2021 Ford Edge
#28 of 2021 SUVs
#40 of all 2021 vehicles
The Edge, a mainstay of Ford's lineup since 2007, is a midsize SUV with seating up to 5. It handles mud, snow, and sand with ease with optional all-wheel drive (AWD). The Edge has technology that is now expected: Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. Exceeding the average MPG (miles per gallon) for its class, it reduces fuel costs and the carbon footprint. Ford offers a 3-year, 36,000-mile basic warranty, and a 5-year, 60,000-mile powertrain warranty on its lineup.
We estimate that the 2021 Ford Edge has a vehicle lifetime fatality chance of 0.0333% and a vehicle lifetime injury chance of 3.807%, 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 3.807% chance of being injured.
Compared to the average vehicle, the 2021 Ford Edge is 29% less likely to result in a fatal accident. Compared to other suvs, the 2021 Ford Edge is 18% less likely to result in a fatal accident.
Active safety features with Ford's Co-Pilot360 greatly enhance occupant safety by reducing the likelihood of a crash. Active safety systems that are standard on the Ford Edge include: Pre-Collision Assist with Automatic Emergency Braking, Lane Keeping System, and BLIS Blind Spot Detection with Cross-Traffic Alert.
Another safety feature seems simpler but should still be considered. Optional side mirror turn signals alert others of your intention to turn or switch lanes allowing them to react accordingly, which can prevent accidents caused by not seeing a vehicle in the blind spot.
