The Ford Edge offers one of the most distinctive styles in the crossover segment, as well as a wide array of engines that range from fast to fuel-efficient. With so much choice and a vast selection of technology features to manage infotainment, including Ford's MyFord Touch system, the Edge will find appeal among those who demand advanced systems in their vehicles.

Introduction

The base SE trim comes loaded with essential features. A 3.5-liter V6 is standard, producing 263 horsepower through the six-speed automatic. Front-wheel drive is standard, with all-wheel drive optional. The 2.0-liter Ecoboost engine with 240 horsepower is optional with front-wheel drive only, but pushes highway fuel economy to 30 MPG – impressive for a midsize crossover. Standard features include 17-inch alloy wheels, power windows, locks and mirrors and air conditioning. Ford's SYNC system is optional. That system controls audio functions, including iPod/iPhone connectivity, through voice commands and connects your device through a USB port.

SEL adds 18-inch alloy wheels, power driver's seat, rear parking sensors and manual gear selection. Navigation is optional on all models equipped with MyFord Touch, the system that adds a touchscreen and touch-sensitive buttons to manage audio and climate controls through SYNC, and also includes two adaptive digital displays in the instrument panel. Limited models benefit from standard leather seats, Sony Audio with HD radio, backup camera and MyFord Touch. And the Sport gets a 3.7-liter V6 with 305 horsepower, sport suspension and special trim inside and out.

The Nissan Murano is also distinctively styled and has a nicer interior, but lacks any optional engines. The Toyota Venza offers a four-cylinder, but Toyota's optional infotainment system isn't as comprehensive as MyFord Touch. The Subaru Outback is efficient and roomy, but the interior is far from luxurious. The Dodge Journey offers a third-row seat and UConnect Touch is easier to use than MyFord Touch, but it's less powerful and less refined.

Ford's Edge gives crossover buyers a lot of choice, something people downsizing from full-size SUVs would appreciate. There's a fuel-efficient model for people who enjoy the efficiency of their car or small crossover but need more space, or a performance model for those who don't want to lose all of the sportiness of a less-practical vehicle. Combine that with a long list of optional features and advanced infotainment systems and any Edge is worth a look if you're in the crossover market.
