The Ford Edge Combines Performance and Practicality Like Few Other SUVs Can

Crossover SUV sales increase with each passing year, and when looking at the various models in that class, it's easy to see why drivers keep switching to them. Few vehicles combine heart-pounding performance with stress-reducing functionality and technologies as well as the crossovers available to those around Wells, ME, and none do it as well as the Ford Edge in our new Ford inventory.

It has a ton of options and available configurations so that you get what you want no matter what qualities are most important to you. We know many around Saco Bay will enjoy the Ford Edge because many already are, but if you want to see how it stacks up to other popular SUVs like the Toyota Highlander, Chevy Traverse, and Jeep Grand Cherokee, you'll find a ton more info about the SUVs below!


Ford Edge vs. Chevy Traverse

  • The Ford Edge has two rows of seats while the Traverse has three, but that doesn't stop the Edge from having more legroom in each row and many more cubic feet of cargo space behind the last row than the Chevy SUV.
  • The Ford Edge offers the more efficient engine of the two, which is important to many around Sanford, ME, but it also offers a 2.7-liter EcoBoost V6 engine that has more horsepower, 335, and torque, 380 pound-feet, as well as better city efficiency specs, 19 mpg, than the V6 of the Traverse, 310 horsepower, 266 pound-feet of torque, and 18 mpg city.
  • Drivers will find that space-saving design aspects of the Ford Edge, like a rotary gear shifter, make for an easier time using various amenities like cupholders than if they were in a Chevy Traverse. Plus, the Edge has tech like a 180-degree front-facing camera system that the Traverse doesn't.

Ford Edge vs. Toyota Highlander

  • When you want the most value, the Ford Edge is an easy choice between these two as it has a lower starting price than a new Toyota Highlander.
  • The Highlander is another three-row SUV, but it squeezes the rear rows together to make that possible, which means second-row passengers don't have a lot of room. The Ford Edge has plenty of head and legroom for that second row while still having a cargo space stretching nearly 40 cubic feet.
  • The standard engine of the Ford Edge is a turbo-four that has much more horsepower and torque than the standard four-cylinder of the Highlander, and the Edge is more efficient even with all-wheel drive, which the four-cylinder Highlander doesn't offer.

Ford Edge vs. Jeep Grand Cherokee

  • The value of the Ford Edge goes beyond the starting price, which is more affordable than the Jeep Grand Cherokee's, as it comes standard with advanced features, like Blind Spot Information System, that the Jeep SUV doesn't.
  • Many Biddeford drivers know the Jeep brand for their off-roading vehicles, but the Ford Edge is no slouch in this regard. The many different options and engines for the Edge allow you to choose a vehicle that can travel to remote destinations or one that delivers excitement on highways, which is where the Grand Cherokee is a bit of a letdown.
  • Both these SUVs only have two rows, but that's often all that car shoppers in the area need. Well, if you plan on filling your car with gear or passengers, you'll find that the more spacious Ford Edge better welcomes passengers and secures your cargo.
