2016 Ford Edge vs. 2017 Ford Escape Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Ford Edge than in the Ford Escape. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Ford Edge and the Ford Escape.

Convenience
The Ford Edge requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Ford Escape, making it more convenient to drive.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). The Ford Edge will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Ford Escape, which has a much lower MSRP. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. Both the Ford Edge and the Ford Escape have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Ford Edge is much wider than the Ford Escape, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the Ford Edge, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Ford Escape.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the Ford Edge does a much better job of transmitting its engine's horsepower to its wheels than the Ford Escape.

Performance
If you've got something you need to pull, the Ford Edge will do just as well as the Ford Escape, since they have about the same towing capacity. The Ford Edge has a little more horsepower than the Ford Escape.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Ford Edge and the Ford Escape. The Ford Edge has a roomier cargo area for putting your bags or other items than the Ford Escape.

Warranty
The Ford Edge comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Ford Escape.
