Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Ford Edge than in the Chevrolet Equinox, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Ford Edge will be a hit with tall drivers and their front seat passengers, since it has greater front head- and legroom than the Chevrolet Equinox.

Convenience
The Ford Edge requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Chevrolet Equinox, 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). Clearly, the Chevrolet Equinox is a better financial choice over the Ford Edge, when considering MSRP. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. In this case, the Chevrolet Equinox will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Ford Edge.

Dimensions
Since the Chevrolet Equinox is much slimmer than the Ford Edge, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. The Chevrolet Equinox is slightly shorter than the Ford Edge, which may make it easier to park.

Handling
The Chevrolet Equinox has a significantly larger turning radius than the Ford Edge, making it much more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Chevrolet Equinox has a lot less horsepower than the Ford Edge.

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

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Chevrolet Equinox and the Ford Edge. The Chevrolet Equinox has less cargo space than the Ford Edge, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.
