1. Chevy Equinox vs Jeep Cherokee vs Ford Escape

SUV buyers encountered a competitive market in 2017. While there's not a terrible choice of the bunch, the experts here at Pat McGrath Chevyland have our favorites. We've narrowed down the best choices to three and found Jeep Cherokee and Chevy Equinox have distinct advantages over our third favorite?the Ford Escape.

Escape owners have consistently been disappointed by the SUV's four cylinder engine while Cherokee and Equinox buyers AT LEAST have the option of upgrading to the more powerful V6.

If acceleration, power, torque, horsepower and towing capacity are your selling point?don't make the mistake of going with an underpowered SUV like the Ford Escape. Make the right choice?Jeep Cherokee or Chevy Equinox.
