Pros

Attractive, aggressive styling; interior comfort; available technology; three exciting engine choices


Value Writeup

The Edge is now in its second generation, and Ford has upped the style and sophistication of its popular crossover. The result is an exciting alternative to competitors like the Nissan Murano, Chevrolet Traverse and Hyundai Tucson. With three great powerplants, athletic handling, loads of available technology and an MSRP starting at $27,640, the Edge provides real value in the crowded crossover segment.


Model Highlights

Four trim levels are offered for 2012--SE, SEL, Limited and Sport. The SE is front-wheel drive, while all other models are offered in either front-wheel or all-wheel drive. SE and SEL models are powered by a turbocharged 3.5L V6 engine that produces 285 hp. The Limited features a 285-hp 3.5L V6, which utilizes Ford's twin independent variable camshaft timing (Ti-VCT) to allow for greater power and increased fuel efficiency over previous 3.5L engines. And the Edge Sport will derive its motive power from the same 3.7L V6 found in the Mustang, another Ti-VCT unit that produces an impressive 305 hp and 280 ft-lb of torque. Both V6s will be paired with a 6-speed automatic transmission and the Sport will get the SelectShift paddle system to allow precise control for the driver.

A brand-new 2.0L EcoBoost 4-cylinder engine is available on all but the Sport models. It utilizes direct injection and turbocharging to make 240 horsepower and 270 lb-feet of torque, all while achieving 24 combined mpg.

Inside, the Edge has comfortable seating for five and 32 cubic feet of cargo room with the rear seats up, more than double that with them folded. Available features include a power liftgate and a Vista Roof that combines a sliding sunroof with a large glass panel over the rear seats.

Standard in Limited and Sport and available in SE and SEL is the new MyFord Touch, which utilizes a combination of 8-inch LCD touchscreen and voice command to control audio and climate systems; the system replaces many traditional knobs and dials and allows drivers quicker, easier access to common devices. MyFord pioneers the use of iTunes tagging, which "captures" a song being played and stores it in memory for later purchase from iTunes. Included in the MyFord interface are two USB ports, three RCA jacks, and a digital media card dock that also accepts a mobile broadband card.

Also available on the 2012 Edge is Ford's Adaptive Cruise Control and Collision Warning with Brake Support. The system detects a potential crash and warns the driver, reduces vehicle speed, and pre-charges the brakes for a quicker stop. The Edge also offers Ford's Blind Spot Information System (BLIS) with Cross Traffic Alert, which warns of cars in adjacent lanes and of approaching vehicles when backing out of parking spots.

Finally, for teenaged drivers, MyKey allows Edge owners to program set vehicle speeds and to encourage seatbelt usage with persistent beeping and reduced audio volume.


Model News

A new smaller-displacement engine option appears for 2012--a 2.0L EcoBoost 4-cylinder that makes 240 horsepower yet helps the Edge achieve 24 combined mpg. SYNC now comes on the SEL. A few new colors are available, including Bordeaux Reserve Red Metallic, Mediterranean Blue Metallic and Earth Metallic.

Summary
Ford Motor Company (Ford) is recalling certain model year 2012-2013 Edge vehicles manufactured from September 2, 2010, through April 25, 2013, and equipped with 2.0L engines. The fuel line pulse damper metal housing may crack as a result of an improper manufacturing process. A cracked fuel line pulse damper housing may result in a combination of fuel odor, weepage, or a continuous leak while the fuel system is pressurized.

Consequence
A fuel leak in the presence of an ignition source may result in a fire.

Ford will notify owners, and dealers will replace the fuel line with one that does not have a damper, free of charge. The safety recall began on February 25, 2014. Owners may contact Ford at 1-866-436-7332. Ford's number for this recall is 13S13. IMPORTANT: This recall supersedes recall 12V-438. All vehicles that have been remedied under the previous recall need to have the current remedy applied.

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.

Summary
Ford Motor Company (Ford) is recalling certain model year 2012-2014 Ford Edge and Lincoln MKX vehicles manufactured September 2, 2010, to November 30, 2013; 2013-2014 Ford Taurus and Lincoln MKS vehicles manufactured August 25, 2011, to November 30, 2013; and 2013-2014 Ford Flex and Lincoln MKT vehicles manufactured September 12, 2011, to November 30, 2013. In the affected vehicles, the halfshaft retention circlip may not have been properly installed, and as a result, the halfshaft may move outward and disengage from the linkshaft while driving and without prior warning.

Consequence
If the halfshaft and linkshaft become disengaged while driving, power will no longer be transmitted to the wheels, increasing the risk of a vehicle crash. Additionally, if the parking brake is not applied before exiting the vehicle, the vehicle may roll away despite the transmission being placed in 'Park', increasing the risk of injury to exiting occupants and bystanders.

Ford will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the vehicles to make sure that the halfshaft is properly retained. If it is not, dealers will replace the linkshaft and also replace the halfshaft if it shows evidence of spline damage, free of charge. The recall began on August 4, 2014. Owners may contact Ford customer service at 1-800-392-3673. Ford's number for this recall is 14S10.
