With many compelling models to choose from, settling on your next Ford SUV can be a tall order. Luckily, Big West Ford is here to take the guesswork out of deciding between two beloved offerings in the 2021 Edge and Escape. If you're based in or around Edmonton, Alberta, get to know this pair of SUVs below before visiting our dealership for a closer look at our new Ford Edge and Escape inventory.
2021 Ford Edge
The Edge is one of the most popular mid-size SUVs on the market, and for more than a few reasons. This two-row model comfortably accommodates five passengers in a cabin that's understated and easy on the eyes all at once. The 2021 Edge is great for daily commuting and lengthy road trips, while its roomy interior, foldable rear seats, and built-in storage compartments combine for class-competitive cargo capacity.
This Ford model also makes easy work of staying connected on the go, thanks to a sprawling 12-inch infotainment touchscreen that houses a Sync 4A interface and Apple CarPlay integration. A Wi-Fi hotspot also comes in handy on trips with the family in tow. In addition to its extensive advanced technology and Ford Co-Pilot360 safety suite, the 2021 Edge is thrifty on fuel, netting a combined 9.8 L/100km with standard front-wheel drive and just 10.0 with available all-wheel drive.
2021 Ford Escape
Those in the market for a compact crossover may prefer the 2021 Ford Escape. Its sleek, curvy design gives it a more car-like appearance on the outside, while class-competitive cargo space, comfortable seating materials, and an elegantly arranged dash highlight the Escape's interior. As far as advanced technology is concerned, this new Ford crossover packs plenty of it, beginning with its comprehensive Co-Pilot360 safety and driver-assist suite. The 2021 Escape also covers your connectivity needs, with all but one of its trims including an 8-inch touchscreen with a user-friendly Sync 3 interface and Android Auto and Apple CarPlay integration.
Whether you choose standard front-wheel drive, available all-wheel drive, or either of its two hybrid configurations, the new Ford Escape will keep you from becoming too frequent a customer at the gas station. Indeed, this compact crossover is a thrifty one, netting a combined fuel economy of less than 8 L/100km with its base four-cylinder engine and front-wheel drive system.
