2019 Ford Edge vs 2018 Chevy Equinox
The 2018 model year saw Ford welcome a new addition to its SUV lineup in the form of the 2018 Ford EcoSport while also pulling out all the stops in creating the all-new 2018 Ford Expedition. Ford is now looking to continue that SUV momentum into the 2019 model year starting with the all-new 2019 Ford Edge lineup.
Thanks to a bevy of updates, upgrades, enhancements and improvements, the all-new 2019 Edge lineup will make it even harder for the competition to catch up. And that’s without even mentioning the 2019 Edge lineup’s two all-new additions – the 2019 Edge ST and the 2019 Edge Titanium Elite. To show you just how impressive the 2019 Edge lineup truly is, let’s see how it stacks up against one of its stiffest competitors in this 2019 Ford Edge versus 2018 Chevy Equinox head-to-head SUV comparison.

Listing the Ways the All-New Ford Edge Lineup at Akins Ford near Atlanta GA Makes the New Chevy Equinox Lineup Want to Skip the 2019 Model Year
Let’s get the most exciting news regarding the all-new 2019 Ford Edge lineup out of the way first. As we noted in the introduction to this model comparison, the 2019 Edge lineup features two all-new trim levels – an all-new luxury model in the form of the 2019 Edge Titanium Elite and an all-new first-of-its-kind Ford Performance SUV in the form of the 2019 Edge ST. The 2018 Chevy Equinox lineup features no such luxury or performance models, and it’s a safe bet the 2019 Equinox lineup won’t either.
Another exciting piece of news regarding the 2019 Edge lineup is that it will feature Ford’s all-new state-of-the-art Co-Pilot360 suite of safety and driver assistance systems. And, best of all, it’s standard on all new 2019 Edge models while featuring safety and driver assistance systems that were only available on higher trim levels in the past. The 2018 Equinox lineup, on the other hand, makes you pay more if you want more advanced new safety and driver assistance features.
To top it all off, the 2019 Edge lineup’s standard and available engines are far more powerful than the standard and available engines of the 2018 Chevrolet Equinox lineup.
