2021 Ford Edge Specs
2021 Ford Edge Specs Wedged between compact crossovers and medium-sized three-row models, the Edge doesn’t really have a clear goal. Its rivals are a small group of mid-sized two-row crosses, including the Nissan Murano and the five-passenger version of the Hyundai Santa Fe. More competition will soon arrive in the form of the 2021 Chevrolet Blazer and a five-seater version of the Volkswagen Atlas. Ford’s plan to abandon cars in favor of trucks and SUVs in the United States also enhances the importance of the Edge.
The Edge is the first crossover to wear the St badge previously applied to performance cars like Focus St and Fiesta St. It is likely to be the most controversial of the 2021 model year updates, which also include changes indoors and the addition of Ford’s newco-Pilot360 suite of driver aides.
The 2021 Ford Edge is a refreshment of an existing model, rather than a complete overhaul, so things don’t change too dramatically in the cabin. The biggest difference is a rotary button drawn from the Fusion sedan, which frees up space for a cordless phone refill pad in an adjacent cube hole. The ST performance model gets well-reinforced leather and fabric sports seats, and we appreciate that Ford didn’t go with a boy Racer-like the flat-bottomed steering wheel, instead of opting for a more sober but functional design. Titanium models get leather seats with heating and cooling in the first row.
Top level models get familiar Sync 3 system used in many other vehicles, with an 8.0-inch touchscreen and Apple CarPlay/Android auto compatibility. The Waze integration and Amazon Alexa connectivity are also available, the latter allowing drivers to do things like remotely unlock and start their car. For 2021, the Edge also gets an integrated 4g Wi-Fi hotspot, which requires a dedicated data plan.

The Edge offers a larger volume of passengers than the Nissan Murano or the five-seater version of the Hyundai Santa Fe (Hyundai also offers a three-row Santa Fe XL model with seven seats). This translates into more shoulder space and leg space than the Hyundai and Nissan as well, although the Santa Fe offers a bit more margin before. The Edge also beats its rivals in the loading space, at 39.2 cubic feet with the rear seats and 73.4 cubic feet with the rear seats bent. The Ford also has a beautiful, large opening for loading large objects in the back.
The 2021 Edge is the First Utility vehicle to get Ford co-Pilot360 suite of the driver, including front collision warning, standalone emergency braking, blind spot monitoring with cross traffic alert, help Of track-guard, a back-up camera, and high automatic beams as standard equipment. Also standard, but not considered a part of co-Pilot360 is the post-collision braking, which automatically applies the brakes to prevent the car from rolling and hitting something else after an initial impact, according to Ford.
The crossover Edge, new from the wheels to the roof and based on the Ford medium-sized vehicle platform, was introduced for the model year 2015 and included a redesigned front and rear suspension as well as improved driving dynamics. The 2016 model is essentially postponed, with only detail changes. Available in SE, SEL, Titanium and sports models and with forwarding or integral transmissions, Edge is the first Ford to be equipped with the company’s adaptive steering technology, making the crossover easier to maneuver. AdvanceTrac with roll Stability control is standard in the range of models. Edge has three engine options: a standard four-cylinder double-scrolling 2.0 liters EcoBoost and an EcoBoost V6 of 2.7 L. A normally aspirated 3.5 L V6 engine is also available. All are coupled to a six-speed automatic transmission with speed pallets. Ford’s auto start-stop system is available with the 2.0 L.
