2023 Edge

Viewed on its own, the Ford Edge is a decent option that provides all the fundamentals potential buyers expect in this market segment. The mid-size crossover offers a roomy two-row setup, smooth, comfortable driving character, and generous tech options.

However, when placed side-by-side with the ruthless competition in its category, the Edge has a lot of problems on its hand, many of which fall back to the same factor: its price and a price hike for the 2023 release does nothing to help its case.

With this year’s release, Ford underwent upward price revisions of the Edge that moved every trim except the base SE model above a $40,000 starting price.

This new pricing scheme is problematic when considering the abundance of significantly more popular options like the Hyundai Santa Fe and Kia Sorento that retail for several thousand bucks less. It also means that the more attractive trims of the Edge, like the performance-focused ST trim, are now similarly priced to category superstars like the Mazda CX-9, Kia Telluride, Jeep Grand Cherokee, and even its more luxurious cousin from sister brand Lincoln, the Aviator.

Consequently, with the lower price advantage out of the window, there is no clear edge for this nameplate in the market, making it quite a tough sell in this market segment where buyers are spoilt for choice.

Nevertheless, the performance-oriented Ford Edge ST, which packs a 335-horsepower 2.7-liter twin-turbocharged V-6, provides a reasonably enjoyable driving experience that would hold its own against middle-of-the-park segment options. With this unit, you also get 21-inch wheels and an assortment of standard features.

The base SE is far less exciting, as it packs a 250-HP turbocharged four-cylinder with poky acceleration yet subpar fuel economy.
