Comparison Review

Comfort
The Ford Edge offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Toyota Highlander, with comparable head- and legroom. The Ford Edge offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Toyota Highlander, making it a little more comfortable for the driver and front passenger.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Ford Edge as you will with the Toyota Highlander, 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). Whether you pick the Ford Edge or the Toyota Highlander, it's going to cost you about the same.

Dimensions
The Ford Edge is about the same width as the Toyota Highlander. The Ford Edge is slightly shorter than the Toyota Highlander, which may make it easier to park.

Handling
The Ford Edge has a larger turning radius than the Toyota Highlander, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

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

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

Utility
Soccer Moms beware - the Ford Edge seats a lot fewer people than the Toyota Highlander. The Ford Edge has less cargo space than the Toyota Highlander, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.
