How Much Does the 2015 Ford Edge Cost to Own?

Five-year costs for gas, insurance, maintenance, and repairs for the 2015 Edge are estimated to be about $23,794. That’s below average for a midsize SUV.

Is It Better to Buy a Used or New Edge?

The 2019 Edge starts at $29,995 and exceeds $42,355 in its top trim levels. That is a lot higher than a used 2015 Edge’s price range. The Edge receives a refresh for 2019, with exterior design tweaks including new front and rear styling. The Edge also gets standard active safety features like blind spot monitoring, rear cross traffic alert, lane keep assist, and pre-collision assist with automatic emergency braking. An eight-speed automatic transmission and engine stop-start are also now standard.

However, you can save money with the 2015 Edge, which should satisfy most buyers. Some of the active safety features listed above are available in the 2015 Edge, and the refreshed 2019 Edge with the turbocharged four-cylinder engine only gets marginally better fuel economy than the 2015 model.

The highly ranked 2019 Kia Sorento has a base price of $25,990, and it falls in the 2015 Edge’s price range. Unlike the 2015 Edge, the 2019 Sorento has standard Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The Kia also seats seven in three rows, while the Ford seats five in two rows. The Sorento can’t handle curves as well as the Edge, and it also has less cargo space. Unless you need the Sorento’s seating for seven, the Edge is the better choice.

Which Model Year of the Ford Edge Is Best?

The 2015 Ford Edge launched the SUV’s second generation, which includes the refreshed 2019 model. Consider the 2016 Edge, which received the available SYNC 3 infotainment system in place of the complex MyFord Touch system found in 2015-and-older models. The 2014 Edge, the last model of the previous generation, should be less expensive. However, it has a substantially different exterior, lacks a standard rearview camera, and is not available with a turbocharged V6 engine.

Which Used Ford Edge Is Right for Me?

The 2015 Ford Edge is available in four trims: SE, SEL, Titanium, and Sport. The base SE has standard cloth upholstery, a 4.2-inch LCD screen, the voice-activated SYNC connectivity system, keyless entry, and push-button start.

We recommend the SEL trim for most shoppers because it has the best combination of features and value. Building on the base trim, it adds dual-zone automatic climate control and satellite radio.

The Titanium trim provides a hands-free liftgate, leather upholstery, heated front sport seats, the MyFord Touch infotainment system, an 8-inch touch screen, a 12-speaker sound system, and HD Radio. The Sport trim notably includes a 315-horsepower twin-turbocharged V6 engine and a sport-tuned suspension.

What Does Ford's Certified Pre-Owned Warranty Cover?

Ford offers a certified pre-owned program for vehicles six years old or less and with fewer than 80,000 miles. Eligibility is determined by the vehicle’s initial sale date. For its certified pre-owned vehicles, Ford extends the original new-car powertrain warranty to seven years from the original sale date or 100,000 miles. These vehicles also get a one-year/12,000-mile limited warranty after the original three-year/36,000-mile new-car warranty expires. Each Ford CPO vehicle must pass a 172-point inspection. Additional benefits like vehicle history reports, towing, and roadside assistance may be available, so read the Ford warranty page carefully.

Ford does not have one of the better CPO programs among affordable carmakers. Chevy, GMC, Honda, Kia, and Mazda all have better programs.

How Safe Is the Edge?

The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety named the Ford Edge a 2015 Top Safety Pick, which is the institute’s second-highest honor. The Edge received the top score of Good in all but the driver-side small overlap front crash test, where it received the second-highest score of Acceptable.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration gave the Edge an overall rating of five out of five stars, with five stars in the frontal and side crash tests and four stars in the rollover test.

You can also opt for front, side, and rear parking sensors.

2015 Ford Edge Versus the Competition

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

Like the Edge, the 2015 Nissan Murano earns good fuel economy estimates, provides a comfortable ride, and scores high for crash test safety. Both of these are highly regarded midsize SUVs that were redesigned for 2015. If you favor more buttoned-down handling, go with the Edge. If you’re looking for an upscale interior, choose the Murano.

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

The 2015 Toyota Highlander and the Edge are both high-ranking midsize SUVs. The Highlander provides better seating and cargo practicality than the Edge, while the Ford provides the right balance of handling and comfort. The Highlander can seat up to eight, while the Edge only seats five. The Ford also has a maximum cargo capacity of 83.7 cubic feet compared to the Edge’s 73.4 cubic feet. Your choice comes down whether you need the Highlander’s added cargo and seating space or the Edge’s superior driving dynamics.

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

The 2015 Kia Sorento sits low in our class rankings, and it can’t compete with the Edge in terms of safety or performance. It has a third row, but it’s cramped. The Edge is the better choice overall. If you absolutely need third-row seating, skip both of these and look elsewhere.

2015 Edge Performance

How Does the 2015 Ford Edge Drive?

The 2015 Ford Edge provides a good balance between a comfortable ride and poised handling. The Sport model has even more responsive handling.

The SE, SEL, and Titanium trim levels come with a 245-horsepower turbocharged four-cylinder engine. Those trims are also available with a 280-horsepower V6. The Sport trim has a 315-horsepower twin-turbocharged V6. Every trim comes with a smooth-shifting six-speed automatic transmission.

The base engine provides sufficient power for most Edge shoppers. However, acceleration can feel sluggish in certain situations, such as maintaining highway speeds when climbing steep hills. The midlevel V6 feels more responsive, and the Edge Sport's twin-turbo V6 provides strong acceleration and sounds great.

Does the 2015 Ford Edge Get Good Gas Mileage?

The base 2015 Edge gets an EPA-estimated 20 mpg in the city and 30 mpg on the highway, which are very good ratings for the class. The base engine with all-wheel drive is rated at 20/28 mpg city/highway. The two V6 engines get roughly the same fuel economy numbers. The 280-horsepower V6 has an EPA rating of 18/26 mpg with front-wheel drive, while the 315-horsepower V6 returns 18/27 mpg.

2015 Ford Edge Towing Capacity

When properly equipped, the 2015 Edge can tow up to 3,500 pounds.

2015 Edge Interior

How Many People Does the 2015 Edge Seat?

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 ventilated front seats, and heated rear seats.

The Edge's front seats are comfortable, and the back row provides ample space for adults. The interior is both quiet and upscale.

How Many Car Seats Fit in the 2015 Ford Edge?

For securing child safety seats, the Edge has complete sets of LATCH connections for the rear outboard seats and a tether anchor for the middle seat. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety gave this system the second-highest rating of Acceptable for ease of use. The IIHS said the outboard tether anchors could be confused for other hardware and a lower anchor is set too deep in the passenger-side rear seat.

2015 Ford Edge Features

The base Edge’s SYNC connectivity system includes Bluetooth, a USB port, and voice command functionality. Standard features also include push-button start and MyKey, which lets you do things like set speed and audio volume limits for secondary users.

Available features include navigation, satellite radio, dual-zone automatic climate control, and the MyFord Touch infotainment system, which includes an 8-inch touch screen.

The MyFord Touch system has been maligned by many critics for its clunky interface in many Ford products. Be sure to thoroughly test the system before buying an Edge that's equipped with it. You can also control climate and audio settings using physical buttons, making the infotainment system easy to use while driving.
