Here at Brandon Ford in Tampa, FL, we’ve found that there are two features people look for in a new SUV above anything else – power and interior space. And, as you can see in the table above, these are two areas in which the 2018 Ford Explorer truly shines – making the 2018 Chevrolet Equinox pale in comparison.
In terms of power, the standard engine of the new Ford Explorer lineup offers 290 horsepower and 255 pound-feet of torque, while its most powerful engine offers 365 horsepower and 350 pound-feet of torque. Conversely, the standard engine of the new Chevrolet Equinox lineup offers only 170 horsepower and 203 pound-feet of torque, while its most powerful engine offers only 252 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque.
The 2018 Ford Explorer lineup also provides far more passenger and cargo space than the 2018 Chevy Equinox lineup. More specifically, the new Ford Explorer lineup provides 151.5 cubic-feet of total passenger space and 81.7 cubic-feet of total cargo space, whereas the new Chevy Equinox provides only 103.2 cubic-feet of total passenger space and 63.5 cubic-feet of total cargo space.
