2018 Ford Escape

Everything You Need to Do Everything You Want

Have you ever wondered what it’s like to have it all? The next-generation 2018 Chevrolet Equinox was designed with your needs and wants in mind featuring standard front heated seats and a remote vehicle starter system to help take the chill off Canadian winters. From style and technology to performance and safety, this versatile crossover is the complete package.


Performance

The 2018 Chevrolet Equinox is available with 3 engine choices. A turbocharged 1.5L is the standard engine while a 2.0L turbocharged engine replaces the V6 and it is being offered with a new 9-speed automatic transmission. The 3rd engine choice is a diesel 1.6L that produces 236 lb-ft of torque but can also return up to 5.7L/100km of fuel efficiency. All 3 engines will have Auto Start/Stop technology along with an available switchable all-wheel-drive system.

The Ford Escape is also available with 3 engine choices but none of the engines can outperform the Equinox for fuel efficiency whether it be with front-wheel-drive or four-wheel-drive. The Ford Escape is also lacking a transmission with more than 6 gears on any of the engine options.


Features

Heated seats, backup camera, keyless entry, and remote start are now all standard features on the 2018 Equinox. In addition to the usual optional features like navigation, leather upholstery, and climate control, the Equinox is now available with a new 360 degree camera system that allows the driver to see every corner of the vehicle when parking. For the first time it is also available with a large panoramic sunroof, LED headlights, ventilated seats and a host of safety features that alert the driver to hazards on the road and in some cases try to prevent an accident.

The Ford Escape is available with a lot of the same features as the Chevrolet Equinox however majority of them are not standard on the Escape. For example, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are only available on higher trim models and convenience features such as remote start & push button start are also optional and not standard.

“Chevy has vastly improved the Equinox with an attractive exterior wrapped around an inviting, easy-to-use interior on a tight, smooth-riding, lithe-handling chassis.”

– Frank Markus, Motor Trend

Safety

Protecting your family is usually the number one concern for buyers of new vehicles which is why both vehicles come with a host of safety features. The 2018 Chevrolet Equinox comes standard with 6 airbags, rear vision camera, high strength steel “safety cage” and OnStar to automatically call you or send first responders to your location in the event of an accident. However the Equinox is also available with features that will try to prevent an accident from happening in the first place. Some of these features are Forward Collision Alert with Low-speed Automatic Braking, Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning, and Rear Cross Traffic Alert.

The Ford Escape is also well equipped when it comes to safety with 7 standard airbags, a rear vision camera, and an emergency brake assist system as standard. Upgrading to a higher trim Ford Escape adds the same optional features as on the 2018 Chevrolet Equinox.
