Which Trim should you buy?

The SE trim is a too bare to the bone model even though it comes with quite some good features as standard and we would not recommend that. The titanium trim has everything and that would be our go-to model but with the options of comfort, infotainment, and AWD setup. However, if you possess a thirst for more power then it is best for you to blindly walk to the ST trim because it has all of the gizmos, a bigger engine which translates to more power.

2019 Ford Edge Engine and Performance

8.4/10

Except for the ST trim, every trim in the Ford Edge line up, the engine used is a turbocharged 2.0L 4-cylinder unit that makes 250 horsepower, it comes equipped with an automatic stop/start feature to save fuel when idling. However, the sporty ST has a turbocharged 2.7L V6 churning out 335 horsepower. 

Both the engines come paired to an 8-speed automatic transmission, and the ST trim also comes with steering-wheel-mounted paddle shifters. The smaller engine trims come with a front-wheel-drive (FWD) as the basic setup, the all-wheel-drive (AWD) is available as an option. The ST trim comes with the all-wheel-drive setup as standard.

The competition is tough for the SUV since every other SUV in this segment has almost similar power and torque figures. The Santa Fe churns out the most powerful thanks to the bigger 3.3L V6 engine. While Ford Edge’s engine might look puny in terms of displacement, it produces the highest amount of torque. In the ST trim, the Ford gets a 2.7L twin-turbo V6 which throws out 335 hp and 380 lb-ft. of torque.

How well does the 2019 Ford Edge handle?

The Ford Edge comes with independent suspension, electric power steering; this two help deliver good body control and a good road feel with a controlled ride. It feels more like Ford’s Fusion sedan in how it steers into corners and travels easily down the highway. The Titanium trim comes with bigger wheels, but they don’t compromise the Edge’s steering and handling prowess at moderate speeds.

There was an adaptive-steering system offered on the Edge in prior years, but it has been removed as the benefits were minimal. The ST shows more ride manners. It comes with its 20-inch wheels and 21-inches and summer tires on some editions. It comes with a stiffer suspension tune and heavier steering when the Sport button is pressed. It’s very firm but manages to keep the cabin traveling smooth and absorbs all the undulation well.

2019 Ford Edge Braking Performance

The Edge's brakes seem a little choppy in the beginning, but they do possess strong and reassuring stopping power. On the first press of the pedal, the initial action is soft, but the braking force can be modulated easily. Unlike other vehicles, the Edge manages to avoid a vague braking routine. Shedding speed from 60-0 mph is done in a distance of 119 feet, which is a good result for a midsize SUV.

The Ford Edge gets the biggest brake in terms of size in this comparison and even though it is the heaviest car here the car manages to stop from 60 mph to just under 119 feet. The Santa Fe is the better car and comes to stop in just 116 feet from 60 mph. The Honda Passport on the other hand took the maximum distance of 126 feet to halt making it a poor car in terms of braking but it is the fastest to 60 mph.

2019 Ford Edge Fuel Economy

7.0/10

Equipped with a four-cylinder engine returns an above-average fuel economy ratings for the class. The four-cylinder turbocharged engine in front-wheel-drive configuration returns an estimated 22 mpg in the city, 29 mpg on the highway, and 25 mpg combined mileage. In the all-wheel-drive setup, these figures drop to 21 mpg in the city, 28 mpg on the highway, and 23 mpg combined. Mileage comes down by a few more mpg in models with the V6 ST trim and returns an estimated 19 mpg in the city, 26 mpg on the highway, and 21 mpg combined.

The Ford Edge returns the best mileage figures thanks to the smaller displacement turbocharged engine. It has the smallest tank and yet returns the most range even more than the competitors with bigger fuel tanks. Both Nissan and Honda have similar mileage figures and the Hyundai lags behind with the lowest numbers.

2019 Ford Edge Interior

7.9/10

The Ford Edge is a very quiet vehicle with great comfort in the front, the back seats are flat. The ride comfort is good and the suspension deals with many moderate bumps very well. Smaller roads and uneven textures tend to seep into the cabin in the form of a slightly busy ride. The seats feel cozy and the credits go to comfortable seat cushions and soft leather. The flat, rear seat is optimized for folding and not comfort. A reclining rear seatback is a great feature.

2019 Ford Edge Exterior

8.0/10

The 2019 model of the Edge has been given a fresh look and that livens up things, it now houses new LED headlights as standard. The LED taillights are also larger, while the liftgate has also been revised. The ST has a gloss black grille and matching fog-light surrounds, black bezels in the headlights, and dual-exhaust outlets. 

The Edge’s basic wide stance remains, however, so care needs to be taken but this provides extra stability to the chassis and plenty of shoulder room for occupants. The Ford Edge is still practical with these measurements, The length of the SUV is 188.8“ with a width of 75..9” and a height of 68.3”. The wheelbase measures 112.2”, while curb weight is a massive 4,216 lbs.

2019 Ford Edge Competition

7.6/10

2019 Ford Edge vs 2019 Nissan Murano

The Ford Edge is one of the best handlings and performing SUVs today. The Edge has higher cargo capacity and a better infotainment system. The Nissan Murano on the other hand offers a plush and quiet ride and has fit and finish levels that seem premium. But, if sportiness is what you desire, the Ford Edge is the better choice however if you are going for a comfortable and premium mile muncher, the Murano is the one.

2019 Ford Edge vs Hyundai Santa Fe

The starting price of the 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe is slightly more than the Edge's and justifies it by offering a few more toys and seven seats for a similar outlay. The Santa Fe also comes with a bigger engine and a better towing capacity than the Ford Edge. Therefore, the Santa Fe is a good rival that might be worth a look.

2019 Ford Edge Vs 2019 Honda Passport

The Honda and the Ford are very close to each other and only a personal test drive can help you decide. Both are capable SUVs with comfortable rides, though the Ford gets better mileage. However, the Edge has a slightly smaller cabin with two rows of seats and less total cargo space than the Passport. The larger Passport even with two rows of seats is spacious and has a higher cargo capacity than the Edge.

2019 Ford Edge Final Verdict

The 2019 Ford Edge offers great ride quality with great interiors. It is really great in terms of performance and mileage as well. However, the Santa Fe is the only car that can be a considerable rival and worth a look at. The new Ford Edge minces the other two cars and lunges ahead. This car if bought will be a good bargain and thanks to the widespread network of the maker the services are widely available.
