Comparison Review

Comfort
The Ford Edge offers a bit more room for passengers in the back seat than the GMC Acadia. The Ford Edge will be popular with taller drivers and passengers in the front seat, due to its greater front head- and legroom than the GMC Acadia.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Ford Edge as you will with the GMC Acadia, 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). When looking only at MSRP, the Ford Edge will have less of an impact on your bank account than the GMC Acadia. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Ford Edge will cost more in terms of transportation costs than the GMC Acadia.

Dimensions
The Ford Edge is about the same width as the GMC Acadia. The Ford Edge is slightly shorter than the GMC Acadia, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the Ford Edge transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the GMC Acadia.

Handling
The Ford Edge has the same turning radius as the GMC Acadia, 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 GMC Acadia, since they have about the same towing capacity. The Ford Edge has a little less horsepower than the GMC Acadia.

Utility
The Ford Edge has less seating than the GMC Acadia, making the GMC Acadia the better choice, if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The Ford Edge has less cargo space than the GMC Acadia, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

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