2020 ford edge
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.
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.
