The SUV is a quite popular auto type, and chief among them is the new Ford Escape. That being said, this Ford SUV has some solid competition in terms of safety, and our experts at Waconia Ford are here to give you a full safety feature comparison.
Comparison of Safety in the New Ford Escape, Jeep Compass, and Chevy Equinox
When it comes to safety the Ford Escape, Jeep Compass, and Chevy Equinox are certainly high-end performers, but which offers the most comprehensive safety tech package? Well, the Chevy Equinox certainly seems promising at first glance, with its standard offering of automatic emergency braking. However, the Chevy Equinox still fails to provide the kind of widespread safety drivers have come to expect. Features like the surround-view camera system, blind-spot monitors, and rear cross-traffic alerts are all barred to higher trim configurations.
What about the Jeep Compass? Well, the safety package of the Jeep Compass is great, but only if you’re willing to spend a pretty penny. No safety feature comes for free in the Jeep Compass, and while giving base models the option to upgrade is great, this offering just doesn’t go far enough. Should you spend the extra cash though, you’ll be able to take advantage of blind-spot monitors, automatic emergency braking, and more.
The Ford Escape blows the competition out of the water when it comes to safety tech. Each model comes with automatic emergency braking, active lane control, automatic high-beam headlights, and blind-spot monitors at no extra cost.
