Ford Edge vs. Ford Escape

The differences between the Ford Edge and Ford Escape SUVs generally fall into three main categories: price, size, and power/efficiency. A new Edge costs around $7,500 more than a new Escape, and the margin grows to more than $10K as you climb the trim level ladder. This isn’t to suggest you get less in the way of comfort and convenience, safety, or technology features on the Escape. Rather, it has more to do with the fact that the Edge is simply a bigger vehicle with larger, more powerful engines that up the performance ante. Indeed, the midsize Edge offers considerably more passenger and cargo space than the compact Escape thanks to its larger dimensions. However, the latter’s sliding second-row seat does provide some flexibility. What the Escape lacks in power, though, it makes up in efficiency, outperforming the larger, heavier Edge by a wide margin in terms of fuel economy.
