The 2010 Ford Edge ranks 15 out of 30 Affordable Midsize SUVs. This ranking is based on our analysis of 54 published reviews and test drives of the Ford Edge, and our analysis of reliability and safety data.

Reviewers praise the Ford Edge for its sharp styling, comfortable cabin and solid performance - but they still say the aging SUV is in dire need of an update. However, they'll have to wait a bit longer, since the 2010 model is mostly unchanged from 2009.

Edmunds notes that the Edge "has been standing idly by for the past couple years as many of its Ford siblings have received a slew of much-needed updates and upgrades. The Edge's name can't be called soon enough, because a few tweaks here and there could dramatically improve this midsize crossover SUV's standing in an increasingly competitive segment." Among the Edge's downsides are somewhat poor interior quality and a base price that can quickly skyrocket with options. The Edge also lacks a third-row seat. For more seating space, consider the GMC Acadia. For high interior quality, check out the Nissan Murano or Toyota Venza.

Despite the fact that it hasn't been redesigned since its 2006 introduction, the Edge is one of Ford's top-selling vehicles. It's also a proven award winner. The 2007 model was named as one of AAA and Parents magazine's "Best Cars for Families" and received the "Urban Truck of the Year" award from On Wheels, Inc. It was also a top-ten finisher in Motor Trend's "Sport/Utility of the Year" testing.

The 2010 Edge is available in three trims: the base SE, SEL, Limited, and all-new Sport. It's available in front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive. Be sure to check for current Ford deals that may be available on a new Edge. Since the 2010 model is nearly identical to the 2009 Edge, this review uses data from both model years.- usnews.rankingsandreviews
