2021 Ford Escape vs. Chevy Equinox | Orlando, FL

2021 Ford Escape vs. Chevy Equinox | Tropical Ford | Orlando, FL 

Want a safe, efficient SUV you can drive around Orlando, Florida? Check out the 2021 Ford Escape at Tropical Ford. This family-friendly Ford compact SUV is excellent for commutes and conserving gas around town - much more than the 2021 Chevrolet Equinox. Here's a look at how these two models compare.

Eco-friendly electric power

Want to protect the environment while saving money? Drive the Ford Escape.

 It offers efficient hybrid versions of its SE Sport and Titanium trims, each averaging an impressive 44 mpg during in-city driving.* Using a 2.5-liter gas engine paired to an 88 kW electric motor and regulated by an eCVT,  the Ford Escape Hybrid averages far better fuel economy rates than the Chevy Equinox does.

To drive on pure electric power for a limited distance, check out the Ford Escape PHEV that can be recharged in your garage overnight. Chevrolet doesn't offer any hybrid versions of the Equinox. 

A spacious ride for families

When riding with your family, you need as much space as you can get in your SUV. The Escape offers more cargo space behind the second row of seats, so there's plenty of room for your sports equipment or furniture. Plus, the Escape is taller and longer than the Equinox, giving tall passengers more headroom and legroom.

Even if you drive the hybrid Escape - which typically would have a reduced cabin size to accommodate the battery-there's still lots of room to stretch out. That's because the 2021 Escape Hybrid has a battery that's over 67 percent smaller than the old Escape Hybrid battery - plus it's housed below the floor of the second-row seats so it doesn't impede on passenger space.

The latest driving technology

If you want high-tech tools at your fingertips while you drive in Orlando, opt for the 2021 Ford Escape

This family-oriented SUV provides many standard safety tools - such as blind-spot warning and rear cross-traffic alert - which cost extra on the Equinox.  And to make parking in crowded downtown Orlando much easier, the Escape has available automated parking technology that you won't find at all on the Chevy SUV.

For a modern-looking SUV with a refreshed look for 2021, drive in style in the 2021 Ford Escape. You can find it in stock now at Tropical Ford, ready for a test drive.
