Advantages of the Ford Edge Midsize SUV 

Both the Edge and the Equinox feature seating for up to five passengers, but the Edge is quite clearly the more spacious of the two. The analysis below digs deeper into what advantages the Ford Edge is able to provide over the 2021 Chevy Equinox.

Interior Space & Feature Highlights

More specifically, the 2021 Ford Edge rewards buyers with 113.9 cubic feet of total passenger space, putting it more than 10 cubic feet ahead of the Equinox’s 103.2 cubic-foot passenger volume. Note that that extra seating space comes in addition to the nearly 10 cubic feet of extra cargo space that the Ford Edge provides over the Chevy Equinox.

Most notable in the 2021 Ford Edge is its penchant for high-performance engines. Even the less athletic Edge variants combine pliancy with precision. But despite its athletic demeanor, the Edge’s interior is comfortable, quiet, and well-equipped. New to the Ford Edge this year is a standard largest-in-class 12-inch central touchscreen display with standard SYNC® 4A capabilities.

Ford Co-Pilot360™ Safety Features

The Ford Edge was even the first Ford SUV to offer Ford Co-Pilot360™ as a standard suite of driver assistance features. Today, that package includes forward-collision mitigation with automatic emergency braking, blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert, lane-keeping assistance, and automatic high beams.
