The 2014 Ford Edge is pretty much the same as its predecessor. It features an excellent ride quality that is accompanied by a powerful V6 engine right from the base model. The 2014 Ford Edge again has excellent interior space, but its infotainment system lacks most of the features as standard.

Ford Edge is one of the top SUVs in its class in terms of performance, but its fuel economy is relatively low compared to rivals. In addition, the 2014 Edge also struggled to achieve great results in NHTSA tests. With a starting price tag of $28,100, it competes with the likes of Nissan Murano, GMC Terrain, and Chevrolet Equinox.

The SEL trim would be the wisest choice here based on the price and features it offers. This trim comes with some new infotainment features, and it costs only $3k more than the base trim. It also comes with some additional comfort features such as dual-zone automatic climate control, Sirius XM, automatic headlamps, 18.0-inch wheels, etc.

2014 Ford Edge Engine and Performance

6.0/10

There is no difference in the powertrain between this year's Ford Edge and the 2013 version. Each trim except the Sport comes with a 3.5L V6 engine capable of producing around 285 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque. On the other hand, the Sport trim comes with a 3.7L V6 engine that generates 305hp and 280lb-ft of torque. All trims have the same transmission system- the SelectShift 6-speed automatic. Like all Ford vehicles, the Edge is very enjoyable to drive, thanks to its precise steering response. Additionally, you will love how smooth this SUV is around sharp turns and when traveling on bumpy roads.

Ford Edge is the only SUV in its class with a standard V6 engine along with Nissan Murano, which has a very good amount of power. Edge's other rivals, such as Terrain & Equinox, come equipped with a standard Inline-4 engine that cannot match Edge's speed and acceleration. The 2014 Edge outperforms all its competition in terms of outright acceleration, covering the 0-60mph run in 6.8 seconds. The Nissan Murano tends to beat the Ford by 1.5 seconds in the quarter-mile race. 

2014 Ford Edge Fuel Economy

6.0/10

Ford Edge is one of the most powerful SUVs in its segment, but its fuel economy is one of the lowest in its class. It can achieve 19 mpg in the city and 27 mpg on the highway. The combined range of this SUV is 22 mpg, which is significantly better than its V6 rival Nissan Murano. Its fuel tank can hold only 18.3 gallons of fuel at a time, which is less than most of its competitors. Hence, if fuel efficiency is your top concern, then you may not like the Ford.

When it comes to fuel economy, the GMC Terrain, when equipped with its 2.4L inline-4 engine, can deliver up to 22 mpg in the city and 36 mpg on the highway. But when equipped with the optional 3.6L V6, the fuel economy drops by a huge margin. However, the large fuel tank does help with the overall driving range. Nissan Murano is the clear winner here with excellent fuel economy and driving range.

2014 Ford Edge Interior

8.0/10

There is no doubt that the interior of the 2014 Edge is a very comfortable place to be in. The cabin is equipped with several comfort features as standard, but the base model does not have as many as the upper trim levels. As standard, the seats are upholstered in cloth, but on the Limited and above trim, leather upholstery is included as standard. In terms of cabin dimensions, both front and rear seating is fairly spacious, but again, it is not the most spacious in the class. 

The front dashboard looks very clean and simple, and the design is very plain. Its seats are extremely comfortable, and its reclining seatback cushions at the rear seats provide comfort for those seated there. The cabin is also very well isolated from the outside environment, and there is very good visibility from the cabin. The cargo volume of the Edge is 32.2 cubic feet, which is a decent size, and most of its competitors provide similar numbers.

The Nissan Murano provides the most legroom in the front but falls short when it comes to headroom. Ford Edge and Chevy Equinox, which share almost the same dimensions, offer ample rear space. The Ford Edge also manages to provide a slightly better cargo area than the competition. All the cars in the competition come with a standard capacity of 5 only. Standout interior features include:

  • Dual-zone automatic climate control
  • Heated front seats (Top trims)
  • Universal garage door opener
  • Leather Steering Wheel
  • Ambient lighting

How intuitive is the 2014 Ford Edge’s infotainment unit?

Standard on the base models of the Ford Edge is a 4.2-inch screen, while the top-level models have an 8.0-inch screen. In other words, if you prefer a big screen on your console, you should probably consider the top trims. The 2014 Edge's infotainment screen is relatively unimpressive in terms of quality and responsiveness, which is somewhat disappointing.

Other features of this car include USB Connection, Satellite Radio, AM/FM radio, Auxiliary Audio Input, and 6 speaker stereo. However, the most exciting features come with an optional package, which includes SiriusXM Traffic and Travel Link, a power liftgate, a Remote Start System, and Navigation. Standout infotainment features include:

  • 6-speaker stereo
  • Satellite radio
  • AM/FM radio
  • USB ports
  • SiriusXM Traffic and Travel Link (Package)

2014 Ford Edge Exterior

6.0/10

The Ford Edge has a bulky exterior appearance, and the design and structure of the vehicle are widely disputed. The front grille is massive but may not be appealing to most buyers. The vehicle is very wide, and many owners complain about difficulty parking in tight spots. Speaking of some of its features, it includes 17.0-inch alloy wheels as standard on the base model, while the upper trims have larger wheels. Some of the features such as power liftgate, HID headlights, and the panoramic roof are only available as part of Ford's packages.

Compared to its peers, the 2014 Edge is the heaviest SUV of the lot. Again, the Edge has the largest width in its class. On the flip side, the wheelbase is much shorter than that of the GMC Terrain & Chevy Equinox. On the other hand, the Edge has much higher ground clearance than any other SUV, which is an advantage while going off-road. Standout exterior features include:

  • 17.0-inch wheels
  • Power liftgate (Optional)
  • Turn signals on the side mirrors (Optional)
  • Automatic Headlamps

2014 Ford Edge Safety

9.0/10

In the crash test, the 2014 Ford Edge didn't perform as well as expected, but it still has favorable ratings, so overall it is considered a safe SUV. The NHTSA gave it a four-star rating out of five, which is above average. The IIHS gave it an overall Good rating without a Top Safety award. As standard, it has a good amount of safety features, however, advanced safety technologies such as the Blind Spot System, Cross-Traffic Alert System, and Adaptive Cruise Control can only be purchased through packages. Standout safety features include:

  • Post-Collision Safety System
  • Low Tire Pressure Warning
  • Cross-Traffic Alert (Optional)
  • Blindspot information system (Optional)
  • Electronic Brakeforce Distribution
  • Emergency Braking Assist

2014 Ford Edge Final Verdict

There is no doubt that the 2014 Ford Edge is one of the best SUVs in its class, thanks to its excellent powertrain that is a distinguishing factor over its rivals. Furthermore, it offers many advantages in the interior and exterior sections over its competitor Nissan Murano. However, there are disadvantages such as poor fuel mileage, basic features on the base models, and safety features that are not all that impressive. Even so, if you consider its price, the 2014 Edge is still a great buy in its segment.
