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.

Edge vs. Acadia Interior & Cargo Space

About the only similarity that the Ford Edge and GMC Acadia share in terms of interior design is that they both come with leather-wrapped steering wheels.

By comparison, the Ford Edge offers ten-way power driver recline and six-way front passenger recline.

In terms of cargo space, the Ford Edge has more trunk space with 39.2 cu.-ft., whereas the GMC Acadia can only boast 12.8 cu.-ft. of trunk space.
