Learn How Our Ford Edge Compares to its New Chevy Rival

 

One of the longest-running and most-passionate battles in the automotive industry is the one between Ford and Chevrolet. Each brand has an extremely loyal following, and each automaker uses the feud as fuel to improve their model lineup. For example, Ford recently revamped their highly popular Edge crossover SUV for the 2019 model year -- and Chevy turned to a name from the past when it introduced the 2019 Blazer crossover SUV. This led us to decide to put the two models up against each other in a head-to-head comparison and see which comes out on top. We encourage you to read on to learn the results.

 

Price

 

We compared entry-level models in order to keep things on as level a playing field as possible. While it's true that the introductory Ford Edge does have a slightly higher Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price than that of the base Blazer, it's worth noting that the Edge comes loaded with standard features that either aren't offered for the beginner Blazer or are available as costly options. Then there's the fact that the Edge is estimated to deliver better highway fuel economy than the Blazer, and that initial savings quickly evaporates.

 

Performance

 

Looking at the standard engines found in each SUV, this category win clearly goes to the Ford Edge. The Edge boasts a standard 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that manufactures 250 horsepower and 280 pound-feet of torque, blowing away the Blazer's 2.5-liter four-cylinder and its output of 193 horsepower and 188 pound-feet of torque. Both models can be equipped with larger V6 engines, with the Edge again taking the title for top performance. The Blazer's 3.6-liter V6 makes 305 horsepower, falling well short of the Ford Edge and its 335-horsepower 2.7-liter turbocharged V6.

 

Standard Features

 

Entry-level models of each crossover SUV are well equipped with such standard features as push-button start, auto-off headlights, variable speed intermittent wipers, infotainment systems, power mirrors, and power mirrors. However, as we mentioned earlier, the introductory Ford Edge includes many other standard amenities you either have to pay to add -- can't get at all on -- if you opt for the base model Blazer. These include privacy glass, wireless cell phone connection, rain-sensing wipers, MP3 player, aux audio input, and a pass-through rear seat that allows you to transport longer items.

 

Interior Space and Comfort

 

The Ford Edge has the more spacious cabin, providing more head, leg, and shoulder room for both front- and rear-seat passengers. Add in the more expansive cargo space that the Edge offers, and it's clearly the better choice for long family road trips.

 

Safety

 

Both SUVs are packed with standard airbags and safety features like child safety locks, anti-lock brake systems, onboard hands-free communications, rearview cameras, electronic stability control, and tire pressure monitoring systems. Here, though, is another area where the introductory Edge offers more standard features than the entry-level Blazer. The Edge adds an anti-theft system, brake assist, and an engine immobilizer, delivering even more protection for your money.
