2009 Ford Edge vs. Its Competition

2009 Ford Edge SE
Martin Padgett Martin Padgett Editorial Director

Those who want some measure of off-road ability might fare better with a truck-based vehicle like the Explorer.

Ford doesn't suggest that the 2009 Ford Edge is intended for off-roading, though with the available all-wheel drive, it should be fine with snow and mud.

Quick Specs
Provided you don’t mind the lack of a third-row seat, the 2009 Ford Edge stands out in a crowded field as thoroughly competent, well rounded, and fashionable.
The 2009 Nissan Murano combines good handling and a recognizable style with a much more sophisticated interior.
The 2009 Toyota Venza adds another flavor to the crossover melting pot, but it's a mild one.
Hyundai’s most expensive model may not quite be a Lexus, but it’s impressive in its own right.
The 2008 Mazda CX-9 may be the best-driving full-size seven-passenger crossover out there. It is certainly one of the best looking and appointed.
The 2008 Subaru Tribeca is mainstream now, in style and performance.
