Ford Edge vs Chevrolet Equinox: Engine Specs & Performance

A key component to picking the right SUV is knowing what the vehicle is capable of. Both the Ford Edge and Chevy Equinox get powered by respective turbocharged engines. However, there's a pretty significant difference in the abilities of these turbo engines.

  • The Ford Edge includes a Twin-Scroll 2.0L EcoBoost® 4-cylinder, which delivers 250 horsepower and 280 lb-ft of torque. There's also a 2.7L engine making 335 horsepower and 380 lb-ft of torque.
  • The Equinox features a 1.5L Turbo 4-cylinder engine, which produces 170 horsepower and 203 lb-ft of torque. The optional engine is a 2.0L Turbo making 252 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque.
  • The Ford Edge engine is standard with an 8-speed automatic transmission, while the Chevy Equinox is standard with a 6-speed automatic transmission.

Ford Edge vs Chevy Equinox: Which Is Bigger?

The Equinox and Edge offer spacious cabins that are suitable for five passengers. Both SUVs offer two rows of seating with additional cargo space in back. The vehicles also include respective 60/40-split rear benches, which can be partially folded to make room for longer materials, or they can be folded flat to open the maximum amount of cargo space.

  • The Ford Edge offers more room for front-row passengers with 40.2 inches of headroom and 42.6 inches of legroom. The front-row Equinox passengers get 40 inches of headroom and 40.9 inches of legroom.
  • The spatial advantage of the Edge carries over in the second row with 40.3 inches of headroom and 40.6 inches of legroom vs. the 38.5 inches of headroom and 39.9 inches of legroom in the rear of the Equinox.
  • The Ford Edge offers 39.2 cubic feet of cargo space, which expands to 73.4 cubic feet when the back seats are folded down flat.
  • The Chevy Equinox includes 29.9 cubic feet of cargo space, which only expands to 63.9 cubic feet when the rear bench is folded.

Selecting a Performance Trim

The 2020 Ford Edge offers a specific performance trim, something the Chevrolet Equinox doesn't do.

  • Brushless radiator cooling fan
  • Performance brake pads
  • Summer-only tires
