Should Ford’s Edge Be In Your Crossover Shopping List?

Are you looking for a near-sporty crossover with near-premium looks? The Ford Edge could be a great choice, as long as you don’t need seven seats.

The 2017 Edge is well equipped for the urban landscape, as Kelley Blue Book’s Micah Muzio will point out. Buyers have a choice of three engines and they can get the car with plenty of on-board features that ultimately make their lives easier.

Furthermore, if you’re a fan of the Edge’s edges (pun intended), you might even consider purchasing one of the more expensive versions, like the Titanium or the Sport, although you should know that the much larger Explorer is almost right there with the Edge in terms of pricing.

Still, the more stylish Edge does a good job with practicality, able to house large voluminous objects in the trunk, while leaving plenty of room in the back for three adults. Speaking of the interior, it’s somewhat elegant with good quality materials, plus it features lots of places to store your valuables.

Finally, on the road, the handling is decent, although Muzio recommends you go for the Sport version which features a tuned suspension, helping this SUV tackle corners with more poise.

      He’s not a bad reviewer of vehicles but he mistakenly believes he’s funny.

      • YEAH, HE’S NOT A BAD REVIEWER IT’S JUST THE MUGGING FOR THE CAMERA TAKES TOO MUCH AWAY FROM IT.

          Can’t disagree.

    I like the look of Sport version, although the whole appearance is downgraded by those ugly whitish tail lights

    Outside of the F-Series, the Edge is probably Ford’s most competitive product. The Sport is the model to get. That 2.7T is a sweetheart. It should be even better when Ford rolls out the 8- or 9-speed for MY 2019.

      The Sport model can’t tow squat. The 2.7 is OK, but the 3.5 has a lot of potential, which I wish Ford would realize. The Edge handles decently and can haul a decent amount when not in “Sport” trim. More HP and a sport handling package that didn’t compromise towing capacity is what I’d like to see.

    Outdated and overpriced. Good thing American cars can be discounted like 20-30% off of MSRP, but then there’s the depreciation you have to deal with on the other end.

    I want a 400hp Edge with proper exhaust note ok

      You might get one next year, but if you do it’ll be wearing a Lincoln badge. I expect the Continental’s 3.0T to make it into the MKX for the 2019 MY.
