Slotted in between the Escape and the Explorer, the 2017 Ford Edge is back again for another stint, with a multitude of feature additions this time around. A total of four new exterior shades are being introduced this year, along with a set of new 20-inch alloys, that make up for the whole exterior upgrade for 2017. The best-selling crossover is also offered with a standard 2.0L turbo-four engine, along with the additional 3.5L V6, and the 2.7L V6, being offered as optional.

Coming to the interior, Ford follows the same age-old interior design layout. Although, the 2017 Edge does get Android Auto and Apple CarPlay as standard from now on, courtesy of the latest Sync 3 infotainment interface. Starting at a base price of MSRP $28,950, the 2017 Edge also gets plenty of the latest driver-assistance features as standard.

Expert Review, Pricing Analysis and Buying Guide

Looking for a mid-sized SUV with some premium interior touches and a stylish exterior silhouette? Look no further as the 2017 Ford Edge is just the car you have been looking for. The unconventional shape and the tidy dimensions of the car make it a very attractive proposition. On the inside, the cabin is spacious and luxurious helping it invade the luxury crossover segment as well. The Edge is not really the car you would take off-roading but this one can certainly wade through the modern-day concrete jungles. With the starting price of $28,950, the 2017 Edge, despite the magnitude of feature updates it gets, it still has to prove its worth against the likes of the Hyundai Santa Fe, Jeep Grand Cherokee, and the Nissan Murano.


Features

8.5/10

The 2017 Ford Edge comes in over four different trim levels, namely SE, SEL, Sport and Titanium, with prices starting from an MSRP of $28,950 for the base SE trim, whereas the top of the line Titanium trim sets you back by $37,595. Filled up to the brim with the latest features, Ford also offers the Edge with plenty of package options, although for a premium. All of the trims come with a standard turbo-four unit, whereas on the optional front, you get a roaring V6 engine too. FWD is standard across the trim lineup, while the AWD setup is optional.

We Recommend

We would suggest you go for the Titanium trim level of the 2017 Ford Edge. That is for a premium of $7,000 more than the base trim, you get loads of premium features and equipment. On the flip-side, the Titanium trim also gets the latest new 20-inch wheels, whereas the Cold Weather Package offered with the Edge now gets a windshield wiper de-icer. For a more sporty driving experience go for the all-wheel-drive variant of the Titanium trim level.

Engine and Performance

8.6/10

The Edge has a trio of personalities, each of which matches its sleek, spare body well - The Car Connection

2017 Ford Edge Engine and Transmission

The 2017 Ford Edge has over 3 powertrain choices on offer- a base 2.0L turbocharged four-cylinder that belts out 245 hp and 275 lb-ft of torque. This is standard across the trim lineup. Two other optional engines are also offered with the 2017 Edge. A more potent 3.5L V6 engine is also offered that pushes out 280 hp and 255 lb-ft of torque. This potent unit is borrowed from the best-selling Ford Explorer, despite it being based upon the Fusion platform.

Moreover, apart from this, there is also a 2.7L twin-turbo V6 engine privy to the topmost trims in the lineup, which is good for 315 hp and 350 lb-ft of torque. Having said that, all of the said power is sent to either the front wheels or all of the wheels via a standard 6-speed torque converter automatic transmission.

Models 2017 Ford Edge 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee 2017 Nissan Murano
MSRP $28,595 $30,800 $30,395 $30,735
Engine 2.0L turbocharged Inline-4 3.3L V6 3.6L Pentastar V6 3.5L V6
Transmission 6-Speed shiftable automatic 6-Speed shiftable automatic 8-Speed Automatic CVT
Power 245 hp @ 5500 RPM 290 hp @ 6400 RPM 295 hp @ 6400 RPM 260 hp @ 6000 RPM
Torque 275 lb-ft @ 3000 RPM 252 lb-ft @ 5200 RPM 260 lb-ft @ 4800 RPM 240 hp @ 4400 RPM

This in itself is a pretty good reason, as Ford's impressive gearbox unit is known for its slick and precise shifts. The power delivery is also quite instant, and the Edge might also surprise its customers with its subtle throaty exhaust note. Zipping through freeways might seem cumbersome with the base engine, but opt for the V6, and thus overtaking maneuvers do come as relatively the easiest job. Coming to the competition, the 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee wins in terms of sheer performance for the best price.

2017 Ford Edge Acceleration

The 2017 Ford Edge with its base engine setup can sprint from 0-60 MPH in just 7.3 seconds, all the while crossing the quarter-mile mark in just about 15.7 seconds. This puts it right in the middle of the pack. opting for the V6 powertrain would definitely bring these times down to less than 7 seconds. The turbo-lag is much less, now that Ford has refined the engine further. This allows the Edge to zip through traffic much more quickly

Models 2017 Ford Edge 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee 2017 Nissan Murano
0-60 MPH 7.3 sec 7.0 secs 7.6 sec 7.3 sec
Quarter mile 15.7 sec 15.3 secs 15.8 sec 15.6 sec

The only SUV that is quicker than the Ford Edge is the Hyundai Santa Fe, which does the sprint in just 7.0 seconds. It is aided by its efficient automatic transmission, which is able to put down Santa Fe's power figures, much more effectively. Jeep Grand Cherokee, is outright the slowest SUV in this class, courtesy of its heft.

2017 Ford Edge Ride and Handling

The 2017 Ford Edge handles quite well enough across town and busy streets. It even holds its own, while busting through freeways at high speeds without any turbo-lag. But even when equipped with its AWD setup, the Edge, might not be the best offering out there to take it off-roading. It nevertheless features a dynamic driving experience even with its potent V6 engine. Its precise and responsive steering is also a boon while taking on corners. Having said that, despite being quite athletic, the 2017 Edge has only a bit of body roll, while taking on challenging corners. Moreover being a practical SUV, the suspension is set to soak up most of the bumps creeping up.

2017 Ford Edge Braking

The 2017 Ford Edge has 13.6-inch front rotor discs and 12.4-inch rear rotor discs. With this setup, the Edge is able to come to a direct stop from 60 MPH in just about 125 ft. It further offers automatic emergency braking and further braking and traction control features at additional costs.

Brake Front(in) 13.6 12.6 13.0 12.6
Brake Rear(in) 12.4 11.9 13.0 12.1
Curb weight(lbs) 3927 4026 4545 3790
60-0 MPH (ft.) 125 125 116 119

The Edge has the largest brakes in the segment, yet it comes to a dead stop quite later than the rest of the rivals. Being the heaviest of the lot, the 2017 Grand Cherokee comes to a stop the earliest.

Fuel Economy

6.9/10

The 2017 Ford Edge deliver 20 MPG in the city and 29 miles to the gallon out on the highway, with the FWD setup. Whereas the AWD setup reduces those figures by 1 MPG. Opting for the more potent 3.5L V6 engine, the Edge delivers 17 MPG in the city and 26 miles to the gallon out on the highway with the FWD setup, whereas the AWD setup backed Edge delivers 17/24 MPG in the city and highway respectively.

MPG (highway) 29 25 26 28
MPG (combined) 24 21 21 24
Fuel Tank capacity 19.5 gallons 18.8 gallons 24.6 gallons 19 gallons

Using a smaller engine and producing the lowest power figures helps the Edge to achieve the best fuel economy figures in the competition. Furthermore, it also has a start/stop system, which further improves the fuel efficiency.

Interior

7.9/10

The 2017 Ford Edge's cabin is mostly covered in soft-touch materials - Edmunds

Sharing its platform with the Ford Fusion, the 2017 Ford Edge is able to seat 5 average-sized adults inside quite easily, and that too comfortably. Relatively smaller in dimensions, the Ford Edge does manage to cough up a big cabin space for seating. It also manages to offer a handsome list of creature comforts. The leather bucket seats fitted inside in the Edge's Titanium trim get a 10-way power-adjustable function with memory.

Heating and ventilating functions are standard as well. The interior dashboard area though on the design front might lack character. Nevertheless, the overall fit and finish levels are absolutely praiseworthy, while the materials used for the interior panels are also of good quality, Quite honestly, the best seating for long hauls.

Two USB ports are also available in front, although are quite difficult to access. The best part, Ford now offers the 2017 Edge with both Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. Furthermore, for all the audiophiles out there, a 12-speaker Sony audio system is also available.

2017 Ford Edge Cargo Capacity

The 2017 Ford Edge houses a best-in-class 39.2 cu. ft of cargo capacity, behind the rear seats. As the cargo capacity is one of the primary deciding factors while buying an SUV, the 2017 Edge aces in that respect. It can fit in plenty of large suitcases for a long weekend getaway. It also features a hands-free liftgate.

Cargo capacity 39.2 cu. ft 13.5 cu. ft 36.3 cu. ft 32.1 cu. ft

Further interior storage spaces are plentiful. Coming to the competition, as the Hyundai Santa Fe is the only SUV out of the lot with 7 seats, the space behind it's rear seats is quite less compared to the rest.

Exterior

8.0/10

Ford Edge styling is conservative yet strong, starting with a large trapezoidal grille and ending with a sloped rear and wraparound lights that bring cohesion - KBB

Prioritizing on outright practicality, the 2017 Ford Edge loses out its focus when it comes to exterior design layout. The 2017 Edge is a compact SUV, that has a boxy athletic silhouette, that neither seems to thrill nor has a generic appeal to the masses. For 2017, the Ford Edge gets 4 new exterior shades, namely Canyon Ridge, Blue Jeans, White Gold, and Burgundy Velvet.

Apart from that, this year's Edge iteration also gets a brand new set of 20-inch alloy wheels. Nevertheless, Ford has focused this year to make the Edge look quite a bit intimidating and modern. The nice front grill surrounded by matt black accents, the tall boy stance, the boxy shape, and the pointy headlamps add to the overall drama of this car and necessarily give it loads of charachter.

The 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee is equipped with a 3.6L V6 engine, with slightly higher power and torque figures. The American rival excels in loads of other aspects too, including on the interior front.

Nevertheless, the Edge aces in all of the other aspects, such as the fuel efficiency front, infotainment front courtesy of the latest SYNC 3 interface, and best of all, on providing its customers with inspired driving dynamics.
