2015 Ford Edge vs 2015 GMC Terrain
It’s what you put into it that makes it an SUV, but it’s what you get out of it that makes it a Ford. When it comes to the Edge, you can put in a lot, but you can also get a lot out. It’s for that reason that the Edge is quickly becoming one of the most popular SUVs not only in the Ford lineup, but in the market in general. It has the ability to measure up to the competition, and in most cases, is able to best the fiercest competitors. To see exactly what we mean, let’s take a closer look at the 2015 Ford Edge vs 2015 GMC Terrain.
When it comes to the engines offered beneath the hood, the Edge and Terrain share some similarities, but there are even more differences. Both of the SUVs come standard with a four-cylinder engine beneath the hood, and both offer at least one six-cylinder option. What sets the base engines apart is their abilities.
The Terrain comes standard with a 2.4-liter inline-four that is slightly larger than the one found in the nose of the Edge, but as the engine of the Ford offering comes equipped with EcoBoost technology, it’s comes turbocharged and is able to produce a great deal of extra power. Even with just four cylinders, the Edge is able to produce as much as 245 horsepower and 275 lb-ft of torque, which undoubtedly more impressive than the 182-horsepower rating that the base engine of the 2015 GMC Terrain is able to provide.
Benefits of the 2015 Ford Edge
As we mentioned earlier, you can get quite a bit into the Ford Edge. It has seats for five and a great deal of space to fit as many as five full-sized adults comfortably, and if you ever need to fold those seats down to accommodate cargo, converting the cabin is a breeze. The second-row seatback of the Edge comes split so that you can still utilize the back seat when the cabin is converted for storage, but the real benefit of the cargo hold comes when the seat is fully collapsed. When in the down position, the Edge is able to fit as much as 73.4 cubic feet of cargo. For comparison, at its largest, the Terrain only fits 63.9 cubic feet, which gives you about 10 less cubic feet to work with—that’s roughly the space of the average trunk.
You’ll notice that the price of the Edge is slightly higher than that of the Terrain, but when you take the increased capabilities of the midsize Ford offering into consideration, it’s clear to see exactly why that is. When you consider the fact that power outputs are higher, space is more readily available and efficiency is standard across all models of the redesigned SUV, the slight increase in base price is definitely justified.
