Differences Between Ford Escape and Ford Edge
Two of the most popular SUVs in the Ford lineup are the Escape and the Edge, as they are not only able to deliver an impressive level of space, style and performance, but boast price tags that make them two of the most affordable crossovers, not only in the Ford family, but in the market in general. If you are having a difficult time determining which of the vehicles is better for you, allow us to explain the differences between the Ford Escape and Ford Edge.
The most noticeable difference between the pair of SUVs is their size. The Ford Escape is classified as a compact utility vehicle, while the midsize Edge is in the next class up. So, if you are looking for more space in the back, the Edge is your best bet. That is not to say that the Escape isn’t spacious, however. It offers up 34.3 cubic feet of space behind the second row of seats, which is double the space of a standard trunk.
Both the Escape and the Edge have space for five passengers, but when the second row seat is collapsed to make space for storage, it’s clear to see where the pair of SUVs differ. When the back seat of the Ford Escape is folded down, there is space for 67.8 cubic feet of cargo. It is a significant amount of space, but not quite as much as the 2015 Ford Edge, which is able to accommodate as much as 73.4 cubic feet.
Another one of the similarities between the Escape and the Ford Edge has all to do with the engines found in their noses. As Ford has been making a push for higher fuel economy, both of the SUVs come standard with a four-cylinder EcoBoost engine, which comes turbocharged, allowing them to produce some serious outputs. When equipped with the 2.0-liter engines, both vehicles are able to produce 240 horsepower, and are able to achieve highway fuel economy ratings of 30 mpg, which is much higher than most other SUVs.
