2020 Ford Edge Review

from the Cars.com expert editorial team

What Is the 2020 Ford Edge?

The 2020 Ford Edge is a mid-size SUV that can seat up to five. It has a standard 250-horsepower, turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine or an available 335-hp, twin-turbo 2.7-liter V-6 that goes in the performance-oriented ST trim level. Both engines work with an eight-speed automatic transmission, and front- and all-wheel-drive models are offered. Competitors include the Chevrolet Blazer, Honda Passport and Hyundai Santa Fe.

What’s New on the 2020 Ford Edge?

Dual-zone automatic air conditioning is now standard, and a new Titanium Appearance Package is available. The package includes 20-inch polished-aluminum wheels, chrome accents, red interior accent stitching and aluminum trim on the instrument panel.

What Features in the 2020 Ford Edge Are Most Important?

The Edge comes standard with important active safety features such as automatic high-beam headlights, blind spot warning with rear cross-traffic alert, lane keep assist, forward collision warning with pedestrian detection, and automatic emergency braking. Standard convenience features include a 4G LTE Wi-Fi hot spot for up to 10 devices (data subscription required after initial trial) and an 8-inch touchscreen multimedia system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone connectivity.

2020 Ford Edge Vs. 2020 Hyundai Santa Fe: How Do They Compare?

With its nimble handling and excellent steering feel, the Edge is more rewarding to drive than the Santa Fe. Neither SUVs’ base drivetrains are particularly powerful, but the Santa Fe’s is slightly more efficient according to EPA estimates. Cargo room is also similar, but the Hyundai’s starting price is considerably lower than the Ford’s.

Should I Buy the 2020 Ford Edge?

The Edge drives well and offers good ride comfort. Its many standard active safety features are welcome, and its multimedia system is easy to use. The base engine that goes in most trims delivers modest power, but the high-output V-6 in the ST model is considerably more powerful. In our recent mid-size SUV comparison test, the Edge finished third in a field of six.

Warranty FAQs

What is a Bumper-to-Bumper warranty?

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

What is a Powertrain warranty?

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

What is included in Roadside Assistance?

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

What other services could be included in a warranty?

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.

What does CPO mean?

A certified pre-owned or CPO car has been inspected to meet minimum quality standards and typically includes some type of warranty. While dealers and third parties certify cars, the gold standard is an automaker-certified vehicle that provides a factory-backed warranty, often extending the original coverage. Vehicles must be in excellent condition and have low miles and wear to be certified, which is why off-lease vehicles feed many CPO programs.
