2018 Ford Explorer vs. 2018 Chevrolet Traverse

Unlike the Chevy Traverse, the Ford Explorer offers a 365-hp 3.5L V6 engine, giving you greater performance on Myrtle Beach roads. The Explorer also has the advantage of available Ford Sync 3, which Edmunds calls “one of the easiest touchscreen tech interfaces to use.” Options like leather with quilted seats and a Sony audio system are also Explorer exclusives.

2018 Ford Escape vs. 2018 Chevrolet Equinox

The base Ford Escape is offered with a parking aid, making it easier to snag a space in Florence. This feature is only available on the Equinox’s higher trims. Behind the Escape’s rear seats, you’ll find 34 cubic feet of cargo space vs. the Equinox’s 29.9. The Escape is also a stronger tower; both SUVs tow 1,500 pounds, but, properly equipped, the base Escape can manage up to 3,500 pounds.

2018 Ford Fusion vs. 2018 Chevrolet Malibu

The Ford Fusion is powered by a 175-hp 2.5L 4-cylinder engine, while the Chevy Malibu gets a weaker 160-hp 1.5L 4-cylinder. The differences don’t end with performance. Unlike the Malibu, the Fusion comes standard with Bluetooth connectivity, letting you place/receive calls on the go. The trunk is larger, too.
