Comparison Review

Comfort
The Ford Edge offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Nissan Pathfinder, with comparable head- and legroom. The Nissan Pathfinder offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Ford Edge, offering the driver and front passenger a bit more room and comfort.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Ford Edge as you will with the Nissan Pathfinder, 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 Nissan Pathfinder. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Destination Charge for the Ford Edge is much higher than that for the Nissan Pathfinder.

Dimensions
The Ford Edge is a little narrower than the Nissan Pathfinder, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. If you go with the Ford Edge, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Nissan Pathfinder.

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

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

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

Utility
The Ford Edge has less seating than the Nissan Pathfinder, making the Nissan Pathfinder the better choice, if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The Ford Edge has less cargo space than the Nissan Pathfinder, 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 Nissan Pathfinder.
