The Edge is a car-based SUV with a 3.5-liter V6 engine mated to a six-speed automatic transmission. All-wheel drive is available, but the Ford crossover SUV doesn't offer a third-row seat. Ride is good and the powertrain is quite strong, but lacks refinement. The Edge isn't particularly agile, though its handling is ultimately secure. Interior fit and finish are unimpressive. IIHS crash-test results are commendable.

Overall Owner Satisfaction

Consumer Reports’ Annual Owner Satisfaction Survey can improve the chances of finding a compatible car match. How?

"A little slow off the start."

Anonymous, AL (2007 Ford Edge)

"This is a very comfortable vehicle whether it is for short or long trips. We only get 20/21 MPG because we have to drive up and down the mountain even to get groceries. When we travel long distances we get 24/25 MPG with it loaded down. The Edge will get up and go in a hurry, no issues there. We did have the transmission replaced after 180,000 miles but I still don't think that's too bad considering the miles and traveling up and down the mountain every day sometimes 2/3 times a day. I will be b..."

Styling

How it looks inside and out

What Owners Say

"This was the first Edge we purchased. We loved everything about it. It has the the vista roof, leather seats, navigation. Visibility is fantastic. That is probably the main reason we purchased this vehicle when we went looking for an SUV. Handling is fantastic, especially in the winters here. We have been so satisfied with this AWD vehicle that we purchased another Ford Edge this past winter."

Percentage of owners who would definitely purchase that same vehicle again. Owner-satisfaction Ratings are determined by the percentage of those who answered "definitely yes" to the question asked by the Consumer Reports Annual Auto Survey "Considering all factors (price, performance, reliability, comfort, enjoyment, etc.), would you get this car if you had to do it all over again?". If we don’t have sufficient data, a similar model might be used to form the owner-satisfaction score.
