Trying to decide which new Ford SUV is the best is like choosing your favorite child – it just can’t be done. However, a strong argument could be made that the 2018 Ford Edge is the cream of the new Ford SUV crop, and therefore the leader of the SUV segment as a whole. We say this because the new Ford Edge is smack dab in the middle of the new Ford SUV lineup in terms of interior space, power, capability and fuel efficiency. That means it’s big enough but not too big to handle, powerful enough but not so powerful that you’re spending an arm and a leg at the pump, and capable enough while still being incredibly affordable.

That versatility means the new Ford Edge is the perfect choice for anyone shopping for a new SUV. To show you just how true that statement is, we put together this 2018 Ford Edge versus 2018 Jeep Cherokee head-to-head model comparison.
