Ford Edge Overview

The midsized 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 controls in versions that use the MyFord Touch technology are awful, with touch-sensitive buttons that give no tactile feedback, and a busy touch screen that forces you to take your eyes off the road too much. Reliability is well below average.

A subscription to ConsumerReports.org includes Consumer Reports road test reports (based on over 50 different tests).
