Richmond Ford Lincoln is happy to help our friends from Richmond, Mechanicsville, and Ashland, Virginia, determine if the Edge or Escape is right for them.

Give this comparison a read to learn more about these SUVs!

Ford Edge vs Escape: Under the Hood

The 2022 Ford Edge offers two powerful engine options for those who want a lot of get-up-and-go.

The standard engine is a 2.0L twin-scroll EcoBoost® I-4 with 250 horsepower and 280 lb-ft of torque. An available 2.7L EcoBoost® V6 engine provides even more power with 335 horsepower and 380 lb-ft of torque.

The 2022 Ford Escape has a few more engine options but is slightly less powerful. Two of the engines are gas and two are hybrid. The standard engine is a 1.5L EcoBoost® with 181 horsepower and 190 lb-ft of torque.

The other engines are…

  • 2.0L EcoBoost®: 250 horsepower and 280 lb-ft of torque
  • 2.5L Hybrid: 200 total system horsepower and 155 lb-ft of torque
  • 2.5L Plug-In Hybrid: 221 total system horsepower and 155 lb-ft of torque

Furthermore, the Edge only offers all-wheel drive (AWD), while the Escape has standard front-wheel drive with available AWD if you prefer it.

Edge vs Escape: Dimensions

We spend a lot of time in our vehicles, and there should be enough space for everyone. The 2022 Edge and 2022 Escape seat five people and offer enough space for cargo and passengers.

If you need all the seats down to grab some new furniture or head out camping, the Escape has a total 65.4 cubic feet of cargo space. With the second row up, you'll still get 37.5 cubic feet of space.

The Ford Edge has even more with:

  • 73.4 cubic feet of cargo space behind the first row
  • 39.2 cubic feet behind the second row

Both SUVs offer plenty of legroom, too. The Edge has 42.6 inches in the front and 40.6 inches in the back. The Escape provides 42.4 inches of legroom in the front and 40.7 inches in the back.

Ford Edge vs Ford Escape: Interior Features

Turning our attention to inside the SUVs, you'll find standard cloth seats and the option to opt for available leather-trimmed seating. You can also opt for driver's seat memory and heated front seats at higher trim levels.

Both vehicles also have standard infotainment systems; however, the systems begin to diverge when you get into the higher-level trims. The Edge ends up with the SYNC® 4A infotainment system, while the Escape has the SYNC® 3 system.

Some features that both infotainment systems have in common are:

  • Voice-activated in-vehicle navigation
  • FordPass™ Connect
  • SiriusXM®

You can also customize both vehicles' interior lighting with the available ambient lighting feature. Change the colors, depending on your mood.

Don't enjoy dealing with cords to charge your phone while you drive? You can opt for the available wireless charging pad in either SUV to simply set your phone down and let it charge.
