Escape vs. Edge: Which Five-Passenger Ford SUV Is Right for You?

Ford offers a pair of very competitive two-row SUVs in the Escape and Edge. Both offer plenty of comfort and tech features, as well as seating for five. But one SUV must be better than the other, right?

The Ford Escape is a compact SUV that features sporty handling and above-average cargo space. It competes with the Honda CR-V, Mazda CX-5, Hyundai Tucson, Subaru Forester, Toyota RAV4, and others in the crowded segment.

The Ford Edge received a refresh for 2019, gaining a new transmission and a top-of-the-line ST performance trim. It features a smooth, car-like ride and competes with two-row midsize SUVs like the Nissan Murano and Hyundai Santa Fe.

Both vehicles have their pros and cons. If you are deciding between the two and need to know which one to choose, read on. We break down the two vehicles in terms of price, features, safety, performance, technology, and other attributes, using our new car scores.
