The Ford Escape vs the Ford Edge: which SUV is right for you?

At Roush Ford in Columbus OH, we have a great selection of Ford SUVS. Let's see how our popular Ford Escape compares to the stylish Ford Edge, that way you can see which one you want to bring home to Dublin.

Size & Style

The Escape is a compact/small SUV and the Edge, which is about 10-inches longer, is in the midsize category. As expected, with all seats up or down, the Edge has more cargo space than the Escape.

If you're shopping by looks, the Escape has more a more utilitarian vibe that is ready for adventure. If style is what you're after, the Edge is sleeker, and that's perfect for a night out on the town.


The Escape has three engines in its lineup. There's one with 168 horsepower, an engine that produces 179 horsepower, and at the top is a 2.0L EcoBoost with 245 horsepower for extra getup around Hilliard. Since the Edge is larger, you'll naturally have a bigger engine.

Most of the Edge trims have a 2.0L EcoBoost as well, though it was 250 horsepower. When the Edge was redesigned, it earned a new ST trim and got a performance-focused engine with 335 horsepower, as well as sport-tuned suspension.

Both models have upgraded options, but if you really crave performance, you've got to check out the Edge's ST trim.


Safety matters to many drivers who make their way around Grove City, and starting at the SE trim for the Escape you can upgrade to the Safe & Smart Package that offers advanced technologies like BLIS® with cross-traffic alert, lane-keeping, and automatic headlights.

As you move up the trims, there's more options, like LED lights and parking assistance features. Not all drivers want these features, though, and that's when you should should go with the Escape because you can choose them.

If you do want them, however, the Edge now comes standard with Ford's new Co-Pilot360™ package that has advanced features.
