2013 Ford Edge Exterior

2013 Ford Edge Overview (See Available Styles)

Restyled for the 2011 model year, the Ford Edge features a few changes for 2013. Most notably, all-wheel drive is now available on all models and the six-speed automatic transmission is available with a sport mode to make things more interesting for the driver. The SEL adds optional leather upholstery with Alcantara simulated suede inserts, a body-color grille instead of chrome and 20-inch wheels. The five-seat crossover slots above the Escape and below the Flex and Explorer in the Ford lineup.

The Edge features Ford’s three-bar grille, a prominent front fascia with slit-like headlamps. Compared with other crossover SUVs in the segment, the Edge is less rounded off than the Nissan Murano, but not as boxy as the Toyota Highlander. A high beltline gives the four-door, five-passenger vehicle a sleeker look than the Subaru Forester. Standard wheels are 17-inch alloy, while 18-, 20- and 22-inch wheels are offered depending on trim and option package.

Ford offers up three engines, a four-cylinder and two V-6s. The 240-horsepower, 2.0-liter, turbocharged four-cylinder EcoBoost develops 270 pounds-feet of torque driving the front wheels. A 285-horsepower, 3.5-liter, V-6 with 253 pounds-feet of torque is available on the SEL and Limited with either front- or all-wheel drive. The top-of-the-range Sport model features a 305-horsepower, 3.7-liter V-6 with 280 pounds-feet of torque, also FWD or AWD. A six-speed automatic transmission is standard for all engines.

Fuel economy is the turbo four-cylinder EcoBoost’s to brag about with 21 mpg in the city and 30 mpg on the highway. Both V-6 powerplants return 19 mpg in the city, but differ slightly on the highway with the 3.5-liter achieving 27 mpg and the 3.7-liter coming in at 26. Those figures are for the front-wheel-drive configuration and match or beat the Edge’s V-6 competitors, while equaling some of the four-cylinders. With all-wheel drive, the 3.5-liter V-6 returns 18/25 mpg city/highway, while the 3.7-liter checks in with 17/23 mpg.

The 2013 Edge features cloth upholstery standard, with leather offered as an option on all but the base model. Ford’s SYNC voice-activated controls and MyFord Touch infotainment system are optional, as is a premium Sony audio system. SYNC and MyFord Touch add Wi-Fi capability, text-to-voice capability, HD Radio with iTunes Tagging and voice-activated navigation system. The system replaces several buttons with touch-sensitive pads. Ambient lighting, power rear lift gate, high-intensity discharge headlamps and panoramic sunroof are among the notable available features.

All the expected safety features are present, including front, front side-impact and side-curtain airbags; stability, traction and roll control; antilock brakes with emergency braking assist; blind spot mirrors; Ford’s SOS Post-Crash Alert System; and tire-pressure monitoring. Adaptive cruise control with collision warning system, BLIS (Blind Spot Information System) with cross-traffic alert are available, as are rear parking sensors and a rearview camera system. The IIHS named 2013 Ford Edge a Top Safety Pick.
