Starting Price: $24,795 

Chevy loyalists will enjoy the two optional engines, including a diesel engine that has 252-horsepower as well as 39 miles per gallon. It is also capable of towing up to 3,500 pounds. You get all this and more at an attractive price tag of only $24,795.

Above Average: Two optional engines for Chevy loyalists looking for a compact SUV including a diesel that gets up to 39 mpg and a 252-horsepower. The turbocharged 4-cylinder engine can tow up to 3,500 pounds. 

Below Average: You have to step up to the top-line trim for active safety features and driver--assistance features like lane departure assist. Competitors offer these for thousands less. No manual transmission offered, either.  

Consensus: The 2019 Chevrolet Equinox is a compact SUV that offers comfort and competency. Along with an optional diesel engine that gets up to 39 mpg, it’s got a lot to offer.

Starting Price: $30,990

You also get plenty of benefits from the 2019 Ford Edge in Avondale. It is a sportier type of SUV with a roomy cabin. There is plenty of room for passengers to stretch their legs. Although the interior is a nice feature, it is not incredibly fuel efficient. For drivers looking to save money at the pump, there are other vehicles that cost far less.

Above Average: There’s a new sportier variant, the ST, that gives the 2019 Ford Edge a 335-horsepower engine. 

Below Average: Not very fuel-efficient and somewhat lower resale value when compared to a Jeep Grand Cherokee or the Subaru Outback.  

Consensus: The 2019 Ford Edge gets a revamp for 2019 that gives it both an enthusiast and practical appeal. With a roomy stylish cabin that comfortably seats 5 and styling that makes it stand out in a sea of sameness, it’s a good buy. 


The Chevrolet Equinox was updated in 2018 and got a slightly smaller but more upscale look. It is a compact crossover and it’s the only one in the segment that offers a highly efficient optional diesel engine.  

Apple CarPlay and Android Auto come standard at the base level and there are 3 different engines you can opt for, including the peppy 2.0-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder engine. In our drives, the smaller, 1.5-liter engine is more than sufficient. The 2.0-liter engine offers a whole lot more pep even chirping the tires off the line. Inside the 2019 Chevy Equinox, you can comfortably seat 5 people with plenty of space.

The interior space, however, is significantly smaller than the Honda CR-V even with the rear seats down and only offers 63.5 cubic feet. On the other hand, the 2019 Ford Edge gets ample interior space for five and an updated nose that makes it look a bit more, well edgy.

With its wide stance (which can make it tricky to parallel park or park in narrow spots), it is stable and aggressive looking on the street-particularly in the ST version.

The Ford Edge is the first vehicle in the Ford line-up to get the sportier ST variant and it includes a 335-horsepower 2.7-liter V6 engine which gives it 20 more horsepower than the 2018 Sport version.

All-wheel drive comes standard on both including the turbocharged 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine that makes 250 horsepower. Ford has added Amazon’s Alexa to the cabin and Android Auto and CarPlay now work with Waze in the new Ford Edge. 


Compact SUVs with a diverse range of engine options and some good optional equipment.  

Chevrolet Equinox Advantages 

If you need to tow, or are looking for a very efficient diesel engine, the 2019 Chevrolet Equinox is the right bet for you. 

Ford Edge Advantages

If you want something that speaks more to your inner auto and tech enthusiast, the 2019 Ford Edge is the right SUV for you. 

Final Recommendation 

The Chevrolet Equinox is our pick in this head-to-head with its fuel-efficient diesel and towing prowess. While the Ford Edge certainly takes the cake in the sportiness and tech arena, the price makes it a bit less appealing.
