The Ford Edge is like the Goldilocks of the Ford SUV lineup, just in-between the Escape and the Explorer. 

For years and years, Ford was banking on their truck-based SUVs. It wasn’t until the Edge entered the market that Ford finally had a proper crossover to battle with.

The Foundation of the Ford Edge

The Ford Edge first hit the market back in 2006 when it debuted at the 2006 Detroit Auto Show. A year later in 2007, the crossover went into production. 

The OG Crossover – Technology and Performance of the Ford Edge

The 2019 Ford Edge has a base turbocharged four-cylinder engine that provides the crossover with 250 horsepower. Upgrade to the higher trim and you can get a twin-turbocharged 2.7L V-7 engine that puts out 335 horsepower with its standard all-wheel-drive. 

The inside is very spacious yet understated. It comes with a standard Wi-Fi hotspot for smartphone addicts as well. The Edge utilizes Ford’s Sync 3 Infotainment System, and at the top trim, provides drivers with an 8.0” touchscreen. The infotainment system works with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. There are a few driver-assistance features as well, including automated emergency braking, blind-spot monitoring, and lane-keeping assist.

A Short Timeline of the Ford Edge

  • First Generation Ford Edge (2007-2014)

The first-generation Ford Edge utilized a 3.5L V-6 Duratec engine that puts out 265 horsepower. Some of the standard features included remote keyless entry, cruise control, and traction control.

  • Second Generation Ford Edge (2014-Present)

The second-generation Ford Edge was presented with an upgraded engine lineup. There was also a new front grille, as well as newly designed headlights and rear lights. The Sport version of the vehicle was upgraded with a V-6 petrol unit. By 2018, the new 2.0L EcoBlue Ford engine was added on and paired with eight-speed automatic transmission.

The Ford Edge In the News

In recent Ford news, Ford announced that they would be recalling just over half-a-million vehicles in the United States for various reasons. The 2015-2016 Ford Edge is one of the vehicles being recalled, as it has had issues with loss of power steering during cold weather.

Celebrity Endorsements of the Ford Edge

Though it may not seem like a celebrity vehicle, there are a few celebrities that can be seen cruising around in their Edges. Anna Faris has been seen filling up her Ford Edge at the gas station and Kristen Stewart was recently seen hopping out of her Ford Edge.
