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.

Ford Edge

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.

Ford Edge


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.

Ford Edge


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.

Ford Edge


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.

Ford Edge


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.

The 2018 Ford Edge beckons with clean lines, a spacious interior, and a poised ride on most models, but disappoints with subpar seats, a stiff ride on the sportiest model, and a fuel-wasting all-wheel-drive system.

Best Value

Starting at $30,310 for a front-wheel-drive SE, prices rise through SEL and Titanium trims to over $51,000 for a fully-optioned all-wheel-drive Sport model. The base engine on SE, SEL, and Titanium models is a 245-horsepower, 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder, while a 280-hp, 3.5-liter V6 is optional on the SEL and Titanium. Standard on the Sport model is a 315-hp twin-turbocharged V6. All three engines are paired to a six-speed automatic transmission.

The SE comes with a full range of typical power features and, for good measure, automatic headlights that are also wiper-activated, a rearview camera, keyless entry with push-button start, 18-inch alloy wheels, rear privacy glass, and a leather-wrapped shift knob.

We'd pass on the base S and opt for the SEL, which adds dual zone automatic climate control, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, satellite radio, upgraded seat trim, a 10-way power driver seat and six-way power front passenger seat, a second-row rear seat back release, a reverse sensing system, heated outside mirrors, LED signature lighting, a keyless entry pad, and access to a number of advanced safety features.

Here's how we'd build it:

  • Model: 2018 Ford Edge SEL
  • Engine: 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder
  • Output: 260 hp / 240 lb-ft
  • Transmission: Six-speed automatic
  • Drivetrain: All-wheel drive
  • MPG: 20 City / 27 Hwy
  • Options: Intelligent All-Wheel Drive ($1,995), Equipment Group 201A ($2,910, Sync 3 infotainment, an 8.0-inch touchscreen, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto capability, leather seats, heated front seats, premium audio), Safe and Smart Package ($1,295, adaptive cruise control, automatic emergency braking, forward collision warning, automatic high beams, blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, lane keeping assist, an auto-dimming driver's outside mirror, rain-sensing wipers).
  • Base Price:$33,045 (including the $995 destination charge)
  • Best Value Price:$38,645


Ford Edge

Like the Fusion on which it's based, the Edge delivers a crisp, firm, well-isolated ride with precise road feel and admirable body control. The standard electric steering system tracks nicely at freeway speeds and offers plenty of feedback in curves; the adaptive system on Titanium and Sport models provides additional input at low speeds, while offering additional on-center feel on the highway. The 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine is more than adequate for most drivers, the 3.5-liter V6 is stronger in the mid-range and an overall solid performer, while the 2.7-liter turbo packs a punch throughout its rev range. Mated to all three is a quick six-speed automatic that shifts crisply.

But things are far from perfect as the Sport model's firm dampers are nearly too firm and uncompromising for everyday driving – transmitting potholes and uneven road surfaces directly into the cabin. On top of that, advanced safety features aren't available on the base model and the Edge's all-wheel-drive system can't be decoupled from the drivetrain, with a big hit to fuel economy the result.


A crisp, uncluttered body is wrapped around an appealing cabin with plenty of soft-touch surfaces and an upright dash centered around a high-resolution touchscreen in most models. The front seats are comfortable, while intuitive physical buttons control everything from volume and climate settings to heat and ventilation.

On the flip side, lighter-toned interiors are unavailable, the gloss-black trim manages to attract fingerprints, and the short, flat rear seat cushions don't do the interior justice. And while we're at it, the optional panoramic roof eats into headroom, while the Edge lacks the clever multiple-tier cargo systems of rivals.

The Best and Worst Things

The Edge's quick steering, composed ride, and wide range of engines are impressive, but its seats don't do the interior justice, and buyers should experience the Sport model's ride before making a purchase decision.

Right For? Wrong For?

Ford Edge

A firm, well-isolated ride, nicely-detailed cabin, and plenty of passenger and cargo room should appeal to families as well as empty-nesters.

The lack of advanced safety features on the entry-level model could be a turn off for value-oriented safety-conscious buyers.

The Bottom Line

Despite mediocre seats, the Sport model's stiff ride, and an all-wheel-drive system that's less than cutting edge, the 2018 Ford Edge is a solid choice in its class thanks to its clean looks, stellar ride and handling, and nicely-appointed cabin.
