The approach to the exterior appearance is one of the biggest differences when comparing the 2022 Ford Bronco Sport vs 2022 Chevrolet Equinox. The Equinox has a sleek and car-like aesthetic that does not differ greatly from the many other crossovers that are available. The Bronco Sport, on the other hand, has a much more rugged and aggressive appearance that really sets it apart from the competition. The Ford model is also a smaller vehicle. It has a 105.1-inch wheelbase and 7.8-inch ground clearance, and it measures 172.7 inches, which is approximately 14.4 feet. The Equinox, on the other hand, has 107.3-inch wheelbase and a 7.6-inch ground clearance, and it measures 183.1 inches—more than 15 feet. In both cases, LED headlamps and 17-inch alloy wheels are standard, and 18-inch wheels are available. Another notable difference is that while the Equinox has a traditional liftgate, the Bronco Sport has a rear liftgate with a flip-up window with integrated lighting.
