2015 Ford Edge Earns Five-Star Safety Rating From Federal Government


WASHINGTON — The all-new 2015 Ford Edge midsize SUV earned the top five-star safety rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).

The 2015 Edge, which is on sale now at Ford dealerships, received five stars in the front and side crash tests and four stars in the rollover crash test.

The rating applies to front-wheel-drive and all-wheel-drive versions of the Edge.

In comparison, the 2014 Ford Edge received a four-star overall safety rating from NHTSA.

Standard safety equipment on the 2015 Edge includes antilock brakes, traction control, stability control, rearview camera and seven airbags, including a driver's knee airbag. Optional safety equipment includes inflatable rear seatbelts, a blind-spot information system and rear cross-traffic alert.

The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety has posted partial ratings on the 2015 Edge.

The Edge scored "Good" ratings in the moderate front overlap and side crash tests. In the moderate front overlap test, the forces are similar to those that would result from a frontal offset crash between two vehicles of the same weight, each going just under 40 mph.

Key competitors to the Ford Edge include the Hyundai Santa Fe Sport, Nissan Murano and Toyota Venza.

Edmunds says: Car shoppers should note that the 2015 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport and Toyota Venza also earned the top five-star safety rating from NHTSA. The 2015 Nissan Murano earned a four-star safety rating.
