2010 Ford Edge Review

Heavyweight crossover SUV with good crash test scores

Reviewed by Automotive on

In a Nutshell
The 2010 Ford Edge is a five-passenger midsize crossover sport utility vehicle (SUV) that is available in four trim levels: SE Sport Utility, SEL Sport Utility, Limited Sport Utility, and Sport Sport Utility. Powered by a 3.5-liter V-6 engine coupled to a six-speed automatic transmission, the Ford Edge is available with front- or all-wheel drive. With all-wheel-drive, the Edge's frontend is a bit heavy, which hinders road performance.

The Ford Edge is spacious, comfortable, attractive, and practical. Coming only in a two-row seating configuration with enough room for five occupants, the Edge's cabin offers ample cabin space and legroom. The Edge provides a long list of nice amenities, including the Sync connectivity system. The Edge has a good fuel economy rating in the 18 mpg city / 25 mpg highway range and boasts great crash test scores.

New for 2010

For the 2010 Ford Edge, there are only minor appearance and trim changes, for example, the Limited Interior Appearance Package is introduced, which includes Sienna leather upholstery and contrasting stitching on the seats, steering wheel, and shift knob.

Essentials

Engine: 3.5L V-6
Transmission: 6-speed automatic
Body Style: SUV
Trims: SE Sport Utility, SEL Sport Utility, Limited Sport Utility, Sport Sport Utility

On the Outside

The Ford Edge comes with a large chrome grille, but the Edge SEL and higher trims add fog lamps, while wheel sizes range from 17 inches on the SE trim, to 20 inches on that Sport trim, and can go up to 22 inches.

From the Inside

The Ford Edge offers a choice of cloth or leather interior and optional features, such as a nine-speaker stereo, navigation system, and rear-seat entertainment. The maximum cargo space extends to 69.0 cubic-feet when the rear seats are folded down.

Driving Performance

With a choice of front- and all-wheel drive, the 2010 Ford Edge's all-aluminum 3.5-liter V-6 engine generates 265 horsepower and 250 pound-feet of torque mated to a six-speed automatic transmission. Because the Edge is somewhat heavy, especially when fitted with large wheels, it handles more like full-size SUV than a midsize one.

Safety Equipment

Standard safety features on the Ford Edge include six airbags, four-wheel ABS, stability and traction control, seatbelt pre-tensioners, and a crash severity sensor.

FWD: 18 mpg city/25 mpg highway
AWD: 17 mpg city/23 mpg highway
