Ford Edge vs Honda CR-V Engine Specs & Performance

While these two crossovers seem similar from the outside, their engine sizes and output couldn't be any more different. The Edge includes a 2.0L EcoBoost® 4-cylinder, which is turbocharged, while the CR-V includes a 2.4L 4-cylinder as its base level engine. The Edge far exceeds the output of the CR-V, but there's an optional 1.5L turbocharged 4-cylinder to give the CR-V a bit of a boost, but still, it doesn't compare to the output offered by the Edge.

  • The Ford Edge can deliver 245 horsepower and 275 lb-ft of torque with its base level 2.0L EcoBoost® 4-cylinder engine.
  • The CR-V maxes out at 184 horsepower and 180 lb-ft of torque with its base level engine.
  • The optional 1.5L 4-cylinder turbo on the CR-V generates 190 horsepower and 179 lb-ft of torque, which is still way behind the base level power offered with the Edge.

Ford Edge vs Honda CR-V Interior

One of the benefits of having a crossover is the ample cabin space, but the vehicle remains more compact and agile than a full-size SUV. The Ford Edge opens up with 113.9 cubic feet of cabin space, while the Honda CR-V offers 105.9 cubic feet. The difference in space is readily apparent with specific areas offered to the passengers.

  • The Ford Edge offers 42.6 inches of legroom for front-row passengers.
  • The Honda CR-V offers 41.3 inches of front legroom.
  • The Edge includes 40.3 inches of rear headroom vs. 39.2 inches of rear headroom in the CR-V.

Entertainment & Technology Features

The SYNC® screen in the Ford Edge includes voice recognition, which makes it easier and safer to select your media options. Both vehicles include an AM/FM radio, USB and auxiliary inputs for portable media, and Bluetooth® audio streaming and phone capabilities.
