Apart from the addition of dual-zone automatic climate control as standard, nothing changes on the Ford Edge is a nice affordable midsize crossover SUV that appeals to a wide range of shoppers with SE, SEL, Titanium, and ST trims.

Performance

With two engine choices, the Ford Edge provides more-than-enough acceleration power. The standard power plant is a twin-scroll turbocharged 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine with an output of 250 horsepower and 280 pound-feet of torque. If you want even more output, go for the performance-oriented ST, which is bolstered by a 2.7-liter twin-turbocharged V6 with 335 horsepower and 380 pound-feet of torque. The ST is also the obvious choice if you want an all-wheel-drive system without having to pay thousands of dollars to replace the standard front-wheel drivetrain. Both engines are pinned to an 8-speed automatic gearbox for a relatively smooth and comfortable ride.

Interior

The Ford Edge provides a roomy interior of 110 cubic feet, with two rows of seats that accommodate up to five people. If you want to expand cargo space to over 70 cubic feet, you can fold down the rear seats, and 10-way power adjustability is added on the driver’s seat. Upper-level trims provide upgrades for more comfortability and luxury; these upgrades include:

  • Vinyl or leather upholstery
  • 6-way power adjustability on the front passenger seat
  • Front-seat and steering-wheel heating
  • Second-row automatic folding ability

The ST trim stands out with its sporty aura if that’s your preference. Its unique features include bolstered front bucket seats with silver contrast stitching and aluminum brake and accelerator pedal covers.

Comfort and Convenience

Even at the base level, the Ford Edge is stuffed with standard features. The SYNC 3 infotainment system—which comes with an 8-inch touchscreen for displaying information—combines features such as a six-speaker AM/FM stereo system, a 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot, to name a few. Bluetooth is also available for hands-free phone calling and audio streaming, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay for smartphone integration, dual USB ports and an auxiliary audio jack to hook up mobile devices, Amazon Alexa connectivity for voice command ability, and SiriusXM Radio service.

There’s also cruise control for keeping you at a safe distance from the vehicle ahead of you, a rearview camera for monitoring your reverse driving, and proximity keyless entry with push-button engine start for ultimate access to and starting the Edge.

Upgrades include the following:

  • Wireless device charging
  • Remote engine start
  • Auto-dimming rearview mirror with a garage-door opener
  • Nine-speaker stereo system or 12-speaker Bang & Olufsen stereo system

Safety

In the event of a crash, the Ford Edge provides restraint and cushioning with a driver’s knee airbag, dual frontal impact airbags, dual front seat-mounted side-impact airbags, and two roof-mounted side curtain airbags. However, there are lots of driver-assistance features to help you avoid a crash altogether. Such features include high auto beams, lane-keeping assist, post-collision braking, a reverse sensing system, and a blind-spot monitoring system with rear cross-traffic alert.

Also expect the following:

  • LED daytime running lights
  • Electronic stability control and traction control
  • Hill start assist
  • Anti-lock braking system
  • SOS post-crash system
  • Torque vectoring control

For security, the Edge combines keyless entry and engine immobilization. Ford includes a keypad to set up your access code.

Upgrading in trim on the Ford Edge boosts driver assistance with the following:

  • Stop-and-go adaptive cruise control
  • Lane centering assist
  • Evasive steering assist
  • Adaptive headlights
  • Automatic parking assist
