I am aware, I'm also aware that the Edge is a wider vehicle than the Escape.You are aware the top picture is the 4-cylinder? There is more side clearance on the V6.
I'm sticking with a V6 not fitting. Look at the platforms we're dealing with here.
The Escape/MKC are on the C1 platform which is shared with these:
2003 – Ford Focus C-Max (C214), first European vehicle on this platform
2004 – Mazda Axela/Mazda 3 (BK)
2005 – Ford Focus (International) (C307), (Note: the Ford Focus (North America) continues on the C170 platform through 2010)
2004 – Volvo S40 (P11)
2004 – Volvo V50 (P12)
2006 – Mazda Premacy/Mazda 5 (BK) (and related Ford i-Max)
2006 – Volvo C70 (P15)
2007 – Volvo C30 (P14)
2008 – Ford Kuga (C394)
2008 – Mazda Biante
2012 – Volvo V40 (Note: modified platform)
2014 – Lincoln MKC
The largest engine shoehorned into this platoform has been volvos use of an I5... however that is a much thinner engine than a V6. Its not a problem of width for the V6 but a problem of depth.
The Edge rides on the CD3 platform, shared with:
2002–2008 Mazda 6 (GG)
2006–present Besturn B70
2006–2012 Ford Fusion (CD338)
2006–2012 Lincoln Zephyr/MKZ (CD378)
2006–2011 Mercury Milan (CD338)
2007–present Mazda CX-9
2007–present Ford Edge crossover SUV (U387)
2007–present Lincoln MKX crossover SUV (U388)
2008–2012 Mazda 6 (GH) (Note: modified platform)
2009–present Besturn B50
CD3 is being phased out for CD4 as we speak, the new fusion/MKZ are already on CD4 and so will the next edge...
