2018 Ford Edge OVERVIEW

The Ford Edge has found a comfortable space within Ford’s SUV lineup with dimensions that split the smaller Escape and the larger Explorer. Already approaching this generation’s third year, it remains a popular option for consumers that want a crossover with size, but don't need an Explorer's level of utility.

What's New for 2018

Changes for the 2018 model year include the new SEL Sport Appearance Package and the expanded availability of the Safe and Smart Package.

Choosing Your Ford Edge

The Edge offers three engine choices across its four trim levels – each is attached to a six-speed automatic transmission and is available with all-wheel drive, which adds $1,995 across the board.

The 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder serves as the base on the SE, SEL, and Titanium. With a peak power output of 245 horsepower and 275 pound-feet of torque, it returns EPA ratings of 20 miles per gallon in the city, 29 mpg on the highway, and 24 combined – adding all-wheel drive reduces the highway and combined ratings to 27 and 23 mpg.

A 3.5-liter naturally aspirated V6 is available as a $625 option on the SEL and Titanium and provides 280 hp, although with only 250 lb-ft of torque, it's down on the turbo. Ordering the V6 will drop the EPA ratings to 17 mpg city, 26 mpg highway, and 20 mpg combined for the FWD model. All-wheel drive drops the EPA ratings by three mpg on the highway.

The Edge Sport is the hot rod of the lineup, running a 2.7-liter, twin-turbocharged V6 that puts out 315 hp and 350 lb-ft of torque. AWD comes standard. Despite this significant power increase over the 3.5-liter V6, the Edge Sport is actually one mpg more efficient on the highway and combined ratings – 17 city, 24 highway, and 20 combined – than the 3.5-liter with all-wheel drive.


The Ford Edge SE starts at $30,215 (including $995 for destination charges) includes push-button start, 18-inch wheels, LED taillights, and a six-speaker audio system with Ford's Sync voice command system as standard. Options are limited however to rear inflatable safety belts, dual-headrest DVD players, and a few other minor accessories.


The $32,950 Edge SEL offers a more appealing level of content for not a lot more money. It also grants access to the V6 engine option.

Standard features include dual zone automatic temperature control, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, heated mirrors with integrated turn signals, LED running lights, SiriusXM satellite radio, and a 10-way power driver's seat.

The SEL opens up the options catalog significantly, but in most cases, you'll need to add the so-called 201A Equipment Group, a $2,910 package that adds the Sync 3 infotainment system, a nine-speaker audio system, heated front seats, and leather upholstery.

The Safe and Smart Package is an exception to that rule, though. It costs $1,295 but that reasonable price includes adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking, blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic assist, lane keeping assist, automatic high beams, and rain-sensing wipers. You want this package.

The $1,295 SEL Sport Appearance Package does require the 201A Equipment Group, and it also introduces 19-inch wheels, smoked headlamps, a dark gray grille, spoiler, and mirror caps, and cloth seats with suede inserts. The $400 Cold Weather Package adds a heated steering wheel (and not much else), while the $1,695 Convenience Package brings in navigation, a foot-activated power liftgate, remote start, and an alarm system.

The main standalone option is a $1,595 panoramic sunroof.


The $36,925 Titanium trim adds standard 19-inch wheels, heated front seats, leather upholstery, a power tailgate, and premium audio as standard equipment.

For $3,400, the 301A Equipment Group includes a panoramic roof, ventilated seats, heated rear seats, navigation, and remote start. Opting instead for the 302A Equipment Group ($6,615) includes the 301A package, the Safe and Smart Package, active park assist, a 180-degree front camera, HID headlights, and inflatable rear seatbelts.

At the same time, the Safe and Smart Package is available as a standalone option for the same price as the SEL. The Cold Weather Package is also available – its price and content are unchanged.


The $41,670 Sport trim ($40,675 plus destination) is enticing for its turbocharged EcoBoost V6 while the sport-tuned suspension and available summer tires (and standard 20-inch wheels) are another reminder that this is supposed to be the fun Edge. All-wheel drive, normally a $1,995 option, is standard while the option list is similar to that of the Titanium trim.

The Edge Sport wears a unique body kit with a black grille and dual exhausts integrated in the rear fascia for a more aggressive look. In the cabin, sporty leather seats with suede upholstery present a more enthusiastic atmosphere.

Aside from the $3,840 401A Equipment Group (it's basically the Titanium's 302A package), optional extras and packages mirror the Edge Titanium.

CarsDirect Tip

A crossover for older families and empty nesters, the Edge is a stylish choice that's available as both an efficient entry and a sporting one. But we'd recommend simply grabbing the SEL and its standard 2.0-liter, turbocharged four-cylinder for a vehicle that should leave most owners happy.
