The 2013 Ford Edge underwent minor changes like the base trim is now available in AWD option as well which was previously available only in FWD. It still retains its powerful V6 engine which produces superior power figures and delivers better fuel economy than the rivals. It also handles really well for a brawny SUV. Its finely built suspension offers an amazing ride quality.

Overall Rating


The front where it underperforms is the transmission that is not capable enough to send all the horses to the wheels. The 2013 Ford Edge has plenty of standard features inside the cabin and with the top safety ratings, it also ensures the total safety of the occupants. The Ford Edge is available in a choice of 4 trim levels and it rivals the likes of Nissan Murano, Chevrolet Equinox, and Kia Sorento.

We Recommend

We recommend you to go for its ‘Limited’ trim option with its FWD configuration, as it offers all the premium and luxurious features like heated seats with power adjustments, leather upholstery, advanced infotainment unit, Sony 12-speaker audio system, 18-inch alloys, heated side-view mirrors, and many more, which definitely satisfies you with this car at this price point. However, the Sport trim suits well for someone who really wants a punchy performance along with a sporty feel inside.

2013 Ford Edge Engine and Performance

7.0/10

The 2013 Ford Edge comes with a powerful 3.5-liter naturally aspirated V6 motor as standard, which produces 285 horsepower and 253 lb-ft. of torque. The Sport trim is powered by a more powerful 3.7-liter V6 motor that generates 305 horsepower and 280 lb-ft. of torque. Both the engines are mated with a 6-speed automatic transmission, which is quite sluggish to shift on time. Optional on all but the Edge Sport is a 2.0-liter EcoBoost inline-4 that produces 240 hp and 270 lb-ft of torque. FWD drivetrain is the only configuration available with this engine.

All the trim levels are now offered in front-wheel drive as well as all-wheel-drive variants, including the base trim SE. The performance of the engine is quite decent in the segment. The car takes 7 seconds to touch the 60 mph mark, and the quarter-mile completion time was recorded as 13.5 seconds. In the Sport trim, you can definitely expect even better performance from it.

Except for the Equinox in its base avatar, all have almost equally powerful engines. The Ford Edge and Murano are quite good performers, while the Sorento is pretty slow despite its equally powerful engine. The Nissan Murano is the only one to come with a CVT transmission as standard yet capable of delivering some impressive power to weight ratio. It’s such a well-made powertrain. 

2013 Ford Edge Fuel Economy

9.0/10

The efficiency of the Edge is not something a highlighted feature, but it delivers an adequate fuel economy. With its base engine, it delivers an economy of 19 mpg in the city and 27 on the highways, and the combined figures result as 22 mpg. It has a smaller fuel tank that can hold up to 18.3 gallons of fuel and can easily cover over 340 miles in the city and over 490 miles on the highways. With its more powerful 3.7L motor, you can expect a drop in mpg figures by 1 or 2mpg.

The Sorento has a class-leading mpg figure but has the smallest tank in the segment which limits its driving range. The Equinox also has an adequate fuel economy and delivers one of the superior driving ranges in the segment. The Ford Edge and the Nissan Murano have decent mpg figures, but the smaller tank of Edge limits its combined range to 400 miles.

2013 Ford Edge Interior

8.0/10

The 2013 Ford Edge provides a decent-looking cabin and comfortable seating with ample room for 5. The dashboard is designed with a simplistic design approach where it features wooden accents that make it look premium. The top is covered in soft-touch material which gives a rugged and premium feel. The center area is outlined with an aluminum finish and is kept very simplistic. The steering is wrapped in black leather with all the controls for infotainment and cruise control at your fingertips.

The seats are comfortable enough for 5 and are wrapped in leather. However, the lower trim gets fabric upholstery. You have plenty of room both at the front and the rear. The front seats feature power adjustments along with the heating function. Coming to the cargo capacity, behind the second row, you’ll get a massive storage capacity of 32.2 cu-ft. which can be increased to 68.9 cu-ft. by folding down the second row.

2013 Ford Edge Exterior

8.0/10

From the outside, the 2013 Edge showcases a bulky boxy structure, which looks very bold especially from the front. The heavy usage of chrome at the front grille truly catches one's attention. The headlamps perfectly merge with the grille and feature projector setup. Without many cuts and creases, the whole design of the car is kept simple yet it looks muscular and bold. The side and the rear profile don’t have much to talk about.  

The windows are tinted in the deep dark which are highlighted with a chrome liner around them. It also got body-colored door handles, side-view mirrors, and body cladding at the bottom. The vehicle has 18-inch aluminum alloys as standard, while the top-end trim gets 22-inch polished aluminum wheels with Tuxedo black spoke accents.

The Kia Sorento on the other hand has a well-balanced body weight and delivers superior handling as well. The Edge is not a very lengthy car, still, it has good cabin room as well as boot space.
