The Edge, a mainstay of Ford's lineup since 2007, is a midsize SUV with seating up to 5. The Edge provides exceptional fuel efficiency for its class, saving your wallet and the environment. The Edge has technology that is now expected: Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. With optional all-wheel drive (AWD), it can easily handle mud, snow, and sand. Ford offers a 3-year, 36,000-mile basic warranty, and a 5-year, 60,000-mile powertrain warranty on its lineup.


The 2020 Ford Edge is above average compared to all vehicles.

Comparison to all vehicles.  This plot shows RSC safety scores on the horizontal axis vs. the number of vehicles with each safety score (depicted by bar height and percentages at the bottom). Colors reflect vehicle safety, ranging from red (not that safe) to green (safer). For reference, a score of 0 implies a 0.15% chance of driver death (13% chance of driver injury) over 15 years, and a score of 100 reflects a 0.016% chance (1.4% chance of driver injury). The 2020 Ford Edge has a score of 87, implying a 0.033% chance of driver death (3% chance of injury). If equipped with optional advanced driver safety features, the chance of death falls to 0.029%, and the chance of injury falls to 2.6%.

We estimate that the 2020 Ford Edge has a vehicle lifetime fatality chance of 0.0333% and a vehicle lifetime injury chance of 3.806%, meaning the average driver has a 0.0333% chance of dying in an accident if they drive the car under regular conditions for fifteen years, and a 3.806% chance of being injured.

Compared to the average vehicle, the 2020 Ford Edge is 31% less likely to result in a fatal accident. Compared to other suvs, the 2020 Ford Edge is 20% less likely to result in a fatal accident.

2020 Ford Edge offers AEB optionally. With AEB, the vehicle lifetime fatality chance drops by 14%.
