We Recommend

The base SE trim would fit your pocket nicely as it offers a bunch of standard features that are more than enough. However, if you are looking to add more luxury to your 2020 Edge then the SEL trim would be a good pick as it offers numerous amenities and optional packages. The SEL has been priced reasonably.

2020 Ford Edge Engine and Performance

6.5/10
“The 2020 Ford Edge is pleasant to drive. Non-ST trims prioritize comfort over performance, and the ST ramps things up with its V6 engine. The Edge provides a composed, comfortable ride, and while there’s some body roll, the suspension absorbs most bumps and dips in the road.” – Cars.USNews

Engine specifications of the 2020 Ford Edge

The Edge SUV is powered by two engine options across the available trim levels. The first three trim levels are powered by a 2.0-liter turbocharged engine that makes out 250 hp. The engine is paired with 8-speed automatic transmission. The ST trim is the sportier version of the Edge, so, it gets a turbocharged V6 engine that propels 335 hp along with 380 pound-feet of torque.

2020 Ford Edge SUV driving view

Both the engine produces enough power to take the car get through city and highways. The Ecoboost engine is good, but at a certain time, you’ll experience little lag while accelerating on highways. The eight-speed transmission sends the engine power to all the wheels.

“The Edge doesn't flaunt the latest interior design trends, and its tech interface is far from perfect. But its generous cabin and cargo space should count for a lot among crossover shoppers.” - Edmunds
