Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Ford Edge than in the Nissan Pathfinder. The Nissan Pathfinder will be a hit with tall drivers and their front seat passengers, since it has greater front head- and legroom than the Ford Edge.

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). The Ford Edge is somewhat more expensive than the Nissan Pathfinder.

Dimensions
Since the Ford Edge is much slimmer than the Nissan Pathfinder, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. The Ford Edge is slightly shorter than the Nissan Pathfinder, which may make it easier to park.

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.

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

Utility
Soccer Moms beware - the Ford Edge seats a lot fewer people than the Nissan Pathfinder. 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.
