2019 Ford Edge vs. 2019 Ford Explorer Review

Comparison Review

The Ford Edge offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Ford Explorer, with comparable head- and legroom. The Ford Explorer 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.

You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Ford Edge as you will with the Ford Explorer, as they are both able to travel similar distances on a tank of gas.

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). Clearly, the Ford Edge is a better financial choice over the Ford Explorer, when considering MSRP. 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 Ford Explorer have similar Destination Charges.

Since the Ford Edge is much slimmer than the Ford Explorer, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. 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 Ford Explorer.

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

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

The Ford Edge has less seating than the Ford Explorer, making the Ford Explorer the better choice, if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The Ford Edge has less cargo space than the Ford Explorer, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

The Ford Edge comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Ford Explorer.
