Ford has been on a bit of a roll of late in creating appealing cars, such as the Fusion, Focus, and Mustang. The redesigned Edge five-seat crossover shows a dynamic polish and upscale cabin that befits a prestige-branded model. Deserving of a "Most Improved" trophy, the Edge brings newfound handling agility, interior refinement, and overall premium feel to the nameplate, turning it into a competitive midsized SUV.

Road Test Results

Performance
Acceleration Acceleration Acceleration tests are conducted on a smooth, flat pavement straightaway at the track. Time, speed, and distance measurements are taken with a precise GPS-based device that’s hooked to a data-logging computer.
0 to 60 mph 0 to 60 mph (sec.) The time in seconds that a vehicle takes to reach 60 mph from a standstill with the engine idling.
Transmission Transmission Transmission performance is determined by shifting smoothness, response, shifter action, and clutch actuation for manual transmissions.
Braking Braking The braking rating is a composite of wet and dry stopping distances and pedal feel. Braking distance is from 60 mph, with no wheels locked.
Emergency Handling Emergency Handling Several factors go into the rating, including the avoidance maneuver speed and confidence, as well as how the vehicle behaves when pushed to its limit.
Comfort / Convenience
Ride Ride Our expert judgment of how well the suspension isolates and absorbs road imperfections and how steady it keeps the body on various road surfaces.
Noise Noise Our expert judgment of the vehicle's interior noise level in everyday driving.
Front Seat Comfort Front Seat Comfort Our judgment of how comfortable the front seat is for drivers of various heights.
Rear Seat Comfort Rear Seat Comfort Our judgment of how comfortable the rear seat is for two passengers to sit across.

Fuel Economy & Emissions
Fuel Economy Fuel Economy We perform our own fuel-economy tests, independent of the government's often-quoted EPA figures and the manufacturers' claims. Using a precise fuel-flow measuring device spliced into the fuel line, we run two separate circuits to represent city and highway consumption.
CR's Overall Mileage CR's Overall Mileage CR's overall mileage is a composite of measured fuel usage on a prescribed city course and highway cruising; and CR's 150-mile test trip of mixed driving, if tested. In recent road tests, we've discontinued the 150-mile trip test.
CR's City Mileage CR's City Mileage Measured fuel usage on a prescribed city course.
CR's Highway Mileage CR's Highway Mileage Measured fuel usage on a prescribed highway cruising.
Annual Fuel Cost Annual Fuel Cost The cost and amount of fuel used in 12,000 miles and is calculated from CR's overall mileage.
Greenhouse Gas Greenhouse Gas The Greenhouse Gas Rating represents the amount of carbon dioxide the vehicle emits compared to other vehicles of the same model year. This score from the EPA ranges from 1 (worst) to 10 (best).
Smog Rating Smog Rating The Smog Rating represents the amount of health-damaging and smog-forming airborne pollutants the vehicle emits compared to other vehicles of the same model year. This score from the EPA ranges from 1 (worst) to 10 (best).

Owner Reports

Reliability History Reliability History The reliability charts are based on responses on hundreds of thousands of vehicles from our latest Annual Auto Survey. Consumer Reports subscribers reported on any serious problems they had with their vehicles during the past 12 months that they considered serious because of cost, failure, safety, or downtime, in any of the trouble spots included in the table below. The results are presented relative to the average model that year. Extra weight is given to the more serious areas such as major engine or transmission problems. Based on this data and further analysis, we predict reliability for the latest year. N/A indicates that we did not receive a large enough sample size to provide data for a specific year. An X indicates that the vehicle was not manufactured for a specific year.

Road Test

Ford has been on a bit of a roll of late in creating appealing cars, such as the Fusion, Focus, and Mustang. The redesigned Edge five-seat crossover shows a dynamic polish and upscale cabin that befits a prestige-branded model. Deserving of a "Most Improved" trophy, the Edge brings newfound handling agility, interior refinement, and overall premium feel to the nameplate, turning it into a competitive midsized SUV.

The secret lies in the platform the Edge shares with the Ford Fusion sedan, another model that punches above its weight class. The Fusion's chassis delivers sublime cornering feel, and it carries over to the Edge.

Air or water leaks

"The lenses across the rear lights on the liftgate and the left quarter developed leaks and began to contain condensation. The condensation became significant, partially obscuring the lights. There had been no damage to the vehicle, liftgate, or lens, and there was no explanation for the development of the leak and resulting condensation. The condensation also was aesthetically unappealing."

Rough shifting

"This transmission continually downshifts when gently pressing the gas pedal between 70-100 km/hr. You cannot drive smoothly. The engine revs and it takes a good 3-5 seconds before the next gear is selected. Totally frustrating on the highway. There is no issue in the city."
