    Midsize SUVs are some of the most well-rounded vehicles on the market because of how versatile they are. Both Chevy and Ford have their own midsize offerings for drivers looking for a multi-functional SUV. In the endless rivalry between Ford and Chevy, the two competing models in the midsize segment for the latest model year are the 2024 Ford Edge vs 2024 Chevy Blazer. These two SUVs are quite remarkable when it comes to all of the content they have and how much flexibility they offer in terms of features and performance. If you're curious how they stack up, then get ready to find out.

    When it comes to upgrades for 2024, the Chevy Blazer is extremely light on new content, as Chevy was more focused on the Chevy Blazer EV. There are only two new additions for the model year: heated front seats are now standard on all the trims, and there is an all-new exterior color option in the form of Riptide Blue Metallic. The 2024 Blazer is available in four trims and has three special editions. This includes the 2LT, 3LT, RS, and Premier trims, with the special editions being the Midnight Edition, Sport Edition, and Redline Edition.

    The 2024 Ford Edge is available with everything carrying over from the outgoing model year, such as the return of the ST Interior Appearance Package, the standard perimeter alarm on the ST trim, and the Silver Honeycomb grille with a chrome surround on the SE and SEL trims. For 2024 specifically, the premium Ford Streaming service has been upgraded from a complimentary 30-day subscription to an entire year, which is great for drivers who enjoy streaming with the vehicle's infotainment suite. You can get the 2024 Edge in five different trims, including the SE, SEL, ST-Line, Titanium, and ST.

  • Performance

    Multiple Available Powertrains

    Midsize SUVs are a great middle ground between fuel-efficient compact SUVs and truck-like full-size models. There are multiple powertrain options available for the 2024 Edge and 2024 Blazer. However, while the Blazer comes with front-wheel drive, the Edge makes all-wheel drive a standard feature. When it comes to the available power, the Edge again takes a noticeable leap ahead of the Blazer in terms of both the low-end and high-end powertrains.

    The 2024 Blazer comes standard with a 2.0-liter turbocharged inline four-cylinder that makes 228 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque. The 2024 Edge easily trumps that with its own 2.0-liter turbocharged powertrain that manages 250 hp and 280 lb-ft of torque. You get roughly 10% more horsepower and torque from the Edge than the Blazer when it comes to the entry-level powertrains. Even with base trim, you can get more power out of the Edge compared to the Blazer.

    More Performance and Efficiency

    On the upper end of the powertrain offerings, the 2024 Blazer delivers 308 hp and 270 lb-ft of torque with a 3.6-liter V6. This gives the Blazer a lot more power over the base turbocharged four-cylinders, but it still comes up short compared to the Edge's more performance-driven engine option. The 2024 Edge has a 2.7-liter EcoBoost twin-turbocharged V6 as the alternative powertrain, which produces 335 hp and 380 lb-ft of torque. Like the entry-level powertrain, the Edge's alternative twin-turbo V6 is considerably more performance-driven than the Blazer's V6, offering 10% more horsepower and over 40% more torque, making a massive difference in acceleration and off-the-line performance.

    Despite Ford offering substantially more power, the Edge and Blazer have nearly identical fuel economy numbers. When equipped with all-wheel drive, the 2024 Blazer is rated for 24 MPG combined with its base engine and 21 MPG combined with its optional V6. The 2024 Edge, on the other hand, has an estimated fuel economy of 23 MPG combined with its standard 2.0-liter and 21 MPG combined with the available EcoBoost V6. In fact, Ford's base engine is slightly more efficient when you look at highway fuel economy rather than combined fuel economy, getting 28 MPG on the highway against 27 MPG on the highway from the Blazer.

  • Capacity

    Passenger and Cargo Space

    Capacity is a big issue for midsize SUVs because they need to offer more space than a subcompact or compact SUV but still need to be more maneuverable and smaller than three-row crossovers and full-size SUVs. When it comes to the 2024 Edge and 2024 Blazer, both have plenty of interior cabin storage for everything from maps and cups to smart devices and small belongings. You get two rows available in both the Edge and the Blazer, and both vehicles can seat up to five people across both rows. However, when it comes to total cargo capacity, the Edge wins out.

    While both vehicles share similarities when it comes to total passenger capacity, how they utilize their interior space is quite different, and the Blazer has slightly less room than the Edge. The 2024 Blazer, for instance, has a base cargo volume of 30.5 cu.ft. behind the second row. Like many other midsize vehicles, you can also fold down the second row and make use of up to 64.2 cu.ft. of space. While adequate, the Blazer still comes up significantly shorter than the Edge in terms of cargo capacity.

    The Edge, for a midsize SUV, offers some notable cargo capacity behind the second row. In fact, it trumps the 2024 Blazer by offering 39.2 cu.ft. of cargo volume behind the second row, which gives you nearly 30% more cargo volume behind the second row. With the second row folded down, you get even more space to work with inside the Edge, with 73.4 cu.ft. of total cargo volume. Once again, the Edge offers significantly more room, giving you a lot more versatility in how you use that space compared to Chevy's midsize SUV.

    Superior Connectivity Features

    Automotive technology is big business. Manufacturers need a great suite of safety assists and infotainment to keep drivers alert and on the road and to help with collision mitigation. People also rely on SUVs to provide excellent media access and connectivity, as passengers will want to access different apps, services, and music via the built-in infotainment suite. Both the 2024 Edge and 2024 Blazer come with a nice assortment of cool tech, not only in the form of driver assist features like the Ford Co-Pilot360 and Chevy Safety Assist suites but also in great infotainment options. Like the other categories, however, the Escape still bests the Blazer in key infotainment aspects.

    Both midsize SUVs offer HD touchscreens with connectivity for wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, as well as vehicle health, Wi-Fi hotspot support, and voice-activated functionality. The Blazer, however, comes with a 10.2-inch touchscreen and an available eight-inch digital display cluster for driver information and vehicle telemetry. While Chevy's infotainment features are impressive compared to many other models, the Edge manages to come out on top with its own infotainment suite.

    The Edge comes with a larger 12-inch touchscreen, so you get additional space to not only view content but also make it easier to touch and activate icons on the screen. Powered by the Ford SYNC 4A system, you can quickly navigate all of your apps and vehicle health information. With the FordPass app, you also have access to your vehicle from your smartphone. This gives you a lot of tech to utilize in the Edge, whether you're in the cabin or outside of it, plus a much larger screen over the 2024 Blazer.
