Editor-in-Chief Greg Migliore: Ford appears to attempt actually arduous to place a few of its merchandise towards Audis, and the Edge is a strong instance of this tactic. It undoubtedly has a premium design, which the large grille, outstanding creases and piercing headlights emphasize. Inside, it feels much less Audi-like, which is ok. Goal excessive and fall somewhat brief; this is not a luxurious crossover. Respectable supplies. Intuitive format. Not as premium because the exterior, however nonetheless aggressive within the class. It is a peppy driver, with loads of juice from the two.zero-liter 4-cylinder that pairs properly with the eight-velocity auto. That powertrain does really feel premium, truly. There’s extra get-up on this factor than I anticipated, and I might guess that is the engine most individuals need (The ST is excessive-powered, however do you actually need that in an Edge?). General, I loved my night time within the Edge. It is snug, robust and somewhat enjoyable to drive. It is even vaguely Audi-esque.
Senior Editor, Inexperienced, John Beltz Snyder: My expectations for Ford SUVs are by no means excessive, but they all the time appear to exceed them. I went on the press launches for the final two Escapes and located I favored them each fairly a bit. Sampling the Expedition went higher than anticipated. I even discovered a factor or two to love concerning the confounding little EcoSport. The Edge was the identical story.
I acquired in to drive it residence, and put it into Sport mode. I used to be completely stunned by the response. It held revs, and the engine excitedly jumped to life with a faucet of the accelerator. I discovered I needed to flip it off in visitors — it was simply too jumpy for cease-and-go driving. Sport was a good way to cube by way of freeway visitors, although.
The Edge additionally gave me my first alternative to make use of wi-fi telephone charging in a car. After my iPhone 7s self-destructed, I just lately upgraded to the eight. I used to be stunned to see it start to cost once I tucked it into the storage bin under the middle stack. I did not know my telephone, or this car, might do this. In accordance with my calculations on the finish of the drive, I used to be getting again about 1 % of my battery each two minutes whereas I left it there. Know-how is fairly nice.
Aside from that, although, I discovered the Edge to be somewhat forgettable. Nonetheless, it was higher than I anticipated, particularly when skilled by way of the appropriate pedal.
Affiliate Editor, Joel Stocksdale: As soon as once more, I’ve discovered myself gained over by Ford’s EcoBoost engines. This Edge with the turbocharged 2.zero-liter is, like the two.7-liter F-one hundred fifty we simply had, all of the crossover you want within the energy division. It makes 250 horsepower and 280 pound-ft of torque, and all of it feels a bit stronger than the numbers recommend. The engine is sort of responsive, and energy and torque keep robust by means of a lot of the rev band. It is also supported by a transmission that has clean shifts and picks gears correctly. Even in Sport mode, it was shifting simply once I needed it to, which is essential since there are not any paddles for guide shifting.
I additionally appreciated that it rides easily and quietly, whereas remaining fairly composed and prepared to nook. Nevertheless, the remainder of the Edge is much less spectacular. The interior is growing older with plenty of middling black plastics and an particularly antiquated vertically-oriented dashboard design. The exterior is completely fantastic, however not particularly memorable. Older Edges with extra brightwork and massive wheels are extra distinctive. Nonetheless, the Edge is a strong selection within the midsize phase for area, consolation and a few candy powertrains. It is only a bit forgettable is all.
