Side profile of a 2023 Chevrolet Equinox in action

The compact SUV segment is brimming with competitive models from a variety of manufacturers -- but even in this environment the 2023 Chevrolet Equinox proves itself admirably. It continues to remain the standout choice it has been since the day of the original Equinox release date.

Our Chevy dealer in Danville wanted to reaffirm this, so we pitted the 2023 Equinox against two of its staunchest competitors: the 2023 Toyota RAV4 and 2023 Ford Escape. After we ran the numbers and compared the Equinox specs and features to those of its two rivals, we confirmed what we've known all along: that the 2023 Equinox is still king of the hill.

Review our Equinox vs. RAV4 vs. Escape comparison below, then visit our showroom to take home this new Chevy SUV for yourself.

2023 Chevrolet EquinoxEngine Specs Reviewed

The 2023 Chevy Equinox has a competitive advantage where it counts: under the hood, which is home to a turbocharged 1.5-liter 4-cylinder engine that has no peer in this group. This fact becomes clear when you compare this powertrain to what's found in the other SUVs profiled here.

Thanks to its advanced turbo powertrain, the Equinox offers up to 203 pound-feet of torque at just 2,000 rpm. From the driver's seat, this translates to a rush of acceleration almost as soon as you depress the throttle. The non-turbocharged RAV4 engine, on the other hand, will feel much more labored as it works toward the 5,000 RPM range where it delivers peak torque. The 3-cylinder Escape isn't much better.

The best part of all this? Only the Chevy offers one year of scheduled maintenance to ensure that turbo Equinox engine is running its best.1 It's yet another reason to schedule an Equinoxtest-drive in Danville today.

2023 Chevrolet EquinoxSafety & Interior Features Compared

The 2023 Equinox puts the safety of its occupants first and foremost. To that end, every Equinox for sale in Danville comes standard with not just Chevy Safety Assist -- the comprehensive suite of active driver-assist features found in many new Chevy trucks and SUVs -- but also exclusive Teen Driver technology.

What is Teen Driver? Simple: a parental control technology that allows you to limit your newly licensed driver's access to certain Equinox features. As much as they'll want to, you can ensure your adolescent can't crank up the available Bose® Premium Audio System or disable certain safety equipment. Teen Driver is a potentially life-saving technology -- and one that's not found on the Escape or RAV4.
