Unlike most of its similar-size competitors, the 2008 Ford Edge doesn't have an available third row of seating.
The slight interior improvements and new SYNC system introduced on the '08 Edge help make the Ford more competitive against top peers such as the Highlander.
Relative to the Edge, the Tribeca and CX-9 are a little sportier on the road, with slightly firmer suspension setting and crisper handling, while the Highlander and Veracruz have styling that's less exciting and possibly less offensive.
Premium fuel is recommended for several of the Edge's competitors, but cheaper 87-octane fuel is fine for the Edge.
The Mazda CX-9 is a rival to the Edge, which has a slightly sportier character, but the two share mechanical underpinnings.
