2016 Nissan Murano vs 2016 Ford Edge
In 2015, Nissan touched down with its all-new Murano that sported a futuristic design that immediately left a wake for all other crossovers to either follow or get swallowed up in. Now in its 2016 year model, the Nissan Murano continues to size up even the toughest of competitors. A popular choice for families by and large, the Ford Edge is strong choice but not the victor as we take the 2016 Nissan Murano vs 2016 Ford Edge.
Families, empty-nesters, and drivers looking to upgrade to something larger than a car have turned their attention to the white hot crossover SUV segment. The 2016 Nissan Murano and Ford Edge both provide seating for up to five passengers and don’t bother with cramming in a third row that has limited legroom; instead, they take a different approach by opening up cargo-carrying opportunities.
With the seats in place, both vehicles are able to provide an approximated 39 cu.ft. of cargo space, but with the seats folded down, the Murano increases to a maximum of 69.9 cu.ft. One category that Ford Edge does excel in is towing; able to tow up to 3,500 lbs when properly equipped and even though the Murano does offer a more powerful engine upgrade, its ability remains at 1,500 lbs.
