2019 Ford Edge vs 2019 Ford Explorer

2019 Ford Edge exterior front fascia and drivers side vs 2019 Ford Explorer front fascia and passenger side

Are you supposed to get the 2019 Ford Edge, or the 2019 Ford Explorer? Both are excellent vehicles, but one must win over the other, right? We can’t tell you what vehicle would best suit your needs, but we can give you the information you need to decide that for yourself.

For this comparison, we are taking the specs and features of the lowest trims for these two vehicles. That means that you’ll be seeing the 2019 Ford Edge SE with the 2.0L 4cyl Turbo engine. This is compared to the 2019 Ford Explorer Base with the 3.5L 6cyl engine. So, if you’ve seen or read about different specs and features on these two vehicles, it was probably for a different trim.

Now let’s take a look at the horsepower/torque, transmission, technology, and space that both of these vehicles have to offer their future drivers.

Power, technology, and interior space

If you are someone who is looking for a bit more power in their vehicle, then you have the potential to be happy with either vehicle. While the Ford Explorer rises above the Ford Edge when it comes to horsepower, the Edge beats the Explorer when it comes to torque. So, you can really go either way if you are looking for a powerful vehicle.

If you are looking for something that has more technology features on the base trim, you may want to check out the 2019 Ford Edge. For example; you can get the keyless ignition system standard on the base trim of the 2019 Ford Edge, but that particular feature isn’t available on the base trim of the Explorer.

Cargo space is a bit more difficult to compare, since both vehicles have a different seating capacity. If you find yourself needing to cart around many people, you may be more inclined to go with the Explorer, since it has 7 seats. However, this extra seating also means that you won’t have as much space behind that last row. If you are looking for the normal 5 seats, then the Edge might be for you, as it has less seating than the Explorer, but more cargo space behind the last row.
