The Edge, a mainstay of Ford's lineup since 2007, is a midsize SUV with seating up to 5. Having better than average EPA (miles per gallon) for its class, it reduces fuel costs and pollution. With standard 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 2023 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 2023 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 2023 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 2023 Ford Edge is 32% less likely to result in a fatal accident. Compared to other suvs, the 2023 Ford Edge is 21% less likely to result in a fatal accident.

2023 Ford Edge offers AEB optionally. With AEB, the vehicle lifetime fatality chance drops by 14%.

Active safety features with Ford's Co-Pilot360 can substantially reduce the risks of harm to vehicle occupants by preventing severe accidents. The following active safety systems are included even on lower trims/versions of the 2023 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. Side mirror turn signals are optional on the Ford Edge. They alert other vehicles of your intention to switch lanes, which allows the other vehicle's driver to prevent an impending accident with you.

And it is safer than many comparable models.
