The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating

8.6
TCC’s Bottom Line
An exceptionally comfortable interior, great connectivity, and a 30-mpg turbo model succeed in elevating the 2014 Ford Edge above the crossover clutter. The 2014 Ford Explorer does build on its heritage, but on-road fluency and passenger comfort are clearly at center stage.
