If you are looking for a midsize SUV that simply edges out in terms of space, then the 2022 Ford Edge is one to include in your list. On top of that promise, you will also enjoy a noteworthy assortment of technologies and safety features as standard. Swift acceleration is guaranteed as well.
That of the 2022 Chevrolet Traverse carries plenty of space both for passengers and cargo. It also gets a refreshed exterior look, and a zippy V6 engine.
Design & Style
Looking at both ride's exteriors, you will notice that they come close when it comes to overall dimensions outside. The Traverse may be a few inches wider and longer than its Ford counterpart, but when you consider cargo space, things say otherwise. The Edge starts with a base trunk configuration of a little over 39 cubic feet, while the Pathfinder does not even meet half of that at only 23 cubic feet when all rows of seats are in use.
Taller passengers will definitely root for the Ford Edge 2022 version since there is plenty of room to move around inside. The 2022 Chevrolet Traverse tries hard to make the interior attractive, but it does not really compare to the modern fashion projected by its Ford counterpart. It has some soft touches here and there, but there are plenty of hard and cheap plastics inside that makes it quite a disappointment. It sits eight, a configuration you can achieve if you leave the back seats to kids.
Technology & Safety
One of the first things that will attract your attention when you get inside the 2022 Ford Edge is its 12-inch vertical touch screen. This is used in consonance with the SYNC 4A Software, an interface whose flawless operations are praised by users. It is gifted with six speakers, and aside from smartphone integration, also comes standard with Amazon Alexa. Included in the list of safety amenities for the ride are blind spot monitoring, rear cross traffic alert, pedestrian detection and the MyKey feature for secondary drivers.
Coming with a seven-inch touch screen display for its user-friendly infotainment system, the Traverse gets some praise for its responsive set-up. It has six USB ports, six speakers, Bluetooth, and Wi-Fi hot spot, as well as integrates Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. For safety, it offers the ones listed above, but it falls short when it comes to providing a comprehensive list of features in this regard.
The Edge's four-engine setup gives it a rating of 250 horsepower, and that rating is understandable despite the fact that its Chevy counterpart gets 310 horsepower for having a V6 base configuration.
The Bottom Line
Both rides are charming and sporty outside, but it is quite obvious that with all other aspects compared, you will love the 2022 Ford Edge over the 2022 Chevrolet Traverse.
