2008 Ford Edge Performance
This performance review was written when the 2008 Ford Edge was new.
The Ford Edge provides an impressively smooth ride and generally good acceleration, though the brakes and non-sporty handling disappoint some test drivers.
- "Softer than some, stiffer than others, the 2008 Ford Edge hits the mass-appeal sweet spot in ride and handling. Coupled with a refined, eager powertrain and notably quiet highway cruising, the roomy, comfortable, versatile Edge is an extraordinarily well-rounded way to move throughout the world." -- Kelley Blue Book
- "The Ford Edge is based on the Mazda6 platform. It has a good ride and strong powertrain, but lacks refinement. The Edge isn't particularly agile but handling is ultimately secure." -- MSN
- "Unfortunately, the Edge's EPA-estimated gas mileage isn't what one might expect from a car-based vehicle of this size with a V-6 and a six-speed transmission." -- Cars.com
- "As for driving dynamics, the Edge is reasonably cooperative and agile at moderate speeds but with little appetite for aggressive driving." -- Los Angeles Times
