In terms of towing capacity, the Toyota Highlander Hybrid is clearly the choice over the Ford Edge for pulling heavy loads. In terms of horsepower, it's a virtual tie between the Ford Edge and the Toyota Highlander Hybrid.

Powertrain
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 Toyota Highlander Hybrid.

Utility
