Ford Edge vs. Nissan Murano


The back and forth between versatile and athletic SUVs is always a lively debate for folks around Glen Allen, Ashland, and Short Pump. If you're currently trying to decide which SUV best fits your daily needs before selecting a new model, then check out the following Ford Edge vs. Nissan Murano comparison.

Both the 2019 Ford Edge and 2019 Nissan Murano deserve a long look from SUV shoppers but which one offers superior performance, infotainment, and interior space? Richmond Ford West put together the following article with that exact question in mind!

Ford Edge vs Nissan Murano Engine Specs

When you're considering a variety of SUVs for your daily commutes, it helps to compare them based on their strong traits, such as precise handling and sporty acceleration. Luckily, both the Ford Edge and Nissan Murano provide a thrilling performance for their drivers.

The Edge, for example, has two engine options. First up, there's the 2.0L EcoBoost® 4-cylinder, which produces 245 horsepower and 275 lb-ft of torque. If you're looking for a little more kick, there's the high-powered 2.7L EcoBoost® V6, which boasts 335 horsepower and 380 lb-ft of torque.

In comparison, the Nissan Murano has just one engine offering: a 3.5L V6 that puts out 260 horsepower and 240 lb-ft of torque.

Given the lack of options and meager power in the Nissan Murano, the Ford Edge wins this category due to its engine options:  

  • There's the standard 2.0L EcoBoost® 4-cylinder, which produces 245 horsepower and 275 lb-ft of torque.
  • For more power, choose the 2.7L EcoBoost® V6 that delivers 335 horsepower and 380 lb-ft of torque.

Ford Edge vs Nissan Murano Interior

Having a configurable and spacious cabin makes road trips and everyday travel simpler, which is why the 2019 Edge and 2019 Murano tout versatile interiors.

If we start with legroom, the 2019 Ford Edge offers 42.6 inches in the front row and 40.6 inches in the second row. These numbers exceed the Nissan Murano, which offers just 40.5 inches up front and 38.7 inches in the rear.

There's a noticeable gap in second-row passenger space all around, with the Edge sporting 57.5 inches of hip room and 60.5 inches of shoulder room, while the Nissan Murano touts just 55.2 inches of hip room and 58.8 inches of second-row shoulder room.

Overall, the Ford Edge total passenger volume of 113.9 cubic feet simply outdoes the 108.1 cubic feet in the Nissan Murano.

So, the Ford Edge again gets the win due to the following dimensions:  

  • 42.6 inches of front-row legroom
  • 40.6 inches of second-row legroom
  • 57.5 inches of second-row hip room
  • 60.5 inches of second-row shoulder room
  • 113.9 cubic feet of total passenger volume

Infotainment Technology

Getting an SUV with cutting-edge infotainment is a priority for most, and the Ford Edge and Nissan Murano deliver in this category.

The Ford Edge, for example, has the user-friendly SYNC® 3 system, which makes it simple to play music or access navigation. There's also the B&O™ Premium Sound System by Bang & Olufsen, which creates reverberating and enchanting noise throughout the cabin.

The Nissan Murano, on the other hand, doesn't offer a connective technology system as user-friendly and modern as SYNC® 3.

So, the Ford Edge again wins the section thanks to the following features:

  • SYNC® 3
  • B&O™ Premium Sound System by Bang & Olufsen
