Are you looking for a new crossover? This segment is a crowded one, which can make it difficult to decide which model is right for you. To help make this easier, we’ve put together a comparison of the 2019 Honda Passport and 2019 Ford Edge.
When it comes to cargo space, the 2019 Passport takes the lead over the 2019 Edge. The Edge offers 39.2 cubic feet behind its second-row seats. This number grows to 73.4 cubic feet when the rear seats are folded down. While these are solid numbers, the Passport just offers more space.
Performance & Capabilities
Under the hood of these two models, you will find two very different engines. The 2019 Edge comes standard with a 2.0-liter EcoBoost® turbocharged four-cylinder engine that puts out 250 horsepower and 280 lb-ft of torque. This power is significantly less than the 2019 Passport’s standard engine. The Passport is equipped with a 3.5-liter V6 engine that produces 280 horsepower and 262 lb-ft of torque.
If you’re looking to tow gear for your next adventure, the Passport will likely suit you better. It has a maximum towing capacity of 5,000 pounds when properly equipped, whereas the Edge can only tow up to 3,500 pounds.
Both the 2019 Passport and 2019 Edge come well-equipped with safety technologies. In fact, they both come standard with some of the more advanced options that other competitors don’t.
The Edge comes standard with a Blind Spot Information System with Cross-Traffic Alert, a Lane Keeping System, Pre-Collision Assist with Automatic Emergency Braking, and a rearview camera. For the Honda Passport, you will find similar technologies with Honda Sensing®, including a Road Departure Mitigation System, a Lane Keeping Assist System, and a Collision Mitigation System. One thing it offers as standard that the Edge doesn’t is Adaptive Cruise Control, which allows you to maintain a set distance between you and the vehicles in front of you when you’re using cruise control on the highway.
