2015 Chevy Equinox vs 2015 Ford Escape
The Equinox is one of our favorite midsize crossovers. In what has quickly become one of the deepest classes in the industry, the Equinox has quickly risen to the top since its inception in 2005 and subsequent overhaul in 2010. It continues to improve upon itself, having many class-leading specifications through the years and even going so far as to be the first vehicle in the industry to offer a 4G LTE Wi-Fi Connection through OnStar built right into the vehicle. So we thought wed take a look at the Chevy crossover in comparison to a classmate that has been around a few years longer, and can perhaps claim to be a little more famous, the 2015 Chevy Equinox vs 2015 Ford Escape.
Technology in the Chevy Equinox
As you can tell by taking a look at the table above, the two midsize crossovers are fairly similar in nearly every way, the only exception being the much larger fuel tank of the Chevy Equinox. Sure, the Equinox gets the nod in each category, but the advantages are so small that its nothing to brag about. But the one area that the Ford Escape truly cant hang with our crossover is in the technology department, whether the Equinox blows it out of the water.
Namely, as we mentioned, the availability of a 4G LTE Wi-Fi connection through OnStar. The LTE connection allows the occupants of the vehicle, or those standing nearby, to stay connected to the outside world even if you take your Equinox deep into the middle of the woods. Check your Facebook, watch your Netflix, stay connected. Not to mention the fact that the Equinox also has a 7 color touchscreen display audio system front and center that is both easy to use and convenient. In our eyes, the 2015 Chevy Equinox wins by a longshot.
