The Ford Edge is the American brand's mid-size crossover model, a five-seater that slots in below the Explorer.
What's New / Key Changes from Last Year
For 2020, Ford has shuffled some features around so that SE now comes standard with dual-zone automatic climate control, but can no longer be optioned with an auto-dimming rearview mirror. As well, Titanium and ST models lose their CD players.
Ford offers the Edge in SE, SEL, Titanium, and ST trims. The first three share a 2.0L turbocharged engine while the ST gets a 2.7L turbo V6. AWD is standard in all but SEL, which starts out with FWD. An eight-speed transmission is included in all trims.
Edge SE comes with engine auto stop/start, dual-zone climate control, four 12-volt power points, blind spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert, passive keyless entry, a tilt-and-telescopic steering wheel, power door locks, mirrors and windows, Sync 3 infotainment with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, cloth upholstery, manual front seats, 18-inch wheels, auto on/off LED headlights, LED taillights, LED daytime running lights, and rain-sensing wipers.
Standard safety kit includes forward collision alert with automatic braking, lane keeping assist, and Co-Pilot 360.
SEL trim adds an auto-dimming rearview mirror, a leather-trimmed steering wheel, two 4.2-inch gauge cluster displays, upgraded cloth upholstery, 10-way driver and six-way front passenger power seat adjustments, heated front seats, remote engine start, LED fog lights, heated side mirrors, LED signature lighting, backup sensors, and a keyless entry keypad.
The Titanium package includes ambient lighting, side mirror memory settings, a power-adjustable steering column, a hands-free tailgate, wireless smartphone charging, a B&O stereo, an integrated garage door opener, leather upholstery, a 10-way front passenger seat, and 19-inch wheels.
Finally, ST models build on SEL and Titanium trims with a performance-tuned suspension, aluminum pedals, leather-and-suede seats, and 20-inch wheels.
Ford's options are bundled into packages, with some key features available in various trims being adaptive cruise control, a hands-free tailgate, wireless smartphone charging, a heated steering wheel, navigation, stereo upgrades, ventilated front seats, heated rear seats, adaptive headlights, a panoramic sunroof, and a windshield wiper de-icer.
Ford's fuel consumption estimates for the Edge are 11.2/8.1 L/100 km (city/highway) with the 2.0L engine and FWD, and 11.4/8.3 for 2.0L/AWD models. Edge ST and its turbo V6 is rated 12.5/9.2 L/100 km.
The Ford Edge competes with a number of other five-seat mid-sizers.
