The 2020 Ford Edge is a member of the capable Ford SUV family, offering sharp style, impressive safety features, and a range of powerful engine options. In addition to its crossover appeal, the Edge also offers some serious towing capacity.

Drivers in Mechanicsburg, Harrisburg, and Carlisle can find out more about the 2020 Ford Edge towing capacity with our in-depth review.


The base-model Edge comes with a 2.0L turbo I-4 engine that produces 250 horsepower and 280 lb-ft of torque. This engine mates to an 8-speed automatic transmission that shifts power through the front wheels or through all four wheels depending on the configuration. When equipped standardly with front-wheel drive, the Edge can tow up to 1,500 pounds. Opt for the available all-wheel drive (AWD) and that jumps to 3,500 pounds of towing capacity.  

A 2.7L EcoBoost® V6 engine is also available that produces 335 horsepower and offers strong, low-end torque coming in at 380 lb-ft. This engine comes naturally paired with AWD, meaning you'll get the 3,500-pound capacity right off the bat.

Towing Safety Features

All Edge models include rear view camera equipment as well as a full complement of safety equipment. The rear camera feature is helpful when backing up or maneuvering around tight spaces since it gives you a better view of the rear of the vehicle as well as your attached trailer.

For added towing security, the Trailer Tow Package is also available that gives you a 4-pin trailer wiring harness, a hitch receiver, and trailer away control.

Pre-Collision Assist with Automatic Emergency Braking-standard for the Edge-is a feature that monitors your distance from the vehicle ahead and helps you avoid a frontal crash. While this is an excellent safety feature to have in any driving situation, it helps you maintain a safe distance when pulling an attached trailer and avoid panic-braking scenarios.

The BLIS® (Blind Spot Information System) with Cross-Traffic Alert helps you see the area around your vehicle-as well as the attached trailer-enabling you to pass and merge on busy highways safely.


Along with the Edge's performance, capability, and safety features, it's also well-equipped with technology at every trim level. The SYNC® 3 infotainment system is available and features a streamlined menu system, a crisp touchscreen display, and Ford+Alexa that brings Amazon capabilities into your vehicle. This system is easy to operate, recognizes voice commands, and allows you to access all your media for better entertainment and connectivity.

A premium B&O Sound System by Bang and Olufsen is available as well to enhance your entertainment experience by giving you concert-quality sound and clarity for your long drives.

HD radio™, satellite radio, and other exciting technology features can be added to the Edge, ensuring that you have the most enjoyable ride possible with a variety of media options.
