Nissan Rogue vs. Ford Edge
The Nissan Rogue and the Ford Edge are two great options if you’re looking for a small and affordable SUV. With seating capacity for five in the standard model, you’ve got plenty of room for the whole family. And extra available seating means taking along an extra friend or two is now a possibility. But how do you decide between two great options? Let’s compare them in the two biggest fields: power and technology.
Power & Fuel Economy
The Nissan Rogue offers a 2.5 Liter DOHC 16 Valve 4 Cylinder engine which produces 170 horsepower and 175 lb.-ft. of torque. This engine is paired with an Xtronic Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT). The vehicle comes standard as Front Wheel Drive (FWD), though you can also get it in Intuitive All Wheel Drive. The biggest highlight of this engine configuration is the fuel economy. The Rogue is rated for an EPA-estimated 33 MPG highway and 26 MPG city.
On paper, the Ford Edge looks like a winning option. IT offers three engine options. These include a 2.0 Liter EcoBoost 4 Cylinder engine with a six speed automatic transmission, a 3.5 Liter Ti-VCT V6 engine, and a 2.7 Liter V6 engine. These engine options also come as either Front Wheel Drive (FWD) or All Wheel Drive. The Ford Edge is rated for an EPA-estimated 20 MPG city and 30 MPG highway. So the morning commute from Philadelphia to Lansdale will cost you quite a bit more with the Edge.
The Nissan Rogue offers a nice long list of technology features including Bluetooth hands-free phone system, a rearview monitor, Around View camera, and a premium AM/FM/CD audio system with a 5-inch color display. There’s also technology specifically for safety which includes LED headlights with auto levelizer, Blind Spot Warning, Moving Object Detection, Forward Collision Warning, and Lane Departure Warning. And with the NissanConnect system with Navigation you’ll be connected to all of your favorite mobile apps including Pandora, iHeart Radio, Google, and SiriusXM (with subscription).
On the other hand, the Ford Edge offers only an AM/FM single CD player with SYNC, and an audio input jack in their base model. Not only do you give up plenty of the standard features of the Rogue, but you’ll also have to contend with the SYNC system which is not only not nearly as responsive as the system in the Rogue, but it’s just a bit confusing to use in general.
When you’re looking at different vehicles, you have to be sure to choose the vehicle that’s best for your family. In the competition between the Rogue and the Edge, the Nissan Rogue is clearly the better option. With better fuel economy and a more inclusive technology package, you have everything you need for whatever adventure lies before you—whether it’s escaping evil snowmen or outrunning evil trees.
