Test Driver Ratings & Comments

Acceleration commentsWhile the Edge feels heavy from a standstill, the gearing obviously helps it get off the line smartly. Gearshifts at wide-open throttle are quick, but the engine sounds rather unhappy in the upper revs. Shifting occurs before the 6700-rpm redline.
Braking ratingPoor
Braking commentsWhoa, Nelly! The pedal feels firm and linear, however, the Edge needs bigger and/or better brakes. At over 150 feet to stop from 60 mph, the Edge is in Hummer H2 territory when it finally comes to a stop.
Handling ratingGood
Handling commentsIn the skid pad, I couldn't detect any shifting of engine power fore/aft in the AWD system. Ultimately, understeer and non-defeat stability control limits performance. In the slalom, the same electronic limits keep the Edge from performing better. Just as the suspension begins working hard, the roll stability system begins applying brakes selectively. Still, it feels stable and relatively entertaining with appropriately weighted steering and good vehicle balance.
