2024 Ford Edge Among Most Reliable And Fuel Efficient SUVs

Though it’ll soon be discontinued and replaced by production of a pair of all-electric models, the Ford Edge remains a heavily-awarded vehicle in the minds of many – including Consumer Reports. That organization has lavished quite a bit of praise on the Edge over the years, naming it one of the best crossovers/SUVs that cost less than $40k, is both reliable and fuel-efficient, American made, and a superior choice over the Chevy Blazer, to name just a few. Now, Consumer Reports continues to praise the outgoing crossover – in this case, the 2024 Ford Edge, specifically – which made the cut once again as one of the most reliable and fuel-efficient crossovers/SUVs on the market.

This is particularly notable given the fact that the mid-size crossover/SUV remains a solid choice for many, as it’s equally capable of hauling around smaller families and their gear as it is serving as a utilitarian vehicle or even the perfect vessel for tailgating and other purposes. However, as many are well aware, it doesn’t really matter how great a vehicle is if it’s unreliable, and poor efficiency can be a real drain on the bank account as well.

That’s what inspired Consumer Reports to create this specific list, which consists of both two- and three-row mid-size crossovers that scored well in the organization’s testing, have average or better predicted reliability scores, and return at least 21 miles-per-gallon. Each of these vehicles also scored well in road tests and comes equipped with a bevy of safety features, to boot.

The 2024 Ford Edge once again met those standards, and also proved to be a nice overall vehicle to drive as well. CR calls it a “pleasant, well-rounded SUV” that feels more like an upscale model thanks to its supreme driving manners, as well as its quiet cabin. As has historically been the case, the only real knock CR has on the Edge is its left-side footrest, which it says sits a little too close to the driver, but otherwise, there just aren’t many bones to pick here.

    Really enjoying my 2024 Edge ST Line , one of the nicest rides I’ve had and the 2 liter engine has lots of zip when you need it !! It’s a shame Ford is dropping it.

    I’m ready for a new one. I’ve owned two in the past. What a shame. I don’t like the Bronco line.

    Good night sweet prince. I’m tempted to trade my 2021 in on a 24 before they go. I loved my Edges over the past 7 years from when I first got a used 2012 Sport.

    Pretty great how they get all that 2024 model reliability data already huh. What a scam. People actually still count on outlets like that for information..?

    2024 Edge was released well before the new year. It’s a great ride! I have the 2024 Ford Edge Titanium and a 2024 Lexus IS 350 F Sport and often prefer the comforts and luxury of the Edge.

    Just another story that proves Jim Farley at Ford is taking the company in the wrong direction!
    Discontinue a model people like and buy, because the total EV agenda must be pushed !
    Instead of discontinuing the Edge, build it as a HYBRID for better economy, so people can still buy one, and your company wide economy figures can be better.
    But nooooo, you must push Total EVs !

      Agree with you on that Jim. It’s a great car people love it so why not just add an EV model to the line instead of discontinuing. I still drive my 2013 limited edge and would like to get a 2024 ST. My only beef is the Knob for the gear.

    Dropping it is another Ford blunder, like the Fusion. The latter would still be one of the best mid-size cars on the road, even without a redesign.

    P.S. Rotary gear selectors (Ford) and dashboard located gear buttons (Lincoln) are terrible.
