The front wheel drive version is powered by a 2L turbocharged 4-cylinder engine making 250 horsepower and 275 pound-feet of torque mated to a 7-speed automatic transmission.

The Ford Edge moves into 2021 with a few minor changes, the touchscreen gets an increase in size to 12-inches, the infotainment system also gets upgraded to Sync 4 while rear parking sensors are now on all trims.
The 2021 Ford Edge is a well-designed midsize crossover SUV, with a long list of standard options, and performance to rival its competition. The Edge is best compared to the Nissan Murano, the Kia Sorento and the Chevrolet Equinox, but Ford offers a more powerful set of powertrain options, as well as competitive fuel economy. Passenger volume, rear legroom and cargo capacity in the Edge are among the best in the category.
