Crash-test scores for the 2014 Ford Edge aren't anywhere near class-leading; but its safety set is comprehensive.

The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety gives the Edge top 'good' scores in all major categories (it hasn't yet been tested in the new small overlap frontal test, however); although in federal testing its four-star overall rating and three-star frontal rating are far from segment-leading.

Among the standard features are full-length curtain airbags and stability control with integral hill-start assist, which keeps the Edge from rolling backward at stops. The stability system also factors in trailer sway control, adapted from Ford's F-150 pickup trucks to correct for the wagging induced by towed loads.

You won't find the inflatable rear seat belts that Ford is offering in the larger Explorer, but there's plenty else here. Ford does offer a blind-spot monitor system, which flashes a light on the outside mirrors when a car in in the adjacent lane out of sight; cross-traffic alert can sense traffic approaching from the side when backing the car out of a parking space. Adaptive cruise control and collision warning are options; they use radar sensors to figure the distance to the car ahead and to detect imminent collisions.


You’ll be hard-pressed to find a any crossover with a non-luxury badge that packs in as much safety technology as the 2015 Ford Edge.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
