Used Car: 2013 Ford Edge Review
The 2013 Ford Edge earned reviewer praise for its ample engine power and refined ride, and it gets great fuel economy for the class.
The 2013 Ford Edge has a standard V6 that reviewers said should provide plenty of power for most drivers. A more powerful V6 is available in the Edge Sport, and auto critics wrote that it delivers quicker acceleration. A turbocharged four-cylinder engine is available in front-wheel drive-only models, and most agreed that this engine also has ample power. A six-speed automatic transmission is standard with all engines. A front-wheel drive 2013 Edge with the base V6 nets an EPA-estimated 16/27 mpg city/highway, which is quite good for the class. Turbocharged four-cylinder models are even more fuel-efficient, at 21/30 mpg. Most auto critics agreed that the Edge delivers a compliant ride over rough roads and has composed handling. They noted that the Sport trim feels more agile, though they said that its larger wheels are a detriment to ride quality.
The 2013 Ford Edge has an attractive cabin built with high-quality materials, reviewers said. It seats five in two rows, and most agreed that the front seats are supportive and the rear seats are spacious, though some mentioned that models with the available panoramic sunroof have limited rear-seat headroom. The Edge offers up to 68.9 cubic feet of cargo space with the rear seats folded, which is typical for the class. There are few notable standard features. Available features include leather seats, navigation, a rearview camera, adaptive cruise control, a 12-speaker Sony stereo system, a rear-seat entertainment system, Ford's SYNC voice command system with Bluetooth and a USB port and the MyFord Touch infotainment system. Some critics mentioned that MyFord Touch is not immediately intuitive and can sometimes be frustrating to use.
The 2013 Ford Edge was named our 2013 Best 2-Row SUV for the Money when it was new.
Other SUVs to Consider
Test drivers wrote that the 2013 Nissan Murano has sporty handling and a comfortable ride, as well as ample engine power with its standard V6. The Murano also has a good reliability rating for the class.
According to reviewers, the 2013 Toyota Venza delivers a comfortable ride and has a spacious, opulent interior. A four-cylinder Venza also nearly matches the four-cylinder Edge's excellent fuel economy, and it has a bit more cargo space than the Edge.
