2020 Ford Edge
The class of midsize sport utility vehicles is a crowded one. And it’s easy to get lost in a crowd, but not the 2020 Ford Edge. Like cream that rises to the top, the Edge is one of the best midsize SUVs on the market. There’s no one thing that makes the Edge stand out, but a combination of plush seats, roomy and quiet cabin, fuel-efficient and potent engines are a few of the standout features. In this 2020 preview guide, we’ll show you what’s new for this model year and what’s been great about the Ford Edge all along.
What’s New for 2020?
You know what’s cool? The Edge’s dual-zone automatic climate control is now standard on all trims, replacing the regular AC system of the previous model year. Now you can share a car amicably with your own most comfortable temperature. Besides that, the only other change is that the in-car CD player has been discontinued, so leave the discs at home with your old cassette tapes.
The 2020 Ford Edge seats up to five passengers on two rows of seating. And what seats they are. Supportive yet soft, in cloth or leather, the Edge wraps you in comfort. In the back, the rear seat can recline, so even if you don’t call shotgun, you might score a decent nap back there. The suspension and body smooth out the road for you to help lull you to sleep. And the Edge’s insulated cabin keeps the noise way down, even when going full speed on the highway.
Safety Is Paramount
If that’s sounding a little too comfortable for drivers, know that the 2020 Ford Edge is as safe as they come. The Edge netted a five-star rating from an independent review by the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration (NHTSA). Its best features are adaptive cruise control to keep the car in front of you a comfortable distance away, evasive steering assist to avoid front collisions, and enhanced parking assist to help you in and out of tight spots. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg in this wonderfully safe car.
The 2020 Ford Edge is a composed and refined car with steady acceleration (going zero to 60 in 7.5 seconds), responsive steering, and great handling and braking. Most Edge trims get the stellar turbocharged 2-liter four-cylinder engine that generates 250 horsepower and 275 pound-feet of torque. If you’re looking for more power, there’s the ST-trim exclusive twin-turbocharged 2.7-liter V6 delivering 335 hp and 380 lb.-ft. of torque. That one’s mated to an eight-speed transmission and all-wheel drive. The ST trim level also comes with sport-tuned suspension and sharper steering. Inside, you'll find leather and suede-like seating and sport-themed interior trim for a superior driving experience.
