With so many SUVs on the market today, finding the perfect one for you may prove to  be a difficult yet fun challenge. However, the 2018 Ford Edge may have everything you need. This sleek SUV offers the comfort, space, and cargo capacity to suit large families, as well as the powerful performance and capability you'd expect.

Drivers in Oneida, Rome, and Utica can learn more about all the new features, technology, and performance upgrades with our in-depth 2018 Ford Edge review.

Performance near Oneida, NY

The 2018 Ford Edge is available with three engine variants. The base model is equipped with a turbocharged 2.0L EcoBoost® 4-cylinder, which produces 245 horsepower and 275 lb-ft of torque. The upper trim levels have the available 3.5L V6 engine that delivers 280 horsepower and 250 lb-ft of torque. Both engines are standard with a six-speed transmission and front-wheel drive, with all-wheel drive optional.

The third option is for the Sport trim, which is a turbocharged 2.7L EcoBoost® V6, which generates 315 horsepower and 350 lb-ft of torque. It's also paired to a 6-speed automatic transmission and standard all-wheel drive.

Depending on your performance needs, there's plenty of versatility with the Edge. The 2.0L engine is quick and capable, though its V6 counterparts are exceptionally powerful. In any configuration, the Edge offers a secure and confident driving experience, with minimal body roll and agile handling. The steering is responsive and light, and the brakes are easily modulated and effective.

For those living in climates with harsh winters, the Edge's all-wheel drive system is surefooted and consistent on wet, slushy, or snow-covered roads.

Comfort and Space

The seating in the 2018 Ford Edge is near-luxury, with plenty of padding and support, as well as high-quality materials. There's ample head- and legroom throughout, and the back bench reclines for added backseat passenger comfort. Combined with a quiet cabin, smooth ride, and optional convenience and comfort upgrades, the Edge is great for long road trips.

Despite its smaller size, the Edge offers an impressive 39.2 cubic feet of cargo space with the seats up, and 73.4 cubic feet with the seats down. With its wide opening, expansive cargo bay, and flat-folding seats, this is all usable cargo space, which puts it at the top of its class in cargo capacity.

Ford Edge Technology and Safety

The 2018 Ford Edge has an impressive array of standard features, including automatic headlights, privacy glass, remote lock, air conditioning, a height-adjustable driver's seat, a rearview camera, Bluetooth® connectivity, voice controls, an intuitive 4.2-inch display screen and a 6-speaker sound system. 

Those features are just the tip of the iceberg, however. The Ford Edge accommodates every type of driver with its available features, which include:

  • Rear parking sensors
  • Dual-Zone Electronic Automatic Temperature Control
  • Auto-dimming rearview mirror
  • Hands-free, foot-activated liftgate
  • Smart-charging USB Ports (2)

There are also many packages for customization, which bundle such options as an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system, Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ integration, heated and ventilated seating, navigation, and rear-seat entertainment.

The Ford Edge can also be equipped with many safety features, including Lane Departure Warning, the Lane-Keeping System, the Blind Spot Information System with Cross-Traffic Alert, and a front 180-degree camera.
