What's New For 2018?
There have been no major changes from the outgoing model, so almost everything remains the same on the 2018 Ford Edge.
The Edge is only available as a midsized SUV.
There are four different trim levels available on the 2018 Ford Edge. The base SE trim is powered by an engine capable of generating 245 hp and 275 lb-ft of torque and is equipped with front-wheel drive. The list of standard features includes a driver seat that is height-adjustable, a rearview camera, and a 4.2-inch LCD touchscreen display monitor. The SEL trim has the same base engine as the SE but adds an optional 3.5-L V6 that generates 280 hp and 250 lb-ft of torque. The SEL features upgraded upholstery, satellite radio, and leather trim on the steering wheel. The next trim level up is the Titanium, which features everything found on the SEL and adds a power liftgate, HD radio, and smartphone app integration for Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Finally, the line-topping Sport trim adds a 2.7-L turbocharged V6 engine that can generate 315 hp and 350 lb-ft of torque. All-wheel drive comes standard, as does interior sport trim, a steering wheel that is power adjustable, and unique designs on the front and rear of the body.
If you get the standard 2.0-L engine, you will notice that there is not much punch to it. Acceleration is somewhat sluggish, as the vehicle gets from 0 to 60 mph in roughly 8.3 seconds. However, braking is excellent on the 2018 Ford Edge. The vehicle is able to make a panic stop from 60 mph in 119 feet, which is a bit shorter than average for this segment. The brakes have a secure feel to them, and the pedal has just the right amount of firmness to inspire driver confidence. Steering is weighted well and feels pretty natural. Also, the steering provides a sufficient and timely amount of feedback to the driver on where the wheels are going. The only real downfall here is the handling. The Edge feels a little bit too rigid and might be fatiguing for some drivers. However, the driver aids equipped on the Edge keep the vehicle in check, even if it does seem like they are a little bit too dominant at times. The ride quality itself is smooth thanks to the seamless shifting that you get from the 6-speed. Also, the Edge is capable of doing some very light off-roading when equipped with all-wheel drive. Front-wheel drive, however, makes off-roading in the Edge quite the hassle.
The Edge pulls in decent EPA ratings for its class. At its very best, the Edge gets 24 mpg combined (20 city/29 highway) from the base engine with front-wheel drive. However, at its lowest, the Edge gets 19 mpg combined (17 city/24 highway) on the V6 with AWD.
The 2018 Ford Edge is regarded as one of the more affordable family-friendly midsize SUVs to come out this year. While it could use more accelerative punch and fine-tuning for better handling, the Edge puts in a good performance this model year.
How to Calculate The Dealer Cost of a Ford Edge
Formula for Calculating Dealer Cost:
- Example: Base Ford Edge invoice price + the dealer Invoice price of all the options + destination - Holdback = Total Dealer Cost.
- What is Holdback? A hidden amount that manufacturers give back to a dealer. It is a percentage of the MSRP or the Invoice price.
Total Dealer Cost - Rebate and Incentive + Taxes / Licensing Fees = True Dealer Cost. (You can get rebates and incentives here)
Note: All Ford Edge MSRP, invoice and dealer cost dollar figures above are approximate amounts. Prices are subject to change without notice.
A note about rebates: Most rebates are subtracted from the "on the road" figure. In most cases, you can have the rebate if you are arranging your own financing or you are paying cash. If you decide to use the manufacturer’s low interest financing, you do not usually get the rebate. Ask your dealer for details.
