2021 Ford Edge vs 2021 Toyota Venza

After taking a five-year break, the Toyota Venza is back and very clearly gunning for the hot-selling Ford Edge SUV. Will the Venza make up for lost time, or has Ford built up a competitive edge? Discover which midsize crossover offers the best value for your investment in our comparison of the 2021 Ford Edge vs the all-new 2021 Toyota Venza.

In the case of the Ford Edge, let’s just say this ain’t your grandma’s crossover. Most versions of the 2021 Ford Edge are powered by a strapping 2.0L EcoBoost® engine, while the Edge ST moves up in status with an athletic 2.7L EcoBoost® V6 and a sports-tuned suspension. In comparison, the 2021 Toyota Venza lacks passion with a powertrain that goes easy on the “power” part.

Another thing the Ford Edge and the new Toyota Venza have in common is that they go heavy on interior space. The 2021 Ford Edge is the bigger of the two, providing up to 39.2 cubic feet of cargo space behind the second row. This is where things get interesting. The 2021 Toyota Venza spares just 28.7 cubic feet of cargo space behind the second row, putting it more than 10.5 cubic feet behind the Edge.

In the battle of the screens, the Toyota Venza wins largest available display with its 12.3-inch touchscreen, but most Venza’s actually get a much smaller 8-inch display. The larger screen is standard only on the Venza Limited, the most expensive trim level in the lineup. The Ford Edge, on the other hand, has its 12-inch, portrait-style touchscreen included on every model in the lineup. The new display features split-screen capabilities, wireless Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™, an intelligent voice command system, and so much more.
