2015 Chevy Equinox vs 2015 Ford Edge
There's plenty of competition when it comes to sport utility vehicles. For families looking for versatile driving options or just a little more pizzazz than a minivan, these stylish and sturdy people haulers are an excellent choice. In our comparison of the 2015 Chevy Equinox vs 2015 Ford Edge we are going to look at some of the highest trim options in two-wheel drive mode to offer a feel for which of these excellent vehicles might fit best into your life and budget.
The 2015 Ford Edge takes the lead when it comes to engine power, but the 2015 Chevy Equinox has an edge in mileage and offers other financial advantages. The Edge's 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine produces 245 horsepower and 275 pound-feet of torque while the 2.4-liter four-cylinder on the 2015 Chevy Equinox only offers 182 horsepower and 172 pound-feet of torque. That's a big difference, but depending on driving needs, it may not be a significant one. The Equinox also gets a couple miles more per gallon than the Edge and runs off basic unleaded gasoline, while the Edge requires premium gasoline. Buyers can also upgrade to a 3.6-liter V6 engine in the 2015 Chevy Equinox that produces 301 horsepower and 272 pound-feet of torque. However, that upgrade will drop the vehicle's fuel efficiency.
OnStar and the 2015 Chevy Equinox
Even a basic 2015 Chevy Equinox comes well equipped with technology options that are not available on any trim level of the 2015 Ford Edge. The Chevy Equinox comes with a seven-inch Chevy MyLink touchscreen and Bluetooth connectivity, as well as available OnStar safety functions like automatic crash response, crisis assistance, and remote door unlock and horn or light activation. Some trims of this SUV are even capable of becoming a 4G WiFi hotspot thanks to this OnStar connectivity. The 2015 Ford Edge is outfitted with the MyFord Touch system, but does not have WiFi capabilities.
The 2015 Ford Edge is slightly larger than the 2015 Chevy Equinox, which can be good for passengers but can be a challenge when trying to maneuver into tight parking spaces or in city traffic. In the end, when choosing between the 2015 Chevy Equinox vs 2015 Ford Edge, power, mileage, technology, and even parking ease should play a part. The eventual choice between them comes down to personal budget and space needs.
