2022 Ford Edge Among Best SUVs For Reliability And Fuel Efficiency

The Ford Edge has earned considerable praise from Consumer Reports over the past few months as the consumer organization has named the crossover a superior option to the Honda Passport, one of the best SUVs for less than both $35k and $40k, one of the 10 best SUVs on sale today, and one of the best SUVs in terms of rear-seat comfort, while the Edge was also the top ranked vehicle in the U.S. in terms of brand loyalty in May 2022. Now, the 2022 Ford Edge has once again earned accolades from Consumer Reports, which just named the crossover among the best mid-sizers in terms of reliability and fuel efficiency.

To make this particular list, mid-size crossovers and/or SUVs must score well in Consumer Reports‘ road tests, get 21 miles-per-gallon overall or better, and offer up average or better predicted reliability ratings. Additionally, every vehicle on the list offers an array of standard advanced safety features and performed well in crash testing.

In that regard, the 2022 Ford Edge ranked sixth on this particular list with an overall score of 80, while Consumer Reports called the model “a pleasant, well-rounded vehicle with agile handling and a steady ride.” Other positive attributes include a quiet cabin, as well as a bevy of standard safety features including forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, and blind-spot warning.

The Edge is scheduled to be discontinued in North America following the 2023 model year, as Ford Authority reported in January, but has received a few updates for the new model year. Those include the addition of standard ActiveX seating for Titanium trim and the new ST Interior Appearance Package, as well as the deletion of all Outfitters cargo packages and the SecuriCode Keyless Entry Keypad.

We’ll have more on the Edge soon, so be sure and subscribe to Ford Authority for more Ford Edge news and non-stop Ford news coverage.

    I think that the drivers for consumer report must have a heavy foot when they say overall 23 mpg for the Ford edge. I own a 2020 sel and I get by the computer 32.6 to 33.2 mpg. Overall. They need to learn how to drive.

      What do you get for mileage when computed with a pencil and paper?

    Ford doesn’t care that the Edge & Nautilus are high demand vehicles that the public wants. I’ll be looking to another brand when my 2019 ST is ready to be replaced. I don’t want your EV replacement, maybe a hybrid but Ford won’t do that either. Too bad …

    Real smart Ford, take one of best, most reliable SUV’s and discontinue it.

    I have a 2018 ford edge sport.I purchased it a little over a year ago and I love it. It had a little over 14k miles on it and everything was original as the day it was purchased new. It is loaded with all the comforts a person could ever want and some. It has a very smooth and quiet ride with more than ample space. It is one of the best vehicles I have ever owned. It has things in it that its sister car by Lincoln doesn’t. It performs like a sports car of higher prices if not better. I think Ford is making a horrible mistake by discontinuing this vehicle. But like everything else that is dependable and customers like and appreciate companies stop making it and replace it with something not even close to being worth buying. Please Ford, rethink your plans to discontinue the Edge. You’re not discontinuing the F150.

    They (ford) is well known to discontinue vehicles that are popular. Why I don’t know.

  7. John Schoon

    Ford, I have a 2018 and a 2022 edge love those cars, please keep making them for the states.

    Seriously do not understand why the Edge and Lincoln version will no longer be offered. It is perfect size for this senior citizen. I had 3 edges prior to leasing an Escape in 2021. After 1 yr of struggling to get grandkids car seat in back seat of escape the dealer kindly bought out my lease and I went back to an Edge. Leased a 2022. It may be my last Ford unless they continue to offer a midsize SUV that is NOT an EV. I would consider a hybrid but not all EV. I feel FORD is shooting themselves in the foot with the decisions they are making lately and I have been a ford customer for over 45 yrs. That may change when my lease is up in 2025.

    Yeah but the suv has a battery issue my mom owns a 2018 Ford Edge she has had nothing but trouble with the battery she has had six batteries put in her car and they have not lasted more three months and has a matter of fact the car is at the dealership now it’s been there a least three times since Christmas and everything is fine says the dealership we don’t believe it because there’s something wrong with this car I am glad that the model is being discontinued.

    2019 sel, really enjoyed long distance driving and fuel efficiency

    I bought a 2019 Edge Titanium turbo 4 cylinder in 2021 with 38,000 miles. I couldn’t be happier. So far I’ve only had to buy a new battery, a few months ago, no other issues. I’m a little surprised seeing the reports of good gas mileage. For me, gas mileage in town is only acceptable. My Titanium comes with the 800 watt B&O audio system and it’s very good. The audio in the less equipped versions is near awful.
