Ever since bursting onto the scene over 10 years ago, the Ford Edge has been the cream of the crossover SUV crop. The new Ford Edge continues that streak by continuing to dominate its class thanks to powerful and efficient engine options, a spacious and feature-filled interior and unmatched cargo capacity.
But we need to be able to present sufficient evidence in order to claim that the new Edge is the best of the best when it comes to crossover SUVs. And we’re going to do just that with this 2017 Ford Edge versus 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee head-to-head model comparison. When it’s all said and done, you’ll see the 2017 Edge is the perfect choice for anyone in the market for a new crossover SUV.

The New Ford Edge Offers More Torque, Better Fuel Efficiency and More Passenger and Cargo Space
