a small amount to pay for a lot more base engine power. Take an in-depth look at each SUV’s engine specs:

  • Ford Escape Standard Engine
    • 2.5L I-4 with iVCT (intake Variable Cam Timing)
    • Delivers up to 168 hp
  • Chevy Equinox Standard Engine
    • 1.5L Turbo 4-Cylinder
    • Delivers up to 137 hp

As you can see, the base level Chevy Equinox simply can’t hold a candle to the standard engine on the Ford Escape.
