Expert Review

Overall Rating


For 2020, the Edge SUV is equipped with more luxury features and advanced safety features like automatic emergency braking and blind-spot monitoring. There's a slight update on the powertrain front as well. The carmaker has improved the 2.0-liter, four-cylinder motor that now unleashes 250 horses on flat-footing the accelerator. Apart from that, the Ford Edge is also blessed with a refreshed front and rear exterior, adding some excitement to its character.

If you are looking for a three-row SUV, you might be more interested in Kia Sorento or GMC Acadia. The Edge, on the other hand, might be one-less row, but it offers a good proposition overall for its money. Let's move ahead and find out how does the 2020 Ford Edge stack up against the competition in the segment.

2020 Ford Edge Features

8.0/10

The five-seater 2020 ford Edge is available in four trims: SE, SEL, Titanium, and ST. The SE is equipped with major standard features, but the SEL offers extra number of amenities and packages. The Titanium is also about value-added features and luxury, while the ST is the performance trim.

The SE, SEL, and Titanium trim levels are powered by a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder EcoBoost engine that produces 250 h and 280 lb-ft of torque. This engine is paired with an 8-speed automatic transmission. The ST trim gets sporty and powerful sporty twin-turbocharged 2.7-liter V6 that produces 335 hp and 380 lb-ft of torque. The engine is accompanied by an eight-speed transmission that sends power to all four wheels.

We Recommend

The base SE trim would fit your pocket nicely as it offers a bunch of standard features that are more than enough. However, if you are looking to add more luxury to your 2020 Edge then the SEL trim would be a good pick as it offers numerous amenities and optional packages. The SEL has been priced reasonably.

2020 Ford Edge Engine and Performance

6.5/10
“The 2020 Ford Edge is pleasant to drive. Non-ST trims prioritize comfort over performance, and the ST ramps things up with its V6 engine. The Edge provides a composed, comfortable ride, and while there’s some body roll, the suspension absorbs most bumps and dips in the road.” – cars.usnews

The Edge SUV is powered by two engine options across the available trim levels. The first three trim levels are powered by a 2.liter turbocharged engine that makes out 250 hp. The engine is paired to an 8-speed automatic transmission. The ST trim is the sportier version of the Edge, so, it gets a turbocharged V6 engine that propels 335 hp along with 380 pound-feet of torque.

Both the engine produces enough power to take the car get through city and highways. The Ecoboost engine is good, but at a certain time you’ll experience little lag while accelerating on highways. The eight-speed transmission sends the engine power to all the wheels.

Braking and Handling

The electric steering of the 2020 Edge is well-placed and offers good response while making turns. The car gets through the pavements with good road feedback from the front tires. The handling is completely remarkable for an SUV of this size. The brakes feel a bit touch at times, but provide strong power as we also get the emergency braking system installed throughout the trim levels. The braking distance is decent at 119 feet which are believed to be above average.

2020 Ford Edge Interior

7.7/10
“The Edge doesn't flaunt the latest interior design trends, and its tech interface is far from perfect. But its generous cabin and cargo space should count for a lot among crossover shoppers.” - Edmunds

Interior Seating and Comfort

This year, the Edge gets the same generous cabin space like always. The cabin looks clean from all corners and a handful of new features have been added for sure. A new rotary gear selector helps saving space across the center console and to make more storage areas. The 8-inch touch screen that cam optional till last year is now available as standard across all trim levels. Undoubtedly, the Edge has evolved with time. The ST trim is certainly more luxurious than the regular model.

Dimension and Weight

The Edge has restored its wide stance but has taken care of its size. It really lives up to its name. The new Edge gets a fresh front fascia uplift and houses new standard LED headlights. The Led taillamps are bigger and even the rear liftgate get revised. This year, the vehicle has been introduced with extra color options and design layouts for the alloy wheels (18-inch rims are standard now).

The ST version houses gloss black grille surrounded with matching fog lamps. The carmaker has tried their level best to provide a BMW touch to the Edge exterior styling through the front and rear-end treatment. The Edge ST looks glamorous with the red-and-black badge.

2020 Ford Edge Competition

Ford Edge vs. Honda CR-V

The Edge is larger than the CR-V, but Honda offers more efficient interior package and offers the passengers more cargo space. The Edge offers better ride quality with a responsive and powerful powertrain. You’ll appreciate Edge’s latest safety gear and extra shoulder and headroom.

Ford Edge Vs Hyundai Santa Fe

The Hyundai Santa Fe is just $600 more than the Edge as it offers seven seating capacity. Santa Fe sits on the bigger engine and offers far better-towing capacity than the Edge. You must check on the Santa Fe before making your mind for the Ford Edge.

2020 Ford Edge Final Verdict

Considering the latest refinements that the 2020 Ford Edge has received, the carmaker has planned to lure a big number of buyers this time. Forget about the marketing promotions, the Ford Edge is certainly going to grab a big slice of cake. With the ST performance trim, the Edge has placed itself beautifully across the rivals. In terms of look or ride quality, the Ford Edge is no less than most of the promising five or seven-seater SUVs in the segment.
