How does the Nissan Murano compare to the Ford Edge?

Compare the Nissan Murano and Ford Edge

Nissan Murano and Ford Edge are mid-size SUVs known for their sterling capability credentials, refined rides, advanced safety commitments, and inviting, comfortable interiors, home to the latest technologies. However, when it comes to the nuances, Nissan Murano pulls ahead in ways Ford Edge doesn't. See what we mean here at Jim Keras Nissan -- our SUV experts have made comparing both models easy.



Between them, Nissan Murano is a better accelerator than Ford Edge, not to mention a smoother operator on the roads in and around Collierville. A 3.5-liter V6 engine comes standard, ready to produce 260 horsepower and 240 pound-feet of torque and paired with an Xtronic CVT. Ford Edge features a slightly less powerful 250-horsepower engine, and it's mated to an eight-speed auto, a transmission more likely to search for gears in Southaven traffic.



Though both SUVs may be similarly equipped, Nissan Murano is more comprehensive when it comes to keeping your Barlett TN drive-time secure, offering features Ford Edge doesn't. For one, an Intelligent Around View Monitor is available with a step up to the SV trim, making it easy to keep an eye on your driving environment. Secondly, Traffic Sign Recognition comes available in SL and standard in Platinum, keeping you apprised of local rules. Neither an intelligent around-view monitor nor a traffic sign recognition system is offered in Ford Edge.


Nissan Murano is more accommodating for long Olive Branch TN trips than Ford Edge. Heated and cooled front seats come standard in its Platinum trim, while leather seats, rear-seat heating, and a heated steering wheel are standards in SL and Platinum. Moreover, dual-zone automatic temperature control is standard. In Ford Edge, however, front-seat cooling and heated rear seats are only ever available, leather seats only come standard in ST, a heated steering wheel only comes available in the SEL trim and nowhere else, and to get dual-zone auto temp control, you have to graduate to SEL.



Nissan Murano is better-equipped tech-wise than Ford Edge. A NissanConnect 8-inch touchscreen with voice recognition comes standard across the lineup, as do Apple CarPlay and Android Auto for smartphone integration, 4 USB ports to keep devices energized, and SiriusXM and HD Radio for expanded entertainment options on the road to Cordova. Finally, a Nissan door-to-door navigation system with premium traffic is standard in SL and Platinum for finding your way around Lakeland. To get a similar 8-inch SYNC 3 system in Ford Edge, you have to step up to the SEL trim. You can only get Apple and Android mobile phone support and navigation with that system, only up to 2 USB ports are available, and HD Radio only comes standard in Titanium and ST.
