Looking at the list of Lincoln SUVs, you may start to wonder which model is the most similar to the famous Ford Edge.
These two vehicles have more in common than you might think, but they obviously have differences as well.
So which Lincoln SUV is the closest to the Ford Edge?
The most similar Lincoln SUV to the Ford Edge is the Lincoln Corsair. The Corsair matches the Edge point for point everywhere except for four-wheel drive. Not many other Lincoln models are similar because none of the Lincoln SUVs have had four-wheel drive until recently.
That’s the answer to the question, but what exactly makes the Lincoln Corsair so similar to the Ford Edge?
And why are the Lincoln SUVs that actually have four-wheel drive not their most similar models to the Edge?
These are fair questions, so let’s explore them below.
Just by taking a look at the stats of the two vehicles, it’s pretty easy to tell that they’re almost siblings.
They’re almost exactly the same size as each other, they get almost exactly the same number of miles to the gallon, and they have identical engine stats.
Between the two, the Ford Edge is still probably the better vehicle, as it has four-wheel drive and an extra couple of feet of space.
On the other hand, the Corsair is a tiny bit lighter.
This won’t make much of a difference, but it could minimally affect your mpg.
They also have very similar price points, which is perhaps one of the most important reasons that the two vehicles are similar.
If you’re looking for an alternative to a certain car, you’re probably looking for something with a similar price point.
If you can afford one, you can afford the other, so it’s the little details that really make a difference now.
The Corsair is very close in price, but it is about $2,000 more expensive than the Ford Edge.
It isn’t much better for the money though, so the Edge is still probably a better choice for most people.
So what other Lincoln SUVs might also be in the running for the prestigious title of the car that’s most similar to the Ford Edge?
SUVs With Four Wheel Drive
The only Lincoln SUV with four-wheel drive is the Lincoln Navigator.
Four-wheel drive is a pretty big part of what makes the Ford Edge what it is, so how can a vehicle without it be so similar to it?
Well, the Navigator doesn’t really have anything else in common with the Edge.
It weighs a ton more and can tow 6,000 lbs.
It also costs about double the price of the Edge.
It’s just in a completely different ballpark than the Edge, which is why it doesn’t make sense to try to compare them.
Other Similar Lincolns
Most other Lincoln vehicles are like the Navigator in that they aren’t at all similar to the Ford Edge.
There may be a couple. points where they match up, but generally these vehicles are very different.
For comparison, let’s explore a few models below.
The Lincoln MKX is not similar to the Ford Edge at all, except that they’re almost exactly the same weight.
Other than that, the Edge gets better miles per gallon as the MKX only gets 17 MPG in the city or 25 on the highway.
However, the MKX has the Edge beat in most of the other categories.
It can tow more and has a higher horsepower, and is also ever so slightly bigger.
Are these things worth the lower miles per gallon? Probably not.
But really, these two vehicles aren’t that much like each other.
Between the Nautilus and the MKX, the Nautilus is the one that’s closer to be similar to the Ford Edge.
However, the Nautilus has some huge differences that prevent it from being too comparable.
The first point that makes the Nautilus totally different from the Ford Edge is its price.
The Nautilus costs an extra $10,000 compared to the Ford Edge.
This is a ton of money, even when you’re talking about an object as expensive as a car.
The Nautilus also gets significantly fewer miles per gallon.
The Nautilus also has a greater number of interior design choices available as well, but ultimately, the price point is what makes it so totally incomparable to the Edge.
If you’re looking for a vehicle that’s in a similar price range, the Nautilus is not the car for you!
Ah yes, another SUV.
The Lincoln Aviator is another vehicle that has completely outclassed the Ford Edge. It can double the weight and has nearly twice the horsepower as the Edge.
It also fits two more passengers, which is nice if you plan to transport a lot of people in your vehicle.
Of course, this all comes at the cost of $20,000 more than the price of the Ford Edge.
That means that all of those extra features are coming at a huge price.
This means that your actual choice is unlikely to be between these two vehicles due to the massive difference in price.
This vehicle is more expensive than the Nautilus so it’s even less comparable to the Edge.
As is to be expected at this point, the Aviator gets significantly fewer miles to the gallon than the Edge.
This is a point against it, but larger and heavier vehicles are bound to get fewer miles to the gallon.
But again, these vehicles aren’t really similar.
Generally, the people who want the Aviator are not the same people who want a Ford Edge.
Most Lincoln SUVs aren’t all that similar to the Ford Edge.
This article focused on the ways that they might be similar, but that’s mostly just because it would have taken much longer to actually explain the numerous differences between each of these vehicles and the Ford Edge.
Of course, even the most similar SUV to the Edge, the Lincoln Corsair, is still different from the Edge in a number of ways.
Fords and Lincolns just aren’t in the same ballpark most of the time.
