2020 ford edge

Ok let’s be honest, Ford makes some really good looking SUVs and the Edge can vouch for that. So, if you are looking for a midsize SUV that has a very nice, slick, sporty looking exterior, the Ford Edge should be on your list. However, looks aren’t everything, so I am going to dig for more details on this handsome SUV.

Model Options

You will turn heads in any of the five trims available on the Edge. The lineup starts with the base SE model, works its way up to SEL, followed by the ST-Line, Titanium and finally ST.   

What’s new for 2020?

The ST-Line trim is new. If you still carry around CD’s, you can leave them at home, because the CD player is discontinued. On all trims, dual-zone automatic climate control is now included. 


The two-row SUV has plenty of room for five passengers. The plush seats are roomy and cushy. That means everyone will be comfortable on a daily commute or road trip. If you will be putting stuff in the trunk, the Edge can accommodate 29 carry-on cases with seats folded. While that is a close match to its competitors the Edge also offers storage cubbies and slightly roomier cabin to make up for it.

The interior design is simple, some might say dated and bland.

Drive Time

A peppy acceleration, quiet cabin, and good fuel economy kind of sums up the drive. But let me break it down for you. 

Four-cylinder models are estimated to get up to 29 mpg highway, and the sportier ST model earned 26 mpg highway. The base turbocharged four-cylinder makes 250 horsepower which should provide good enough power for most customers. If you want more pep, the Edge ST gets 335 horsepower with a twin-turbocharged 2.7-liter V6.

You will find that compared to its rival Mazda CX9, it is not as light on its wheels, but it is an enjoyable drive. The outward visibility is hindered by the thick roof pillars and blind spots.

Tech and Safety

The base system’s small screen and single USB port might not satisfy many. With that being said, the fix is upgrading to a higher model. The SEL adds more connectivity, including an 8.0-inch touchscreen, the Sync 3 software, and Applelink. Wifi hotspot is standard across the range, and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto make their way into this package to add another layer of connectivity.

Driver-assistance features are more accessible. Standard features include automated emergency braking, blind-spot monitoring, and lane-keeping assist.

Final Thoughts

A handsome ride with enough room for my friends is a great start. Then, a peppy acceleration with good fuel economy? This is the kind of vehicle you want to see in person, sit in and take for a test drive. Add the standard safety features and you have a solid package. The small screen on the base model is not a deal breaker. Who needs a large screen to distract them anyway? The amount of standard technology is typical for vehicles in this category.
