The Edge has good interior space, easy access, and sprightly engines in either its V6 or turbocharged four-cylinder versions. The overall package falls short though, due to so-so refinement and driving dynamics. The MyFord Touch controls force you to take your eyes off the road far too much. Even simpler controls in lower-level models are distracting.

Overall Owner Satisfaction

Consumer Reports’ Annual Owner Satisfaction Survey can improve the chances of finding a compatible car match. How? Our survey data reveals whether, all things considered, owners would buy the same car again.

What Owners Say

"Drives like a truck, hard to handle for a woman."

Anonymous, AZ (2013 Ford Edge)

"The car handles great in all types of weather. It has great acceleration and braking as well."

PAN G., FL (2013 Ford Edge)

"SOMETIMES CAN FEEL LIKE YOU HAVE TO FIGHT THE STEERING SYSTEM. ALSO, IT'S BREAKS WERE GRABBING. JUST TOOK IT TO THE DEALER WHO WILL PUT ON NEW ROTORS AND PADS FRONT AND BACK AND WILL REPLACE THE BOOSTER. THE BOOSTER IS NO COST TO US BECAUSE WE PURCHASED THE FORD ESP (EXTENDED SERVICE PLAN GOOD TO 100,000 MILES) WHEN WE BOUGHT THE EDGE BACK IN SEPT '13."

RICHARD E., GA (2013 Ford Edge)

"Acceleration is good but the engine growls too loud. I don't like that. Too much wind noise. Too much noise from warning beeps when backing up. Braking is good."

JERRY G., MN (2013 Ford Edge)

"I love the roomy ness of the driver/passenger compartments. Very confortable to ride in."

Anonymous, CA (2013 Ford Edge)

"Since the vehicle was new, there has occasionally been a pronounced hesitation in the acceleration if I am driving at a lower speed and need to accelerate quickly. The dealer service department denies being able to identify a problem, but it is there and I must be prepared to compensate for it when I drive."

CECILIA L., MI (2013 Ford Edge)

"Acceleration handling very good"

Anonymous, ON (2013 Ford Edge)

"Cabin is not as quiet as I would like"

"All wheel drive is great when you live in a northern climate."

Anonymous, WI (2013 Ford Edge)

"For its class, it's a fun car to drive and handles very well. However the transmission has a very harsh 2-3 upshift and is reluctant to downshift 3-2. Ford has deemed these issues to be normal. This one issue is the only negative I can really give."

THOMAS S., MB (2013 Ford Edge)

"Good for a road trip car with ample cargo space and every safety known to man, but it accelerates and whines like a tiny 4 cylinder huffing up a mountain, even on fairly gradual inclines. It isn't fun to drive by any means."

Anonymous, CA (2013 Ford Edge)

"Sluggish or slow acceleration. Doesn't respond when I yell at it to go faster !! Handles nicely"

Anonymous, KY (2013 Ford Edge)

"It's very fun to drive but there is a "dead spot" in the acceleration. Not bad but it does take the fun down a notch."

Anonymous, OK (2013 Ford Edge)

"sufficient except for poor gas mileage"

JOAN M., MA (2013 Ford Edge)

"This smaller Ford SUV has surprising and dependable spunk for those times when unexpected and sudden additional power is needed."

LOUANDA K., IN (2013 Ford Edge)

"Just got back from a 2000 mile trip and averaged for the trip26 MPG, one tank at 29.1 MPG."

D G., SC (2013 Ford Edge)

"AWD is great, engine responsiveness, handling"

Craig O., FL (2013 Ford Edge)

"Acceleration is horrible because of the Ecoboost system. I get only 20.1 mpg instead of the advertised 30 mpg."

Kathi V., KS (2013 Ford Edge)

"Handless well in all kinds of weather."

David C., NY (2013 Ford Edge)

"We like this car and it handles well - smooth acceleration and braking. Not a sports car, but not meant to be. Not loud or draggy."

Anonymous, IA (2013 Ford Edge)

"easy to drive and handle"

Anonymous, NE (2013 Ford Edge)

"Fun to drive with turbo 4cyl and the extra torque. Fuel mileage leaves something to be desired when compared to similar sized and equipped vehicles."

Shaun M., IA (2013 Ford Edge)

"Outstanding handling over Detroit areas pot-holed roads, great acceleration for highway merging, highly capable all wheel drive to drive with confidence in the snow, drives like a car with the capabilities of a truck!"

David F., FL (2013 Ford Edge)

"The car handles just as I need it to. I bought it new in Sept 2013 it has done everything I have asked of it. No mechanical problems at all. If there is a problem it would be road noise, I have to turn radio up to hear it when driving on the interstate."

Robert W., TX (2013 Ford Edge)

"EcoBoost provides great acceleration with fine economy. Very good confident handling & brakes, The quiet ride and performance of a quality product."

Anonymous, MD (2013 Ford Edge)

"The 3.5 ltr V6 is a real gem of an engine and 285 hp is more than enough power. The FWD SEL Edge handles much better than some sedans and is very poised on any road surface. With the 20 inch wheels it feels well planted and predictable, I feel that it is a very underrated SUV WHEN COMPARED to its market position"

"Our Edge saved our lives. On a very foggy night, 01/26/2015, we were struck headon by a unlicened, uninsured 66 year old woman in a Pontiac G6. The fog was so thick that I was reduced to 42mph. I saw her head lights with just enough time to crank the steering wheel and apply the brakes. She struck the Edge on the driver's side of the front end, at 55+mph, and sent us airbourne. My wife was in the passenger seat with her right leg extended. She suffered five fractures in her foot that required three surgerys -an infection-very limited articulation of the ankle-permanent limp-and a limitation on how many steps she can take, a gash in her left arm from the center council that required nine stiches and multiple contusions. My ankle and the lower inch of my Tibia & Fibula were reduced to corn flakes. After four surgies my right foot is still attached! The ankle area is not frozen, no ankle really, I have about five degrees of articulation and basically can't walk downhill. But we are alive! If you looked pass the airbags and the driver's door you almost couldn't it had been in a horric crash by the looks of the interior. The front end collapsed just as it was designed to. After sending us airbourne the other driver still had enough momentum to strike, and total, my son's Mazda 8. The Edge was responsive in it's handling, a comfort to drive and it acceleration was great."

I hope to never have another vehicle without it. When using cruise it senses the speed/distance of the vehicle you're following or approaching and slows down if necessary without having to bit The brake. It's fantastic!"

Electronic display overly complicated and distracting from driving. Too duplicative, and uses too many different ways to accomplish the same thing. Hard to see dash in direct sunlight.
