2024 Ford Edge Among Best SUVs Under $40,000

The 2024 Ford Edge carries on into the new model year completely unchanged, an unsurprising development given the fact that production of the crossover is slated to end in March. Looking further down the road, Edge production at the Oakville Assembly plant in Canada will be replaced by¬†all-electric versions of the Ford Explorer and Lincoln Aviator crossovers, while the next-gen Lincoln Nautilus will be built in China. Regardless, the Edge continues to earn accolades, having recently ranked third in the mid-size crossover segment in J.D. Power’s 2023 U.S. Dependability Study, as well as ranking as one of the best crossovers priced under $40k and among the best overall American vehicles on sale by Consumer Reports. Now, that same publication has named the 2024 Ford Edge as one of the best SUVs that cost less than $40k once again.

To come up with these rankings, Consumer Reports uses the overall vehicle scores it gathers from its own surveys and road tests. To qualify, these two- and three-row SUVs must not only have high overall scores, but also an as-tested price tag of less than $40,000, not just an MSRP that starts under that specific mark.

In that regard, the 2024 Ford Edge ranked sixth in this latest study with an overall score of 79, behind only the Subaru Forester (88), Honda CR-V (85), Hyundai Tucson Hybrid (85), Honda CR-V Hybrid (84), and Hyundai Tucson (82), while also tying it with the Subaru Outback, Kia Sportage Hybrid, and Toyota Venza.

CR called the 2024 Ford Edge a “roomy and capable SUV,” praising its smooth and quiet acceleration, spacious and comfortable interior, ample passenger and cargo space, along with its bevy of safety technology and Sync infotainment. On the downside, the organization isn’t as big a fan of the crossover’s “uneven” driving position caused by the location of the footrest, however.

    Wait until you have to put a water pump in it. If it’s a 3.5 it will cost you $2400.00

    I really like my 2017 Ford Edge Sport.
    I wish I could afford the 2024,especially since they are being discontinued. I will probably switch to another make and model, when my Edge is done. B3cause the Escape is too small and the Expedition is too big !! The Edge is just right
