2014 Ford Edge Exterior

2014 Ford Edge Overview (See Available Styles)

  • Seats five passengers
  • Three engine options, one turbocharged four-cylinder and two V-6s
  • Lots of available technology, including MyFord Touch and SYNC
Ford’s stylish two-row crossover, the Edge, returns mostly unchanged for 2014. The five-seat midsize crossover is larger than compact SUVs like the Escape, but is smaller than three-row SUVs like the Explorer.

The Edge features Ford’s three-bar grille flanked by slit-like headlamps and a prominent front fascia. 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 base engine is a 285-horsepower, 3.5-liter, V-6 making 253 pounds-feet of torque. Also available for added fuel efficiency is a 240-horsepower, turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder EcoBoost engine that makes 270 pounds-feet of torque. The top-of-the-range Sport model features a 305-horsepower, 3.7-liter V-6 with 280 pounds-feet of torque. A six-speed automatic transmission and front-wheel drive are standard, with all-wheel drive available.

Fuel economy is best with the EcoBoost four-cylinder, 21/30 mpg city/highway with front-wheel drive. Both V-6 engines return 19 mpg in the city, but differ slightly on the highway with the 3.5-liter getting 27 mpg and the 3.7-liter coming in at 26. 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 2014 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 2014 Ford Edge a Top Safety Pick.
