Over the Edge Performance
With a slight surplus in both price and engine size, the extra little bits help make the Edge a superior-performing SUV next to the CR-V (and at a better value!) At first glance, it may seem like both the Edge and CR-V perform similarly because of how close their engine sizes are. But thanks to Ford’s innovative engineering, the Twinscroll EcoBoost® engine on the Edge vastly outperforms with a horsepower of 250-hp and torque of 280 lb-ft. Additionally, the CR-V only uses a Continuously Variable Transmission, while the Edge’s 8-speed automatic transmission gives you more range and performance variability, especially when paired with the SelectShift gear changer with steering wheel controls. Overall, the Ford Edge takes the crown as the better performing SUV.
