2017 Ford Edge
2017 Nissan Murano
2017 Ford Edge vs. 2017 Nissan Murano
The 2017 Ford Edge gives Bradley and Peotone drivers access to powerful motors, impressive safety features, and the kind of advanced technology features Nissan just can’t compete with. To demonstrate the superiority of this dynamic crossover, we’ve compared it to the 2017 Nissan Murano. When it comes down delivering the amenities that Terry’s Ford drivers really crave, there’s no question which vehicle does it better and which one our neighbors prefer.
The new Ford Edge gives drivers access to advanced safety features they won’t find on the Nissan Murano:
- 2017 Ford Edge: Options like inflatable rear safety belts to help diffuse the force of a collision while Lane Departure Warning helps to provide an additional layer of protection for drivers on busy roadways. In addition, the 911 Assist feature, when paired with the optional GPS navigation system, can contact emergency services and tell them where the vehicle is should it be involved in an accident where the airbags deploy.
- 2017 Nissan Murano: The Nissan Murano cannot be equipped with inflatable rear safety belts or Lane Departure Warning. And, without a GPS response system, if the vehicle is involved in an accident and the driver cannot call for help, it could take emergency responders far longer to arrive – if they locate the vehicle at all.
The Ford Edge delivers more power than the Nissan Murano, with the choice of three dynamic motors that each offers a more potent driving experience:
- 2017 Ford Edge: The Edge is equipped with a standard 2.0L turbocharged 4-cylinder engine that delivers 245-hp and 275 lb.-ft. of torque while the available 3.5L DOHC V6 makes 280-hp and 250 lb.-ft. of torque, and the 2.7L V6 engine provides 315-hp and 350 lb.-ft. of peak torque.
- 2017 Nissan Murano: The Murano’s 3.5L DOHC V6 powerplant generates just 260-hp and 240 lb.-ft. of torque, putting it significantly below the capabilities of the Ford Edge.
The Ford offers a number of features that make it a more efficient, environmentally friendly ride while adding another level of convenience for busy drivers:
- 2017 Ford Edge: Available on selected models, the Start/Stop system shuts the engine off when the vehicle stops, saving both fuel and excess emissions. Drivers can also take advantage of the capless fueling system, which opens automatically when the fuel nozzle is inserted, closing again when it is removed. This feature not only prevents the inconvenience of a lost fuel cap but can help curb pollution and fuel loss through evaporation.
- 2017 Nissan Murano: The Nissan Murano doesn’t offer an optional Start/Stop system to save fuel, nor does the vehicle have a capless fuel system, which can lead to higher fuel consumption and increased emissions over time.
The Edge has greater capacity for passengers, cargo, and gear than the Murano as well, making it perfect for active families on the go:
- 2017 Ford Edge: The interior of the Ford Edge gives passengers 113.9 cubic feet of interior space, which translates into 2.1-inches more front legroom and 1.9-inches of rear legroom than the Nissan. This large interior also delivers as much as 73.4 cubic feet of usable cargo space with the seats folded flat.
- 2017 Nissan Murano: The smaller Murano delivers just 108.1 cubic feet of interior passenger capacity and only 67 cubic feet of potential interior cargo space. The Murano also lacks towing power and is capable of just 1,500 pounds of potential towing ability versus the Ford’s available 3,500 pounds.
The Ford makes driving fun with a long list of standard and available conveniences designed to add value and convenience to the ride:
- 2017 Ford Edge: Loading the Ford is simple with an available foot-activated rear liftgate that allows drivers to open the rear hatch without fishing for keys. Other features like the available speed-sensitive windshield wipers, automatic high-beams, auto-dimming side-view mirrors, and automated parking allow drivers to concentrate on what’s important, while the Edge takes care of the rest.
- 2017 Nissan Murano: The Nissan Murano lacks a hands-free rear liftgate, speed-sensitive wipers, or automatic high-beams. Although the Nissan does offer an auto-dimming rearview mirror, the side mirrors do not dim. The Murano does not offer an automatic parking feature.
