Toyota RAV4 vs. Ford Edge: Engine Power & Options

The Ford Edge and Toyota RAV4 are equipped with very different engines. The Edge includes its Twin Scroll 2.0L EcoBoost® 4-cylinder engine at its base level, while the Toyota RAV4 features a 2.5L 4-cylinder engine. Each of these engines come paired with 8-speed automatic transmissions. On top of the turbocharged engine, the Edge includes an additional engine option, while drivers of the RAV4 only get the one engine.

  • The Edge's 2.0L EcoBoost® 4-cylinder engine delivers 245 horsepower and 275 lb-ft of torque.
  • The RAV4's 2.5L 4-cylinder engine maxes out at 203 horsepower and 184 lb-ft of torque.
  • The optional 2.7L V6 EcoBoost®, available with the Edge, produces 335 horsepower and 380 lb-ft of torque.

Ford Edge vs Toyota RAV4 Interior

There's a fairly significant difference with the Edge and RAV4 when it comes to their cabin space. The Edge includes 113.9 cubic feet of space for its five passengers, while the RAV4 is a bit cramped with its 98.9 cubic feet of passenger space in its cabin. The difference in space carries over with individual passenger space and cargo room.

  • The Edge offers 40.2 inches of headroom and 42.6 inches of legroom for front passengers, while the RAV4 includes 37.7 inches of headroom and 41 inches of legroom in the front row.
  • There's 40.3 inches of headroom and 40.6 inches of legroom in the second row of the Edge, while the RAV4 offers 39.5 inches of headroom and 37.8 inches of legroom.
  • The RAV4 offers 37.6 cubic feet of space for cargo that expands to 69.8 cubic feet when the second row is folded.

Style & Appearance

The recent redesign for the Toyota RAV4 is definitely an improvement, but it was designed to blend in and not stand out. The Edge, on the other hand, carries over its prolific style and appearance, with its smooth curves, aggressive front and rear, and sleek and defined grille and front fascia. The 2019 RAV4 tries to emulate the Edge, but nowhere near the size, stature, or powerful presence.
