The 2014 Ford Escape vs. The 2014 Chevy Equinox

The crossover class is making waves in the automotive industry, combining the capabilities of sport utility vehicles with the efficiency and handling of sedans. Residents in the Bradley area searching for the ideal crossover might have a tough time choosing between the 2014 Ford Escape and the 2014 Chevy Equinox, as they are two very popular vehicles in this segment. The new Chevy Equinox is definitely a high-quality crossover, but it just doesn’t stack up when compared with the new Ford Escape, for sale at Terry’s Ford in Peotone.


  • Innovative Safety Features: When parking the 2014 Ford Escape, available sensors positioned in the front and the rear of the vehicle helps warn drivers about possible obstacles, pedestrians, or other vehicles in the vicinity. When pulling out of a parking spot, the optional cross-path warning system uses sensors to alert the driver of vehicles approaching from the side. The 2014 Chevy Equinox does not offer parking aid sensors or a cross-path warning system.
  • Comfortable Ride: No matter how bumpy a road may be, the 2014 Ford Escape has you covered thanks to standard gas-charged front and rear shock absorbers. These are ideal for uneven road conditions, as they provide more control. A high minimum road clearance of 7.9 inches also allows for additional off-road capability. The 2014 Chevy Equinox does not have gas-charged shocks and is an inch lower to the ground at 6.9 inches.
  • Convenience for all Occupants: Standard dual zone air conditioning allows the driver and passengers of the 2014 Ford Escape to choose two completely different temperatures. Speed-sensitive wipers that adjust automatically are also standard for the new Escape. The new Chevy Equinox doesn't feature dual zone air conditioning or speed-sensitive wipers.
