With its rich, roomy comfort and thrifty-yet-punchy performance, the 2020 Ford Edge is covering all the bases in modern travel.
What’s new for the 2020 Ford Edge?
This year, every Edge trim model comes standard with dual-zone automatic climate control. Now you and your favorite front-seat passenger can set two different temperate zones for maximum road-trip comfort.
The 2020 Ford Edge is also doing away with the CD player, which isn’t too surprising. At this point, most drivers carry their entire music collection with them via streaming service or smartphone hard drive. We doubt many buyers will miss it.
Instead, drivers can take heart in the fact that every Edge comes standard with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto to project smartphone apps onto the standard 8-inch touchscreen infotainment display. Which of course is a vast improvement over CDs in general.
Why choose the 2020 Ford Edge?
With one of the roomiest interiors in this segment, the Ford Edge is a family-loving midsize crossover. Besides space for your heads, legs, and elbows, the Edge treats you to 39.2 cubic feet of cargo space for your road trip luggage, tennis rackets, and golf clubs. Fold the rear seats down for 73.4 cubes’ worth of maximum cargo space, which can’t help but come in handy when you’re in need of gardening supplies or it’s time for your annual trip to IKEA.
The 2020 Edge also impresses with its standard tech lineup. Ford’s Sync 3 system is both easy to use and quick to respond--the gold standard of in-car infotainment systems. The system also includes complete smartphone integration with the aforementioned Apple CarPlay and Android Auto technology. Press a button on the steering wheel and you can even access your phone’s state-of-the-art voice controls.
This crossover keeps you on your toes with a long list of safety aids. Every Edge comes standard with blind-spot monitoring and lane keeping assist to help you navigate a breakneck commute with a little extra peace of mind. The forward collision warning system includes automatic emergency braking, technology that can actually intervene on behalf of your personal safety.
Is the 2020 Ford Edge AWD or 4WD?
Like its fellow car-based crossovers, the Edge offers optional AWD on all but the sporty ST trim, which comes standard with this traction-boosting performance gear. If you plan on taking a winter road trip or like to hit off-road trails on the weekend, you’ll appreciate the all-wheel-drive Ford Edge.
How much can the 2020 Edge tow?
This Ford crossover can haul your boat (or Jet Ski) out for a fun-filled weekend. With the all-wheel drive and the Class II Trailer Tow package, the Edge can tow max loads of 3,500 pounds. Even without these extra features, the Edge is still pretty capable, with max tow ratings of 1,500 pounds.
