INFINITI QX50 vs Ford Edge
For many drivers, it’s important for their cars to be able to handle longer drives, so they may look to vehicles with excellent fuel economy. If you’re considering the INFINITI QX50 vs Ford Edge, you’ll be happy to know they both offer excellent fuel economy. The Ford Edge gets an EPA-estimated 21 city/29 highway MPG.
However, if you want to get the most out of a single tank of gas, you’ll want to take a closer look at the INFINITI QX50, as it gets 23 city/29 highway.* This is thanks in part to a 2.0L VC Turbo I4-Cylinder engine that produces 268 horsepower and 280 lb-ft of torque.
The base model engine in the Ford produces the same amount of torque, but less horsepower at 250.
Infotainment and Audio Features
Quiet drives aren’t your thing. You want to be able to enjoy your favorite songs or podcasts while you make your way to your destination. The INFINITI QX50 and the Ford Edge offer tons of premium infotainment and audio options to give a truly immersive experience. For starters, both vehicles come standard with Bluetooth® connectivity, Apple CarPlay®, and Android Auto™.
For iPhone users, the INFINITI QX50 comes with Siri® Eyes Free, which links Siri® up with your vehicle, allowing you to use your voice to give it commands like you would normally. The INFINITI also comes with a much better audio system than what you’ll find in the Ford.
Powered by BOSE®, the INFINITI comes with a 16-speaker audio system that also features a subwoofer, while the audio system in the Ford is a 12-speaker system by Bang and Olufsen.
Safety Features in the INFINITI and the Ford
You rely on your car to act as a second set of eyes for you. And when danger strikes or is imminent, you need it to be able to react accordingly. The INFINITI QX50 and Ford Edge were built with safety in mind and offer some similar standard safety features that drivers will enjoy, such as Blind Spot Warning, Rear Cross-Traffic Alert, Rearview Camera, and more.
What really sets the INFINITI apart from the Ford in the safety game, though, is with its rear automatic braking feature. If you’re reversing and your vehicle system senses you’re about to hit an object, it will automatically apply the brakes if you don’t react in time. The INFINITI also has an easy-fill tire alert system that helps drivers fill their tires to the correct pressure every time.
With this system, you won’t need a handheld pressure gauge, and you’ll never need to look up the correct PSI (pounds per square inch) for your tires.
