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.

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. The answer to that question is what determines our owner-satisfaction rating, which is a powerful piece of intel because it predicts how well a particular model will satisfy other owners.

Anonymous, ON (2018 Ford Edge)

"Reported to NHTSA that the 2018 Ford Edge stalls while driving. I have it recorded on video. It spent so much time at the dealer. Multiple times while you drive, it just dies. This has happened SO many times, going anywhere from 1 to 45 mph"

Barbara C., NJ (2018 Ford Edge)

"Great heandling"

Anonymous, MI (2018 Ford Edge)

"Handles very well, doesn't feel like i'm driving a large vehicle. Unfortunately the acceleration sometimes has a delay before kicking in."

Anonymous, VA (2018 Ford Edge)

"Handles very well. Feels like you complete control of the road. Acceleration is excellent!"

Lyle D., TN (2018 Ford Edge)

"Great handling,comfort,acceleration and extremely quiet."

Anonymous, NJ (2018 Ford Edge)

"The steering is agile and handling on curves in the road is actually fun. Acceleration is ok with the 6 cylinder 3.5L engine. The Edge Titanium has the towing package with maximum tow weight of up to 3500 lbs. I think it would pull a small trailer, like for Jet Skis without any problem."

"We have the Technology Pkg, which keeps one more alert, when driving. Keeps you in your lane, slows down if you get to close to car in front of you, and a Big Red Flashing light in your face if your in potential Danger !!!"

Fred H., MI (2018 Ford Edge)

"Turns like a large pick-up truck, especially annoying when trying to park. Accelartion from a full stop is good as well as in the city but on the highway when going 70Km or over is a bit weak, would need more power. It's relatively hard on gas, I have a couple of acquaintances that has this car as well and they tell me the same thing, it likes the gas stations."

Stephane G., ON (2018 Ford Edge)

Terry K., IN (2018 Ford Edge)

"Very responsive & smooth acceleration. Handling is nimble."

Grieco J., PA (2018 Ford Edge)

"The Edge Sport has great acceleration; I particularly like the response at part-throttle. The vehicle is very reassuring to drive on the highway; merging and negotiating traffic is a low-stress affair."

Richard Y., IL (2018 Ford Edge)

Comfort

Includes seats, climate control, noise, and ride

What Owners Say

"I find the seats to be comfortable. We had a 2008 edge and were told by the dealer this had the same features as our previous one, it does not, and we are very disappointed. The ride and noises are bad. You hear every outside noise and feel every bump."

Gary T., NY (2018 Ford Edge)

"The windows are too small so visibility is poor."

Anonymous, MI (2018 Ford Edge)

"Very comfortable seats. Feels like a much more expensive car. I have already gone on two long rides and very satisfied. Handles like car despite a relatively large SUV. All wheel drive adds to stable feeling."

Michael G., NJ (2018 Ford Edge)

"We initially were looking at a 2018 X3 since we really like BMWs. However, the seats in the X3 are hard and my wife found them uncomfortable on trips over 90 minutes. Thus, we looked for a vehicle with more comfortable seats. The Ford Edge in the Titanium trim had the requisite bells and whistles to rival the X3 with way more comfortable seats at a lower price point. Gas mileage does not approach the X3...Edge average city we get is around 22 while the 2018 X3 (4 cyl) was closer to 26. When you factor in regular gas for the Edge vs premium for the X3 however, cost per mile is almost identical. Edge has more storage with the seats down. All in all, the Edge is an excellent vehicle and good value for the money."

Charles H., NC (2018 Ford Edge)

"Seats(heat and a/c), noise level, roominess, all great"

George G., WI (2018 Ford Edge)

Terry K., IN (2018 Ford Edge)

"The edge is quiet even at highway speeds. The seats are very comfortable, plenty of padding."

Anonymous, FL (2018 Ford Edge)

"Seats fit me really well with a lot of adjustments, has memory seats so I can set and forget. Seat moves back when vehicle is turned off which makes it easier to get in and out of vehicle, love this. This Edge rides more like a car than my previous Escape which makes it more comfortable too. Very quiet now, but I'm sure it will develop some squeaks or rattles, it's a Ford!"

Percentage of owners who would definitely purchase that same vehicle again. Owner-satisfaction Ratings are determined by the percentage of those who answered "definitely yes" to the question asked by the Consumer Reports Annual Auto Survey "Considering all factors (price, performance, reliability, comfort, enjoyment, etc.), would you get this car if you had to do it all over again?". If we don’t have sufficient data, a similar model might be used to form the owner-satisfaction score.
