The 2012 Edge is one of the nicest, most comfortable SUV's I have ever driven.
When your going down the road and "floor it" it simply responds and takes off. The smoothness of the ride is indescribable. The test drive we took before purchase just did not do it justice.
We have taken several trips in it now and you never get tired because the leather seats are so comfortable.
The MyFord Touch with the redundant controls on the steering wheel.
I can change radio stations, climate and get directions by using the steering wheel controls and/ or voice commands.
After the update was done to the MyFord Touch it didn't look as "Techy". I liked that look, but maybe it was dumbed down for those not as into that type of thing.
I bought my 2012 Ford Edge around Thanksgiving of 2011 and wrote a review in January.
Wanted to update. I drove 1200 miles through Wyoming and then the mountains of Colorado recently.
While AWD Edge is rated at 25 mpg, I consistently get better mileage than that.
My first long trip right after purchase was a little better than 22 mpg. Most recent trip averaged 29.4 on one tank.
With wind, it dropped to 27+.
Driving it daily around town and home in the country, average is 24.5.
My husband, who has a heavier foot, gets the same.
My mileage is so great that I wondered if they stuck the wrong engine in it.
Gas mileage, MyFord Touch - Love the technology and have had no trouble with it.
AWD in snow, spacious cabin, comfortable for family.
Show outside temp on MyFord Touch screen - does not show after update.
Climate control is confusing for me.
Very solid build, no rattles, squeaks or sounds.
Lots of power with the V6!
Sync with MyFordTouch is really nice - spend time learning it and realize that the touch screen is not instantaneous.
V6 will eat up the gas - watch how far you press the peddle down to pass or accelerate - but the power that's there when you do is nothing short of amazing!
Love the MyFordTouch ("MFT") - worth the money to upgrade to.

Initially, I saw this 2012 Blue Edge Sport AWD in the showroom and had to have it. I have had 3 Escapes, BMW X5 and a GrandvCherokee.. The first time I test drove the Edge I immediately fell in love, twice..Handles incredibly well..amazingly comfortable and looks great. it's been 5 months since I had bought my Edge Sport and still in love..The fit and finish is flawless..plenty of room in all aspects..and the features? wow...way too many to list..I always seem to find something wrong in most things..a bad habit..but honestly? Ford nailed it on the head.....over and over with this one!
I have read some complaints about the MyFordTouch...I know there are some glitches here and there..Ford has taken a proactive approach with this..they offer quality updates that do improve the system..incredible saftely features..the seats are amazing ...the handling is great..The Edge Sport looks great!!!..
My one and only major complaint?..The edge is literally made within an hours drive from my house..and not all features are offered..I REALLY want the traffic and weather alert offered by sirius and ford to be offered in Canada..please!!
OK they told me 26 or 28 MPG on the hwy.
Not even close, 21 is the best I can get. I went to the dealer and rode around with a technician with his computer plugged into the car wile riding. He could only get 22.1 on the hwy. He said that car would never get 26 mpg.
If you don't need big gas milage the car is awesome it has more stuff than our Escalade
but it does get better milage than the Escalade
