Let's see how the 2015 Nissan Murano stacks up against the Ford Edge.
Nissan Murano Cargo Space versus Ford Edge Cargo Space
It's no wonder the 2015 Murano was awarded "Best-In-Class" for cargo and interior volume. It boasts a large 39.6 cubic feet of space when all seats are in the upright position. Plus, it has a massive 147.7 cubic feet of total volume in the interior. So you'll ride much more comfortably and haul more gear in the 2015 Murano vs. the Ford Edge. The Edge is a very close second when it comes to cargo volume with the seats up at 39.2, but when it comes to total cargo volume, the Edge does not take the "edge", as it only comes in at 147 cubic feet (vs. the Murano's 147.7.)
Murano Engine Compared to Edge Engine
The 2015 Nissan Murano is no slouch in the power department, even though it only offers one engine. Under the hood, you'll find a 3.5L DOHC 24-valve V6 with 260hp. It's paired with a CVT automatic transmission, standard. The Ford Edge offers two engines -- a 2.0L EcoBoost Inline-4 turbocharged with 245hp, and a 2.7L EcoBoost V6 with 315hp. A 6-speed automatic transmission is standard. But, even though the Edge has a higher horsepower V6, fuel efficiency suffers and the V6 only gets an EPA-estimated 18 city/26 highway while the 2015 Nissan Murano comes in at an impressive 21 city/28 highway mpg with all trims.
Exterior and Interior Style
With its sleek, aerodynamic curved features, aggressive nose, and perfectly-sculpted tailgate, the 2015 Nissan Murano is a stunning machine. Its fluid body style says cutting-edge the moment you see it. By contrast, the 2015 Ford Edge remains bulky in the back and doesn't have the flowing exterior grace of the Murano. Inside the well-appointed and luxurious Murano cabin, you get the feel of being in jet's cockpit and are ready to take flight. The Edge, again, has a boxier feel to the dash without the smooth lines and contours of the 2015 Murano.
