April 10th, 2023 by

2023 Ford Edge ST

Thinking the efficient 2023 Ford Escape is just what you need? Wondering if you prefer the extra space of the 2023 Ford Edge? This guide from Woodhouse Ford of Omaha can help you determine your perfect fit. 

Spacious Cabins

Both two-row SUVs provide comfortable seating for up to five passengers. While the Ford Escape is classified as a compact SUV and the Ford Edge is classified as a midsize SUV, the difference in their passenger space is negligible. However, the Ford Edge is wider, so you’ll experience more shoulder room in this SUV.

Versatile Cargo Areas

Naturally, one of the biggest perks of an SUV is its versatile cargo area, which you’ll find in both SUVs. You’ll see the most notable space difference in the cargo areas of these two. The Ford Edge provides up to 73.4 cubic feet of cargo space with the 60/40 split second-row folded flat.

The Ford Escape features a sliding 60/40 split second row so that you can opt for an extra 5.9 inches of rear legroom or more cargo space. With it folded flat, your SUV can carry up to 65.4 cubic feet of cargo.

Enticing Performance

When you want maximum power, opt for the available 2.7-liter EcoBoost® engine in the Ford Edge, which generates up to 335 horsepower and 380 lb-ft of torque. While the Ford Escape doesn’t quite match those figures, it offers both hybrid and plug-in hybrid powertrains, giving you premium efficiency instead. Plus, with a maximum available 250 horsepower and 280 lb-ft of torque, it’s still fun to drive.
