2018 Ford Escape vs. 2018 Ford Edge

If you’re looking at a Ford crossover or Ford SUV for your next vehicle, you might just find yourself comparing 2018 Ford Escape vs. 2018 Ford Edge. With that in mind, we’ve taken the time to compare them on:

  • Power and Efficiency
  • Space and Size
  • Standard and Available Features

Read on to see how these two popular models break down against each other.

The Ford Edge is undoubtedly the more powerful of the two, so it should appeal to drivers who like to feel an extra burst when they hit the gas. That said, the Ford Escape is still agile and responsive, and it delivers slightly stronger fuel economy ratings.

Need to regularly fill your vehicle with passengers or take a whole heap of cargo? If so, the Ford Edge’s generous interior dimensions are going to impress. More likely to find yourself sticking to tight Aurora and Naperville streets rather than commuting to and from Plainfield? Then the Ford Escape’s superior maneuverability should appeal.


You’ll never want for top-tier standard features in either the Ford Escape or the Ford Edge. In fact, both models include the following features across all trims:

  • Rearview Camera
  • 4.2-Inch Central Display
  • Bluetooth

That said, the larger Ford Edge does offer a few available features you won’t find in the Ford Escape. These include:

  • Rear Entertainment System
  • 12-Speaker Sound System
