2019 Ford Edge vs. 2019 Ford Escape

The 2019 Ford Escape and the 2019 Ford Edge both rank among our neighbors’ favorite SUVs, and it’s not hard to see why. Comparing the Ford Edge vs. Escape in depth, you’ll see that both offer energetic 4-cylinder engines, impressive cargo areas, a towing capacity of up to 3,500 pounds, and available AWD, too! It’s time to find out which five-passenger Ford SUV is right for you! The Cornerstone Auto has all the information you’ll need.

Ford Edge vs. Escape: Pricing

Which of these two Ford SUVs is right for your budget? Compare the starting MSRPs of their base and range-topping trims:

  • 2019 Ford Edge SE
    • $29,995 MSRP
  • 2019 Ford Edge ST
    • $42,355 MSRP
  • 2019 Ford Escape S
    • $24,105 MSRP
  • 2019 Ford Escape Titanium
    • $32,620 MSRP

The Bottom Line: Those with an eye for luxury might prefer the Ford Edge, which manages to pack a lot more into its top-level trim. However, since the Escape scored 3.5 points out of 5 in J.D. Power’s reliability assessment (compared to 3.0 out of 5 for the Edge), it might be the better investment for a value-conscious driver.

Ford Edge vs. Escape: Performance

What can you expect to find under the hood? There’s no denying that the Edge is a top-tier performer, with a real advantage over the compact Escape:

Ford Edge

  • Base Engine: 250-hp EcoBoost® 2.0-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder
    • V6 available as upgrade
  • Transmission: 8-speed automatic transmission
  • All-Wheel Drive: Available on base model with upgrade
  • Base Fuel Economy: 22 mpg city, 29 mpg highway

Ford Escape

  • Base Engine: 168-hp 2.5-liter 4-cylinder engine
    • Two engine upgrades available
  • Transmission: 6-speed automatic transmission with SelectShift®
  • All-Wheel Drive: Available on upgraded trims
  • Base Fuel Economy: 21 mpg city, 29 mpg highway

The Bottom Line: The Ford Edge looks to be the stronger option for performance-focused drivers, and in most respects, it certainly is! However, if you compare the compact Escape to other in-class rivals, you’ll see that its suspension and handling are superior for the class. Both are a lot of fun to drive on the streets near Plymouth.

Ford Edge vs. Escape: Interior Features & Cargo Capacity

Drivers comparing the Ford Edge vs. Escape should know that both offer Ford SYNC®, as well as traction control, daytime running lights, keyless entry, and a whole host of other useful features. However, the more expensive Ford Edge delivers some features that you’ll have to pay extra for in the Escape. These include:

  • Keyless start
  • Rain-sensing windshield wipers
  • Satellite radio
  • Wi-Fi® hotspot compatibility
  • Driver lumbar support
  • BLIS® (Blind Spot Information System) with Cross-Traffic Alert
  • Lane-Keeping System

So, comparing the Ford Edge vs. Ford Escape, it’s clear that you’ll receive quite a lot in return for the higher Edge starting price. If you’re able to pay, we think you’ll find that these features are well worth the cost as you drive around Elk River or Monticello.

Ford Edge vs. Escape Dimensions:

  • At the end of the day, space might be one of your most important considerations! Although both seat five, the Edge is certainly the larger with 113.9 cubic feet of passenger space. The Escape offers 98.7 cubic feet of the same.
  • The Edge also wins out with up to 73.4 cubic feet of cargo space. With its rear seats folded, the Escape cargo space maxes out at 68 cubic feet.
