Engines, Powertrain And Gas Mileage:
Powering all 2010 Ford Edge models is a 3.5 liter V6 engine that generates 265 horsepower and 250 pound-feet of torque. It's paired with a six-speed automatic transmission (a manual transmission is not available).
All models come standard with front-wheel drive, but all except the SE offer optional all-wheel drive. With the AWD, power is sent to the front wheels until slippage occurs, and is then sent to the wheels with optimum traction.
Towing capacity is 3,500 pounds when properly equipped and the Edge goes from a standstill to 60 mph in a respectable 8.1 seconds.
The EPA estimated gas mileage for a front-wheel-drive Edge is 17 mpg city and 24 mpg on the highway, while an AWD comes in at 15 mpg city and 22 highway. Both are about average for midsize crossover SUVs.
Standard safety features for all 2010 Edge models include antilock disc brakes (ABS), stability control with rollover avoidance logic, blind spot mirrors, front-seat side airbags, and full-length side curtain airbags.
In government crash testing, the 2010 Edge was awarded five out of five stars for side impact testing for both front and rear passengers. In frontal impact tests, the Edge received five stars for driver protection and four stars for the passenger.
The cabin of the 2010 Edge is attractive, comfortable and user-friendly. It's telescoping steering wheel, many storage bins and reclining rear seats are big contributors to its roomy and airy feel, which can be further enhanced with the optional glass Vista Roof.
Storage capacity is a decent 32 cubic feet with the backseat in use, but folding down the second row maximizes cargo capacity at 69 cubic feet.
The 2010 Edge is perhaps most noted for its comfortable and quiet ride. The standard V6 provides strong acceleration and the Edge handles road bumps and ruts with little fanfare. This carlike SUV drives with capable handling and a solid feel.
