Safety

For enhanced safety, the front seat shoulder belts of the Ford Edge are height-adjustable to accommodate a wide variety of driver and passenger heights. A better fit can prevent injuries and the increased comfort also encourages passengers to buckle up. The Jaguar F-Pace doesn’t offer height-adjustable seat belts.

The rear seatbelts optional on the Edge inflate when a collision is detected, helping to spread crash forces over a much larger area of the body and limiting head and neck movement. This can help prevent spinal and internal injuries. The F-Pace doesn’t offer inflatable seatbelts.

The Edge has standard Post Collision Braking, which automatically apply the brakes in the event of a crash to help prevent secondary collisions and prevent further injuries. The F-Pace doesn’t offer a post collision braking system: in the event of a collision that triggers the airbags, more collisions are possible without the protection of airbags that may have already deployed.

Compared to metal, the Edge’s plastic fuel tank can withstand harder, more intrusive impacts without leaking; this decreases the possibility of fire. The Jaguar F-Pace has a metal gas tank.

Both the Edge and the F-Pace have standard driver and passenger frontal airbags, front side-impact airbags, side-impact head airbags, front seatbelt pretensioners, four-wheel antilock brakes, traction control, electronic stability systems to prevent skidding, crash mitigating brakes, daytime running lights, lane departure warning systems, rearview cameras, available all wheel drive and front and rear parking sensors.

Warranty

There are over 18 times as many Ford dealers as there are Jaguar dealers, which makes it much easier should you ever need service under the Edge’s warranty.

Reliability

To reliably power the ignition and other systems and to recharge the battery, the Edge has a standard 175-amp alternator. The F-Pace’s 130-amp alternator isn’t as powerful.

A reliable vehicle saves its owner time, money and trouble. Nobody wants to be stranded or have to be without a vehicle while it’s being repaired. Consumer Reports rates the Edge’s reliability 21 points higher than the F-Pace.

J.D. Power and Associates’ 2018 Initial Quality Study of new car owners surveyed provide the statistics that show that Ford vehicles are better in initial quality than Jaguar vehicles. J.D. Power ranks Ford fifth in initial quality, above the industry average. With 67 more problems per 100 vehicles, Jaguar is ranked 30th, below the industry average.

J.D. Power and Associates’ 2018 survey of the owners of three-year-old vehicles provides the long-term dependability statistics that show that Ford vehicles are more reliable than Jaguar vehicles. J.D. Power ranks Ford 16th in reliability. With 7 more problems per 100 vehicles, Jaguar is ranked 20th.

To lower fuel costs and make buying fuel easier, the Ford Edge uses regular unleaded gasoline (premium recommended for maximum performance). The F-Pace requires premium, which can cost 20 to 55 cents more per gallon.

The Edge has 2.6 gallons more fuel capacity than the F-Pace Diesel’s standard fuel tank (18.5 vs. 15.9 gallons), for longer range between fill-ups.

The Edge has a standard cap-less fueling system. The fuel filler is automatically opened when the fuel nozzle is inserted and automatically closed when it’s removed. This eliminates the need to unscrew and replace the cap and it reduces fuel evaporation, which causes pollution. The F-Pace doesn’t offer a cap-less fueling system.

Brakes and Stopping

For better stopping power the Edge’s standard front brake rotors are larger than those on the F-Pace:

Motor Trend

Suspension and Handling

The Edge’s drift compensation steering can automatically compensate for road conditions which would cause the vehicle to drift from side to side, helping the driver to keep the vehicle straight more easily. The F-Pace doesn’t offer drift compensation steering.

The Edge ST AWD handles at .88 G’s, while the F-Pace S pulls only .85 G’s of cornering force in a Motor Trend skidpad test.

The Edge ST AWD executes Motor Trend’s “Figure Eight” maneuver quicker than the F-Pace R-Sport (26 seconds @ .7 average G’s vs. 26.8 seconds @ .67 average G’s).

Chassis

The Edge is 5.6 inches narrower than the F-Pace, making the Edge easier to handle and maneuver in traffic.

The front grille of the Edge uses electronically controlled shutters to close off airflow and reduce drag when less engine cooling is needed. This helps improve highway fuel economy. The F-Pace doesn’t offer active grille shutters.

The Edge Sport uses computer-generated active noise cancellation to help remove annoying noise and vibration from the passenger compartment, especially at low frequencies. The F-Pace doesn’t offer active noise cancellation.

As tested by Car and Driver, the interior of the Edge Titanium AWD is quieter than the F-Pace S:

Passenger Space

The Edge has 17.9 cubic feet more passenger volume than the F-Pace (113.9 vs. 96).

The Edge has 2.4 inches more front headroom, 2.3 inches more front legroom, 2.6 inches more front shoulder room, 2.8 inches more rear headroom, 3.4 inches more rear legroom and 4.7 inches more rear shoulder room than the F-Pace.

The front step up height for the Edge is 1.7 inches lower than the F-Pace (17.5” vs. 19.2”). The Edge’s rear step up height is 1.8 inches lower than the F-Pace’s (18” vs. 19.8”).

Cargo Capacity

The Edge has a much larger cargo volume with its rear seat up than the F-Pace with its rear seat up (39.2 vs. 33.5 cubic feet). The Edge has a much larger cargo volume with its rear seat folded than the F-Pace with its rear seat folded (73.4 vs. 63.5 cubic feet).

A low lift-over cargo hatch design makes loading and unloading the Edge easier. The Edge’s cargo hatch lift-over height is 29 inches, while the F-Pace’s liftover is 30.5 inches.

The Edge’s cargo area is larger than the F-Pace’s in almost every dimension:

Ergonomics

In case you lock your keys in your vehicle, or don’t have them with you, you can let yourself in using the Edge’s exterior PIN entry system. The F-Pace doesn’t offer an exterior PIN entry system, and its InControl can’t unlock the doors if the vehicle doesn’t have cell phone reception or the driver can’t contact the service.

To shield the driver and front passenger’s vision over a larger portion of the windshield and side windows, the Edge has standard extendable sun visors. The F-Pace doesn’t offer extendable visors.

The Edge (except SE) offers an optional 115-volt a/c outlet on the center console, allowing you to recharge a laptop or run small household appliances without special adapters that can break or get misplaced. The F-Pace doesn’t offer a house-current electrical outlet.

Model Availability

The Edge is available in both front-wheel drive and four-wheel drive configurations. The F-Pace doesn’t offer a two-wheel drive configuration.
