When considering a new vehicle, it pays to check out the Ford family lineup. With models like the Escape and Edge to choose from, there's something for everyone. At Greenwood Ford, we've put together this comparison between the Ford Escape vs. Ford Edge for our friends and neighbors near and around Glasgow, Hopkinsville, Russellville, and Bowling Green, KY.

Ford Escape vs. Ford Edge: Power & Performance

The Ford Escape comes equipped with a 1.5L EcoBoost® Ti-VCT GTDI I-3 engine that's been paired with an 8-speed automatic transmission. Its power outputs max out at 181 horsepower and 190 lb-ft of torque. When properly equipped, it reaches a towing capacity maximum of 2,000 pounds. Two additional features are the Curve Control, which slows your vehicle down when entering into a curve, and Post-Collision Braking, which ensures your vehicle stops moving after a collision.

The Ford Edge comes equipped with a twin-scroll 2.0L EcoBoost™ I-4 turbocharged, direct-injection engine that's been paired with an 8-speed automatic transmission. Regarding its power outputs, the Edge generates up to 250 horsepower and 280 lb-ft of torque. Where it falls just shy of the Escape in towing, it makes up for that in additional features, including Intelligent All-Wheel Drive (AWD) and AdvanceTrac® with Roll Stability Control™.

Ford Escape vs. Ford Edge: Interior Dimensions

You'll want the generous amount of space both of these Ford models provide you and your passengers when taking the long way round or just a quick trip to the city. Everyone is more than welcome to stretch out their legs for maximum comfort, along with newly established freedom of movement within the cabin. Provided here are the hard numbers to show you just what to expect in both vehicles…

Ford Escape

  • Headroom (without options): 40 inches/39.3 inches
  • Legroom (2nd-row Hybrid/Plug-In Hybrid): 42.4 inches/40.7 inches/38.9 inches
  • Shoulder room: 57.6 inches/56 inches
  • Hip room: 55.2 inches/53.3 inches

Ford Edge

  • Headroom (Hard Top): 40.2 inches/40.3 inches
  • Legroom: 42.6 inches/40.6 inches
  • Shoulder room: 60.3 inches/60.5 inches
  • Hip room: 55.9 inches/57.5 inches

As you can see, these vehicles offer more than enough space for their passengers, and while one model might lead in certain sections, it doesn't take away from their universal spaciousness. No matter which vehicle you choose to go with, you'll have a comfortable experience.

Ford Escape vs. Ford Edge: Infotainment

This section is where the two vehicles really differentiate themselves. The Ford Escape has what we'd call a basic infotainment package of SYNC®, FordPass™ Connect with 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot, and AM/FM Stereo with six speakers. While not much, it is enough to keep you connected through the SYNC® and FordPass®.

However, the Ford Edge is more robust with its features. It comes equipped with SYNC® 4A, FordPass™ Connect 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot, AM/FM Stereo with six speakers, audio input jack, and a trial subscription to SiriusXM®. This list of robust features makes it a sure choice for those drivers who like to stay well-connected while out on the road.
