Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Kia Telluride than in the Ford Edge, due to its greater head- and legroom. 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 Kia Telluride.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Ford Edge as you will with the Kia Telluride, 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). Whether you pick the Ford Edge or the Kia Telluride, it's going to cost you about the same. 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 Kia Telluride have similar Destination Charges.

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

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

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the Kia Telluride is clearly the choice over the Ford Edge for pulling heavy loads. The Ford Edge has a little less horsepower than the Kia Telluride.

Powertrain
With somewhat higher torque, the Ford Edge transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the Kia Telluride.

Utility
Soccer Moms beware - the Ford Edge seats a lot fewer people than the Kia Telluride. The Ford Edge has less cargo space than the Kia Telluride, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Ford Edge is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Kia Telluride.
