What Are the Differences Between the Ford Edge and Honda Passport?
With designs that are similar in size and capability, the Ford Edge sets itself apart in this 2019 Ford Edge vs 2019 Honda Passport comparison with an impressive arsenal of engine options that the all-new Honda Passport cannot match. Ford Edge SE, SEL and Titanium trim levels feature a 245-horsepower 2.0-liter EcoBoost® four-cylinder engine that manufactures 275 pound-feet of torque. Married to an eight-speed SelectShift® automatic transmission with standard Auto Start-Stop technology, the 2.0-liter Ford Edge will earn 22 mpg in the city and 29 mpg on the highway.
Honda Passport entries are equipped with a 280-horsepower 3.5-liter i-VTEC® V-6 engine that makes 262 pound-feet of torque and is also employed by the 2019 Honda Pilot. Paired with a nine-speed automatic transmission, the Honda Passport is expected to deliver an impressive performance. While Honda Passport fuel economy specs have not yet been revealed, the Honda Pilot with the same powertrain under the hood earns 20 mpg in the city and 27 mpg on the highway – numbers that fall short of the entry-level Ford Edge.
An added element of the 2019 Ford Edge spec sheet that will make it stand out from the Passport is a second powertrain option. Track-ready Ford Edge ST entries employ a power-hungry 335-horsepower 2.7-liter EcoBoost® V-6 engine that will shell out a herculean 380 pound-feet of torque. Armed with the eight-speed SelectShift® automatic transmission and standard Intelligent AWD, the Ford Edge ST will still achieve 19 mpg in the city and 26 mpg on the highway.
