2013 Ford Edge Overview

Is the 2013 Ford Edge a Good Used SUV?

The 2013 Ford Edge is a good used midsize SUV. It offers a range of engines with good horsepower, and its interior space is among the best in the segment. It also has a number of available active safety features, including adaptive cruise control, a rearview camera, and blind spot detection. When it was new, we named the Edge our 2013 Best 2-Row SUV for the Money.

Used 2013 Ford Edge Performance and Interior

The Edge offers a solid lineup of four- and six-cylinder engines. A 285-horsepower V6 is the Edge’s standard engine. A 240-horsepower, turbocharged four-cylinder EcoBoost engine is available, and the top-of-the-line Sport trim has a 305-horsepower V6. Front-wheel drive is standard, and all-wheel drive is available in all models but those with the EcoBoost engine. A six-speed automatic transmission is standard across the engine lineup. The Edge has a relaxed ride and solid handling for a midsize SUV. However, the Sport lineup with its 22-inch wheels delivers a bumpier experience some might find uncomfortable.

Fuel economy ranges from 21 mpg in the city and 29 mpg on the highway with the turbocharged EcoBoost Ford Edge SE with front-wheel drive, to 17/23 mpg city/highway in the Ford Edge Sport with the 305-horsepower V6 and all-wheel drive. A convenient capless gas tank is standard.

The Edge has room for five in two rows of comfortable, cloth seats. A nice feature is the reclining second row. Leather seats and 10-way power front-row seats are available. Models equipped with the available moonroof shrink the available rear headroom. There are complete sets of LATCH child-seat connections on the outboard second-row seats, as well as a tether anchor for the middle seat.

The base Edge has manual air conditioning, a manually adjustable tilting-and-telescoping steering wheel, manual climate control, remote keyless entry, and a six-speaker stereo with an audio input jack. Dual-zone automatic climate control, an upgraded Sony stereo with HD Radio, satellite radio, a navigation system, a rear-seat entertainment system, and MyFord Touch with an 8-inch touch screen are available. The MyFord Touch system is confusing to use and should be avoided.

Is the 2013 Edge the Best Model Year to Buy?

The 2013 Ford Edge is part of a generation that launched in the 2007 model year and ended with the 2014 model.

Which Used Ford Edge Is Right for Me?

The Edge comes in four trims: SE, SEL, Limited, and Sport. The base SE features single-zone air conditioning, four 12-volt outlets, steering wheel-mounted infotainment and cruise control buttons, remote keyless entry, and a six-speaker stereo system with a 4.2-inch display. The Ford Edge SEL trim adds a 10-way power driver’s seat, below-floor cargo storage, dual-zone automatic climate control, Ford SYNC smartphone connectivity, satellite radio, and rear park assist. The Ford Edge Limited offers heated and 10-way power front seats, leather seats, MyFord Touch with two displays, an 8-inch touch screen, a 12-speaker audio system, HD Radio, Ford SYNC voice-activated smartphone connectivity, and a rearview camera. The Sport trim adds a sport suspension, a fold-flat front passenger seat, aluminum pedals, and chrome dual exhaust tips. The SEL trim level is the best choice for its mix of driver comfort and overall functionality.

Even with its above-average reliability, you might want to consider a certified pre-owned Edge. For all of its certified pre-owned vehicles, Ford extends the original new-car powertrain warranty to seven years or 100,000 miles and provides a one-year/12,000-mile limited warranty. Each CPO vehicle must pass a 172-point inspection. Additional benefits like towing and roadside assistance may be available, so read the Ford warranty page carefully. The model's original sale date determines whether it is eligible for the CPO program.

2013 Ford Edge and Other SUVs to Consider

Which Is Better: 2013 Ford Edge or 2013 Ford Explorer?

The 2013 Ford Explorer seats seven and earns higher crash test scores than the Edge, but the Edge is the better SUV in most other ways. The two share the same base V6 engine, but the Edge weighs less and accelerates faster. The Edge also has better handling and provides little body roll on curvy roads. As for reliability, the Edge is much better. If you’d like to cross shop other SUVs with seven seats, you may also want to consider the 2013 Chevrolet Traverse or 2013 Ford Flex.

Which Is Better: 2013 Ford Edge or 2013 Toyota Venza?

The 2013 Toyota Venza and Ford Edge are very different types of SUVs. The Edge is the more dynamic of the two, with a strong base V6 engine and deft handling. The Venza’s base four-cylinder engine isn’t as powerful as the Edge’s, and the SUV doesn’t handle as well through turns. However, the Venza does have a bit more cargo space, a higher safety score, and lower total ownership costs. Both are solid SUVs.
