What's New

The 2023 Ford Edge soldiers on for yet another year with very little change. There are some slight shuffling of equipment applications and a couple of obligatory exterior color updates.

Choosing Your Ford Edge

The Edge is available in five trims, SE, SEL, ST-Line, Titanium, and ST. Base prices range from $39,440 to $47,980.

Engine Choices

Most Edge trims feature a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that produces 250 horsepower and 275 pound-feet of torque. The ST takes on a sportier attitude with a 2.7-liter turbocharged V6 that increases power ratings to 335 horsepower and 380 pound-feet of torque.

The smaller engine is mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission while the ST features a seven-speed unit. Both engines route power to a standard all-wheel-drive system.

The Edge earns an EPA-estimated 23 miles per gallon combined or 21 MPG with the more powerful engine and the ST trim’s other performance-focused features.

Passenger and Cargo Capacity

The Edge is a two-row five-seater and it stretches 188.8 inches in length and sits 75.9 inches wide. That provides a spacious interior with the rear passengers enjoying 40.3 inches of headroom and 40.6 inches of legroom and a large cargo area measuring 39.2 cubic feet of cargo volume behind the rear seat and 73.4 cubic feet with it folded.

The Edge can tow 1,500 pounds or 3,500 pounds when equipped with the optional towing package for $435.

Ford Edge

Safety Features

The standard trim features automatic emergency braking, blind-spot detection, lane-keep assist, and automatic high beams. Full-speed adaptive cruise control with lane centering is offered on the SEL-and-up trims through the $1,195 Co-Pilot360 Assist+ package. The Titanium and ST trims offer a 180-degree front camera and an advanced parking assist system.

The Edge earns Good crashworthiness scores from IIHS but a Poor headlight rating for most trims. NHTSA awards the Edge with a five-star overall rating.


All trims feature a 12-inch portrait-style touchscreen, SiriusXM, a Wi-Fi hotspot, six speakers, USB outlets, and two 12-volt power outlets. A 110-volt outlet and wireless charging pad are available through the SEL’s Convenience Package and are included in the higher trim levels. The Titanium and ST trims feature a 12-speaker Bang & Olufsen sound system.

The ST offers the 401A Equipment Group for $5,760 which adds the features of the Elite Package plus a panoramic sunroof.

For those who take their Ford Performance ST badge seriously, Ford offers the ST Performance Brake Package for $2,695 and it includes 21-inch black wheels, larger vented front and rear rotors, painted red brake calipers with performance brake pads and vented brake shields, and performance rubber.

CarsDirect Tip

The Edge is best suited for practical daily duty and for that, we like the SEL trim level with the Convenience Package which adds several key features while keeping the bottom line reasonable.

Past Its Prime. The 2023 Ford Edge enters a new model year without any major changes. That’s not a good thing, as the Edge, which was introduced as a fully redesigned model in 2015, is stale. Nearly every other two-row midsize SUV in the segment is newer than the Edge, making things worse for the model. After eight model years on sale, the Edge is in need of a refresh or a large update. We’re not sure that an update for the Edge will come anytime soon.

High-Performance ST Trim. While the Edge may be older than most midsize SUVs in the segment, the SUV does have one thing its competitors don’t – a high-performance model. The Edge ST has some serious firepower from its V6 engine and delivers sporty handling thanks to suspension upgrades.

The standard Edge comes with a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that makes 250 horsepower and 280 pound-feet of torque. The engine is paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission that delivers smooth shifts. For most shoppers, the base engine provides plenty of pep for daily use, but shoppers looking for something a little more exciting should look into the ST trim.

The ST comes with a twin-turbocharged 2.7-liter V6 engine that makes 335 hp and 380 lb-ft of torque. It’s one of the more powerful engines in the class and delivers a quick zero-to-60-mph time of 6.1 seconds. With sport suspension, the Edge ST is far more enjoyable to drive than the regular Edge but still manages to strike a nice balance of athleticism and everyday comfort.

Decent Value Proposition. With a starting price tag of $39,440 (with destination), the Edge comes well-equipped for its competitive starting price. Standard features on the Edge include dual-zone automatic climate control, keyless entry, cloth upholstery, manually adjustable front seats 18-inch wheels, and LED headlights. Where the Edge really impresses is with its standard tech features.

The Edge comes with a 12-inch touchscreen that’s vertically oriented, Ford’s slick SYNC 4 infotainment system, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, four USB ports, a Wi-Fi hotspot, six audio speakers, and Amazon Alexa. The 12-inch touchscreen is a highlight of the cabin, featuring sharp graphics and quick response times. Ford doesn’t offer a lot of tech upgrades for the Edge but navigation, a 12-speaker Bang & Olufsen audio system, and a wireless charging pad are optional.

Buyers looking to get the most value-packed Edge should check out the SEL trim. It adds synthetic leather upholstery, power-adjustable front seats, heated front seats, and nine audio speakers to feel slightly more upscale than the base SE. It’s not a huge upgrade either with a price tag that’s $1,400 more than the SE’s.

Great Safety Record. The Ford Co-Pilot360 suite of advanced safety features is standard on every Edge. It includes features like forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, blind spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, lane departure warning, lane keeping assist, pedestrian detection, and automatic high-beam assist. The SUV comes with a great list of safety equipment for the class. The Ford Co-Pilot360 Assist+ suite of safety features is available starting on the SEL trim. Features with the more advanced package include adaptive cruise control, lane centering assist, and evasive steering assist.

Despite being an older SUV, the Edge earns high scores in crash tests. The NHTSA gave the midsize SUV a five-star overall safety rating. In the IIHS testing, the SUV earned a Top Safety Pick award. It missed out on the organization’s highest award because of its headlights. The standard headlights on the Edge earned a rating of Poor. Moving up to the Titanium or ST trim and opting for the major available package brings improved headlights that earn an Acceptable rating.

Dated Design, Poor Materials. Take a look at some of the Edge’s competitors like the Honda Passport, Hyundai Santa Fe, Chevrolet Blazer, and Nissan Murano and one thing becomes clear – the Edge has a muted design that’s far too conservative for the segment. The ST trim spices things up with a sporty body kit and larger wheels, but it’s nowhere near as stylish as other options in the segment.

While the exterior design of the Edge isn’t anything to write home about, the SUV’s interior design is a huge letdown. The cabin shows the SUV’s age and more confusing dashboard design. The central touchscreen is positioned in the middle of a curving dash that has vertically oriented vents and oddly placed physical controls. It’s like Ford’s designers simply placed the largest screen possible onto the dashboard without considering the rest of the Edge’s design. The cabin is further let down by misaligned trim pieces and lackluster interior materials.

Final Thoughts. In this day and age, the 2023 Ford Edge struggles to be a competitive option in the segment. Unless you’re looking for a performance SUV and are interested in purchasing the Edge ST, we recommend staying away from the Edge. It doesn’t have the same sharp styling, upscale interior, off-roading capability, or comfortable seats as rivals, making it feel like a blast from the past.

In contrast, the Hyundai Santa Fe is a much better midsize SUV than the Edge. It has standout styling, affordable pricing, a comfortable ride, a well-rounded lineup of engines, an extensive lineup of trims, and a high-quality cabin.

The Jeep Grand Cherokee is another great option in the class. It has a premium design, a high-end interior, and excellent off-roading capability. It’s available with a wide range of engines and has a roomy interior.
