2007 Ford Edge Review

By

By masterfully combining the best attributes of a responsive but comfortable sedan with those of a versatile and roomy SUV, the Ford Edge fulfills the promise of the Crossover Utility Vehicle like no other example to date. It also demonstrates impeccable timing, arriving in the same year that car-based CUV sales overtake truck-based SUV sales for the first time. The Ford Edge might not have the capacity to impact the market in the same way as the automaker's Taurus sedan of 1986 or the Explorer SUV of 1991, but the fact that it's good enough to get mentioned in the same sentence as those milestones says quite a bit.

You'll Like This Car If...

Softer than some, stiffer than others, the Edge hits the mass-appeal sweet spot in ride and handling. Coupled with a refined, eager powertrain and notably quiet highway cruising, the roomy, comfortable, versatile Edge is an extraordinarily well-rounded way to move throughout the world.

You May Not Like This Car If...

The Ford Edge doesn't corner as aggressively as its sporty appearance may suggest. Its innovative design (and $37,000 price ceiling) might also have you expecting the availability of features like keyless entry and start and Bluetooth hands-free phone connectivity. For the small percentage of drivers that would utilize it, the Edge's lack of manumatic shift capability could be a disappointment.

What's New for 2007

The all-new Edge crossover is stylish on the outside, comfortable on the inside and smooth, quiet and responsive on the road. Most importantly, the entire package is wrapped in an overall sense of quality and refinement that's sure to sway plenty of import-brand devotees.

Driving the Edge

Driving Impressions In the city and on the highway, the Ford Edge met or exceeded nearly all of our high expectations. More significant than how quickly the Edge was able to merge...

and pass was how pleasantly it did so, with none of the racket and drama we might have expected from such a vehicle only a couple years ago. At cruising speeds, we were impressed by an appreciably quiet cabin and a notably comfortable ride. Only when the road began to wind and curve, and we began to push it harder, did the Edge reveal any noteworthy limitations, although we nonetheless consider the suspension, steering and brakes ideally balanced for the vehicle's purpose in life.

Available Remote Seatback Release
For loading larger items, the split rear seatback folds flat at the push of two cargo area-mounted buttons.

Available Panoramic Sunroof
Open or closed, the Edge's massive glass sunroof really livens up the passenger cabin. There's even a second, fixed glass panel over the second row.

The Edge's more familiar interior styling doesn't quite live up to the expectations set by its cutting-edge sheetmetal, but it's nonetheless attractive, comfortable and spacious. Highlights include an especially roomy back seat with reclining seatbacks and a center console big enough to swallow a laptop or purse. Available niceties include a big panoramic sunroof, remote seat release buttons that let you fold the rear seatbacks flat from the cargo area and a fold-flat front passenger seat that allows for the transport of items up to eight feet in length.

Exterior

By resisting the urge to add even a small, "just in case" third row seat, Ford's designers were able to give the Edge the sleeker, sportier profile that helps set it apart from the crowd. The view from the side is marked by a large but subtle rear spoiler, short front and rear overhangs and well-defined wheel arches framing 17-inch aluminum wheels. The front of the vehicle is dominated by a version of the three-bar chrome grille that debuted on the Ford Fusion sedan, while the back is defined by dual exhaust outlets, a big, unapologetic Ford oval and clear-lens taillamps. Edge SEL models are distinguished by 18-inch wheels, front fog lights, chrome exhaust tips plus body-color mirrors, door handles and spoiler.

Notable Equipment
Standard Equipment

In addition to the 3.5-liter V6 and six-speed automatic transmission, a base Edge SE includes power windows/locks/mirrors, remote keyless entry, single-disc CD/CD-MP3 sound system, auxiliary audio input jack, reclining rear seatbacks and 17-inch aluminum wheels, A comprehensive set of standard safety equipment includes front, front-side and two-row side-curtain airbags, plus electronic stability control with rollover mitigation.

Optional Equipment

Features not included on a base Edge include the two-panel panoramic sunroof, trunk-mounted remote seat release, DVD-based navigation system, DVD rear-seat entertainment system, reverse sensing system, premium six-disc audio system, leather seating, power and heated front seats and fold-flat passenger seat.

Under the Hood

In addition to Ford's newest V6, the Edge's powertrain features a new six-speed automatic transmission that's the product of a joint development program between Ford and GM. The available all-wheel-drive system functions in front-wheel-drive mode until a need for additional traction is detected. In true crossover fashion, the Edge is built upon the same platform as Ford's Fusion sedan. Maximum towing capacity is 3,500 pounds.

3.5-liter V6
265 horsepower @ 6250 rpm
250 lb.-ft. of torque @ 4500 rpm
EPA city/highway fuel economy: 18/25 (FWD), 17/24 (AWD)

"I love this vehicle! I've owned several vehicles over my lifetime, but I can truly say this vehicle is one of a kind. I've never owned a vehicle this long either! It is the complete package and is extremely comfortable for someone who has back problems. I never want to give it up, if I do, it will be for a newer model."

"The safety rating of this vehicle has held up to standards. Involved in two serious accidents involving deer and the Edge continues to amaze me in the ease of repairs and protection for myself and family. Will continue to be a Ford Edge fan! I've recommended the Edge to my neighbor and mother and both are now Edge owners and fans."

"The edge is comfortable with good highway and town response the mpg is lacking in interstate travel. 21.5 is about the best I have done going downhill into Phoenix. Fuel does not matter in mpg, 87 Octane versus 93 has no difference. The awd is useful but this could be deterrent in getting a better mpg."

Pros: "The Panoramic Roof!!!"

Cons: "back seat is tight across for 3 adults"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10

"It is comfortable, it drives and rides well, and I can fit most things I need it to. The Sync system is fairly user friendly. The backseat has plenty of leg room and the cargo area is large. I was a little disappointed that the back doors do not open to a full 90 degrees like my CRV before it. That's my own preference because, at the time I bought it, I had little kids in carseats to get in and out. An adult has no problem. My favorite thing to do is set the bluetooth on the Sync system with my playlist and go on road trips with the roof open. Ahhh! I went thru 2-3 vehicles before this one, which is what I wanted from the get-go. Each lasted less than a year. I have had this car almost 5 years and I do not regret a day of owning it."

"I owned Ford Explorers for many years. While completely satisfied with that model, I wanted to try something different and bought the Edge. I was not disappointed at all. It has the same weight and feel of an Explorer and a very comfortable ride. The styling is very attractive."

"I BOUGHT THE 2014 VERSION OF THE FORD EDGE BECAUSE MY 2008 FORD EDGE HAD ALOT OF MILES BUT I TRULY LOVED IT. I NEVER HAD AN ISSUE WITH ANYTHING ABOUT IT AND IT WAS PRETTY. HOWEVER NOW I AM SO NOT HAPPY! I AM FINDING THAT THE THE ENTRANCE INTO THE CAR IS SO CLOSE IT IS DIFFICULT TO GET IN WITHOUT HITTING YOUR HEAD,THE STORAGE HAS BEEN COMPLETELY CHANGED AND PUT IN RIDICULOUS PLACES, THE CONSOLE STORAGE HAS A TRAY THAT DROPS INTO THE CONSOLE SO FAR THAT IT IS REALLY UN-USABLE, THE DOOR HANDLES HAVE BEEN MOVED FORWARD AND ANGLED SO THAT THEY ARE IMPOSSIBLE TO USE IF YOU ARE ON A SLIGHTLY TILTED AREA SUCH AS A CIRCULAR PARKING GARAGE. ONE HAS TO GRAB THE DOOR FRAME TO KEEP THE DOOR FROM HITTING THE CAR NEXT TO YOU. IT IS THE INTERIOR CHANGES THAT HAVE MADE THIS CAR ONE I WOULD NOT BUY AGAIN. THEY SHOULD HAVE LEFT IT ALONE"
