Solid but not outstanding, the Edge offers little advantage over its stiff competition.
The Edge is a bright spot at Ford, probably due in part to its styling, which has grown on some of us. The bulldog stance at least gives the impression of being low and aggressive – which the Edge isn’t – and we like the stubby nose and tail. Even the grille has grown on us, although we sometimes still think “Gillette.” An improvement would be a slightly smaller and flusher Ford oval. The standard-issue Ford switchgear in the Edge is functional, effective and looks good here. The interior appearance would be improved with more single-piece panels, but overall it’s a little bland and not very edgy.
