Edge vs. Acadia Engine & Towing
The 2019 Ford Edge and GMC Acadia both feature cruise control and automatic stop-start technology, but that’s where the similarities end in terms of power and handling. The Edge’s Twin-Scroll 2.0L EcoBoost® engine delivers eight-speed automatic transmission, whereas the Acadia only has six-speed automatic transmission. As a result, the Edge’s MPG, horsepower, torque, and hauling capacity are all higher than the Acadia’s specs. You can see this reflected in the table below.
2019 Ford Edge SEL
|Engine||Twin-Scroll 2.0L EcoBoost®|
|Towing Capacity||1,500 lbs.|
2019 GMC Acadia SL
|Towing Capacity||1,000 lbs.|
Edge vs. Acadia Interior & Cargo Space
