2022 Ford Edge vs. 2022 Toyota Highlander

The 2022 Ford Edge is easily one of the best midsize SUVs on the market. It has excellent performance and fuel economy and many features that make it fun to drive. But is the 2022 Toyota Highlander worth considering? In this article, we’ll look at the two models side-by-side to determine which one you should buy in 2022.

Design & Style

In terms of design, the 2022 Ford Edge and the 2022 Toyota Highlander are renowned for their excellent looks. While both vehicles are available in several different trim levels, each offers a luxurious exterior design that distinguishes it from most other SUVs.

Both vehicles feature plenty of space for passengers and cargo and have a large amount of ground clearance for off-road use. The 2022 Ford Edge features 18-inch wheels with all-season tires, while the 2022 Toyota Highlander comes standard with 19-inch alloy wheels and all-season tires. Both SUVs offer optional 20- or 22-inch alloy wheel packages that provide better traction on wet roads or snow-covered roads than standard alloys (but these options come at an additional cost).

The interior of the 2022 Ford Edge is an excellent place to be. There’s lots of space and well-designed with plenty of storage cubbies. The seats are comfortable, and the materials look good.

The Highlander’s cabin doesn’t have as much space as its rival or even some midsize rivals like the Mazda CX-9; it has less headroom than most of them. We think it looks good inside, but we’re not fans of its infotainment system; it just feels dated compared with what you’ll find in most competitors’ vehicles.

The two interiors are similar regarding the overall design and layout: both offer nice-looking materials that feel upscale and modern without being too flashy (or overpriced).

Technology & Safety

To ensure you’re safe on the road, both SUVs feature several advanced safety features. The Ford Edge has many active safety systems, including adaptive cruise control, lane keep assist, and automatic emergency braking. The 2022 Toyota Highlander’s enhanced safety features include automatic high beams, blind spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert, and lane departure warning.


The 2022 Ford Edge features a 2.7L four-cylinder engine that provides up to 260 horsepower, while the 2022 Toyota Highlander has a 2.7L V6 engine that produces up to 235 horsepower. The Edge’s powertrain is mated to an intelligent 10-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters and dual exhaust outlets in both models.

The 2022 Ford Edge features better EPA estimated fuel economy ratings than its competitor: 26 mpg in the city and 33 mpg on the highway. This means that after 15,000 miles of driving, your Ford Edge will have used fewer gallons of gas than your Toyota Highlander (6 vs. 7).

The Bottom Line

When looking for a midsize SUV, you must know that you can’t go wrong with the 2022 Ford Edge or the 2022 Toyota Highlander. Both vehicles offer excellent performance, fuel economy, and entertainment systems.

When it comes down to it, though, if we had to choose between these two vehicles, we would pick the 2022 Ford Edge because of its superior features. The new SYNC 3 system is more user-friendly than Toyota’s Entune system and provides more options for entertainment while on the road. Additionally, there are more safety features in place on this SUV than in previous models—and that’s saying something considering how safe they already were!
