2018 Ford Edge

The Ford Edge crossover SUV fits between the compact Escape and the large midsize Explorer. Now in its second generation, redesigned for the 2015 model year, the popular Edge is based upon the same foundation as the Ford Fusion sedan.

Except for a new option group, featuring gray wheels and trim pieces, little has changed for the 2018 model year.

Ford offers three engine possibilities and four trim levels: Edge SE, SEL, Titanium, and Sport. Base engine is a turbocharged four-cylinder, making 220 horsepower. When running on Premium (93-octane) gasoline, output escalates substantially: to 245 horsepower and 275 pound-feet of torque.

Next up is a 3.5-liter V6 that develops 280 horsepower and 250 pound-feet. Strong choice, standard in Sport trim, is a twin-turbo, 2.7-liter V6 that generates 315 horsepower and 350 pound-feet of torque when running on Premium-grade gasoline.

Each engine mates with a 6-speed automatic transmission. Front-wheel drive is standard, with all-wheel drive an option. The Sport edition comes only with all-wheel drive.

As expected by its dimensions, the Edge is more spacious inside than Ford's Escape. In terms of appearance, it's sleeker than the huge Expedition with its truck foundation, or even the unibodied Explorer.

Like many vehicles today, the Edge can be equipped with some of the latest active-safety technology. But most features are optional rather than standard, available only on upper trim levels. Available safety systems include blind-spot monitoring, active lane control, adaptive cruise control, forward-collision warning with automatic emergency braking, and a 180-degree front-end camera setup.

All Edges have a rearview camera and a driver's knee airbag. Inflatable rear seatbelts are optional. Top Edge models get a large, configurable instrument cluster to replace the usual gauge setup.

Except for one instance, crash-test scores have been good. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration gave Ford's Edge a five-star overall rating, with five stars for individual tests as well. Crash-testing by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety resulted in Good scores, with the exception of an Acceptable rating for the more stringent small-overlap frontal-impact test. That score kept Edge from receiving a Top Safety Pick designation.
