What the critics have to say…
The Ford Edge is a spacious everyday midsize SUV with upscale aspirations. It’s meant more for pavement than any sort of off-roading, but it can be had with AWD.Motortrend
HOW DOES IT DRIVE?
Overall, the turbo four-cylinder engine is up to the task of moving the Edge. At freeway speeds, the acceleration could be better. Its responses are heavily damped, but the thrust it ultimately delivers is generally satisfactory. Our test vehicle did 0-60 mph in 7.5 seconds. Consistently agreeable steering, handling and braking give the Edge good manners even if it won’t quicken your pulse.Edmunds
IS IT RELIABLE AND HIGH QUALITY?
Is the Ford Edge Reliable?
The 2021 Edge does not yet have a predicted reliability score.
Ford Edge Warranty
Ford covers the Edge with a three-year/36,000-mile limited warranty and a five-year/60,000-mile powertrain warranty.
HOW COMFORTABLE IS IT?
The Edge’s comfortable front seats offer supportive bolsters and soft leather, but the rear seats are fairly flat and shapeless. The reclining rear seatback is a nice touch, though. The suspension and body dampen out moderate-size bumps in the road pretty well, but smaller bumps and imperfect pavement actually make the Edge feel a little bouncy.Edmunds
WHAT IS THE INTERIOR LIKE?
Plenty spacious for four adults, the Edge’s cabin is a comfortable place for a commute or a road trip. Materials throughout the cabin are nicely chosen, but panel fit and finish could be better; we noticed a few misaligned dashboard pieces in our test vehicle. Otherwise, the interior design is simple and understated, with plenty of room for people and cargo.Car and Driver
WHAT IS THE TECHNOLOGY LIKE?
The Ford Edge now includes the latest version of Ford’s Sync infotainment system. That includes a tall 12-inch touchscreen display. The navigation system is one of the best you’ll find in any car today, and the new screen looks crisp and is responsive to use.Edmunds
WHAT IS THE CARGO SPACE LIKE?
If putting junk in the trunk is important to you, the two-row-crossover segment is a great enabler. With the rear seats folded, the Edge accommodated 29 of our carry-on suitcases. Its competitors are all closely matched in cargo room, but the Edge’s thoughtful storage cubbies and slightly roomier cabin might seal the deal.Car and Driver
IS THIS VEHICLE A GOOD VALUE?
Buyers perceive value in different ways, but the Edge should rank high with people who prioritize comfort, technology and active safety. The base Edge with its 2.0-liter turbo four-cylinder stacks up well against most competitors and offers a generous set of standard features.Edmunds
IS THE Ford Edge A GOOD SUV?
The 2021 Ford Edge is a good midsize SUV by most standards. Because of its respectable combination of cargo and passenger space, safety and reliability ratings, positive reviews from automotive journalists, and available family-friendly features, we named the Edge a finalist for our 2021 Best 2-Row SUV for Families award. The Edge has a roomy five-seat interior with an easy-to-use infotainment system, lots of active safety features, and decent cargo space. It’s comfortable to drive day to day, and its turbocharged engines yield peppy acceleration and above-average fuel economy. Good crash safety ratings also inspire confidence.USNews
SHOULD I BUY THE Ford Edge?
The 2021 Ford Edge is worth a look if you’re shopping for a two-row midsize SUV, but perhaps not as a first pick. The Hyundai Santa Fe is a better value, thanks to its lower starting price and higher-end cabin materials. The Honda Passport and Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport both offer a bit more cargo-carrying and towing ability than the Edge.USNews
THE FINAL WORD
Tech upgrades and features keeps the Ford Edge competitive in the jam-packed midsize SUV class. It just isn’t enough to make the Edge a class leader, especially when compared to fresher rivals like the Hyundai Santa Fe, Honda Passport, and Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport.
