2023 Ford Edge Overview

What’s new:

  • In 2023, nothing significant will change.
  • This could be the last year that the Edge is made.
  • 2015 saw the launch of the second generation of Edge.

There are different sizes of midsize SUVs, from big three-row ones to roomy two-row ones. The 2023 Ford Edge could be an excellent choice for people who don’t need a third row but still want more space than a small SUV offers. It has a lot of room, is cozy, and is full of things to do. All models come with all-wheel drive and a giant 12-inch touchscreen as standard. Ford’s ST performance model also has a turbocharged V6 with 335 horsepower.

The Edge does have some problems. The car looks like a fastback, which cuts down on headroom in the back seats, and the giant roof pillars make it hard to see out of the vehicle. It also has to deal with tough competition, most of which looks more modern. If you want a car that can go further off-road than the Ford, look at the Jeep Grand Cherokee or the Subaru Outback. If you want a vehicle with more space inside, look at the Honda Passport or the Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport. Only a few trim features will change for 2023, and none will give the Edge an edge over its rivals.

The word “responsibility” means figuring out if a person is responsible for their actions. The Edge, however, is interesting enough to be worth thinking about. See the section below called “Expert Rating” for a detailed look at how well the Edge works, how useful it is, and how well it does other things.


  • Very soft seats
  • There is plenty of room for people and their things.
  • Engines that put performance and fuel economy first
  • A quiet cabin on the highway


  • A control layout and interior styled in a retro way.
  • Blind spots and giant roof pillars make it hard to see.
  • The transmission could be faster.
  • The sale of electronic goods is called “electronic commerce.”

What moves the Edge? We gave the Edge’s turbocharged four-cylinder engine a workout. At highway speeds, the speed might be better. Even though it takes a while to respond, the push it gives, in the end, is often good enough. In 7.5 seconds, our test car went from 0 to 60 miles per hour. Even though the Edge doesn’t make your heart race, it has good manners because the steering, handling, and braking are always lovely.

The transmission shifts smoothly but a bit too often. This tendency, along with a slow-acting gas pedal, means that the Edge has to stop and steady itself every so often. Switching to Sport mode will cut down the wait time.

How do you feel about the Edge? The Edge’s front seats are made of soft leather and have backrests that support you, but the back seats are flat and have no shape. But you can lean the back of the back seat is a nice touch. The suspension and body do a good job smoothing out medium-sized road bumps, but smaller ones and uneven pavement make the Edge feel bouncy.

We like the Edge’s quiet cabin because it blocks wind, road, and engine noise better than other cars. The climate control system works well and is subtle, but you might hear a few strange clicks when the radio is off.

How does the inside look? The Edge’s cabin is big, so the driver and passengers have plenty of room. Even though some of the smaller controls, like those for the temperature system, could be better, the main rules are easy to use.

Even though it’s harder to get to the back seats, getting in and out of the front seats is easy because the doors open wide. Even though the wide front roof pillars make it hard to see forward, most drivers can find a comfortable seat position by adjusting the seat and steering wheel.

How good is the tech? The latest version of Ford’s Sync infotainment system comes standard on the Ford Edge. The way the above sentence is written needs to be made apparent. With a clear and easy-to-use screen, this is one of the best navigation systems you can get in a car today.

A 4G Wi-Fi hotspot and Apple CarPlay/Android Auto are standard. There are also a few 12-volt outlets, two USB ports on the front, and a 110-volt home outlet that can be used to charge devices. Traditional driver aids include automatic emergency brakes, detection of blind spots, and automatic high beams.

What about putting things away? The Edge has a big cargo area because it doesn’t have a third row of seats. The space behind the second row is 39.2 cubic feet, which is a lot for the class. The 60/40 split seat backs are easy to fold but only lay partially flat.

There are three exposed car seat points and three plain top tethers on the backs of the back seats (no covers to draw back). If the people sitting in the front seats are taller than average, larger rear-facing and convertible baby seats might not fit as well.

How well does it use gasoline? The EPA says that the 2.0-liter Ford Edge with all-wheel drive gets a combined 23 mpg (21 in the city and 28 on the highway). On our test route of 115 miles, we got the same 23 mpg as the EPA.

The Edge: Does it make sense? Buyers see value differently, but the Edge is a good choice for those who value comfort and technology highly. The 2.0-liter turbo four-cylinder engine in the base Edge is more potent than most competitors’ engines and comes with a long list of standard features.

It has a warranty similar to most midsize SUVs, and it has more roadside assistance than some other cars. On the other hand, the build quality may seem better. Our Titanium AWD test car was priced like a luxury brand, but the inside didn’t look like one.

The Edge is not the most agile midsize SUV but it has precise steering. Also, it has a level of confidence in its essential driving characteristics, making it more fun to drive than the average SUV. The Edge meets and exceeds expectations for a car in this class because of its size, quiet cabin, and cutting-edge safety and entertainment technology. In the end, users will choose it because of its usefulness.

All-wheel drive is a nice feature of the base Edge, but we recommend going up to the SEL trim level. It adds things like heated seats and faux leather upholstery to the list of features that can be used.

Ford Edge Models

There are five trim levels for the 2023 Ford Edge: SE, SEL, ST-Line, Titanium, and the sporty ST. Except for the ST, all Edge models have a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine and an eight-speed automatic transmission (250 horsepower, 280 lb-ft). The ST has a more potent 2.7-liter turbocharged V6 engine and an automatic transmission with seven speeds (335 horsepower, 380 lb-ft). All models come with all-wheel drive, which moves power from both engines to all four wheels.
