2019 Ford Edge vs 2018 Kia Sorento
The dawn of the 2019 model year is upon us here at Akins Ford near Atlanta, GA, and it’s kicking off with the all-new 2019 Ford Edge lineup. Once believed by some to be an after-thought living in the shadows of the Ford Escape, Ford Explorer and Ford Expedition, the all-new Edge lineup will change all of that thanks to an all-new performance trim level, an all-new luxury trim level, a next generation engine lineup, and a comprehensive suite of advanced new safety, technology, comfort and convenience features.
All of that combines to make the 2019 Edge lineup’s goal of making all other midsize SUVs obsolete an easily attainable one – as you’ll quickly see in this 2019 Ford Edge versus 2018 Kia Sorento head-to-head model comparison.
