Ford Edge vs Competition

The Ford Edge vs. The Competition

There are SUVs and then there is the Ford Edge. Earning the 2018 Best Car for the Money Award, and the 2018 Best Car for Families Award from U.S. News & World Report, the Ford Edge stands out from its competition thanks to its high levels of style, performance, interior comforts, and overall value.
