Very reliable, safe, roomy and plenty of pep.

My previous vehicle was a 2011 Ford Edge SEL that I had bought new in 2010. I drove it 102,000 miles. No issues with it. It was totaled when I was hit from rear by a Camry going 60. I had no injuries except for a cut finger. Thankyou FORD! That's why I replaced it with a 2021 Ford Edge SEL!


I love this vehicle.

Had planned on buying the Ford Escape but after test driving the Edge ST Line I was hooked. It has the sport pedals and those are still taking some getting used to (not the brake but the gas pedal.) The counsel storage is at a disadvantage to me as I have to be so far forward in the seat that it sits smack dab at the back of my elbow, so a little annoyance there. So many gadgets and icons to learn. One of the best features is the 12 inch monitor. Amazing.


Happily surprised

I wanted a practical and reasonably inexpensive SUV to use at our summer house in Michigan, so spent a lot of time poring over Consumer zReports and the car mag sites. The Ford Edge SEL AWD looked like a safe choice but I was curious as to how it would stack up against our other two SUVs, a Lexus and a Mercedes. I’ve only had the Edge for a week but I absolutely love it. The 250 HP 4 is peppy and more than adequate. While most of the car ratings folks ding it for “dated styling,” I think they’re nuts.
