Ford Edge 2016 4-door SUV
Trim Shown: SEL
New and vastly improved, the second-generation Edge carries itself like a pricier European SUV. Based on the commendable Fusion sedan, the Edge likewise delivers a steady, comfortable ride and confident handling that makes it fun to drive. The quiet cabin wouldn't be out of place in a luxury car. Roomy interior provides comfortable quarters, front and rear, while also delivering generous cargo space. The standard 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. Front- and all-wheel drive is available. Safety options include blind-spot monitoring, forward and rear-view cameras, and cross-traffic alert.

Given the so-so visibility, consider the blind-spot monitoring a must have. We'd also opt for the Sync 3 touch-scre...
