2013 Ford Edge | Review, Price, Interior, Exterior, Engine. – This popularity largely stems from the Edge’s relatively maneuverable size, its handsome interior and many available high tech features. The latter includes items such as adaptive cruise control, blind-spot warning and cross traffic alert, a dual screen rear-seat entertainment system, the Sync voice command system and the MyFord Touch electronic interface.

The Edge also boasts an overall driving experience that seems European in character, with a feeling of solidity and low road noise. A 285 horsepower V6 engine is standard, and a fuel efficient, turbocharged four cylinder engine is optional. Oddly, you have to pay extra to get the four cylinder, but it simultaneously produces strong power and impressive fuel economy (30 mpg highway). With these fuel savings alone, it would take an estimated four years for this “EcoBoost” engine option to pay for itself.

One of four Ford crossovers there’s also a new Escape this year, joining the Explorer and Flex the 2013 Edge wears its mostly tasteful clothes well. We’re not the most ardent fans of the VW-style grille that starts high at the hoodline and goes low, all the way to the chin spoiler, but otherwise it’s neatly put together and free of built-in blemishes. The cockpit’s a fault free zone on the surface, depending on your take on MyFord Touch. It’s almost devoid of button clutter, tightly built, and in this generation (since 2011), blessed with much improved interior materials.

The Edge was refreshed in the 2011 model year, when it gained the grille and new interior. It also upped its base 3.5 liter V 6 by 20 horsepower to 285 hp, bettered its six-speed automatic and its handling, and upgraded the Sport’s 3.7 liter to 305 hp. Last year, Ford dropped a new twist into the Edge, a 2.0 liter turbocharged four rated at 240 horsepower, good for decent acceleration and lineup leading highway gas mileage of 30 mpg. It’s a wide spread of performance, but it neatly bridges the five-seat experience now from Escape to Explorer, something it couldn’t do without the front drive EcoBoost model.

2013 Ford Edge Interior :
2013 Ford Edge Interior. – Crossover vehicles are the counter effect to SUV styling, stripped of all the boxy authenticity that made sport utes so real. Even if a HUMMER H3 was as far from reality as a sport-ute could possibly be.

In the place of all those hard SUV corners and bluff front ends, crossovers get softly rounded curves and gently tapered glass. The Ford Edge hews exactly to that template, and it has since it was brand new. Today’s version isn’t so different from the first generation model that tooled the streets from the 2006 to 2010 model years. It’s been smoothed over, almost invisibly in some passages, but it’s not radically changed from the outside.

2013 Ford Edge Exterior :
2013 Ford Edge Exterior. – There are vertical strips of woodgrain on Limited models, giving the console an architectural lift as the real wood trim does in a Range Rover, and the stack itself has been cleaned up to incorporate an LCD screen, sized medium or large, depending on whether MyFord Touch has been installed. On the Edge Sport, Ford adds on black-tinted metallic trim, a body kit, and grey inserts on the seats, with contrasting stitching.

On any model where it’s fitted, the optional Sony sound system sits behind a glossy black panel on the center stack, and lends some high end audio look to the design. MyFord Touch does the same, with its bright LCD glow.

The Edge’s front seats provide excellent support on longer trips. In back, the reclining outboard seats are nicely shaped and offer satisfactory legroom, but headroom can be tight if you order the dual-pane “Vista Roof” option. Furthermore, the middle seat is for short trips only due to its slablike seatback. Should you need a third row seat, we highly recommend the Ford Flex.

Without the power liftgate, the Edge’s rear hatch can be hard for shorter drivers to close. Cargo capacity is a respectable 32 cubic feet with the backseat in use; folding it down opens up a not so flat cargo floor and a max capacity of 69 cubes. That’s more than a Nissan Murano can manage, but less than the Explorer or larger crossovers like the Flex and Chevy Traverse.

2013 Ford Edge Engine :
2013 Ford Edge Engine. – The 2013 Ford Edge comes standard with a 3.5 liter V6 that produces 285 hp and 253 pound feet of torque. A six-speed automatic transmission and front wheel drive are standard, but all-wheel drive is optional. EPA estimated fuel economy stands at 19 mpg city/27 mpg highway and 22 mpg combined.

Optional on all but the Edge Sport is a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder (dubbed EcoBoost) that produces 240 hp and 270 lb-ft of torque. A six speed automatic paired to front-wheel drive is the only configuration available. In Edmunds performance testing, the Edge EcoBoost went from zero to 60 mph in 8.4 seconds a bit slower than average but not unreasonably so. EPA estimated fuel economy is an impressive 21 mpg city/30 mpg highway and 24 mpg combined.

An option on the SE and SEL may throw you for a small loop: it’s a $995 turbocharged engine that’s smaller in displacement and less powerful than the base six. The “EcoBoost” four puts out 240 horsepower, and teams up with the same six-speed automatic, but only is offered with front-wheel drive. The turbo’s tuned for low-end boost, so the power losses aren’t all that noticeable when the Edge is carrying just a passenger or two, Ford says it’s only at most, a second slower to 60 mph than the V-6-powered Edge. The gain comes at the gas pump, where the four-cylinder turns in EPA ratings of 21/30 mpg. Ford says it’s been pleased with the number of shoppers paying more for fuel economy, we’re waiting to see how long they maintain the price premium in the face of rising EPA gas mileage standards.
