The Ford Edge has long been the proverbial apple of Consumer Reports‘ eye, with the mid-size crossover racking up accolades such as one of the best new SUVs that cost less than $40k, a superior pick over the Chevy Blazer, one of the best mid-size SUVs for the money, and one of the best American vehicles on sale today. Now, that trend continues, as the Ford Edge has once again been recognized as one of the very best American vehicles that customers can buy today, too.
This new list features the best American cars, trucks, and SUVs/crossovers from U.S.-founded and -based companies like Ford, Tesla, General Motors, and Stellantis (which is actually a multinational corporation headquartered in Amsterdam, interestingly enough) based on the consumer organization’s overall score, which is determined via road testing, owner satisfaction ratings, safety, and reliability. Each of these vehicles has also earned CR‘s recommended status, though not every model on the list is actually built in the U.S.
In that regard, the Ford Edge topped the list of mid-size two-row crossovers from traditional U.S. brands with an overall score of 79 out of 100 possible points. The Edge managed to achieve that feat by scoring above average in the organization’s road testing, while earning a good score in predicted reliability and average marks in terms of predicted owner satisfaction.
Unfortunately for those in the market for a new Ford Edge, the crossover is set to be discontinued in North America once production ends at at the Oakville Assembly plant in Canada – which is currently scheduled for April. In the meantime, the Edge continues to post strong sales results, most recently increasing by 98 percent in Q4 2023 and closing out the year with a 24 percent gain, in fact.
