How the 2022 Ford Edge in Vauxhall, NJ, Outshines the 2022 Subaru Outback

Determining which SUV you'd like to purchase or lease next might seem like a challenging task at first with all the options on the market. However, when you get a better idea of all that the new 2022 Ford Edge has to offer, you'll see why this model should be near the top of your list. To further emphasize why you should consider selecting the Ford Edge over rival SUVs, Maplecrest Ford is putting it up against another popular competitor, the 2022 Subaru Outback.


Examining Engine Lineups

  • The 2022 Ford Edge near Newark, NJ, sports a standard turbocharged four-cylinder engine that proudly pushes out 250 horsepower, providing this midsize SUV with plenty of juice. The 2022 Subaru Outback comes standard with a less-enthusiastic four-cylinder that generates 182 horsepower.

  • While the new Subaru Outback offers a livelier optional turbocharged four-cylinder engine, it still struggles to keep up with the Ford Edge. You can opt for a more energetic twin-turbo V6 for this Ford SUV, taking horsepower up to 335 for swifter acceleration and highway passing.

Performance Comparison

  • Every 2022 Ford Edge near Elizabeth, NJ, comes standard with all-wheel drive for better traction and grip in various scenarios, which couples well with the robust engine options this SUV offers. The new Subaru Outback also comes standard with all-wheel drive.

  • While both vehicles provide impressive maximum towing capacities, the new Ford Edge makes pulling heavy weight easier thanks to the high torque it produces. With the standard turbo-four, this Ford SUV produces up to 280 pound-feet of torque, while the base configuration of the new Outback only delivers 176 pound-feet of torque.

  • If you want a sportier driving experience, you'll appreciate the athletic new Ford Edge ST. This unique trim comes with an upgraded suspension system and a more powerful engine option. Unfortunately, there's no sport-oriented trim package for the new Subaru Outback, only off-road-oriented options.

Interior Differences

  • Each SUV flaunts a well-built cabin, but the new Ford Edge offers upscale amenities in lower trims, like synthetic leather upholstery on the SEL models. The new Subaru Outback reserves lavish amenities and upgrades for the higher trim levels.

  • When your loved ones get into the second row of your new Ford Edge, they'll have plenty of legroom to stretch out. This Ford model boasts up to 40.6 inches of legroom in the second row, more than what the new Subaru Outback provides in its second row.

  • Loading extra cargo with a cabin full of friends and family is easy in the new Ford Edge, as there are 39.2 cubic feet of storage space behind the second row of seats. Inside the new Subaru Outback, you'll find several cubic feet less behind the rear seats, making it harder to load everything you need when hauling passengers in the second row.

Infotainment and Safety Technologies

  • You and your passengers will have no trouble staying virtually connected while on the go in your new Ford Edge near Union, NJ, thanks to the included Wi-Fi hotspot. The new Subaru Outback offers this convenient feature as a costly upgrade, not standard equipment.

  • When you need to make a quick grocery list or check the weather, you can do so effortlessly using the built-in Amazon Alexa feature inside the 2022 Ford Edge. This cutting-edge tech feature is not offered on the new Subaru Outback.

  • The new Ford Edge and Subaru Outback come loaded with advanced safety features for added peace of mind. Although, the Ford SUV comes standard with Ford's MyKey feature that allows you to set audio and speed limits for secondary drivers, something not offered on the Subaru SUV.
