2020 Ford Edge Titanium AWD Crossover Gets Better Than Ever
The 2020 Ford Edge remains unchanged for the most part as compared to the 2019 model. All three trims, including the Titanium AWD, come with an eight-inch SYNC 3 infotainment system, ten-way adjustable driver’s seat, dual-zone automatic climate control, and a highly capable reverse sensing system. The Titanium AWD receives the Elite Package, which comes with an assortment of mainly cosmetic upgrades.
We got our hands on the 2020 Ford Edge Titanium AWD and took it out for a bit of a spin, mainly to compare it to its predecessor, the 2019 Ford Edge. In this review, we’ll go over our initial impressions and why you might want to consider buying it if you have an older or maybe aging Edge.
Under the Hood
As mentioned earlier, the 2020 Ford Edge Titanium AWD remains pretty much the same under the hood, with the 2.0 liter 4 cylinder Ecoboost engine mated with Ford’s tried and true 8-speed automatic. The vehicle, similar to its predecessor, produces 250 HP and 280 lb/ft of torque. We had the All-Wheel Drive version of the vehicle, but there is also a front-wheel-drive version.
Interior Design and Space
The 2020 Ford Edge Titanium AWD offers more than enough legroom and headroom, capable of comfortably seating five adults, with adequate cargo space. The slightly bolstered seats feel comfortable. The large speedometer in the center coupled with the gauge cluster on both sides allows the driver to configure all the information via the controls on the steering wheel.
The offset color, light stitching on the door panels give it a more upscale look, and it feels good. We enjoyed using the round shift knob when test driving the vehicle, which in our experience, makes controlling the car a lot more intuitive. A notable feature is a start/stop switch for the automatic parallel parking system.
The infotainment system is Android Auto and Apple Carplay capable. Also onboard is 4G Wi-Fi hotspot and Ford’s Travelink that provides fuel prices, real-time traffic updates, sports scores, ski conditions, and movie listings.
Standard with the Titanium
The Edge Titanium is equipped with a rearview camera, leather seats, 12-speaker B&O sound, blind-spot warning, hands-free power tailgate, and remote start. Occupants on the rear get air vents and USB ports to charge their laptops or mobile devices.
You also get evasive steering assist, a voice-activated touch screen, cruise control, heated rear seats, cooled seats in the front, and a large panoramic vista roof.
Our Driving Experience
The 2020 Ford Edge Titanium AWD with its 2.0-liter engine is no race car. However, when fully loaded, it boasts pretty decent power, capable of excellent highway driving but also serves well as a daily driver.
The steering is responsive, and the crossover tends to enjoy cornering at what for this car would be high speeds. That said, you shouldn’t take this across a bend with five people on board; that’s not what it is meant to do.
In the comfort department, the seats are plush and hug the driver with good lumbar support. So, driving for an extended period is certainly comfortable. As for all other occupants, the ones in the back had no complaints, which makes it an above-average daily driver with the whole family on board.
The 2020 Ford Edge Titanium may not be a major upgrade over the 2019 version, maybe not reason enough to upgrade. However, if you have an older model, then this will make the perfect upgrade, because of all the modern extras it offers at the same price.
