2010 Ford Edge (continued)

Summary

2010 Ford Edge

The Ford Edge offers striking styling. The Edge is a far more efficient vehicle than a traditional SUV. Opt for all-wheel drive and you've got a great all-year-round car as well. This is a roomy five-seat vehicle with two rows of seats. We find the Ford Edge a smarter choice than a traditional, truck-based SUV, unless you are towing heavy trailers or frequently driving over rugged terrain.

NewCarTestDrive.com correspondent Kirk Bell took a test drive in the Edge in Chicago. John Rettie drove the Edge in and around San Francisco.
