Dodge Journey vs. Ford Edge

If you’re shopping in the midsize market, you have found that it is loaded with options. The team at Fred Martin Superstore thought we would compare some of the vehicles within that segment to help make your choice a little easier.

Dodge Journey Power & Handling

The Dodge Journey is powered by a smooth 2.4-liter 4-cylinder engine that generates 173 horsepower at 6,000 rpm and 166 lb-ft of torque at 4,000 rpm. The Journey offers drivers a tow rating of 1,000 pounds, and with the standard Trailer Sway Control with Electronic Stability Control drivers will have the utmost confidence when hauling. Thanks to dual Variable Valve Timing and automatic transmission, the Journey charges ahead with 25 highway mpg and a driving range of up to 500 miles on one tank of gas. Dodge Journey features a fully independent suspension with MacPherson struts in the front and a multilink suspension in the rear to help provide a responsive, smooth, and quiet ride.

Ford Edge Power & Handling

The Ford Edge comes with a twin-turbo 2.7-liter EcoBoost engine. This engine features a light, compact graphite iron engine block, and aluminum heads. The 2.7 EcoBoost engine is rated at 335 horsepower and 380 lb.-ft. of torque. The Edge comes standard with Auto Start-Stop Technology can help reduce fuel consumption and vehicle emissions during city driving.

Dodge Journey Features & Design

Inside the Dodge Journey, you will drive like a king with the six-way power driver seat that offers four-way power lumbar support. Passengers will love that both second and third-row seats have a reclining feature. You can use the Tilt ‘n Slide second-row seating to gain one-handed access to the third row. The Journey offers outstanding cargo room with the second-row 60/40 split-folding seats that add tremendous versatility. Adding even more flexibility, you can slide the second-row seat back and forth. Both second-and third-row passengers enjoy stadium-style seating. Bring the team to the tailgate with available second-row in-floor storage that doubles as a cooler. Just add the ice.

Ford Edge Features & Design

The Edge is a five-passenger SUV with no third-row seating. Rear passengers can enjoy a generous 40.6 inches of legroom. The ST’s front seats have more pronounced bolstering for holding their occupants through quick corners. It also has its own digital instrument cluster. Luggage space measures 39.2 cubic feet behind the rear seats. This area increases to 73.4 cubic feet when the rear seats are folded.


As you can see, both of these midsize SUVs are adequate, but the Dodge Journey offers more room for friends to join and more toys.
