2015 Ford Edge Overview

Is the 2015 Ford Edge a Good Used SUV?

The 2-row 2015 Ford Edge is a good choice for a family hauler. It doesn’t skimp on driving enjoyment or features, and it has an upscale cabin with nice, soft materials. Cargo space is also good for the class.

Used 2015 Ford Edge Performance and Interior

The 2015 Ford Edge comes with a standard 245-horsepower, turbocharged four-cylinder EcoBoost engine that should meet most driving needs. A more potent 280-horsepower V6 is available. The Sport trim has a standard twin-turbocharged V6 that generates 315 horsepower. Front-wheel drive is standard, and all-wheel drive is available in all models. A six-speed automatic transmission is the only available transmission. The Edge offers a smooth ride and poised handling, while the Sport model provides even more responsive handling. The base 2015 Edge gets an EPA-estimated 20 mpg in the city and 30 mpg on the highway, which is good for the midsize SUV class.

The 2015 Ford Edge seats five and comes standard with cloth upholstery. Available features include leather upholstery, 10-way power-adjustable front seats, heated and cooled front seats, heated rear seats, and a heated steering wheel. The Edge's front seats are comfortable, and the rear row provides ample space for adults. Cargo space is good for a 2-row midsize SUV. For securing child safety seats, the Edge has complete LATCH systems for the rear outboard seats and a tether anchor for the middle seat.

Standard features in the 2015 Ford Edge include push-button start, MyKey (which lets parents set speed and audio volume limits for young drivers), and Ford's SYNC system, which includes Bluetooth and a USB port. SYNC uses voice commands to control compatible mobile devices. Traditional climate and audio buttons instead of virtual touch-sensitive buttons is a nice touch. Available features include navigation, satellite radio, dual-zone automatic climate control, and the MyFord Touch infotainment system, which includes an 8-inch touch screen.

Should I Consider Another Used Edge?

The 2015 Ford Edge launched the SUV’s second generation, which includes the 2017 model. You might consider a 2016 Edge because it has an updated available SYNC 3 infotainment system, which has a less confusing layout than the MyFord Touch system and clearer smartphone integration.

2015 Ford Edge and Other SUVs to Consider

Which Is Better: 2015 Ford Edge or 2015 Nissan Murano?

The Nissan Murano, like the Edge, was redesigned for 2015 and earns good fuel economy, provides a comfortable ride, and scores high for crash-test safety and predicted reliability. Both are highly regarded midsize SUVs, and the choice comes down to whether you favor handling or an upscale interior. If the former, go with the Edge; for a plush interior, go with the Murano.

Which Is Better: 2015 Ford Edge or 2015 Toyota Highlander?

The 2015 Toyota Highlander excels in practicality. It can seat up to eight, while the Edge only seats five. The Highlander can carry 83.7 cubic feet of cargo compared to the Edge’s 73.4 cubic feet. Your choice comes down to passenger seating – three row or two row?

Which Is Better: 2015 Ford Edge or 2015 Kia Sorento?

The 2015 Kia Sorento sits low in our rankings. It can’t compete with the Edge in terms of safety or performance. It is a 3-row SUV, but the seats are cramped, reducing their appeal. The Edge is the better choice.
