The Edge, a mainstay of Ford's lineup since 2007, is a midsize SUV with seating up to 5. Exceeding the average MPG (miles per gallon) for its class, it reduces fuel costs and the carbon footprint. With standard all-wheel drive (AWD), it handles mud, snow, and sand with ease. Ford offers a 3-year, 36,000-mile basic warranty, and a 5-year, 60,000-mile powertrain warranty on its lineup.

The 2022 Ford Edge is safe 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 2022 Ford Edge has a score of 88, implying a 0.032% chance of driver death (2.9% chance of injury). If equipped with optional advanced driver safety features, the chance of death falls to 0.027%, and the chance of injury falls to 2.5%.

We estimate that the 2022 Ford Edge has a vehicle lifetime fatality chance of 0.0319% and a vehicle lifetime injury chance of 3.6473%, meaning the average driver has a 0.0319% chance of dying in an accident if they drive the car under regular conditions for fifteen years, and a 3.6473% chance of being injured.

Compared to the average vehicle, the 2022 Ford Edge is 32% less likely to result in a fatal accident. Compared to other suvs, the 2022 Ford Edge is 21% less likely to result in a fatal accident.

2022 Ford Edge offers AEB optionally. With AEB, the vehicle lifetime fatality chance drops by 14%.

Ford's Co-Pilot360 active safety features can protect loved ones by preventing accidents and reducing accident severity. The following active safety systems are included even on lower trims/versions of the 2022 Ford Edge: Pre-Collision Assist with Automatic Emergency Braking, Lane Keeping System, and BLIS Blind Spot Detection with Cross-Traffic Alert.

Another vehicle feature may make a vehicle safer, even if not at the forefront of technological advances. 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.

But it is about as safe as many comparable models.
