Two models often come up in debate when folks around Richmond, Mechanicsville, or Ashland start considering SUVs: the Ford Edge vs. Chevy Traverse. Which model offers more of what you're looking for? To answer that, the Richmond Ford Lincoln staff decided to piece together a comparison, where we'll be considering various aspects of each model.

The following sections will not only touch on key points about the 2019 Ford Edge and 2019 Chevy Traverse, but they'll also compare these features, giving you a better idea of which model is right for your lifestyle!

Ford Edge vs Chevy Traverse Engine Comparison

The 2019 Ford Edge and 2019 Traverse each work to make your travels more enjoyable and more engaging.

For Ford, this means creating a varied engine lineup that allows you to choose from a few different engines. For instance, the Edge is equipped with a 2.0L 4-cylinder that generates 245 horsepower and 275 lb-ft of torque. If you want to go in a different direction, there's the dynamic and fun 2.7L EcoBoost® V6, which produces up to 335 horsepower and 380 lb-ft of torque.

Each of these figures are significant and it's this variety that gives the Ford Edge an advantage on the Chevy Traverse, which offers just one engine: a 3.6L V6 that puts out 310 horsepower and 266 lb-ft of torque.

On-Road Technology

Technology is a key to modern SUVs, and the Chevy Traverse and Ford Edge each strive to make your daily commute more enjoyable by offering a range of favorable features.

For example, the Ford Edge comes with many useful features, such as the Intelligent AWD with AWD Disconnect capabilities, a system that allows the rear driveline to disconnect from the front wheels, reducing drag and engine demands. There's also the Ford Performance Tuned Suspension that's ideal for spirited drivers.

Lastly, with the Ford Co-Pilot360™ suite, you'll have the following features to boost the safety of your rides:

  • Pre-Collision Assist with Automatic Emergency Braking
  • Blind Spot Information System with Cross-Traffic Alert
  • Lane-Keeping System
  • Rear View Camera
  • Auto High-Beam Headlamps

The Chevy Traverse has its own range of technology to aid performance, including the AWD system, but it's fair to say the Traverse lags behind the Ford Edge in the technology department.

Exterior Styling

There's nothing wrong with adding a little flash and flair to your next vehicle-something the Ford Edge and Chevy Traverse know a lot about.

For example, the last Ford Edge trim level is the stunning Ford Edge ST, an SUV exuding pure style with its gloss black-painted mesh grille, body color rear spoiler, and body-color lower cladding. Other available features include:  

  • Dual exhaust tips
  • Panoramic Vista Roof®
  • LED headlamps
  • LED park projector
  • LED Amber light blade turn signal

The Chevy Traverse, while offering a few styling changes like the LED daytime running lights, can't keep up with the immense options presented by Ford.
