 Dare to Compare - 2017 Ford Edge vs. Chevrolet Equinox  

If you are a busy parent looking for the best way to haul your family from one activity to the next, you need the 2017 Ford Edge. We will compare the Edge to the Chevrolet Equinox to show you why it is the superior choice for a busy family like yours.

Passenger space

Having the right amount of space inside your family hauler is a top priority for most shoppers. That is exactly what you will get with the Ford Edge. It offers a total passenger volume of 113.9 cubic feet; whereas, the Equinox only has 99.7 cubic feet. And, with 57.5 inches of hip room in the back seat of the Edge, you should be able to fit in three car seats, if needed. The Equinox only comes with 51.1 inches of rear hip room.


Another family need is lots of cargo space. Behind the second row in the Edge, families will be able to use 39.2 cubic feet of space. The Equinox only offers 31.5 cubic feet. And, on those days when you are hauling stuff instead of your family, you can fold down the second row for up to 73.4 cubic feet of space in the Edge. With the Equinox, you only get up to 63.7 cubic feet.


Besides space, you want to feel confident that your family's car has the right amount of power when you need it. For example, if you are merging on to the highway, passing a slower driver, avoiding a collision, or driving up a steep hill. The Edge's base engine is a turbocharged four-cylinder that delivers an impressive 245 horsepower and 275 lb-ft of torque. On the other hand, the Equinox's four-cylinder engine is only rated at 182 horsepower and 172 lb-ft of torque.
