With this review, you can learn more about the Ford Edge and its technology, performance, and safety features. By the time you reach the end, you'll know if the 2018 Ford Edge is your next automotive companion for your adventures around Worthington, Harrisville, and Clarion.

Ford Edge Technology

When you slide into the driver's seat of the Ford Edge, you'll be greeted by a tech-packed cabin with features geared towards your convenience. Many of these helpful features are found within the SYNC® 3 infotainment center, an available system that comes equipped with: 

  • Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ are two apps that allow you to integrate your compatible smartphone with the SYNC® 3 system. By doing so, you can access your favorite playlists, use Siri® or Google®, check your estimated travel time to your destination, and much more.
  • SiriusXM Traffic & Travel Link® is your go-to digital assistant for navigating around traffic jams thanks to its real-time traffic updates. You can also compare fuel prices from gas stations, receive the latest weather forecast, find movie showtimes, and more.  
  • SYNC® AppLink™ provides a voice control function to more easily use your favorite apps, such as Spotify® and Pandora®, without taking your hands off the wheel or eyes off the road.  

Although the SYNC® 3 infotainment system rewards 2018 Edge drivers with many helpful features, this Ford SUV also comes with more technology, such as SiriusXM® Satellite Radio. This feature provides over 100 channels of commercial-free music and talk shows to keep you entertained on your drives.

Ford Edge Performance

Under the hood of the 2018 Edge, you'll find one of three engines, allowing you to pick the engine that generates the power you need.

First up, there's the 2.0L EcoBoost® engine, which produces 245 horsepower and 275 lb-ft of torque. Paired to a 6-speed SelectShift® automatic transmission with paddle activation, this standard powertrain provides a smooth yet engaging performance to accelerate down those long and open stretches of highway.

Next up, there's the 3.5L Ti-VCT V6 engine, which delivers 280 horsepower and 250 lb-ft of torque. With its twin independent variable camshaft timing (Ti-VCT), it boosts horsepower without sacrificing efficiency. It does so by allowing the intake and exhaust valves to adjust independently rather than having them open and close at fixed points.

Last but not least, there's the 2.7L EcoBoost® V6 engine, which is capable of delivering an incredible 315 horsepower and 350 lb-ft of torque. With this engine combined with Intelligent All-Wheel Drive, you can power up those sharp inclines and down those steep slopes with precision and ease.

Ford Edge Safety

Although jamming out to your favorite artists and revving the engine is fun, you'll also want to remain safe while you're driving. Luckily, the Ford Edge comes with a vast array of advanced safety systems to keep you alert, aware, and focused on the road ahead. Some of its available driver-assisting features include:

  • Blind Spot Information System (BLIS®) with Cross-Traffic Alert: By utilizing a radar, BLIS® detects approaching vehicles in your blind spot and alerts you to their presence. Cross-Traffic Alert will warn you of any cars creeping up from the side when you're reversing out of a parking space.
  • Lane-Keeping System: If the Ford Edge starts to drift from the center of the lane, this system will warn you of any lane departure. It can even apply steering wheel torque and steering wheel vibrations to help guide you back to your lane.
  • Enhanced Active Park Assist: By using ultrasonic sensors, this system can identify a spot and steer the Ford Edge into it. All it takes on your part is operating the accelerator, brake, and gear shifter.

With all of these state-of-the-art safety features working in unison, you can have some peace of mind as you're driving down a busy highway.
