The 2018 Ford Edge bucks the three-row SUV trend, giving buyers more space to stretch out and a superior cabin to enjoy.
2018 Ford Edge
Why Buy the Ford Edge?
The Ford Edge is one of the most comfortable SUVs on the market. Buyers love the five plush seats which also boast optional seat coolers and warmers. The front seat has ample head and leg room, and the back is comfortable enough even for tall passengers and reclines for maximum comfort. The cabin is super quiet and almost vibration-free. You'll also enjoy the abundant cargo space and the clutter-free console and cabin.
The Ford Edge has superior braking, good acceleration, and great handling. While the base trim is not designed to be sporty, it does well for its class. Those looking for a more muscular option might look at the Edge Sport model.
Is the Ford Edge Bigger than the Escape?
Yes, the 2018 Ford Edge is both wider and longer than the 2018 Escape. Inside, they both seat five on two rows, but the Edge has a little more head and leg room for passengers. Where you'll really notice the difference is in cargo capacity. The Edge has 10 extra cubic feet of cargo capacity (the equivalent of two more pieces of luggage) than the Escape has. If having space for all of your stuff is a must, the Ford Edge is right for you.
Does the Ford Edge Have 3rd Row Seating?
The Ford Edge has just two rows of seating with some of the best head and leg room in the midsize SUV class. The Edge seats five passengers comfortably. If you need more seating, take a look at the Ford Explorer, with seating for seven (or six if you opt for captain's chairs in the second row).
Does the Ford Edge Have AWD or 4WD?
The 2018 Ford Edge comes standard with front-wheel drive, but it has all-wheel drive available. What's the difference between AWD and 4WD? All-wheel drive sends power to all four wheels all the time, significantly increasing handling. Four-wheel drive sometimes sends power to all four wheels and sometimes to just two, designed for off-roading. Both AWD and 4WD are popular, but generally don't provide good fuel economy, so be prepared to pay more at the pump for these options.
