When you think of Ford, you often think durability, capability, and innovation. Ford’s lineup of crossovers and SUVs is certainly impressive, and each model embodies what the Ford brand is all about to a T. If you find yourself stuck deciding between the Ford Escape and the Ford Edge, let us be of service! While we love these models equally, we’ll highlight some of the similarities and differences to help you make the perfect choice.


Although the Escape is a compact SUV and the Edge is a midsize crossover SUV, both models offer three engine choices that are sure to impress. The Ford Edge, however, has the upper hand when it comes to power with its 2.7L EcoBoost® twin-turbo V6 engine that renders a mighty 315 horsepower. The highest-output powertrain of the Escape is the 2.0L EcoBoost® twin-scroll four cylinder, which achieves a strong 245 horsepower. Transmission wise, the Edge and Escape equip a six-speed automatic with SelectShift® technology; the Ford Edge ups the ante by integrating steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters that let you enjoy the best of both worlds. The Edge and Escape feature a maximum towing capacity of 3,500 lb when properly equipped with the Class II Tow Package.


Technology is a huge aspect of vehicles these days, and these Ford models are pretty neck-and-neck in this category. In the base trims, you’ll have access to Bluetooth®, which lets you stream music and make or take a phone call hands-free, a USB port, and a rearview camera. Top models feature SYNC® 3 technology, which comprises functions like smartphone integration via Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ and available navigation. FordPass™ is an additional amenity that the 2018 Edge and 2018 Escape offer. With this app, you’ll be able to find parking, compare fuel prices, schedule service, and so much more right from the palm of your hand.


Ford understands what customers look for most, which is why each Ford car, truck, and SUV is stocked with top-of-the-line safety features. These two vehicles boast optional lane keep assist, adaptive cruise control, and a blind spot monitor to provide assistance while on the road. The Edge has a slight advantage by supplying an available 180-degree camera and inflatable rear seat belts. However, it's important to note that the Ford Edge and the Ford Escape received a 5-star overall crash test rating by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). Regardless of which vehicle you opt for, you'll have the utmost peace of mind with the advanced innovation implemented in each model.

If you’re in the market for an SUV, don’t overlook these two exceptional vehicles. Our Ford dealership in Columbus has both the 2018 Ford Edge and the 2018 Ford Escape on our sales lot awaiting your test drive. Come by today to experience which one best suits you and your needs!
