What's New

The most noteworthy changes for the 2021 Ford Edge involve technology. A generous 12-inch infotainment touchscreen is now standard on all models. The system runs Ford’s latest SYNC software, and it adds extra USB ports for second-row passengers. Other upgrades include additional sound deadening for a quieter ride, more wheel options, and a couple of new exterior colors.

Choosing Your Ford Edge

The 2021 Edge comes in five trims: SE, SEL, ST-Line, Titanium, and ST. Prices start at $32,495 (after destination fees) for a base model, but the sporty Edge ST starts at around $45,000.

Engine Choices

The Edge is available with two engines, but the majority of models at dealerships will stick to the base unit. An eight-speed automatic transmission is the only option, and all-wheel drive costs about $2,000 extra on most trims.

Engine TypeHorsepowerTorqueFuel Economy (Combined)
2.0L Turbocharged 4-Cylinder250 hp275 lb-ft24 mpg (FWD), 23 mpg (AWD
3.0L Twin-Turbo V6335 hp380 lb-ft21 mpg

The V-6 is reserved for the pricey ST trim, which also comes with standard all-wheel drive. The extra power hurts fuel economy, but it helps the Edge ST cover the 0-60 sprint in under six seconds.

Passenger and Cargo Capacity

Every Edge model seats five, and there’s no option for a third row. Cabin space is ample, and second-row passengers enjoy more than 40 inches of legroom. If you need a third-row option, you may want to consider a Ford Explorer.

Cargo capacity starts at 39.2 cubic feet, and folding the second row opens it up to 73.4. That’s fairly good for the class, although it still falls short of standouts like the Honda Passport.

Safety Features

As a family SUV, the Edge makes safety a priority. Every model comes with automatic emergency braking, active lane control, and blind-spot monitors. Adaptive cruise control is available on SEL trims and above. The Edge earned positive results in federal and independent crash testing, and the IIHS bestowed a Top Safety Pick award.


The new 12-inch infotainment system is generous compared to most competitors. It’s compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, both of which can work wireless.

Also included are voice recognition, a Wi-Fi hotspot, and four USB ports. Wireless charging, navigation, and Bang & Olufsen sound are on the options list.

Ford Edge

SE — From $32,495

As the cheapest member of the family, the Edge SE sticks to the basics. Seats are upholstered in cloth and adjusted manually. In addition to the above safety and infotainment features, the SE comes with rear parking sensors, automatic high beams, and push-button start. The exterior gets LED taillights and 18-inch aluminum wheels.

All-wheel drive is optional, but that’s about it. Aside from the usual accessories of roof racks and cargo nets, the SE doesn’t allow much customization.

SEL — From $35,935

For a relatively modest price increase, the SEL trim adds some welcome creature comforts. Front seats are heated and power-adjustable, and the second row gets an easy-release mechanism for folding. Seats are upholstered in synthetic leather, and the steering wheel gets the real thing. Keyless entry, heated side mirrors, and LED fog lights are also included.

The Edge SEL opens up more packages as well. Adaptive cruise control comes in the Co-Pilot360 Assist+ bundle, along with evasive steering assist and navigation. The Convenience Package adds wireless charging, remote start, and a power liftgate. Standalone options include a heated steering wheel and a power panoramic sunroof.

ST-Line — From $39,685

The ST-Line is a hybrid of the SEL and ST trims. In features and performance, it’s nearly identical to the SEL, but it borrows the aesthetic of the sporty ST. That means blacked-out exterior accents, a honeycomb grille, and exclusive badging. The wheels grow to 20 inches, and the features in the Convenience Package come standard.

Titanium — From $39,685

The Edge Titanium starts at the same price as the ST-Line, but it puts the money toward luxury rather than looks. LED headlights come standard, and sport seats are upholstered in leather. The interior gets ambient lighting, satin accents, a heated steering wheel, and a premium sound system. A hands-free liftgate and rain-sensing wipers round out the upgrades.

To max out the opulence, the Lux Package adds the remaining safety features in addition to adaptive headlights, perforated leather, heated rear seats, and ventilated front seats. Aside from upgraded wheels, little is left on the options list.

Edge ST — From $44,345

The Edge ST is the sporty member of the family. In addition to the more powerful engine, it comes with bucket seats and a stiffer suspension. Features mirror the Titanium trim, with the additional options of 21-inch wheels and upgraded brakes.

CarsDirect Tip

The ST is zippy, but the price of entry is high. We’d stick to the SEL for the best value, and add all-wheel drive or convenience features as necessary.

Aging gracefully - but still aging. Ford was early to the party with its two-row, midsize Ford Edge. It came out before even the Great Recession, a time when sedan sales were as strong as ever and crossovers were still in the early stages of wooing the American buying public. In the intervening years, Ford's prescient crossover has proved successful in its efforts to win over shoppers. Now it faces far more competition than it ever dreamed of in the Aughts - while still riding on a platform not far removed from that of the inaugural model.

Indeed, age is the Achilles heel of the Edge. While many competitors in the past 3-5 years have either been thoroughly redesigned or are otherwise entirely new nameplates, the Edge is going into its sixth year of the current design. In car years, that's a lifetime.

You can see the age in the exterior styling - which is currently undergoing the subtle shift from handsome to dated - as well as the interior. Though Ford has done a commendable sprucing-up the Edge to keep it current, it's undeniably aging - especially when viewed in light of competition such as the Chevrolet Blazer, Toyota Venza, and Hyundai Santa Fe.

Performance. The ace up Ford's sleeve? Performance. On the pricey end of the lineup is the ST, which is a delightful but expensive melding of performance and practicality. It features a twin-turbo 2.7-liter V-6 that doles out 335 horsepower and a stout 380 lb-ft of torque through an eight-speed automatic. If that sounds like too much power for a family hauler, it probably is. We say probably because we're sure there are some like us who feel that there is no such thing as too much power.

Some quick ST stats: all-wheel drive is standard. 0-60 mph in less than six seconds. 20-inch wheels are standard; 21s are available. A chassis sent to finishing school in order to cope with the copious power. The net result of all this is a crossover that has real sporting aspirations. Ford didn't just plaster the ST name on the liftgate; they delivered a well-rounded product that stops and turns as well as it accelerates.

Such a halo product is common among bonafide luxury crossovers, but mainstream models usually adhere to a more value-driven strategy. At $45,000, we doubt the ambitiously-priced ST will move many units off the lot, but we applaud the effort and respect the message it sends.

Lower trims make their case with a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder making 250 horsepower. It gives up about two full seconds on the 0-60 mph run, which drops it to mid-pack among two-row midsize crossovers; faster options include the Honda Passport - which is closer to the ST's 0-60 mph time than the rest of the Edge lineup - and the Toyota Venza.

Speed aside, this turbo-four is nicely refined and has plenty of gumption around town. It guzzles fuel at 21 mpg city, 29 highway, and 24 combined, which isn't a stellar showing compared to some rivals. It also prefers premium fuel.

The Edge doesn't mind cornering, but only the ST savors apexes; the rest simply tolerate them. As you careen through the esses, the Edge comports itself well, mitigating body roll and feeling sufficiently planted. Bigger wheels can hurt the ride, but on 18-inchers, the Edge loafs serenely along.

Ford Edge

Huge new screen and the software to match. For 2021, Ford has made a vertically-oriented 12-inch touchscreen standard on all models, making the Edge a segment leader when it comes to screen size. Embedded in that screen is Ford's latest Sync 4 infotainment system, which is a fairly major step forward compared to its predecessor. It features new capabilities like screen-splitting, over-the-air updates, and wireless smartphone compatibility. Yes, all this is standard even on the cheapest Edge.

This major influx of tech is typically reserved for a major redesign or a mid-cycle refresh. Seeing it here as a lone update towards the end of a product's life goes to show how critical in-car tech is becoming to the car shopping experience. We imagine the big screen and its impressive computing power will drive more shoppers to consider the Edge who may have otherwise wrote it off.

The rest of the competition is still rocking screens ranging from 8-10 inches in size. Some offer wireless smartphone capability, such as the Hyundai Santa Fe, but overall the new screen and Sync software puts the Ford at the front of the pack for touchscreen tech.

Pricey, but still a value. The Edge has more to offer than just a big touchscreen. On the base model, buyers get dual-zone climate control, wifi capability, 18-inch wheels, and a host of driver safety aids such as automatic emergency braking. Other than the cloth upholstery, manually-adjustable seats, and a urethane steering wheel, there isn't much to suggest the base Edge is the bottom feeder.

Other trims pile on the goodies. The SEL adds power heated seats, a leather-wrapped wheel, and keyless entry; the Titanium brings leather, Bang and Olufsen audio, and a hands-free liftgate; the ST-Line brings the style of the ST without its performance - or high price.

Unfortunately, all the models are on the upper end of the pricing scale. At around $32,500, the base model costs $2,000-$4,000 more than the Chevy Blazer and VW Atlas Cross Sport; it costs nearly $8,000 more than the bargain-priced Subaru Forester. The Passport and Venza are priced almost on the nose with the Edge. All that said, the new tech in the Edge makes it something of a value, even if much of the competition is cheaper.

It's a bit of a different story at the top of the lineup. By the time you reach the Titanium and ST trims, you're looking at shelling out between $40,000 and $45,000. To be fair, pretty much every player in this segment save the Forester tops out around here, and many don't even have the added performance capabilities of the Edge ST. Yet we can't help but wonder if that kind of coin is worth it, given that genuine luxury SUVs can be had for a similar price. If a couple grand stands between a Ford and a Mercedes of similar size, which would you rather have?

Final thoughts. The Edge is dulling - there's no doubt about that. But Ford has pulled out their sharpener and brought some bite back to their midsize blade by way of a massive new touchscreen.

Tech isn't a band-aid that can heal the wounds of time, though. Simply put, the Edge is aging - and fast. Word on the street is a replacement is in the works, likely due out in the next year or two. For now, we can look past the familiar sheet metal and the venerable interior thanks to the new touchscreen, which adds newfound value to the bottom end of the Edge lineup.
