Ford Edge Overview

The Edge has its strong points, but there are better choices. Its 3.5-liter V6 provides lively acceleration and returned 18 mpg in our tests. But the powertrain lacks refinement, and the six-speed automatic isn't that smooth. A 240-hp, turbocharged four-cylinder that returned 21 mpg overall is available only on front-wheel-drive versions. The ride is a bit jittery, and road noise is pronounced. The MyFord Touch controls have touch-sensitive buttons that give no tactile feedback, and a distracting touchscreen. Reliability of the V6 has improved to average; the four-cylinder turbo is well below average. A redesigned Edge arrives in the spring of 2015.
