Make no mistake about it; there are ways in which the 2019 Equinox holds an upper hand over the 2019 Escape. For example, with a built-in Wi-Fi hotspot and greater fuel economy (up to 39 highway miles per gallon) to speak of, you might find the 2019 Equinox as a more appealing model in these regards. However, there’s no debate about which vehicle is safer and better-equipped to handle any oncoming terrain. The 2019 Escape offers greater cargo volume, intelligent all-wheel drive, and a wide-ranging list of driver assistance features that can keep you secure in ways that the 2019 Equinox can’t. Some of these include:

  • BLIS® (Blind Spot Information System)
  • Cross-Traffic Alert
  • Enhanced Active Park Assist
  • Adaptive Cruise Control
  • Forward Collision Warning w/ Brake Support
  • Lane-Keeping System
  • Many more!
