Solid but not outstanding, the Edge offers little advantage over its stiff competition.
This is one of the most competitive segments in the market today. There’s the Honda Pilot, the Toyota Highlander and Nissan Murano for starters. Throw in the Hyundai Veracruz and/or Santa Fe, the Mitsubishi Endeavor, Subaru Tribeca, the Saturn Outlook…heck, virtually everyone has a mid-sized crossover with the kind of utility and features of the Edge. Few have the distinctive styling of Ford’s offering, but many offer a third row of seats which, even if it goes mostly unused, is worth its weight when needed.
