Price and performance play substantial roles in helping Cocoa Beach drivers decide which SUV is right for their families. But, those aren’t the only important factors to consider. You and your passengers want a comfortable cabin, whether you’re running errands around Melbourne or hitting the road for a weekend drive. Inside either SUV, you’ll find features like brand-specific infotainment systems, color touchscreen displays, and 2nd-row sliding seats with a 60/40 split function.
However, when you look closer, you’ll find that the Equinox offers more advanced features for the lower price-tag. Compare some of their feature highlights below to see which SUV better meets your needs:

2020 Ford Escape Feature Highlights:
It’s worth noting that the Ford Escape comes standard with Ford SYNC®, but gets Ford SYNC® 3 on higher trim levels. The Chevrolet Equinox comes standard with its highest infotainment system, which gives you access to features like voice recognition, Apple CarPlay®, Android Auto™, and more right off the bat. To obtain those features for the Ford Escape, you’ll need to upgrade to at least the SE trim, which is more expensive.
When you compare the Ford Escape vs. Chevy Equinox, the latter stands out as a better value for Viera families. Not only is it more affordable, but it directly competes with and bests the Ford Escape in many categories. Ready to get behind the wheel of a Chevy Equinox L or Chevy Equinox Premier?
