Which Ford Edge Has AWD?

Out of the four Ford Edge trims, the Ford Edge ST comes standard with the Intelligent All-Wheel Drive system. However, this drivetrain is available as an optional upgrade on all other trim levels, including the base level Ford Edge SE. The Intelligent All-Wheel Drive system will automatically adjust and increase the traction when you're on slippery roads to make the drive easier and put you in complete control without you having to activate the system. 

Ford Edge Towing Capacity

The crossover class is the perfect class for adventure. They've got space, comfort, and great handling. Plus, they also have the power necessary to help you haul all your additional gear.

Available in the Ford Edge is a Class II Towing Package. With this, you'll have features such as Trailer Sway Control, as well as additional brake- and torque-enhancing features. These allow the Edge to haul up to 3,500 pounds of cargo.

  • Push button start
  • Available SYNC® 3 integrative entertainment
  • Cloth or optional leather for your available 10-way, power adjustable driver's seat

Ford Edge Cargo Capabilities

If you're striking out on your next road trip behind the wheel of the Ford Edge, then you're going to need plenty of cargo room. Fortunately, you'll find 39.2 cubic feet of cargo space just behind the second row.

Of course, you can always fold over the second row for even more space: 73.4 cubic feet, to be exact. With the standard Cargo Management System, which include tie-downs, hooks, and a cargo cover, you'll have no problem securing items of all sizes.

With a different trim, you may have access to standard leather seating, or standard upgrades to entertainment and safety. There's a little something for everyone in the Edge trims!

The glass used for this sunroof is SPF 50 rated, so you can relax and enjoy soaking up the sun without having to worry about getting sunburn or irritation.

 

How Safe is the Ford Edge

The Edge is loaded with helpful safety features. The AdvanceTrac® with Roll Stability Control™ and Curve Control can provide exceptional control while helping you avoid a loss of traction. The Edge is also outfitted with front airbags, side-impact airbags, Safety Canopy® side-curtain airbags, and knee airbags for both the driver and front passenger.
