2019 Ford Escape vs 2019 Chevrolet Equinox near Antioch, IL

2019 Chevrolet Equinox

2019 Ford Escape pictured above left with available options.

These days, SUVs offer tons of different options designed to give you the very best driving experience possible. It all can be a bit overwhelming, especially in the crowded compact SUV segment. At Gillespie Ford, we’re big fans of everything the 2019 Ford Escape has to offer, so to put it into context, we’re stacking it up against one of its competitors, the 2019 Chevrolet Equinox. We think you’ll see that when it comes to capacity, capability, and interior features, the Escape is hard to beat!

Capacity

When weighing the merits of an SUV, not much is more important than capacity. The Ford Escape makes a strong impression in this department, providing a robust 34 cubic ft. of cargo space even with the rear seats up. However, fold that 60/40 split second row entirely down and you’ll unveil a massive 68 cubic ft. of total storage room, ready to handle everything from camping equipment to home improvement supplies! Unfortunately, the Chevrolet Equinox can’t quite measure up, offering only 63.9 cubic ft. of total cargo space and forcing you to leave a few items behind for a second trip. The Escape also provides a spacious experience when you’re transporting friends and family, giving your backseat passengers a generous 55.2 inches of hiproom and allowing you and your co-pilot to stretch out with 43.1 inches of legroom in front. The Equinox again comes up short here, with only 51.7 inches of second-row hiproom and 40.9 inches of front legroom.

Interior

The Escape continues to dominate elsewhere in the cabin, as it’s equipped with features that the Equinox simply doesn’t offer. For example, if you’re keeping an eye on your mileage and measuring the distance traveled on your latest family adventure, you’ll be glad to have the standard trip computer that’s integrated into the display behind your steering wheel, data that the Chevrolet Equinox can’t provide. The Escape also offers intermittent windshield wipers that are extremely handy when the weather gets rough, allowing you to set the ideal frequency. And backing you up in those tricky driving conditions is Brake Assist, which detects the amount of force with which you hit the brakes and will back you up with additional stopping power if need be. Sadly, the Equinox isn’t equipped with either of these indispensable amenities.

Capability

Rounding out the 2019 Escape’s dominant showing is the equipment that bolsters its capability. Since it’s such a multi-purpose vehicle, the Escape is equipped with performance tires that will tackle pavement and trails alike with gusto, a crucial performance component that you won’t find on the Chevrolet Equinox. The Ford Escape’s steel wheels pair powerfully with your tires, providing a durable and resilient foundation for even the most taxing travels. In the Equinox, you’ll have to make do with aluminum. If you’re looking for the vehicle that’s prepared to handle whatever you throw at it, the choice is clear!

We’ve carefully compared the 2019 Ford Escape vs 2019 Chevrolet Equinox near Antioch, IL, and are thrilled to report that the Escape comes out on top! But you don’t have to take our word for it — check our business hours and plan your trip to Gillespie Ford today!

My wife and I walked in today to see what Gillespie has to offer for cars on a new Fusion. We were greeted by the sales person Lee, he extended his advanced customer service assistance immediately, which is very important as a form of aknowledgment every customer should receive👍. He was incredibly helpful, kind, and patient during our time at the dealership. We later met with the manager Nate, he was was fantastic, very knowledgeable and not at all pushy neither was Lee. He showed us many different options and really helped us pick out the perfect option and a great deal as well. The entire process was so easy and pressure free. In conclusion, if it weren’t for Lee and Nate today, my wife and I probably would have walked out of the dealership today without purchasing any car. Thank you guys!

First time dealing with Gillespie. Justin was our sales rep and what a great guy to deal. Not pushy like a typical salesman would be. Did whatever he could to make the deal happen. Had some issues with the car (minor). Justin took care of it all via service. Dennis there was upfront and kept us in the loop every step of the way. Chris in finance was absolutely fantastic to deal with. I always dread sitting in the finance office, but he moved through quick and got us out. Both Justin and Chris stayed late on a Saturday to get the paperwork and deal done. Will definitely return in the future. Thanks guys.
