  • Predicted Reliability
  • Predicted Owner Satisfaction
The midsized Ford Edge is freshened for 2019, with a revised face, updated powertrains, more entertainment options, and more advanced safety features. The standard engine is a 250-hp, 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder, now paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission, controlled by a rotary dial. A 335-hp twin-turbo V6 is offered on the new, performance-focused ST trim. Front- and all-wheel-drive versions are available. The roomy interior provides comfortable quarters, front and rear, and cargo space is generous. The quiet cabin and accomplished ride and handling wouldn't be out of place in a luxury car. The comprehensive Sync 3 infotainment system adds new functionality. Standard safety equipment includes forward-collision warning, pedestrian detection, blind-spot warning, rear cross-traffic alert, lane-departure warning, and lane-keeping assist.

The Edge carries itself like a pricier European SUV. Based on the commendable Fusion sedan, the Edge delivers a steady, comfortable ride and confident handling, which make it fun to drive. The 2.0-liter, turbo four-cylinder gets 21 mpg and is more pleasant than the 3.5-liter V6. A twin-turbo, 2.7-liter V6 is offered on the Sport trim. All use a smooth six-speed automatic transmission. Front- and all-wheel-drive versions are available. The quiet cabin wouldn't be out of place in a luxury car. The roomy interior provides comfortable quarters, front and rear, and cargo space is generous. Ford's Sync 3 infotainment system is comprehensive and easy to use. Safety options include blind-spot warning, rear cross-traffic warning, and front and rear cameras. A refreshed Edge with an eight-speed automatic transmission arrives soon.

2015 Redesign Year
Ford Edge 2017 Trim Shown: 2017 SE/SEL/Titanium
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.

Ford Edge 2014 Trim Shown: 2014 Base
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.
