2018 Ford Escape and Edge models positioned next to each other

The automotive industry is about as progressive as they come; year after year, we see every single model advance both its power and innovation in an attempt to give drivers all that they ask for and more. In the Ford model line, SUVs are king, and the 2018 Escape and Edge models are two of the best in the business when it comes to interior space, tech connectivity and overall performance. Because of this, many who step foot on a Ford dealership lot have both of these in mind – there's no debate over each of these models' worthiness, but which one best suits you?

We wanted to shake things up a bit today; instead of pitting our Ford vehicles against their top industry competition, today we're showing you how the Escape and Edge stack up head to head. They both have much to offer, so let's jump in and see how a Ford vehicle can fit your needs!
