If you're looking for a crossover SUV with well-rounded performance, an affordable entry price, and a well-appointed cabin to fit the comfort and entertainment needs of your whole family, then you'll do well to choose a Ford. However, once you've decided on the Ford brand of your crossover, you'll still have a big decision to make between the 2014 Ford Escape and the 2014 Ford Edge. Let's take a closer look at these two models to help you decide which one will be best suited for your needs.

A Quick Look at These Crossovers

The 2014 Ford Edge:

  • Powerful standard V6 engine
  • Slightly more cargo and passenger space

The 2014 Ford Escape:

  • Fuel-efficient turbocharged inline-four
  • Affordable and well-appointed basic trim 

What Kind of Performance Do You Need?

Both the 2014 Ford Edge and the 2014 Ford Escape offer competitive performance numbers from their respective powertrains, but deciding which one is right for your needs is a matter of balancing your desires for power and fuel economy. Here's how the powertrain of the 2014 Ford Edge SE FWD matches up to the comparably equipped and priced 2014 Ford Escape SE FWD:

       
  • Ford Edge: 3.5L V6 engine with 285 hp, 253 lb-ft of torque, and an EPA-estimated fuel economy of 22 mpg combined city/highway  
  • Ford Escape: 1.6L turbocharged four-cylinder engine with 178 hp, 184 lb-ft of torque, and an EPA-estimated fuel economy of 26 mpg combined city/highway 

Comparing the Cabins

These Ford crossover SUVs are similar in size and offer plenty of space when it comes to passenger room, standard cargo capacity, and maximum cargo area. Both vehicles also come with standard seating for five passengers. However, if you're looking for an affordable starting trim level with ample standard tech features, you may want to consider the 2014 Ford Escape. The base S trim on the Escape comes with:   

  • Bluetooth hands-free calling

All of these features are available on the Edge basic trim as upgrades, but come standard on a higher trim level.
