Is the new 2022 Toyota Highlander a vehicle of interest to you? If yes, here is a detailed comparison article between the 2022 Toyota Sequoia and the 2022 Ford Edge that distinguishes their differences and what makes the 2022 Highlander a better option of the two.
The Toyota Highlander is available in 11 trims - L, LE, Hybrid LE, XLE, Hybrid XLE, XSE, Bronze Edition, Limited, Hybrid Limited, Platinum, Hybrid Platinum. In terms of pricing, the base L trim carries a price tag of $35,305 MSRP while the top-end Hybrid Platinum trim will cost $49,010 MSRP. The Ford Edge’s configuration options are not as extensive as it offers only five trims, namely SE, SEL, ST-Line, Titanium, and ST. The Edge’s pricing varies from $34,905 MSRP for the base SE trim and goes up to $43,760 MSRP for the top-end ST trim.
The Highlander’s base engine produces more horsepower than the Ford Edge. On the other hand, the Edge’s torque output is higher. Not to forget that the Ford Edge has an additional powertrain on offer that is more powerful than the Highlander. On the flip side, the Highlander has a hybrid powertrain option available while the Edge fails in this aspect. The Ford Edge is far more powerful than the Highlander. However, the Highlander is more fuel-efficient than the Edge.
Both the vehicles are equipped with well-established cabins. The base Highlander is equipped with fabric-trimmed seats and power-adjustable front seats. As you move higher, you get leather upholstery along with heated and ventilated front seats. Ford Edge is also offered with the same set of features. However, the Edge does not offer an optional third-row seating like the Highlander. This makes the Highlander a lot more practical.
Just like any other Toyota, the Highlander comes equipped with a wide range of technological features, including an eight-inch touchscreen display, Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, Bluetooth connectivity, Amazon Alexa, Wi-Fi hotspot, tri-zone automatic climate control, Satellite Radio, HD Radio, and a six-speaker sound system. Upgraded features like a 12.3-inch touchscreen display, wireless device charging, ambient interior lighting, an 11-speaker JBL premium stereo system, and a navigation system are offered as optional. All Ford Edge trims come with a 12-inch touchscreen display. But the Edge’s infotainment system is not as seamless and easy-to-use as Highlander’s interface.
