2018 Ford Edge Lineup vs 2018 Kia Sorento Lineup: Power Ratings, Fuel Efficiency Ratings and Cargo Space

Ford is so well known for so many things, that sometimes some things fall through the cracks. One of those things is the fact that Ford routinely offers its customers multiple engine choices for all new Ford cars, trucks and SUVs. The 2018 Ford Edge is no different, with an engine lineup consisting of three diverse and capable engines. The 2018 Kia Sorento offers only a pair of engine choices.

Those three new Ford Edge engines also offer far better power ratings than what’s offered by the new Kia Sorento’s engine lineup. More specifically, the 2018 Edge’s standard engine produces 245 horsepower and 275 pound-feet of torque while it’s most powerful engine produces 315 horsepower and 350 pound-feet of torque. The 2018 Sorento’s standard engine produces a mere 185 horsepower and 178 pound-feet of torque while it’s other available engine produces just 290 horsepower and 252 pound-feet of torque. That difference in power is made even more astonishing by the fact that the maximum city gas mileage ratings for the two lineups are identical. And to top it all off, the 2018 Ford Edge lineup offers a higher maximum highway gas mileage rating than the 2018 Kia Sorento lineup.

That brings us to cargo space. The new Ford Edge lineup holds a rather significant advantage over the new Kia Sorento lineup in terms of cargo space when all the seats are in place. When all the seats are folded down, the cargo space offerings of the two lineups are as close as they can possibly be without being identical.
