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

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.
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.
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.
