Be Sure to Pick the Right Exciting SUV When Comparing the Ford Edge

Our Ford dealer loves helping car shoppers with their search, and we have several ways of doing so. One way is with our Ford model comparisons. There are more vehicles on the market than ever before, including more SUVs to consider, but we can help you compare these SUVs in the areas we know you care about most. We've helped many compare the new Ford Edge in Taylor with models like the Hyundai Santa Fe, Chevy Blazer, and Honda Passport. Below, we highlight ways that the Ford Edge excites in more ways than those competitors.

Ford Edge vs Chevy Blazer

  • Both the Ford Edge and Chevy Blazer are sporty two-row SUVs, but the Ford Edge is the more powerful of the two. It comes standard with a 250-horsepower engine and has powertrains packing up to 335 horsepower. Compare that to the 228-horsepower engine standard in the Blazer, which only offers up to 308 horsepower.
  • The new Ford Edge offers Allen Park a modern feature package that means more focus on the fun you're having instead of trying to get everything to work as it should. The Ford Edge comes with a touchscreen up to 12 inches that has wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The Chevy Blazer needs you to plug in your smartphone to use it through its touchscreen, which only goes up to 8 inches.
  • Part of getting the most of your exciting SUV is feeling confident in your safety, which the Ford Edge achieves with a package of standard driver-assist technologies. This package includes items like Evasive Steering Assist and Blind Spot Information System with Cross-Traffic Alert that aren't standard in the Chevy Blazer.

Ford Edge vs Hyundai Santa Fe

  • One benefit of owning an SUV is the comfort and cargo space that the cabin offers. Those items are clear in the Ford Edge, which has wider rows of seats and more rear-row headroom than the Hyundai Santa Fe. The new Ford Edge near Detroit also has more cargo space behind the second row and a greater max cargo capacity than the Hyundai Santa Fe.
  • These two are larger SUVs, but only the Ford Edge provides the power you need so that your drives don't feel sluggish. The Ford Edge comes standard with a 250-horsepower engine and offers one packing up to 335 horsepower, which easily bests the 191-horsepower engine in the Santa Fe and the 281 horsepower engine it has available.
  • The Ford Edge and Hyundai Santa Fe share many similar features, but it's the small things that can make all the difference. The Ford Edge offers a larger touchscreen with split-display ability and has sliding second-row seats for additional comfort, neither of which you'll find in this Hyundai SUV.

Ford Edge vs Honda Passport

  • The Honda Passport is a relatively new addition to the capable two-row SUV class, but it doesn't bring much new to the class. The Ford Edge has a more modern infotainment system that includes wireless smartphone compatibility and over-the-air software updates not available in the Honda SUV. The Ford Edge has more standard safety technologies, too, which are sure to impress families.
  • You want a comfortable cabin in your SUV, and the Ford Edge provides that. It has more head and legroom in its two rows of seats than what you'll find in the Honda Passport. That space is great for when you're driving friends around or if you're heading out on a camping trip up north.
  • You also want power from your SUV, and the Ford Edge packs plenty of it with up to 335 horsepower and 380 pound-feet of torque. That power will help you out in poor driving conditions as well as exciting highway drives, and it easily beats the 280 horsepower and 262 pound-feet of torque that the Honda Passport maxes out at.
