The Kia Sorento is a great sports utility SUV can turn a doubter into a believer. We encourage all of the customers to do their homework and learn about what the Kia Sorento can offer them compared to its rivals. The Ford Edge is a vehicle we often get asked about, and we have compiled a list of ways they stack up against one another.
The Kia Sorento and Ford Edge are very similar when you look at their interior dimensions. While the Edge has the advantage on the second-row seating, the Kia Sorento offers the superior front room. Also, the Kia Sorento has farm more total passenger volume available to it because of the additional available third-row seating. However, the category remains close.
Each vehicle offers a similar transmission, so that is a draw. The Kia Sorento has a 2.4-liter Unleaded I-4 engine, while the Ford Edge comes equipped with a 2.0-liter Intercooled Premium Unleaded I-4. While that might seem like an upgrade initially, keep in mind that the MSRP for the Ford Edge is a bit higher than the Sorento, so you are not getting increased performance baseline. With an upgraded engine for a similar price, each vehicle is evenly matched, but with the added flexibility of the Sorento.
The Kia Sorento has a quiet ride that commands the road. If you are looking for an economical choice, the 2.0T options might interest you. Both vehicles are handsome, with the Kia Sorento leaning towards a luxury look over the sportier Ford Edge. Personal preference matters here.
