Ford Edge vs Honda CR-V Specs

While both the Ford Edge and Honda CR-V seem similar, when it comes to their performances, their differences are unmistakable. The 2018 Ford Edge comes outfitted with a Twin-Scroll 2.0L EcoBoost® 4-cylinder engine. The 2018 Honda CR-V comes with a 2.4L 4-cylinder. The Ford Edge also features two other engine options, while the Honda CR-V only offers one additional engine.

  • The Honda CR-V and its 2.4L 4-cylinder only produces 184 horsepower and 180 lb-ft of torque.
  • The 1.5L 4-cylinder turbo engine, optional with the 2018 CR-V, maxes out at 190 horsepower and 179 lb-ft of torque, which still can't compete with the 2018 Edge and its base-level engine.
