Small crossovers: 2024 Ford Escape vs 2024 Chevrolet Equinox near Catalina AZ
The 2024 Ford Escape available at ORO Ford and the 2024 Chevrolet Equinox are both popular small crossover SUVs with a starting MSRP under $30K. Ford offers six trim levels for you to consider: Escape Active, ST-Line, ST-Line Select, Platinum, ST-Line Elite and Plug-In Hybrid. Chevrolet offers four trim levels: LS, LT, RS and Premier. With the Equinox, front-wheel drive is standard and all-wheel drive is optional across the board. Ford offers the option as well but includes AWD with the upper trim levels. There is just one powertrain available for the Equinox—a six-speed automatic with a 175-hp turbo four-cylinder—and the base Ford setup has an eight-speed auto and 180-hp turbo three-cylinder.
The Equinox is configured as an economic vehicle within this space. That means that options are limited beyond the base configuration, and the top trim has an MSRP of just $33,195, which isn’t much beyond the base model. With the Escape, Ford caters to a wider audience. ST-Line Select models have 250-hp turbo four. At this point in the lineup, you also have the option of a hybrid powertrain that makes 192 hp but offers fantastic fuel performance, and at the top of the lineup is a PHEV that ups output to 210 hp while offering even better fuel performance and the option of all-electric driving.
