2018 Ford Edge vs 2018 Chevrolet Equinox
We see big things in store for the 2018 Ford Edge, which we have right here at Brandon Ford in Tampa, FL. After years of trying to match the popularity of other Ford SUVs like the Ford Explorer, the Ford Expedition and the Ford Escape, the new Ford Edge is ready to reach – and even eclipse – that pinnacle.
We say that not because the 2018 Edge is more powerful, more capable and more efficient than ever before – which it is – but because the new Edge is finally getting the recognition it’s long been due. Previous Ford Edge models would sometimes get lost in the shuffle between the smaller Escape and the larger Explorer and Expedition, but thanks to the 2018 Edge’s multiple updates and upgrades, it’s time has finally come. To show you what we mean, we put together this 2018 Ford Edge versus 2018 Chevrolet Equinox head-to-head model comparison.
