2020 Edge New Car Test Drive
The 2020 Ford Edge mid-size crossover SUV delivers comfort and power, along with impressive technology.
Following a recent refresh, the Edge gets only minimal changes for the 2020 model year, led by new appearance options. All models now include dual-zone automatic climate control. An enhanced Titanium Elite options package includes 20-inch polished wheels and special chrome accents
Available in SE, SEL, Titanium, and ST trims, the Edge spans a simple but sensible range from affordable to affluent. Top-rung Titanium trim features fine leather, chrome trim, and plenty of available technology.
Two engines are available. Base SE, SEL, and Titanium versions employ a potent 250-horsepower turbo-4. The ST (formerly named Sport) gets a 2.7-liter twin-turbo V-6 that generates an impressive 335 horsepower, running on premium-grade gasoline.
Both engines work with an 8-speed automatic transmission. Front-wheel drive is standard, with all-wheel drive an option on all models except the ST, which is AWD-only.
Crash-testing by the NHTSA brought a five-star rating overall, as well as for frontal and side impacts. The IIHS gave Ford's Edge “Good” ratings for each crash test.
