We traded a 2005 Ford Explorer for the Edge. Big difference in vehicles. The transmission in our Edge shifts smoothly most of the time. However, as noted in Edmunds review it is reluctant to shift going up hills. More concerning is the lurching it sometimes does when stopped at an intersection. Has anyone else experienced this? It actually startles us when it happens. Otherwise it performs ok.
Ride, Sync, Mileage is ok. Miss the 7 passenger seating of the Explorer.
The engine needs more power and the transmission definitely needs improvements.
