Why does the Edge weigh so much??


Recommended Posts

It's smaller than my Freestyle, but weights ALOT more.



Let's crunch some numbers.


You will get slightly different numbers depending on your source. I am using:

Ford Vehicle Comparison 2007 Edge SEL FWD vs 2007 Freestyle Limited FWD


The only way I can compare the two is to estimate them as rectangular bricks:

Volume = Lenght X Width X (Height - Ground Clearance)




Length 185.7"

Width 75.8"

Height 67.0"

Ground Clearance 8.0"

Height Adjusted for ground clearance: 59"

Weight 4086 lbs




Length 199.8"

Width 74.4"

Height 65.9"

Ground Clearance 5.1"

Height Adjusted for ground clearance: 60.8"

Weight 3959 lbs


Fresstyle is longer.

Edge is wider.

Freestyle is taller adjusted for ground clearance.


Edge brick volume: 481 cubic feet

Fresstyle brick volume: 523 cubic feet

% difference: 8.7%


Edge brick density: 8.5 lbs / cubic foot

Freestyle brick density: 7.6 lbs / cubic foot

% difference: 12%
