The crossover SUV craze has hit the communities of Jasper, Fayette, and Cullman, AL! Are you ready to get behind the wheel of a vehicle with plenty of cargo space, maximum utility, and a high-visibility ride? The 2022 Ford Edge is a midsize SUV, and the 2022 Chevy Equinox is a compact SUV; however, they meet similar needs.
Which is better for you? This Ford Edge vs. Chevy Equinox comparison from Bill Penney Ford will help you make that determination.

You may be wondering whether the Ford Edge or Chevy Equinox will get you up to speed faster. The Edge has the edge here—pun intended. The base Equinox runs on a 1.5L turbocharged 4-cylinder engine that produces up to 170 horsepower and 203 lb-ft of torque, giving you solid acceleration for daily driving.
With the Edge’s standard twin-scroll 2.0L EcoBoost® I-4 engine, you’ll feel a bit more pep in your step with 250 horsepower and 280 lb-ft of torque. With that extra power, you can pull away from a stop or merge with highway traffic quicker than you would in the Equinox.
For even more power, opt for the Edge’s available twin-turbocharged 2.7L EcoBoost® V6 engine, which churns out a whopping 335 horsepower and 380 lb-ft of torque.
As you cruise around town, you’ll want to make sure you and your passengers are completely comfortable. One of the best ways to understand the type of comfort an SUV can provide is to look at its cabin measurements.
In the 2022 Edge, you’ll be treated to 113.9 cubic feet of passenger space, while the Equinox provides closer quarters with 103.5 cubic feet of passenger room. That difference is highlighted in the following dimensions:

|FRONT HEADROOM||40.2 in.||40 in.|
|REAR HEADROOM||40.3 in.||38.5 in.|
|FRONT LEGROOM||42.6 in.||40.9 in.|
|REAR LEGROOM||40.6 in.||39.9 in.|
As you can see, the Edge has more headroom and legroom all around, so passengers have the best seat in the house no matter where they sit.
To help ensure that you enjoy a ride filled with peace of mind, both the 2022 Edge and Equinox are designed with a suite of active safety features. Standard technology you’ll find in the Edge includes:
In the Chevy Equinox, you’ll get comparable systems for emergency braking and lane-keeping. But, if you want access to a blind spot monitor, you’ll have to upgrade to a higher trim level.
