    It is no secret that there are a lot of midsize SUVs on the market, so in order for one to make any kind of impression, there has to be something about it that really stands out. Whether that is an extraordinarily spacious interior or a remarkably powerful engine, some aspect of any really great midsize SUV needs to grab your attention and never let go. When looking at the 2019 Ford Edge vs. 2019 Chevy Blazer, for example, you cannot help but notice the incredible engines and excellent features the Ford Edge has to offer.

    While the 2019 Chevy Blazer is a fine vehicle in its own right, there are just too many great things about the 2019 Ford Edge that push it ahead. For example, the Blazer offers up to 22/27 mpg city and highway fuel economy – but the Edge beats that with up to 22/29 mpg in the city and on the highway. That is just one example, but pretty much down the line, the Ford Edge has the Blazer beat: a more powerful engine, a more spacious interior, and tech features that are unsurpassed.

    If you are looking for a midsize SUV that edges out the competition, then the 2019 Ford Edge is the way to go. At Kings Ford, we have the Edge and other Ford SUVs for you to look at and choose from today. Come and see how much fun it can be to buy a new or used vehicle.

  • Performance

    Although a lot of people might focus on engine power and performance mostly when looking at a high-performance sports car or a heavy-duty pickup, they are still important factors when considering an SUV. Since SUVs are such large vehicles, how well they drive and handle will depend a lot on the kind of power the engine has to push them forward and keep them going. Things like horsepower and torque are still crucial for a midsize SUV, even if you might not spend a lot of time bragging about it.

    The 2019 Ford Edge was designed by the Ford Performance Team, so it should be no surprise that it has a lot of power-packed under the hood. There are two engines available for the Edge, starting with a 2.0L EcoBoost engine that offers up to 250 hp and 280 lb.-ft. of torque. If you want more power, then you can choose a 2.7L EcoBoost V6 engine that provides up to 335 hp and 380 lb.-ft. of torque for a truly amazing performance.

    There are also two engines available for the 2019 Chevy Blazer, but they both fall short of what the Edge has to offer. The starting option is a 2.5L 4-cylinder engine that offers up to 193 hp and 188 lb.-ft. of torque, both of which are less than the Edge’s starting engine. Then there is an available 3.6L V6 engine, which provides up to 308 hp and 270 lb.-ft. of torque. As you can see, the more powerful Chevy engine offers more horsepower but less torque than Ford’s starting engine, and cannot compete with the more powerful offering from Ford.

    Fuel economy with an SUV is very important. While in the past they were universally heralded as gas-guzzlers, a great deal of time and effort has gone into designing SUVs that offer far greater gas mileage. As such, you expect a modern SUV to let you go a lot further on a full tank of gas.

    Since both of these vehicles have two engines available, we will look at the fuel economy for both of them to see how they compare. The 2019 Ford Edge’s starting 2.0L EcoBoost engine can get up to an estimated 22 mpg in the city and 29 mpg on the highway with front-wheel drive. The more powerful 2.7L EcoBoost engine has a fuel economy of up to 19 mpg in the city and 26 mpg on the highway and is only available with all-wheel drive.

    By comparison, the starting 2.5L engine in the 2019 Chevy Blazer gets an estimated 22 mpg in the city and 27 mpg on the highway. The more powerful 3.6L engine gets an estimated 20 mpg in the city and 26 mpg on the highway, but that’s with standard front-wheel drive. If you choose a 3.6L engine and all-wheel drive, to compare with the Ford Edge’s engine, your estimated gas mileage goes down to 18 mpg in the city and 25 mpg on the highway. The differences may be relatively minor, but ultimately the Edge has better-estimated fuel economy, and that can certainly add up over time.

  • Cargo Space

    When you choose an SUV, you typically want one so that you can pack a lot into it. After all, you can fit four or five people into a large sedan, but you do not get anywhere near the same level of interior cargo space compared to an SUV. Even a midsize SUV should still give you a lot of room for loading up packages from shopping, supplies for a weekend of camping, or food and beverages for a day of tailgating and cooking outside.

    The 2019 Ford Edge offers up to 73.4 cu. ft. of interior cargo space inside behind the front seats, and up to 39.2 cu. ft. of space behind the rear seats. By comparison, the 2019 Chevy Blazer gives you just 64.2 cu. ft. of interior space behind the front seat, which is substantially less than the Edge. You also get just 30.5 cu. ft. of space behind the rear seat, which is also quite a bit less than the Edge offers. If you like to load up your vehicle and need a lot of cargo space, then that will make a huge difference in how much you can fit.

  • Safety

    Safety is always one of the most important aspects of any vehicle and something you should compare carefully when considering your options. The large size and power of a midsize SUV can make it a lot safer than some other vehicles on the road, but you still want to find great safety features in them. While both the 2019 Ford Edge and the 2019 Chevy Blazer have excellent safety features, what really sets the Edge apart is what it has standard compared to available options.

    You see, the Edge comes with Ford’s impressive Co-Pilot 360 package standard in every single model, regardless of trim level. This includes a rearview camera, as well as top-level features like a blind spot information system, cross-traffic alert, and a lane-keep system. Additional features like pre-collision assist and automatic emergency braking, as well as auto high-beam headlamps, are also included standard in every 2019 Ford Edge.

    By comparison, these kinds of impressive features are available options in a lot of trim levels of the 2019 Chevy Blazer. In fact, safety features like lane-keep assist and blindside zone alerts are not even available on the lowest trim level of the Blazer. At some higher trim levels, these kinds of safety features do become available options, but they will cost you more. These options are included only with the highest and most expensive trim level, the Premier. While the fact that Chevy offers them at all is good, we think that the safety and security of your friends and loved ones is not something you should have to pay extra for – obviously, Ford agrees.
