Reviews Summary

The Ford Edge proves that trends run in cycles. Launched in the early 2000s, the original Edge was one of the first midsize crossover SUVs, sporting car-like styling that sharply contrasted the more traditional-looking Ford Explorer of the time. However, new-car buyers realized they liked the roominess of three-row SUVs like the Explorer more, and interest in the two-row Edge waned.

Now, however, car shoppers are once again eyeing two-row midsize SUVs, this time as an alternative to sedans. The Edge is now part of a growing market segment that includes the Chevrolet Blazer, Honda Passport, Hyundai Santa Fe, Jeep Grand Cherokee, Nissan Murano, and Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport.

Yet while market dynamics have changed, the Edge hasn’t. The current second-generation Edge dates back to the 2015 model year, and even a substantial update undertaken for the 2019 model year is quickly receding in the rearview mirror. The Edge now sits between the much newer Explorer and Ford Escape in the automaker's SUV-heavy lineup.

Aside from some new tech features, the 2021 Ford Edge doesn’t get many significant changes, so we can evaluate it based on our experience with previous model years. As with the 2020 model year, trim levels include SE, SEL, ST-Line, Titanium, and ST.

Reviews Summary

If you’re looking to impress potential new customers with your luxury crossover, tossing a Mustang engine under the hood is a good start. Never mind that it’s not the V8—a turbo 4-cylinder doesn’t mean what it once did. The last time a Mustang had a turbo four was back in the mid-'80s with the SVO, a car my father actually owned. Also a 2.3-liter engine, the SVO managed just 175 hp and still impressed for the time. This time around we're looking at nearly 300, and with the torque to match. Add some sexy interior materials, an optional adaptive suspension, and a panoramic sunroof, and you’ve got a crossover that’s hard to ignore.
