How Does Ford Edge Compare to Nissan, Toyota, and Honda?

Ford Edge, Nissan Murano, Toyota RAV4, and Honda CR-V are all top choices for drivers of all kinds, from commuters and growing families to weekend warriors, extended vacationers, and off-the-beaten-path orienteers. The former two are highly popular mid-size SUVs, while the latter are compact SUVs with serious competitive aspirations to the larger segment. No matter which way you look at them, they're all crossovers that are some of the most sought-after in America today.

However, when it comes down to details, the new Ford Edge pulls ahead in all the right ways. See for yourself here at Terry Henricks Ford in Archbold -- our experts have made comparing each of the new SUVs and crossovers easy.

Ford Edge vs Nissan Murano

  • Ford Edge offers a choice between twin-turbocharged 250-horsepower EcoBoost and 335-horsepower V6 engines. The first comes standard in the SE, SEL, and Titanium trims. The second comes standard in ST. Their torque ratings range from 280 pound-feet in the former to 380 pound-feet in the latter. Nissan Murano, however, features only one engine. It's a 3.5-liter V6 capable of 260 horsepower and 240 pound-feet of torque. The takeaway: Ford Edge is both a quicker accelerator and a harder worker.
  • Between them, Ford Edge gets better fuel economy. It can achieve up to 22 mpg in a city like Defiance, 29 mpg down the highway to Toledo, and 25 mpg combined in FWD. Nissan Murano, on the other hand, gets only up to 20 mpg, 28 mpg, and 23 mpg respectively.
  • In every Ford Edge, the all-new Ford Co-Pilot360 system comes standard. Its commitment to your safety is more comprehensive than the competition: it features a blind-spot monitor, cross-traffic alert, pre-collision assistance, auto emergency brakes, a lane-keeping alert and assist system, a driver-alert feature, pedestrian detection, collision warning, dynamic brake support, auto high beams, and a rear-view camera with a lens washer. Optional in SEL and later, you can find adaptive cruise control with stop-and-go, lane centering, and evasive steering assist. Nissan Murano features only an active brake limited slip, intelligent forward collision warning, and auto emergency braking standard. A blind spot warning and rear cross traffic alert come standard later, in the SV trim, and pedestrian detection and intelligent lane intervention are only standard at the top of the line, in the Platinum trim.

Ford Edge vs Toyota RAV4

  • Between them, Ford Edge is more energetic and fun to drive, not to mention capable. It features a selection of two engines, a 250-horsepower EcoBoost and a 335-horsepower V6, both twin-turbocharged. The former's standard in SE, SEL, and Titanium and capable of 280 pound-feet. The latter's standard in ST and can shell out as much as 380 pound-feet. Toyota RAV4 has a single engine option, a 2.5-liter Dynamic Force I4, and it puts out only 203 horsepower and 184 pound-feet of torque.
  • Ford Edge is roomier than Toyota RAV4 for longer Wauseon drives. It makes a whopping 113.9 cubic feet of room available for passengers, while its rival offers only up to 98.9 cubic feet.
  • You can tow up to 3,500 pounds in Ford Edge with an available Class II tow prep package, putting that outing to Delta on your radar. The package comes standard in the ST trim and available in SEL and Titanium. In Toyota RAV4, only the Adventure trim can tow that much.



Ford Edge vs Honda CR-V

  • Ford Edge is better-equipped to handle the climate of the day on your trip over to Swanton. Perforated leather-trimmed, heated, and cooled front seats are options in Titanium and ST, and heated back seats are available in the outboard position. Honda CR-V offers no seat cooling at all, and there's no rear-seat heating offered, either.
  • With an 8-inch SYNC 3 infotainment touchscreen that features Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, Ford Edge makes controlling your entertainment and smartphone connectivity on the way to Napoleon easy. This system's standard in the SEL trim and later. Honda CR-V EX has a similar system, but it's smaller, only 7 inches wide diagonally.
  • Tech-wise, Ford Edge is a lot savvier than Honda CR-V. It features Ford+Alexa interoperability, a standard FordPass Connect 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot, wireless charging for Qi-compatible mobile devices in the Titanium trim, an optional rear-seat entertainment system with dual headrest monitors, and available 12-speaker B&O premium audio. There's no Alexa support built into Honda CR-V, nor are Wi-Fi, a wireless charger, or rear-seat entertainment available, and top-tier trims feature only nine speakers.
