2018 Ford Edge Price, Review, Ratings and Pictures

Updated on: December 28, 2021

Finding a family-friendly SUV that's also fun to drive and own can be difficult, but the 2018 Ford Edge might fit the bill. The Edge provides sufficient cargo and passenger room, even if it lacks the third row of a larger SUV. It's also still pretty easy to park, and it gets better gas mileage than the heavier cars.

A base fuel-efficient turbocharged EcoBoost four-cylinder engine, a smooth V6 offered on the SEL and Titanium, and a muscular twin-turbo V6 featured in the Edge Sport are the powertrains available. All trims have the same six-speed automatic transmission, with the exception of the Sport, which has it as standard. The new Safe and Smart package is currently available on SEL, Titanium, and Sport trims. Blue Metallic and Lightning Blue are two new colors that have been added to the palette.

Expert Review, Pricing Analysis and Buying Guide

"If you’re shopping for a roomy, versatile crossover SUV that is more Sport than Utility, the 2018 Ford Edge should hold strong appeal." - Kelley Blue Book

The 2018 Ford Edge crossover SUV has a car-like ride and handling, as well as the capacity to handle deep snow and light off-road tracks. The 2018 Edge features a 2-row, 5-passenger layout with plenty of room for both people and cargo. The 2018 Ford Edge comes with three engine choices: a standard fuel-efficient turbocharged four-cylinder, a smooth V6 optional on the SEL and Titanium, and a powerful twin-turbo V6 found on the Sport trim.

There are four trim levels to choose from for the 2018 Ford Edge: SE, SEL, Titanium, and Sport, with prices ranging from $29,220 to $40,675.Except for minor cosmetic changes, there are no discernible differences between the 2018 Edge and the prior model. The 2018 Edge comes with a plethora of options. This year, a new SEL Sport Package is available, which includes blacked-out headlight bezels and Magnetic Metallic paint on the grille, mirror caps, 10-spoke 19-inch wheels, and rear spoiler.


When it comes to choosing the new Ford Edge 2018, there are plenty of possibilities. SE, SEL, Titanium, and Sport are the four trim levels, with prices ranging from $29,220 to $40,675. The SE, SEL, and Titanium variants all come standard with a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine.

The 2018 Ford Edge is available in SE, SEL, Titanium, and Sport trims

On the SEL and Titanium trims, a 3.5-liter V6 engine (280 horsepower, 250 lb-ft) is offered as an option. Both engines come with a six-speed transmission and front-wheel drive as standard. All-wheel drive is available as an option. Unlike the rest of the Edge lineup, the sports trim has only one powertrain configuration: a turbocharged 2.7-liter V-6 engine with standard all-wheel drive.

    Dual-Zone Electronic Automatic Temperature Control (DEATC). Hand-free foot-activated liftgate. Leather-Trimmed Seats with Miko Cloth Inserts.

The Edge can be equipped with a variety of convenience and luxury elements on the inside. Adaptive steering and cruise control, blind-spot monitoring, forward collision warning, and active park assist are among the available driver-assist functions on the optional Sync 3 infotainment system, which seamlessly combines your smartphone's navigation and communication capabilities to your car.

We Recommend

If you only need a basic crossover and don't want to spend a lot of money, the SE trim is a great option. However, we believe the SEL is the way to go if you want something a bit more. While keeping the price reasonable, it provides greater amenities and access to options packages. If you want the coveted Sync 3 infotainment system, order it with the Equipment Group 201A package. The V-6 engine also outperforms the turbocharged 4-cylinder engine, which might feel underpowered at times.

Engine and Performance

"The 2018 Ford Edge is pleasant to drive, with handling characteristics more similar to those of a large car than a hulking SUV. Power plant options range from a polite base engine with good fuel economy to the vivacious twin-turbocharged Sport."  U.S. News

2018 Ford Edge Engine and Transmission

Front-wheel drive is standard on the Edge, although all-wheel drive is an option. Its standard 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine produces 245 horsepower and is powerful enough. For most people, the 280-hp 3.5-liter V-6 provides plenty of power. 

2018 Ford Edge SUV Engine Bay

The 2.7-liter twin-turbocharged EcoBoost V6 transforms the 2018 Ford Edge Sport into a performance bombshell, with a stiffer suspension for better cornering and standard all-wheel drive for enhanced grip and decreased torque steer.

The responsiveness when approaching a turn is surprisingly good, yet road feedback from the front tires is almost non-existent.

2018 Ford Edge Dimension and Weight

Starting with a big trapezoidal grille and ending with a sloped back and wraparound lighting that brings cohesiveness, the Ford Edge style is modest yet forceful. The piano-black grille treatment, distinctive headlamps, body-color front, and rear fascias, and body-color lower cladding set Sport versions different.

The silhouette of the 2018 Ford Edge crossover SUV is wide and squat. This leads to a spacious cabin, but Ford's large dimensions should be considered when parking in a one-car garage. The wheel diameters range from 18-inch alloys on SE and SEL models to 19-inch alloys on Titanium versions to 20-inch alloys on Sport vehicles. The Sport level also comes with a 21-inch wheel option.

2018 Ford Edge Vs 2018 Kia Sorento

In addition to outperforming the Edge in crash tests, the Kia boasts a starting sticker price that is thousands of dollars lower. So, if you're searching for a car with a high safety rating and five seats, the Sorento is a terrific value for money option.

2018 Ford Edge Vs 2018 Hyundai Santa Fe

2018 Hyundai Santa Fe
Final Verdict
