Overview

Ever since its 2007 debut, Ford's midsize crossover has consistently been a popular choice for active families seeking a vehicle that’s more efficient and nimble than a traditional SUV. A total redesign for the 2015 model year gave the Edge a boost in style and refinement, without reducing its capability and versatility. For 2016, SYNC 3 infotainment became available as a replacement for the oft-criticized MyFord Touch system. Built on the same platform as the highly-regarded Fusion sedan, the Edge comes with a choice of three engines, with front-drive or all-wheel drive.

What's New for 2017

Changes are minimal for the 2017 model year. Premium polished aluminum 20-inch wheels now are available for the Titanium trim. Four new body colors are offered: Canyon Ridge, Blue Jeans, White Gold, and Burgundy Velvet.

Choosing Your Ford Edge

Even though its overall shape may be familiar, the second-generation Edge’s body incorporates current Ford styling touches. Front-wheel drive is standard, while all-wheel drive is a $1,995 option (except on the Sport, where it's standard).

Four trim levels are offered: SE, SEL, Titanium, and Sport. Buyers of the SEL and Titanium choose between a standard 2-liter EcoBoost turbocharged four-cylinder engine or an optional 3.5-liter V6, which costs $625 extra and drops EPA-estimated fuel economy appreciably. The four-cylinder with front-drive is rated 20 mpg in city driving (21 mpg with stop/start technology) and 29 mpg on the highway. That contrasts with a mere 17/26 mpg for the V6.

As for numerical output, the four-cylinder engine develops 245 horsepower, versus 280 horsepower for the V6. The EcoBoost engine not only yields better fuel economy, but greater maximum torque. On the other hand, smoother output from the V6 might make it worth considering, despite the additional cost and mileage shortfall. Both engines mate with a six-speed automatic transmission.

Ford offers a third powertrain choice, exclusive to the Sport: a twin-turbocharged 2.7-liter V6 making 315 horsepower and 350 pound-feet of torque. Available only with all-wheel drive, the Sport can accelerate swiftly enough to embarrass a few muscle cars. A firmer suspension and 20-inch wheels provide confident road moves to match that motivation. This extra muscle makes the Sport the most costly Edge, topping $40,000. Fuel economy trails the 3.5-liter V6 at 17/24 mpg (city/highway). You'll know immediately if a Sport is right for you; but for most buyers, it's not a contender.

Each Edge comes with a significant list of standard features, including a rearview camera and Ford's continuously improving SYNC stereo/Bluetooth/connectivity system. SYNC 3 goes into upper models. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) gave the current Edge a five-star rating overall, as well as in front and side crash-testing.

Ford Edge

SE

Starting at $29,845 (destination charge included), the base trim level comes with the 2-liter EcoBoost engine, cloth upholstery, paddle shifters, SYNC infotainment, air conditioning, power windows/locks/mirrors, remote keyless entry, pushbutton start, six-speaker audio with CD, and 18-inch aluminum wheels. All-wheel drive adds $1,995.

Ford Edge

SEL

Stepping up a notch adds dual-zone automatic temperature control, heated mirrors with integrated turn signals, power front seats, reverse sensing, an auto-dimming mirror, upgraded cloth upholstery, LED exterior lighting, and 18-inch painted aluminum wheels.

Ford Edge

Titanium

Additional features on the Titanium, which lists for $3,810 more than the SEL, include leather-trimmed seat upholstery, SYNC 3, a hands-free power liftgate, chrome exterior trim, Sony audio with HD radio, and 19-inch wheels.

Ford Edge

Sport

In addition to the 2.7-liter engine and all-wheel drive, the Sport trim includes a sport-tuned suspension, a piano black grille, heated front seats with driver memory, perforated leather upholstery with sueded inserts, aluminum pedals, and 20-inch wheels. An adaptive steering system uses a motor within the steering column to adjust response based on vehicle speed. It’s standard on the Edge Sport and optional on the Titanium trim. At $41,795, the Sport is the most expensive Edge model.

Ford's practice of limiting certain options to higher trim levels applies to the Edge. The Technology package, which includes navigation, blind spot monitoring, and rear cross-traffic alert, is only available on the SEL, Titanium, and Sport. Additional safety options include lane keeping assist, adaptive cruise control, collision warning, and an automated parking system. A Class II towing package with sway control is offered on SEL and Titanium only.

CarsDirect Tip

If you can survive without a few luxury items and won't be towing a trailer, the Edge SE has just about everything most folks need in a highly capable family crossover. Moving up to the SEL for an additional $2,840 gives you access to plenty of functional and comfort options. The Titanium's price premium ($3,810) compared to the SEL makes little sense, given its relatively minor upgrades.

Two years removed from a full redesign, the Ford Edge continues into 2017 with no changes after a handful of tweaks in 2016. Despite being one of the five best-selling midsize crossovers in the US in 2016, the Edge is not without its missteps, like its iffy base engine and subpar front seats.

Pricing and Equipment

The 2017 Ford Edge starts at $28,950 for the base SE trim. We expect this to be one of the more popular trims, as its price is competitive and the standard features are plentiful. The latter consists of:

  • Eighteen-inch alloy wheels
  • Active grille shutters for improved aerodynamics
  • An acoustic windshield
  • LED taillights
  • Six-speaker stereo
  • Paddle shifters

A 245-horsepower 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine comes standard on the SE, but buyers looking for more power can go with the SEL or Titanium model, which use a 3.5-liter V6 with 280 hp. There is also a Sport trim with a 315-hp 2.7-liter twin-turbocharged V6.

Performance Pros

Ford Edge
  • A tight ride and quick steering gives the Edge a sense of agility that most crossovers lack.
  • Three available engines provide plenty of options for all buyers.
  • Up to a 3,500-pound towing capacity.

Performance Cons

  • Sport model may be a little too firm for some.
  • With its base engine, the Edge is on the sluggish side.
  • Must run premium fuel in the 2.0-liter turbo engine to get full power.

Interior Pros

  • Plenty of soft-touch materials.
  • There are tons of storage spaces to stash all those smaller items.
  • Plenty of cargo room: 39.2 cubic feet with the seats up and 73.4 cubes with the seats folded.

Interior Cons

Ford Edge
  • The front seats are not comfortable, especially for longer hauls.
  • Large enough to fit a third row, but it’s not even an option.

The Most Pleasant Surprise

Beyond the base engine’s issues, the Ford Edge delivers solid performance. Its two V6 engines deliver plenty of pop, and the suspension system is surprisingly eager to play in the turns. The steering is also more precise than expected, especially in the Sport trim.

The Least Pleasant Surprise

With the cabin put together as well as it is, we'd expect supportive front seats on long journeys. Unfortunately, the Edge doesn't deliver, leaving drivers with seat bottoms are too short and lack any thigh support.

The Bottom Line

The Ford Edge isn’t without its shortcomings, but its benefits are plentiful. Specifically, buyers looking for a roomy cabin (both for people and cargo) will be pleased with the Edge's nearly 40 cubes of cargo room with the rear seats upright. Additionally, a 3,500-pound towing capacity opens it up to some boat or camper owners. But buyers planning a lot of long trips in the Edge may find its seats unacceptably uncomfortable.
