2016 Ford Edge vs 2016 Nissan Murano near Chickasha, OK
Which Crossover is Best for You?
Crossovers must be designed with finesse – with the perfect balance of size, power, and convenience. At David Stanley Ford, we think creating the perfect crossover truly is an art and that the 2016 Edge has really upped the ante. For that reason, we’re not afraid to pit it against any other crossover in the segment, so we’ve created the 2016 Ford Edge vs the 2016 Nissan Murano near Chickasha, OK, comparison to prove it. With the Edge’s powerful yet efficient engine and ample cargo space, our money is on our very own Ford crossover.
SUVs get slowed down by their weight – it’s just a fact. So, to improve acceleration, they’re loaded up with huge V8 engines to compensate, which often guzzle gas. With crossovers, you don’t have to worry about that thanks to their athletic builds and smaller, peppy engines. The Edge 2.0T is motivated by either a 2.0-liter 4-cylinder or a 3.5-liter V6, depending on what you prefer. The 4-cylinder is capable of achieving 20/30/24 MPG city/hwy/combined1, great numbers for a crossover, and it can still manage a 3,500-lb. towing capacity2, which is a pretty mighty feat. The Murano doesn’t give you any versatility in that regard, your only option being a 3.5-liter V6 that does get a healthy fuel-efficiency, clocking in at 21/28/24 MPG city/hwy/combined3, but offers an incredibly meager 1,500-lb. towing capacity4, so you might have to leave your boat behind.
The differences become more obvious between the 2016 Ford Edge vs the 2016 Nissan Murano near Chickasha, OK, as we continue on with the comparison. When it comes to loading up the car, we need to have ample room for passengers as well as cargo. The 2016 Edge provides 39.2 cubic ft. of cargo space5, so even with all five seats filled you can fit backpacks, groceries, and other necessities in without making anyone feel cramped. The Murano just doesn’t provive as much space behind the second row, only offering 32.1 cubic ft. of space6 – that could seriously put a dent in how much sports gear you can carry. When you’ve got to move your adult teen into their dorm, bringing all of their accumulated possessions is pretty easy with the 73.4 cubic ft. of room5 the Edge provides, while, unfortunately, you may have to second trip if you opt for the Murano because it only provides 67 cubic ft. of space6 with all of the seats flat.
David Stanley Ford has definitely declared a winner in this comparison between the 2016 Ford Edge vs the 2016 Nissan Murano near Chickasha, OK. The Ford Edge is a lot more than engines and cargo space, though, it also provides an excellent telematics system and peace of mind with its array of safety features.
