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.
There are 7 recalls on this vehicle. Learn More.

What Owners Say

"We were used to the Ford Taurus 3.6 engine which is what the 2010 engine has but the transmission in Taurus had funky shifting noise and the Edge doesn't have that. It also seems to accelerate better than the Taurus and so far, has no shifting problems"

Anonymous, UT (2010 Ford Edge)

"It feels like driving a truck after driving the Fusion"

Anonymous, DE (2010 Ford Edge)

"My Ford Edge has no problem in the acceleration area and has no problems in the handling area. I really enjoy my Edge and will purchase another one when it comes time. Ford did something right with this vehicle."

"Great handling,acceleration braking"

Fredrick Z., NJ (2010 Ford Edge)

"When I test drive a car, I check the acceleration when getting on the highway. This car passed. Great handling."

Anonymous, OK (2010 Ford Edge)

"When you are driving very good to control and when you accelerate it goes"

William S., AZ (2010 Ford Edge)

"To me the Edge more like a truck than a car. It feels much heavier than the Fusion, and its fuel economy is very noticeably worse. It feels like the car has to really labor to accelerate."

Anonymous, MI (2010 Ford Edge)

"Have been very satisfied with this vehicle as it is driven in snow, ice, mud etc. The only bad thing I find is that on grid roads the dust gets in the back of the auto."

VALERIE M., CA (2010 Ford Edge)

"It is very secure with good acceleration and handling for an SUV."

GARY G., SC (2010 Ford Edge)

"Handles fine, but does not respond quickly to slight increase in gas pedal. Feels to be other than direct connection from pedal to gas."

JOHN W., CA (2010 Ford Edge)

"Excellent acceleration and best handling of any vehicle I've owned. Handles very well in icy and snowy conditions. Interior can be a little noisy at freeway speeds."

ROBERT B., OH (2010 Ford Edge)

"Because of size and maneuverability, my wife does not care to drive this car As I get older, I prefer to drive a smaller car.."

R P., WI (2010 Ford Edge)

"Very comfortable seats! I like that the seat move all the way back when exciting the SUV. Lots of room to get in and out! Runs extremely well. Shifts well and has a great ride. Controls are very logical and easy to use. Very good looking vehicle."

DUANE L., PA (2010 Ford Edge)

"I wish the car had a little more acceleration power. Later models do have increased power. Handling is good"

LEO M., CA (2010 Ford Edge)

"The car is seven years old now but it still handles well. The acceleration is nothing quick but your not really looking for that in this type of vehicle."

John C., NY (2010 Ford Edge)

"The Edge is a great handling SUV. It has excellent acceleration and we get 33MPG on trips. That is Imperial gallon."

Anonymous, ON (2010 Ford Edge)

"For a relatively heavy SUV the Edge handles and accelerates very well. It is very sure footed in snow with the AWD system. Both my wife and I are very please with it."

Anonymous, OK (2010 Ford Edge)

"To me the Edge more like a truck than a car. It is quite noisy. My wife likes the added height of the drivers seat and the better road view that it provides her. It is "her" car."

Chris C., CA (2010 Ford Edge)

"The seating is like you are sitting in your favorite chair."

Bernard M., FL (2010 Ford Edge)

"Seats have enough control to find the best driving position for me being short. Noise is less than the Ford Taurus AWD we had for 6 years. Ride is stiffer than the Taurus but then it is an SUV so just getting used to it"

Anonymous, UT (2010 Ford Edge)

"Ample room for four adults and very quiet on the highway."

Michael S., NY (2010 Ford Edge)

"I have a Nero-stimulator implanted in my back so I have a difficult to find vehicle comfortable to drive. The Ford Edge is so comfortable and the ride is so smooth. I drove many different vehicles before finding the Ford Edge and I have never regretted purchasing it. Very little noise with this vehicle either and I had to have leather seats in my vehicle because I cannot have even a static shock or it will create a problem with my implant. If this vehicle gives out, I will look at the Ford Edge again."

Anonymous, MI (2010 Ford Edge)

"The front seats are very comfortable and easy to find the best driving position. I can drive hours and can get out of the car and not be sore. The car allows a little more noise in than I like. There is very little engine noise but road and wind noise are evident there is also more suspension noise than most cars. The ride is very good all about the biggest bumps are smoothed out."

Jacob K., PA (2010 Ford Edge)

"Seats are big and comfortable however the A/C failed twice in the 1st 40 months"

FRED S., NJ (2010 Ford Edge)

DAVID P., CO (2010 Ford Edge)

"The seats are highly adjustable with padding shapes just right. It's very easy to find a perfect driving position. The noise is a little higher than I would like but still pretty quiet. The ride is the best of any SUV that I have ever owned."
