Ford got it right this time
from Greater NYC Area
on Sun Sep 02 2012
Purchased 2013 Ford Edge Limited AWD three months ago. This is my second new ford vehicle and from the start this Ford Edge has made me smile. It's fun to drive, each and every time. It makes heads turn each and every time. It get's me to point A and B each and every time, from 30 mile round trips to 2000 mile round trips. I spent plenty of time reading reviews, watching videos and walking the dealer lot prior to making any decision.
We opted with the limited because of all the options. From the My FordSync, Touch Screen, Blind Spot Detection, Back up Sensors, Collision Warning , "Which Actually applied the break for us when a car pulled out of me and my family and actually saved us for an accident.
Backup Camera is top notch and it actually has guide lines for easy backup parking.
Living in the Greater NYC area, easy parking is almost a must.
My favorite feature for the 2013 Edge is the adaptive cruise control. You apply cruise control like you normally would, but...you set a distance. If you approach a vehicle that is going slower then you, normally we have to break and the cruise control goes off. Now the Ford Edge actually will sense the speed of the vehicle in front of you and slow down automatically, then match the speed of the vehicle in front of you. I use this option in the most ridiculous traffic and it works every single time.
The vehicle will automatically unlock the doors when you stand next to the vehicle, so if your hands are full, have no fear because your getting in without having to dig for keys.
The wheels are 20' which I thought would be a little rougher on the road, but they are not, they look good and will turn heads.
The Panoramic Vista Sun Roof is a very cool feature, by far the biggest sun roof I have ever seen. The passengers in the back seat have a moon roof that does not open, but the fact that the back seats recline zero's out that.
The vehicle will set a mood light by your choice at night. The floors light up, cup holders, door handles, back seat floor, we have purple and it's very cool.
HID Lights are a great feature and they light up the road without issue.

First Time Owning a American Car
from Toronto, Canada
on Tue Oct 22 2013
So this is my 2nd review of this car since i bought my Edge SEL. I bought this with Panoramic Roof, GPS, 20" Rims. After one year and half and putting 29,000 Kilometres. I Can tell you so far i had zero problems during Canadian winter and summer. This truck has been amazing, my kids love it and my wife still get's amaze when she drives it. Still riding on every thing original the only maintenance i had done so far is the oil changes. Best decision i have made buying my car. If you are in the Market to purchase a new car do look at the Edge before you make your final decision.

Good all-around mid size SUV
on Fri Mar 01 2013
I can honestly tell you im in my mid 40's, have owned dozens of cars and never posted a review but here goes. I have just about 2,000 miles on my 2013 Ford Edge Sport. So far very pleased with Ford (this is my first american car in over 15yrs). The styling is not for everyone but i have a Black Sport with 22 inch wheels and really like the looks. The fit and finish is certainly above my expectations (I am coming from a 2008 Porsche Cayenne v6). The Edge is put together very well, seems very solid and the interior is almost german in its appearance. The Sport drives great - i drove the limited but preferred the slightly stiffer, better handling ride of the sport. Also the 3.7l v6 runs very smooth thou If you are worried about gas mileage your better off with the 3.5 v6 or even the 4 cyl eco-boost. I got the AWD - i spend much of my time in Vermont - i was thinking I would need to get some smaller snow tires for the winter but the 22 inch All-season Pirellis have done a good job so far. There is no doubt the Sync/MyFord Touch has a bit of a learning curve but if u read thru the manual (most people dont) and take some time to figure out how it works and what it can really do - its is a Great system. NAV with traffic is the best system ive had in a car to date. Problems ? 1 small one so far - had warning light come on tell me to check the battery - it would not go off even after a long trip so brought it to Ford - was a bad sensor - in and out in 1 day - no charge of course.. No problems since then..

2013 Ford Edge Sport
on Sat Jan 04 2014
My previous 3 vehicles were Ford ( 02 Ranger Edge 150 k miles when purchased, 08 Mercury Milan 36 k miles when purchased, 09 Ford Escape 27k miles when purchased.) All of the vehicles I've owned were fantastic vehicles as far as reliability. I still own the 02 Ranger but I've lent it to my mother. We traded the Milan in on the Escape only because I wanted an SUV and we wanted to trade it in before the miles got too high. We recently traded in the Escape on the 13 Ford Edge Sport because we found out it had been wrecked and had frame damage which we were not aware of when we purchased the vehicle. It was a great car, handled great, looked great. My only complaint was the leather seemed on the cheap side. As soon as I found out it wasn't exactly safe for me to drive, we were on the hunt. I love SUVs and had always liked the Edge. We test drove the Edge Sport and it has everything! We saw reviews that the Sync/Ford Touch system was hard to use so that was one thing we looked at first. I'm not sure of the age range reviewing or the experience level with electronics but it was not difficult to figure out. There are a lot of options that you can go through but you don't have to. So, take those reviews with a grain of salt. I'm not sure about the complaints on road noise either. My escape had terrible road noise due to the frame damage I assume. The Edge Sport is quiet. If you want Mercedes ride and lack of road noise, shell out the cash and get a Mercedes. Also, ours is new, not used and that does make a difference. I am impressed with just about everything. The back up camera is amazing, the blind spot monitors are to die for as well. It's taking some getting used to as its a bigger car than the escape but that's another thing I love. A lot of room! Not sure what the complaints are on storage. How much and what do you need to keep in your vehicle? Seems like a petty complaint. There is plenty of storage for me. If you live in your vehicle, spring for something larger. Be aware that some people are not stating whether it was new or used that they purchased and they are also not saying what model. Obviously, a base model Edge is not going to be as nice of a ride as the sport or limited. No complaints here. I'm a satisfied Ford customer yet again!

Researched and test drove almost every Crossover in its class and decided on a 2013 Ford Edge Sport. I was a spoiled Lexus GS300 owner and needed a family SUV type with luxury elements that didn't say "old dude".
Very pleased with Edge Sport BUT MPG is not 19/26 at 22 average as stated on sticker - average is about 16-17 in City which was a major downer since that was one of my key decision points. Only other model I would have selected is the limited but Sport was a bit more appealing with lots of technology upgrades.
Compared to others like Lexus, Jeep, and GMC, Ford Edge outclasses them overall - even MPG in some cases.

Ford Edge Sport 2013
from Long Beach, CA
on Mon Apr 01 2013
Prior to test driving the car, looked at several SUVs. The numerous comments about the Edge Sport riding stiff and noisy, were the major things I looked for during the test drive. The disclaimer on all of this is that my other car is a Corvette. So, with that said I found the car very comfortable. The ride was to my liking (remember it is a "Sport" model) and perhaps it was noisy but not to me. Everyone comments about the MyFord touch but after watching a youtube video by a Ford executive, I found it logical and any questions are handled in the owners manual or online. I own a flip phone (I am 61 years old and hate telephones and use the cell for emergency only) so did not get to connect the phone to the car which is not a problem. Totally enjoy the car.

2013 Ford Edge SEL
by Soccer Steve
from South Mississippi
on Fri Dec 06 2013
After 3 months and 3700 miles, the Edge has been an excellent vehicle. With 75% city and 25% highway miles, I am averaging 20.4 mpg overall while running the AC all the time. I have the 3.5L V6. I did not get the MY Ford Touch navigation after reading all of the negative reviews. So far, I have not had any mechanical or electrical problems. The storage is limited at best. The center console is the only real storage. A great feature that I have not seen mentioned, is the reclining back seat. It is great for teenagers or adults on long trips. There is plenty of rear seat leg room and the rear seats are well padded. The power drivers seat is very comfortable even on long trips. The front seats are not very wide and have limited leg width, so if you are wide in the hips, this may not be the vehicle for you.

Loving it so far!!!
by Pete Man
on Thu Jan 31 2013
I've been a Nissan Owner for over 10 years and was very happy with their product line. I switched to the Edge from a 2010 Murano that was in an accident and I didn't want to chance keeping it.
After a lot of research and debate I ended up narrowing my search down to the Traverse, Pathfinder and Edge. I ended up going with a 2013 Edge Limited with the 302A Package. This is pretty much as loaded as one can get.
Starting from the outside of the vehicle I absolutely love the look of the vehicle from pretty much every angle. The only negative I could come up with is the placement of the antenna in the front. I really wish they left it in the back. Ascetically it looks a little unbalanced with it in the front but certainly not a deal breaker for me at all.
I feel this is a very comfortable vehicle but think someone very tall and or very large might have some issues as I seem to hit my head on the visor more than any vehicle I've ever owned and that is with the seat all the way back.
The interior is very clean and the leather seems to be a pretty good quality. All of the controls are easy to access but the touch controls for the climate are very sensitive and can be accidentally activated without knowing it.
Personally I like the My Ford Touch / Sync Combination, sure it takes some time getting used to "Talking" to your vehicle but after a while it is kind of fun. Finding things within the navigation can be a little frustrating but it is still the best factory NAV that I've seen so far.
The addition features like the Included Remote Start, Blind Spot Information System and Adaptive Cruise Control are all added bonuses that once you get used to them are certainly welcome. The Crash Avoidance System will probably scare you the first few times it activates but it does serve a purpose.
Other comments are, there is a surprising lack of information available in the dash displays, I can't see my tire pressure or anything like that but in other models that information is readily available. The keyless entry doesn't work as well as I would like it to. In every other vehicle I've owned it was a two stage process to unlock all of the doors... touch the button one the drivers door unlocks, touch it again and they all do. With the edge it is only a single stage and you have to choose between drivers only and all which is a pain.
So far my average mileage is about 16 - 18mpg which is well below what they advertise it should be but I do mostly city driving but haven't been very heavy on the throttle as of yet..
All in all I think that this is a very solid vehicle that I would absolutely recommend to anyone that is considering one. Give me a few more months / thousand miles and I will voice my opinion again.

Coolest Car I've Owned
from Northern VA
on Wed Nov 14 2012
I just purchased the 2013 Limited AWD with all the bells and whistles possible a few days ago. I previously had a 2010 Edge base model. I must say that I totally love this car. It is by far the coolest car I've ever owned but it does so many things...from the proximity sensors to the sync system to the auto up and down rear door (love that). We also opted for the 20" wheels and I love the feeling of being up a little higher.
I find the car comfy and the sync system is top notch. I have only found a couple times where the command we spoke was not recognized. I had a 2007 Acura TSX once upon a time and I remember anything I said to that car it had no idea what I was saying... but the Sync seems to be working well.
I love the touch screen and all the different features and gadgets the car has. I am equally tickled at the "ambient light" setting... the car has all these lights from the dashboard, to the doors to the floor... and I'm able to change the color of these lights from purple to blue etc... its overkill and completely useless but I enjoy it all the same.
Definately recommend this car. Love the way it handles and drives as well.

An easy choice
from Huntington West Virginia
on Tue Dec 04 2012
We test drove the Sorento and then immediately after that stopped by the Ford Dealer. We had not driven very far when we realized this car was more car for the money. The V6 power and comfortable ride was evident. At that point our search was for a good deal on an Edge, we made a purchase two days later. So far we are impressed with the gas mileage. The V6 has the torque to keep the car in 6th gear and there is not the constant down shifting we notice in 4 cyl cars.
