If you are in the market to buy a used Ford Edge, we’ve got the info you need to find the Edge that’s right for you.. Making its debut in 2007, the Ford Edge is the first Crossover SUV that ford created. Let’s break down the three generations of the Edge so we can better understand the differences between each past generation.
First Generation (2007-2010)
This first model of the Edge came with a 3.5L V6 with a six-speed automatic transmission. It produced 265 horsepower and 250 lb. ft. of torque, and got approximately 16 mpg City / 24 mpg Highway. It also has some available upgrades such as a panoramic moonroof and DVD Entertainment Center.
In 2008 a few new options became available including; Ford’s SYNC infotainment, a voice-activated navigation system, and a power rear liftgate. The SEL Plus trim from 2007 was replaced by a new Limited trim level.
For the year 2009, Ford added a new Sport Trim to the Edge lineup. This new trim offered sport suspension, an 8-piece exterior body kit, and unique exterior paint choices.
Improvements to the engine and drivetrain were made in 2010 which increased the Edge’s fuel economy to 18 mpg City / 25 mpg Highway. Ford also added some package options on the Limited trim for the 2010 model.
Second Generation (2011-2014)
Born in 2011, the second generation of the Ford Edge acquired newly designed wheels, a bold new grille, and an improved interior. Not only did the aesthetics get a facelift, so did the inner workings of the vehicle. The 3.5L V6 got some tweaks bumping its power up to 285 horsepower and 253 lb. ft. of torque. Because of the adjustments, you’ll get an estimated 19 mpg City / 27 mpg Highway from this Edge. The Sport edition received a brand new 3.7L V6 which pumps out an impressive 308 horsepower and 208 lb. ft. of torque. Late in 2011, Ford also released an available Turbocharged Four-Cylinder engine. MyFord Touch debuted this year, which features a touch screen and a five-way controller.
The turbocharged EcoBoost 2.0L engine was made available in 2012 for the FWD models only. This engine boosted the fuel efficiency up to 21 mpg City / 30 mpg Highway. In addition to the new Ecoboost, Ford also offered two V6 engine options. Along with the increased power, you’ll find yourself enjoying a more comfortable ride than in past years with the added available 10-way power passenger seat with power lumbar control.
In 2013 the biggest upgrade that the Edge received was a new Sport mode being added to the SelectShift 6-speed automatic transmission.
The Edge didn’t receive any major updates in the year 2014.
Third Generation (2015-2019)
In 2015 the Ford Edge went through a massive overhaul. It was fully re-designed with new headlights, LED tail lights, a new grille, and an added rearview camera. It got more interior room, actual buttons for the climate and audio controls to offset the previous complaints about a glitchy MyTouch infotainment system. Interior upgrades included voice-command capabilities, Navigation, Bluetooth, a USB port, and rear heated seats. Not only did the style change but a new standard 2.0-liter EcoBoost engine was added which gave it a greater amount of torque and a towing capacity of 3,500 lbs.
Due to having a myriad of setbacks with the MyFord Touch System, in 2016, Ford introduced the SYNC 3 infotainment system. Ford made a Cold Weather package available along with Adaptive Steering. The Sport trim also received two new engine options--the 3.5L V6 and the twin-turbocharged 2.7L.
The 2017 model brought with it some much anticipated upgrades in its SYNC 3 infotainment center, including Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. Four new exterior color choices were added as well--Canyon Ridge, Blue Jeans, White Gold, and Burgundy Velvet. Along with new technology and style upgrades, the Cold Weather package comes with a windshield wiper de-icer.
For 2018 the biggest change was the newly available SEL Sport Appearance Package.
In 2019, Ford decided once again to add a new performance model, this time being named the ST performance model. This year’s Edge also received a new 8-speed automatic transmission.
That brings us to the current 2020 Ford Edge, which received six new color options, and the loss of the CD Player in the Titanium and ST models. Also, if you want to tow that toy on the weekend, make sure to get All-Wheel Drive and add the Class II Trailer Tow Package.
