Comparing the 2023 Chevy Equinox to the 2023 Ford Escape

Exterior and Interior

Both models can carry up to five passengers. Equinox occupants will appreciate supportive seats, power outlets, and active noise cancellation that contribute to a quieter, more connected, and more comfortable ride.


The Equinox's ace in the hole regarding performance is its fun-to-drive attitude. Handling the Equinox feels precise, comfortable, and stable, making it easy to hit the road confidently. The Equinox offers a 1.5-liter Turbocharged engine that yields up to 175 horsepower, 203 pound-feet of torque, and the power to tow up to 1,500 pounds.

Switchable AWD

This available feature grants the Equinox the ability to adapt to poor weather and roads with poor traction by engaging AWD when you need it most. Save fuel by traveling in FWD mode, then switch to AWD when needed to tackle snow and other less-than-ideal driving conditions.

Standard Safety Tech

The Equinox comes packed with driver-assist and safety features to help you and your loved ones stay secure when you're out and about. Automatic Emergency Braking, Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning, and a Forward Collision Alert are just a few of the standard features.

Comparing theĀ 2023 Chevy Equinox to the 2023 Hyundai Palisade


The base FWD Equinox engine can reach 26 city/31 highway miles per gallon. The Palisade's best efforts only yield up to 19 city/26 highway miles per gallon, making the Equinox the smarter choice if you're looking for an SUV that lets you go further with fewer gas stops along the way.


The starting price for the Equinox is considerably lower than that of the Palisade. With better fuel economy, a host of standard safety features, and a comfortable ride quality on its list of perks, the Equinox is an attractive pick for drivers looking to save.


The Equinox is just the right size. It's 183.1 inches long and 65.4 inches tall, making it shorter in length and height than the Palisade. The Equinox also has a tighter turning diameter, making driving easier on busy streets. You'll also easily sneak in and out of parking spots. Since the Palisade is geared towards larger families, it's larger and a bit more unwieldy than the Equinox.


The Equinox offers plenty of roomy and supportive seating for up to five passengers. The Palisade supports up to eight passengers, so it's likely to feel like too much car if you're looking for a vehicle that can keep up with your daily adventures.

Show Your Style

The Equinox offers two unique style options to drivers who want to make a statement. The Equinox Midnight Edition is the automotive epitome of tall, dark, and handsome, with jet-black perforated leather-appointed seating, a unique black grille, black aluminum wheels, and more. The Equinox Redline Edition is stylish, streetwise, and confident-looking with red-accented black wheels, black Chevy bowtie emblems, and more!

Exterior and Interior

The Equinox is considerably shorter lengthwise and height-wise than the Passport, making the Equinox easier to maneuver in and out of tight spaces and on busy streets. The Equinox and Passport can seat up to five occupants, but Equinox passengers in the front seats will enjoy a bit more headroom. The Passport's driver's seat is also set a bit too high.


Both models are available with AWD, so you'll find no trouble tackling rough terrain and harsh weather. However, the Equinox is the way to go if you're looking for the most fuel-efficient performance. Even AWD models can offer up to 24 city/30 highway miles per gallon, which outshines the Passport's estimated 19 city/24 highway miles per gallon.
