2014 Ford Edge Limited 

  • $37k
  • 3.5L V6
  • 18 city 25 hwy
 
All of them offer similar amenities, some offer superior handling characteristics and fuel economy — and none of them feature the maddening MyFord Touch system or the touch-sensitive consoles.

The Edge's interior was updated for 2011, and it still looks and feels like a modern, quality setting.

All engines are mated to a standard six-speed automatic transmission, and the Sport model adds flappy-paddle manual shifters behind the steering wheel.

What People Are Saying Give it to me straight

Handling

The SUV's weight feels even more pronounced in such conditions, too, with the Edge rolling on its suspension, feeling tippy and top-heavy.
by cars.com (Oct, 2013)
All-wheel drive is a $1,950 option on every trim level.

My test car was a Limited trim with front-wheel drive and had an as-tested price of $37,125.

Powertrain

The turbocharged EcoBoost four-cylinder engine is meant as the fuel-economy option, rated a better 21/30 mpg, but it costs extra to get the EcoBoost motor, and spending more to save money makes it something of a wash.
by cars.com (Oct, 2013)
To its credit, the Ford is quieter than many of these competitors and features more engine choices as well.
by cars.com (Oct, 2013)
The base engine is a strong, 3.5-liter V-6 making 285 horsepower and available with either front- or all-wheel drive; a turbocharged, EcoBoost 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine is an extra-cost option on front-wheel-drive models only.

Interior

Overall, the interior material quality looks good.
by cars.com (Oct, 2013)
Ford has done away with many of the switches and controls in the vehicle, replacing them with a touch-sensitive flat panel and voice controls for many systems like navigation, climate control and audio.
by cars.com (Oct, 2013)
The Edge has been around a while, introduced for the 2007 model year and last given a major update for 2011, when it got a new front and rear end and an upgraded interior featuring Ford's controversial MyFord Touch multimedia system.
by cars.com (Oct, 2013)

Engine

A Sport trim level is available, bringing a larger 3.7-liter V-6 out of the related Lincoln MKX and bumping horsepower up to 305, which can be channeled to either just the front or to all four wheels.
by cars.com (Oct, 2013)
Fuel economy for front-wheel-drive models is rated by the EPA at 19/27 mpg city/highway for the base V-6 — not stellar by today's standards but not awful for the category.
by cars.com (Oct, 2013)

Body style

Midsize SUVs are a common sight on American roads these days, having largely taken over for minivans as the top choice for family-hauling duties.
by cars.com (Oct, 2013)
No major changes were made from 2012 to 2013, but the popular SUV didn't really need any, as its update for 2011 prompted many automakers to scramble in an attempt to catch up.
