2018 Ford Edge Review

Do you ever find yourself running out of space in your vehicle? Sedans can be roomy, but they don't quite hold up if you have to haul a lot of gear around or want to go on extended family trips. One of the best solutions to that problem is a crossover vehicle. With their increasing popularity, however, finding the right crossover for your needs can be difficult.

One of the best options is the new 2018 Ford Edge. This versatile vehicle is one of the best crossovers on the market with its numerous exciting features suitable for all drivers in the Mechanicsburg and Harrisburg areas. Learn more about the 2018 Edge, and discover if this stunning crossover is best suited for your needs.


No matter what kind of Ford Edge trim you get, you'll have plenty of power under the hood. The base model comes with a Twin-scroll 2.0L EcoBoost® engine, which produces an impressive 245 horsepower. If that's not enough, then you can opt for the 3.5L V6 engine, which boosts power up to 280 horsepower.

If performance is your priority however, then the Sport trim level is an ideal fit. With its enhanced 2.7L EcoBoost® engine, it delivers an impressive 315 horsepower, which is why the Ford Edge Sport has earned the title of the most powerful gas V6 in its class.1


Inside the 2018 Edge, you'll find plenty of room for passengers and cargo alike. With 73.4 cubic feet of cargo volume behind the first row, you can pack all of your camping gear, sports equipment, or luggage without worrying if it'll all fit. Even if you need the second row for your friends or family, you'll still have 39.2 cubic feet of room for your belongings.

When you do bring your relatives or friends along for a ride, they'll have plenty of room, too. Rear passengers get 40.3 inches of headroom and 40.6 inches of legroom. Front-row passengers will have plenty of space to stretch out in, too. The driver and front passenger can enjoy 40.2 inches of headroom and a spacious 42.6 inches of legroom.


A modern crossover wouldn't be complete without some of the latest tech. Fortunately, the Ford Edge contains a suite of cutting-edge technology, so your drives are as fun as they are relaxed.

With the available SYNC® 3 infotainment system, you can utilize the connectivity prowess of Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ to integrate your compatible smartphone to the 2018 Edge. It also uses voice recognition, so you can make commands without taking your eyes off the road or your hands off the steering wheel.

Technology isn't just about entertainment, however. There are also several safety aids that are available for the Ford Edge, such as the Lane-Keeping System. This system comes with two separate functions, lane-keeping alert and lane-keeping aid, to provide you with a through safety net. With these two combined features, this advanced system detects unintentional lane departure, and will warn you through a series of steering wheel vibrations. If there is unintended lane departure, then it'll apply steering torque to help guide you back to your lane.

Other available safety systems include Adaptive Cruise Control, the Blind Spot Information System with Cross-Traffic Alert, the Enhanced Active Park Assist System, the remote start system, and more.
