2020-2024 Ford Edge Among Best Used Choices For Teens

Earlier this month, the very last Ford Edge produced rolled off the assembly line at the Oakville Assembly plant in Canada, which will soon be retooled for the production of future EV models. That marked the end of an era for the popular crossover, which existed between the 2007-2024 model years, during which The Blue Oval built 2,609,545 total units. However, those looking for a solid used vehicle will be happy to know that the 2020-2024 Ford Edge, specifically, is still among the very best choices for teens.

That is, according to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) and Consumer Reports, which have named the 2020-2024 Ford Edge as one of those organizations’ best choices for teenagers. The Ford Edge ranked among the top mid-size used crossovers for teens thanks to its average price tag of $16,700, as well as its superior safety and crash test ratings from the IIHS.

To make the cut, these top picks must have earned at least a rating of “good” in the IIHS’ original moderate overlap front, original side, roof strength, and head restraint tests, as well as an acceptable or good rating in the driver-side small overlap test. These vehicles must also come with standard automatic emergency braking systems that earn an advanced or superior rating from IIHS in its original vehicle-to-vehicle front crash prevention test, as well as above average emergency handling, dry braking, and reliability scores from Consumer Reports.

Of course, the Ford Edge is used to earning such accolades, even as it rides off into the proverbial sunset. In fact, the crossover has previously been named as one of the best used vehicle values on the market by iSeeCars, as well as one of the best models with a price tag of under $40k and among the top five-year-old used vehicles by Consumer Reports, too.

    How many teenagers would want to drive one, however? The only advantage I see is room for friends, which may not be a good thing.

    My 13-year-old commented just the other day that he’s hoping we’ll buy my wife’s 2024 Edge when the lease is up so he can inherit it. He didn’t express any interest in the 2022 Explorer I recently turned in even though it had even more room for friends. Seems there may be other advantages.
