Ford Edge vs Honda CR-V Performance

The Ford Edge offers you a choice between two engines that are both powerful and exciting. The first option is a 2.0L EcoBoost® I-4 turbocharged engine that gets up to 250 horsepower and 280 lb-ft of torque.

The second option is a larger 2.7L EcoBoost® V6 powertrain that's capable of producing up to 335 horsepower and 380 lb-ft of torque.

Both of these engines give you a wide range of gears and efficient shifting with an 8-speed automatic transmission with Auto Start-Stop Technology.

The Honda CR-V also offers two engines, but neither one is as powerful as even the base engine on the Ford. Its strongest powertrain is only a 1.5L 4-cylinder engine that gets up to 190 horsepower and 179 lb-ft of torque.

It also doesn't offer as capable of a transmission either. Rather than give you a wide range of gears to get you through tough conditions, the Honda uses a Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) with Sport Mode.

Ford Edge vs Honda CR-V Infotainment System

On top of comfortable space and dependable power, the Ford Edge keeps you entertained and on the right path throughout your drive with a user-friendly infotainment system. An 8-inch touchscreen in your dashboard is the home for the Ford SYNC® 3 system. It offers great features, such as:

  • Apple CarPlay™
  • Android Auto™
  • AppLink®
  • Voice Recognition
  • Bluetooth® Compatibility

A navigation system helps you take the best route to your destination while a built in 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot and the Bluetooth® let you stay in touch through email or hands-free calls wherever you go.

The Honda CR-V also has a Bluetooth® compatible infotainment system that offers Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™. However, its largest screen is just seven inches across. It's also harder to use because only the top trim levels offer voice recognition.
