The 2021 Chevrolet Equinox and 2020 Ford Edge aren't necessarily top competition for each other, since they don't always compete for the same buyers. The Chevy Equinox is a compact SUV, while the Ford Edge is mid-size, meaning that each may hold some advantages over the other, depending on what you're looking for in a new SUV.

Still, many SUV buyers will shop the Ford Edge and Chevy Equinox, as the interior space and versatility of these models are not too far off one another. In this comparison article, we'll try to give you a sense of which may be the better vehicle for you, based on your unique preferences.

The team at Henna Chevrolet may favor the 2021 Chevy Equinox over the 2020 Ford Edge, but we'll let you be the judge following this comparison review and your own vehicle research.

We'll point out some of the key differences between these sport-utes, including pricing, fuel efficiency, features, curb weight and more. Then, it will be up to you to determine which vehicle better suits your lifestyle and budget!

Comparing Chevrolet's Equinox to the Ford Edge

When comparing the 2021 Chevrolet Equinox to other SUV options like the 2020 Ford Edge, one thing that stands out immediately is the Chevy's highly affordable pricing. The new Equinox starts at just $23,800 and is one of the most competitively priced models in its class, let alone compared to a larger vehicle like the Ford Edge.

The 2020 Ford Edge mid-size SUV does hold a size advantage over the 2021 Chevy Equinox compact SUV, but many drivers and families may find they prefer the more agile Equinox over the bulkier Ford. With its shorter wheelbase, smaller turning diameter and lighter weight, this Chevy SUV outhandles the Ford Edge with ease!

Tipping the scales at just 3,274 pounds in base trim, the 2021 Equinox is a featherweight compared to the much heavier Ford Edge. At nearly 4,000 pounds, the Edge feels much bulkier going down the road, and it's far less fuel-efficient, too.

In standard trim with front-wheel drive, the 2021 Chevrolet Equinox returns an impressive EPA-estimated fuel economy rating of 26 city and 31 highway mpg. The best that the bigger Ford Edge can muster is an EPA-estimated 21 city and 29 highway mpg rating. Which would you prefer while navigating Austin, Texas, area roads?

Looking at the cabins of these two sport utility vehicles, we see that the Ford Edge is marginally larger inside than the Chevy Equinox. But is a little bit more space worth the heavy fuel economy penalty you take when driving the bulkier Ford? We don't think so!

Both of these SUVs come standard with turbocharged powertrains that deliver ample power for hauling your crew and gear. While the larger Ford Edge is more powerful, it also has a lot more weight to move around, so any difference in engine output likely won't be an issue out on the road with the sporty and responsive Equinox!
