2014 Ford Edge vs. 2015 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. The Ford Escape will be a hit with tall drivers and their front seat passengers, since it has greater front head- and legroom than the Ford Edge.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Ford Edge as you will with the Ford Escape, as they are both able to travel similar distances on a tank of gas.

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 is somewhat more expensive than the Ford Escape. 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. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Ford Edge, which is slightly longer than 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.

Handling
The Ford Edge has the same turning radius as the Ford Escape, so they both maneuver the same in and out of tight spots.

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. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries in the Ford Edge as you will in the Ford Escape.

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