2019 Ford Edge Ratings & Reliability
The freshened Edge SUV got updated powertrains and additional advanced safety features. A 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission is standard and provides smooth, quiet acceleration. The new high-performance ST trim gets a V6 turbo and AWD. The roomy interior provides comfortable quarters, front and rear, and cargo space is generous. The driving position is uneven because the left footrest sits too close to the driver. The Edge can rival a luxury car with its quiet cabin, steady ride, and agile handling, and the Sync 3 infotainment system is easy to use. Standard safety equipment includes forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, blind spot warning, rear cross-traffic alert, lane departure warning, and lane keeping assist.
2015 Redesign Year
Ford Edge 2018
We heralded the 2015 Ford Edge as worthy of a most improved trophy. Newfound handling agility and greatly improved interior refinement catapults the model to the top of our midsized SUV ratings. Roomy quarters provide family-sized accommodations front to back, while the power liftgate exposes generous cargo space and a flat load floor. Still, the MyFord Touch infotainment system's small fonts, tightly clustered touchscreen buttons and unintuitive functions give us pause. You'll want to get at least the SEL-trim or better for the power driver's seat and dual-zone automatic climate control. We also recommend finding an Edge equipped with blind spot monitoring and a rearview camera.

2011 Redesign Year
Ford Edge 2014
Ford added a second engine choice to the Edge lineup for 2011, a 240-hp turbocharged four-cylinder. While it offers good power and excellent fuel economy, the overall package falls short because of so-so refinement and driving dynamics. The addition of the MyFord Touch infotainment system promised a new era of connectivity, but it actually proved to be more of a distraction than a benefit. Ultimately, this version of the Edge, though it ranked mid-pack in our SUV ratings, scores too low for us to recommend it.

2007 Redesign Year
Ford Edge 2010
A car-based crossover SUV, the Edge arrived for 2007 with a 3.5-liter V6 mated to a six-speed automatic transmission. Front-drive is standard, all-wheel drive is optional, but the Ford doesn't offer a third-row seat. Ride quality is good and the powertrain is quite strong, but it lacks overall refinement. While low doorsills and wide door openings make access easy, interior fit and finish are unimpressive. Outward visibility is somewhat impeded by thick roof pillars, along with lackluster front and rear glass areas. Further, the Edge isn't particularly agile, though its handling is ultimately secure and IIHS crash-test results are commendable. To get features like dual-zone climate control and heated seats you'll need to focus your search on Limited-trimmed models.
