The Ford Edge is a worthy rival in its segment, but faces tough competition from all sides. A disappointing six-speed automatic gearbox is standard on all models, letting down good engines. A flagship 2.7-liter turbo V6 is in the range-topping Sport specification, with a smaller 2.0-liter turbo four on the smaller side, and a larger 3.5-liter six cylinder on the other. SEL trim offers the best bang for your buck with dual-zone climate, powered front seats, and rear park sensors. Available safety features include blind spot monitoring and cross traffic alert.
