2019 Ford Edge vs 2019 Ford Explorer
You’re in the market for a midsize SUV or crossover and you’ve narrowed it down to Ford. But you probably didn’t think that was going to be the easy part of your decision, did you? Now you need to make a tough choice between two fantastic vehicles – the 2019 Ford Edge and the 2019 Ford Explorer.

If you need some help, you’re in luck. These factors can help you make the hard call between two amazing Ford models, the 2019 Ford Explorer and the 2019 Ford Edge, both available at your local Southern California Ford dealers.

Passenger Capacity

The all-new Ford Edge offers comfortable seating with available heated and cooled front seats and heated rear outboard seats. Choose between high-quality fabric or supple leather upholstery for all five occupants.

The Ford Explorer also offers choices between fabric and leather seating surfaces. Heated and cooled front seats are also available, as are heated rear outboard seats in the second-row. But if you need room for more than five, the 2019 Ford Explorer’s seating for up to seven might be for you.

Interior Space

Sometimes it’s not about passengers, but cargo. It seems interior space is often at a premium, but that’s not the case with Ford SUVs and
crossovers. The three-row Ford Explorer has configurable cargo space with a fold-flat floor, offering up to 81.7 cu. ft. of cargo capacity behind the front seats, or 43.9 cu. ft behind the second-row.

The two-row Ford Edge also offers up great interior space. Get up to 73.4 cu. ft. of cargo into the back of your Ford Edge with the rear seats down or fit five passengers plus 39.2 cu. ft. of cargo simultaneously.


Both the 2019 Ford Edge and Ford Explorer SUV will amaze you with their performance. The Ford Edge optimizes fuel efficiency without compromising on performance with its standard-equipment 2.0-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder engine with 250hp and 280lb.-ft. of torque. Or, choose the new Ford Edge ST with a 2.7-liter EcoBoost V6 for 225hp and 380lb.-ft. of torque, but be ready to smile hard.

The 2019 Ford Explorer has a Ti-VCT 3.5-liter V6 as the standard engine, producing 290hp and 255lb.-ft. of torque. A more efficient 2.3-liter EcoBoost I-4 offers 280hp and jacks up torque to 310lb.-ft. Or, take power to the max with an available 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6, churning out 365hp and 350lb.-ft. of torque.

Towing Capabilities

Ford SUVs and crossovers are highly rated for towing abilities that expand the horizons of versatility. Th Ford Edge is available with Class II towing, offering up to 3,500 pounds of towing capacity. That’s plenty for most pop-up travel trailers, boats, and ATVs so you can live an active lifestyle without compromise.

The Ford Explorer also offers 3,500-pound Class II towing. Going a step further, though, the 2019 Ford Explorer also has available Class III towing, tallying up to 5,000 pounds in towing capacity.
