Kia Sorento vs. Ford Edge: Performance and Towing Power

When it comes to performance, the Kia Sorento and the Ford Edge are bound to appeal to different sorts of drivers, at least in their baseline configurations:

  • Grosse Pointe drivers can easily upgrade the Kia Sorento with a 3.3-Liter engine that’s more capable than the base option in the Edge, without paying much more than the Edge starting price.
  • In order to receive a more powerful engine in the Ford Edge, you’ll have to upgrade all the way to the high-end ST trim, which starts at $42,355 MSRP.
  • The Kia Sorento can tow up to 5,000 pounds when properly equipped. The Ford Edge can tow just 3,500 pounds when it’s fully upgraded.

Kia Sorento vs. Ford Edge: Safety Features

When you’re choosing a family vehicle, most St. Clair Shores and Sterling Heights drivers agree that safety is one of the most important factors to consider.

  • Both the 2019 Ford Edge and the 2019 Kia Sorento were awarded a 5-star overall safety score by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, but only the Sorento was named as a Top Safety Pick+ by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.
  • The 2019 Edge has not yet been evaluated by this agency, but the 2018 model didn’t receive any special designation. What’s the main difference in this mid-size SUV comparison?
  • The available Kia Sorento driver-assistance emergency braking systems were rated as superior by the NHTSA, while those in the 2018 Ford Edge were rated as basic.
  • This year’s Ford Edge does offer a greater number of safety features in its baseline trim, but when these models are upgraded, the offerings in the 2019 Kia Sorento, including a Surround View Camera you won’t find in the Edge, give it a strong advantage over its rival.
