The Ford Edge has been a consistent go-to option for those looking for a quality midsize SUV, and Ford continues that trend with the 2023 Ford Edge. With all-new options and enhancements, the Edge remains one of the leading options for those who want an affordable midsize SUV that delivers on style, features, and comfort. Being great-looking with excellent fuel economy, safety, and convenience accouterments easily makes the Ford Edge a worthwhile pick for SUV shoppers.
There are various new updates for the 2023 model year outing, so those looking for something fresh and feature-rich won’t be disappointed. Some of the new features include the all-new ST Interior Package, the perimeter alarm being made standard on the ST trim, and Iconic Silver fog lamps being included in the SEL Convenience Package. The ST Interior Package includes leather Miko Suede insert seats with Race Red and Raptor Blue accent stitching, as well as a perforated leather steering wheel that also sports Race Red and Raptor blue stitching with the ST logo. This package also comes with a center console lid, door inserts, and front and rear floor mats.

One of the more troublesome aspects in designing a comfortable and properly-equipped midsize SUV is maintaining an efficient fuel economy while having proper propulsion that makes the vehicle feel responsive and easy to handle. Finding that perfect balance for a midsize SUV can be difficult, but Ford managed to find it almost perfectly with the 2023 Edge. It not only comes with great features but has a snappy lineup of two different powertrains that provide different levels of range depending on what you’re looking for.
Both engine options are configured in all-wheel drive, so the Edge can provide whether you plan to take it on a dirt trail, drive in bad weather, or just want a better grip on the road for more precise handling. For those who want a bit more power out of their SUV—with great acceleration and plenty of performance to boot—there is the 2.7L EcoBoost turbocharged V6 delivering an impressive 335 hp at 380 lb-ft of torque. This engine is mated to a seven-speed automatic transmission and manages 19 MPG in the city and up to 25 MPG on the highway—or a combined 21 MPG.
If you want the best fuel economy the Edge has to offer, you’ll prefer the EcoBoost 2.0L turbocharged inline four-cylinder. This powertrain provides 250 hp at 280 lb-ft of torque and is mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission. While it may not be as powerful as the V6, it makes up for it with gas mileage, affording you up to 21 MPG in the city and up to 28 MPG on the highway. That gives you a total combined fuel economy of 23 MPG with the inline four-cylinder, making it a great midsize commuter vehicle, especially with its precision handling and fine-tuned suspension.
When it comes to practicality, the 2023 Ford Edge is the one midsize SUV that doesn’t miss a beat. From the available LED lighting array to help you see when visibility is poor to the available rack side rails so you can store your cargo on top of the Edge, there are a number of features that make this midsize SUV the choice among customers looking for something that features all of the basics utilitarian functionality one would expect from an SUV, along with some great comfort amenities. Privacy glass on the exterior comes standard across the trim line, along with automatic high-beam headlamps, while the available hands-free liftgate makes loading and unpacking the Edge a breeze.
Inside you have other useful features, such as the rotary gear shift dial, so you can quickly and easily switch gears with just a simple flick of the dial. And whether you’re in the front or rear of the vehicle, the Ford Edge comes standard with dual-zone electronic automatic climate control with cabin particulate air filtration. This means you not only get clean air during your commutes to and from work, school, or shopping, but you also get temperature controls that ensure every aspect of the cabin feels comfortable at all times, regardless of the weather outside.
Available ambient lighting can help set the mood, while a power-tilt telescoping steering column with memory settings can make driving easier and far more comfortable. Available ten-way power driver seat and heated front seats with EasyFold rear seats make seating arrangements considerably adaptable; combine that with the available heated leather-wrapped steering wheel and available adaptive cruise control, and you can see how the Edge isn’t just about utility but practical convenience with a dash of luxury as well.
The steering wheel also includes audio and media controls, so you can easily adjust the volume or change the music track without having to take your eyes off the road. With additional convenience features like a compass, push-button start, and a cargo management system, you can see how the Edge can make travel far more efficient, relaxing, and fun.
When it comes to safety during your driving schedule, you can’t get much safer than the Ford Edge, and this is thanks to standard built-in technologies like the Ford Co-Pilot360—a suite of driver awareness and driver assist features, such as lane assists, automatic emergency braking, and parking assist. You also have passive safety in the form of airbags and LATCH support, while active assists like SOS Post-Crash Alert System and Belt-Minder come standard. Tire pressure monitoring, an HD rearview camera, and the Personal Safety System are standard features on every trim of the 2024 Edge.
Utility tech like USB ports, the SecuriLock anti-theft system, and MyKey for remote access to the Edge make it a snap to navigate entry, exit, and maintain devices inside the vehicle. In fact, there are other tech-enriching features, such as the availability of a wireless charging dock and FordPass Connect Wi-Fi hotspot support, so you can stay connected even when you’re outside the range of typical networks. You even have access to an AC power outlet in case you need a stronger electric fount.
Indulging in the enjoyment of travel comes readily with the inclusion of features like the Ford SYNC 4A infotainment suite; this comprises a massive 12.0-inch HD digital touchscreen as part of the center stack in the vehicle, with a multi-functional touchscreen. You can easily sync your smart device to the vehicle through Apple CarPlay or Android Auto, or you can listen to your favorite tunes or podcasts via SiriusXM Satellite Radio support.
Alternatively, you can take your listening experience to the next level with the B&O Sound System from Bang & Olufsen, featuring a 12-speaker surround sound setup. And with built-in navigation support and three years of connected route guidance and predictive destinations with live traffic reporting, you can always count on the Edge to safely guide you to your destination quickly and efficiently.
