FEATURES

Is it possible to get increased visibility while using less energy? With the HID Headlights that come standard on the 2021 Chevrolet Equinox6, the answer is yes. On the 2021 Ford Escape, those brilliant, energy-efficient HID headlights are a pricey add-on.

The refinement and luxury of leather seating is a standard feature in the 2021 Chevrolet Equinox7, but it's only available as an add-on option in the 2021 Ford Escape8.
