2018 Mazda CX-9 vs. 2018 Ford Edge
Between the Mazda CX-9 vs. Ford Edge, which SUV has the performance and design to really impress Illinois drivers? The Ford Edge may be a capable SUV, but it doesn’t have the horsepower and space that the Mazda CX-9 specs have to offer. Take a look at the two, side-by-side, and then get behind the wheel for a test drive at Biggers Mazda in Elgin – near Streamwood and Bartlett.
The Ford Edge is built with a 2.0L engine with Ford’s signature EcoBoost technology, generating a total of 245 hp and 275 lb-ft of torque. But Mazda’s SKYACTIV® TECHNOLOGY boosts both power and efficiency in its 2.5T 4-cylinder engine, enhanced with Dynamic Pressure Turbo. The result is a 250-hp powerhouse
with 310 lb-ft of torque – surpassing the performance of the Ford Edge by far.
In a Ford Edge vs. Mazda CX-9 comparison, the other key difference is space. Let’s compare the two directly:
- Seating: The Ford Edge can seat five passengers, while the Mazda CX-9 can seat a maximum of seven.
- Design: The smaller Edge has two rows of seating, but the Mazda CX-9 is a three-row SUV.
- Volume: The Mazda CX-9 boasts 135.1 cubic feet of passenger space – over 21 cubic feet of space more than the Edge!
