The competition within the mid-sized SUV segment is hotter than ever—how does the 2016 Ford Edge stack up?
Pretty darn well, it turns out. The below video squares the Big Blue Oval’s road warrior up against the Subaru Outback and the results are incredibly encouraging:
The Edge manages a 3,500-pound maximum towing capacity—this easily eclipses the 2,700 pounds the Outback can muster. Also, this rating is with the standard 2.0L turbocharged direct-injection EcoBoost engine, versus the decidedly more dated 2.5L in Subaru’s automobile.
Desire an available hands-free, foot-activated lift gate to assist with those crucial family grocery runs? Ford’s well-rounded machine sports it. And continuing with the immense focus on convenience, it also offers available Active Park Assist, which identifies parallel parking spots and steers you into place. Sadly, the competitor’s creation lacks both these features and will leave you fumbling for a door handle and frustrated with tight car spaces.
Adaptive Cruise Control in the famed Detroit auto maker’s SUV automatically maintains a safe, user-set gap between you and the vehicle you’re following. You won’t be enjoying this luxury when you hit the road in the Tokyo-based conglomerate’s competing option, however.
