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.
