The Ford Edge vs. the Chevy Traverse

The Ford Edge offers superior standard features when compared to the Chevy Traverse in the base trim. The Ford Edge comes with standard Keyless Start, Remote Engine Start, Trip Computer, Rain-Sensing Wipers, and Power Steering, whereas the Chevy Traverse does not. The Traverse gets the slight edge with seating for up to eight passengers on the way to North Las Vegas. But if you don't need to carry that many people, why pay extra?

Under the hood, the standard engine of the Chevy Traverse is a 3.6-liter V6, which delivers a powerful 310 horsepower and 266 pound-feet of torque. However, this falls short of the Ford Edge with its available 2.7-liter EcoBoost® engine that offers a lighter yet fully potent powertrain that delivers 335 horsepower and 380 pound-feet of torque. It's the most powerful gas V6 in its class, sending a message. Another positive attribute is size. The Chevrolet Traverse offers more passenger room, but the Ford Edge is easier to handle with a more compact frame.

When it comes to driver and passenger safety, the Ford Edge has a clear advantage. Not just with standard driver-assist features, but available ones as well. The Ford Edge brings you Forward Collision Warning and Lane Departure Warning. The Traverse doesn't offer it at all. The only standard driver assist feature found on the Chevy is their Teen Driver system and a rear-seat reminder.

The Ford Edge vs. the Toyota Highlander

The base price of the Ford Edge will appeal to Moapa and Pahrump drivers, as the price is significantly lower, compared to the new Toyota Highlander. The Toyota Highlander offers more horsepower in its sole engine option, But, if horsepower is what you are looking for, the Ford Edge gives it to you with the twin-turbocharged 335-horsepower EcoBoost V6. However, if you are concerned about gas prices, the Ford Edge will get your farther with its EPA-estimated 21 mpg as you cruise around town and 29 MPG on the highway to North Las Vegas.

Like the Traverse, the Highlander will cart up to eight people in its standard configuration, but its third row is more cramped and only suited for the smallest passengers. On the flip side, the spacious interior of the Ford Edge is more conducive to taller riders. In the end, you'll be paying extra for the third row of the Highlander.


The Ford Edge vs. the Jeep Grand Cherokee

The Jeep Grand Cherokee is the superior off-road option with four-wheel drive and features that are intended to crush, tough to navigate the terrain. That is why it was built. When compared to how much more expensive the Jeep Grand Cherokee is, that might not be worth it. The Jeep Grand Cherokee offers more powerful engine options. However, the Ford Edge gives you a better city and highway mileage to save you at the pump.

The Ford Edge was built for passenger comfort and just looking at the list of standard driver-assist, and infotainment features prove that. Passengers have more space in the Ford Edge as 113.9 cubic feet of passenger space outpaces the 105.4 cubic feet of passenger room available in the Jeep Grand Cherokee. There's even better cargo volume in the Ford Edge, with its 83.4 cubic feet maximum to the 68.3 cubic feet of the Jeep Grand Cherokee.
