Expert Rating

4.4 (Excellent)
MPG

Unlike other websites and magazines, our ratings are not based solely on a singular road test, but rather a more encompassing batch of criteria: quality, safety, comfort, performance, fuel economy, reliability history and value. When comparing vehicles using our Rating System, it's important to note that the rating earned by each vehicle correlates only to the models within its class. For example, a compact car cannot be compared to a SUV—They are different vehicles altogether.

You can interpret our ratings in the following way:

5-Star: Outstanding vehicle. Only the most exceptional vehicles achieve this rating.

4-Star: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.

3-Star: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.

2-Star: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.

1-Star: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.

2014 Ford Edge OVERVIEW

An excellent choice in the midsize crossover segment, the Edge slots between the smaller Escape and the larger Explorer models in Ford's crossover lineup.

What's New for 2014

A new EcoBoost four-cylinder engine delivers the performance of a V6 with the benefits of a smaller engine, including fuel economy up to 30 mpg. The Edge also offers high tech features like an available blind spot monitor with cross traffic alert and adaptive cruise control.

Choosing Your Ford Edge

The Ford Edge is similar to the Lincoln MKX, which also shares a platform with the Ford Fusion and Lincoln MKZ sedans. Unlike many competitors in its segment, the Edge has no third row, so seating is strictly limited to five. Those five people, though, will experience a refined ride in a spacious cabin with plenty of room for cargo.

The 2014 Ford Edge can be tailored to a variety of tastes and budgets with four trim levels and three engines:

  • The new 2-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder delivers an EPA-estimated 21 mpg city and 31 mpg highway while pumping out 240 horsepower and 270 pound-feet of torque, and is standard for front-wheel drive Edges in SE, SEL and Limited trim.
  • The 3.5-liter V6 with 285 horsepower and 253 pound-feet of torque is standard on all-wheel drive SE, SEL and Limited models, and optional with front-wheel drive. Mileage with all-wheel drive is 18 mpg city and 25 mpg highway; this improves with front-wheel drive to 19 mpg city and 27 mph highway.
  • A 3.7 liter V6 producing 305 horsepower and 280 pound-feet of torque powers all Sports, whether front-wheel or all-wheel drive. With front-wheel drive it delivers 19 mpg city and 26 mpg highway; this drops to 17 mpg city and 23 mpg highway in all-wheel drive.

A six-speed automatic transmission is standard across the Edge lineup.

Base prices rise nearly $10,000 as you move up through the trim levels, and this disparity is definitely reflected in equipment levels.

SE

The base Edge comes with an MSRP to rival some compact crossovers, but not much else. It also has a limited list of options. Unless a bargain basement price is your top priority, we suggest skipping past the SE to the SEL or Limited.

SEL

The SEL adds over $3,000 to the Edge's MSRP, but offers more standard features including dual-zone automatic climate control. It also grants access to optional equipment like leather upholstery, a power liftgate and a panoramic roof.

Limited

Add another $2,000 and you get several luxury and convenience features like heated front seats, a rearview camera and SYNC with MyFord Touch. Options include HID headlights, push-button start and adaptive cruise control.

CarsDirect Tip

If you don’t require all-wheel drive, the 2-liter EcoBoost delivers great performance and good fuel economy—we recommend a front-wheel drive Edge SEL with the four-cylinder engine.
