The Ford EcoSport vs the Chevrolet Equinox: The Battle of the Small Adventure-Ready SUVs

Searching for an ideal in-city driver around the Vauxhall, NJ area? Maplecrest Ford Lincoln is here to lend a helping hand with your car-shopping process. If impressive performance, ample interior niceties, and cutting-edge tech are all on your short list for your future model -- consider the Ford EcoSport. It's a charming compact five-seater that can easily handle runs to the grocery store, office, or even campsite for a weekend getaway. Check out how this impressive little Ford SUV handles itself when it goes toe to toe with a close competitor, the Chevrolet Equinox through our brief comparison below.

Performance and Capabilities

Compact in size, but impressive with its capabilities and stout performance, the Ford EcoSport is offered with two powertrain options. The first of which is a 1.0-lier EcoBoost engine that generates enough power to get you around town without costing you your savings at the fuel pump. Improved performance can be had with the optional 2.0-liter Ti-VCT engine. With direct-injection power, this smart SUV can charge forward with assurance. Looking for improved control during the rough winter months? The model offers Intelligent 4WD, the automaker's Four-Wheel-Drive system that will make your seasonal commutes that much easier.

The Chevrolet Equinox also offers two engine types to select from. Its base 1.5-liter turbocharged powerplant makes an impressive amount of horsepower while retaining sensible fuel-sipping abilities. The optional 2.0-liter turbocharged engine generates ample horsepower and torque and is available with Switchable All-Wheel-Drive for optimal grip on slick road surfaces.

Interior Features

The Ford EcoSport is a practical item-mover with its ample 50 cubic feet of cargo space to configure to your liking. Whether you're moving recreational gear like golf bags, soccer equipment, or camping supplies -- the EcoSport can transport it all with ease. The second-row can also be left upright to accommodate three passengers while offering up a stout 20.9 cubic feet behind it for groceries and miscellaneous items you regularly tote around. The EcoSport allows you to settle into an area that's ben crafted to enhance your time spent on the go. The model features ActiveX seating with cloth inserts while the EcoSport Titanium bolsters the cabin look and feel with perforated leather-trimmed upholstery.

Inside the Chevrolet Equinox, drivers will find that they are extended a full range of creature comforts and versatile features to take advantage of. In terms of space, the Equinox sports 63.9 cubic feet of cargo-moving capability while also showcasing 60/40 split-folding rear seats. The model can be had with leather-appointed heated front seats, a heated first- and second-row, and driver-memory functionality.



The Ford EcoSport offers Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, a pair of ultra-convenient connectivity features that are ideal for ensuring you have the ability to stay in tune with your desired audio content while on the go.

Likewise, the Chevrolet Equinox also offers these same connectivity features to drivers on its second-tier Chevrolet Equinox LS model along with the convenient Teen Driver tech package, a system that's perfect for promoting safe and secure travel to young drivers.
