Both backed by their five-star NHTSA safety ratings, the 2021 Ford Escape and 2021 Ford Edge, ensure you don’t have to compromise on technology, safety features, power, and more. The 2021 Ford Escape can fit up to five occupants and 65.4 cu. ft. of cargo space when all rear seats are folded down. In comparison, the 2021 Ford Edge has room for five adults to fit comfortably while providing up to 73.4 cubic feet when the back seats are laid flat.
The 2021 Ford Escape includes four engine choices, including two hybrid powertrains. The 2021 Ford Escape comes standard with a turbocharged EcoBoost three-cylinder engine which can produce 180-horsepower. The 2021 Ford Edge features a 250-horsepower turbo-four with an eight-speed automatic, while the ST has a 335-horsepower twin-turbo V6 engine and a seven-speed automatic. When adequately equipped, both vehicles can tow up 3,500 pounds.
Highlighting the benefits of each vehicle, the 2021 Escape has a lower starting price while providing more fuel economy options with the hybrid and plug-in hybrid models. In contrast, the 2021 Edge offers more cargo space and power, while the ST trim level delivers more towing capacity. At the same time, both provide the functionality and practicality that every family vehicle needs without compromising on luxury details.
