Model Highlights

Ford's Edge is offered in SE, SEL, and Limited models for 2008. All three are powered by a 265-horsepower, 3.5L V6 engine and six-speed automatic transmission, and each one offers a choice of an intelligent all-wheel-drive system for all-weather driving, or a more economical front-wheel-drive setup good for warmer-weather states.

The active, on-demand all-wheel-drive system can deliver more torque to the wheels that can use it most, even before the other wheels slip, and it's paired with the AdvanceTrac traction control to transfer torque front to back and side to side.

All Edge models get the AdvanceTrac with roll stability control system, which helps enhance safety and stability on slippery surfaces or in quick maneuvers. A four-wheel anti-lock braking system, front side thorax air bags, and Safety Canopy side-curtain bags that protect both rows are all standard as well.

The Edge can seat five; the second-row seatback reclines, and the seat is also split 60/40 and folds forward providing a level load floor. A fold-flat front passenger seat is also available and provides space for items as long as eight feet. Depending on the model, the rear seat folds either manually with a release or automatically with the EasyFold remote release.

With car-derived underpinnings, including a MacPherson strut front suspension, four-link rear independent suspension, and isolated front subframe, the Edge is tuned for a smooth on-road ride with crisp handling.

The base SE comes well equipped, including power accessories and keyless entry, but the SEL adds appearance add-ons and convenience features, including fog lamps, chrome exhaust tips, unique upholstery, leather trim, an aluminum instrument panel finish, automatic headlamps, an upgraded sound system, and a reverse sensing system. At the top of the range, the Limited adds heated memory front seats, heated side mirrors, leather seats, dual-zone automatic climate control, a fold-flat front passenger seat, and a high-end Audiophile nine-speaker sound system with six-disc changer.

The available Panoramic Vista Roof, which offers two large glass panels, a front tilt-and-slide one and a rear fixed one, to provide plenty of natural light when wanted. It comes with power-operated cloth shades.

Other standout options include a reverse sensing system, voice-activated navigation, a universal garage door opener, 20-inch chrome-clad wheels, a rear DVD entertainment system, and the Sync hands-free communication and navigation system, which can interface with cell phones and media players, either wirelessly or via USB, using voice commands.


Model News

The Ford Edge enters its second model year with a new top-of-the-line Limited model, and a new Interior Appearance Package, which brings red leather seats with contrast stitching. Other features newly available for 2008 include a power liftgate, a voice-activated, DVD-based navigation system, and the Sync system, which provides a voice-activated interface for cell phones and media players. The 18-inch wheels get a new design, and larger 20-inch wheels are now offered.

Four new colors join the line for 2008: Vapor Silver Clearcoat Metallic, Light Ice Blue Clearcoat Metallic, Dark Ink Blue Metallic, and White Sand Tri-Coat.


Value Writeup

The distinctively styled 2008 Ford Edge offers cargo space and interior versatility that's similar to traditional truck-based SUVs like Ford's Explorer, yet with car-based mechanical underpinnings it makes more sense for most shoppers, with its improved ride, handling, and safety. The Sync hands-free interface and Panoramic Vista Roof especially are notable features unavailable in competing models, while all Edges stand out for their seating comfort. The Edge is a Top Safety Pick from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) and has received five-star ratings in front and side protection in the federal government's crash-test program.

Side Rear Passenger

Crash Test Note
Results based on a 35 MPH frontal crash and 38.5 MPH side crash. Results are reported in a range of one to five stars, with five stars indicating the best crash protection for vehicles within the same weight class. This test used driver and passenger belts and airbags.

NHTSA Rollover Rating

Rollover Note
The Rollover Resistance Rating is an estimate of your risk of rolling over if you have a single vehicle crash. It does not predict the likelihood of that crash. The Rollover Resistance Rating utilizes a "fishhook" maneuver which is a series of abrupt turns at varying speeds to see how "top-heavy" a vehicle is. The more "top-heavy" the vehicle, the more likely it is to roll over. The lowest rated vehicles (1-star) are at least four times more likely to roll over than the highest rated vehicles (5-stars).
