2023 Ford Edge Titanium Review
The Ford Edge shows that a vehicle can get popular among the masses if it is good. It is a leader in the midsize crossover class thanks to its functionality and reliability, coupled with high performance and exciting driving dynamics.
The Edge Titanium is considered to be the most luxurious of all its trim levels, even though it is not at the top of the trim hierarchy. It is one of the most popular trim levels associated with the Edge as it is known to combine luxury, performance, and dependability.
Its latest model – the 2023 Edge Titanium – is out and about, and the following is its review:
The 2023 Edge belongs to the second generation of the Ford Edge that was launched back in 2015 and facelifted in 2019. It features five trim levels, with the Titanium being the second highest on the hierarchy. A single powertrain is offered.
But despite the Titanium’s placing, it is still the most luxurious in the lineup. This is because it offers the finest materials in its cabin and the most standard tech, and because the top model – the ST – loses some features to have a better weight distribution.
As far as updates are concerned, there are none for this year on the Edge Titanium specifically.
Powertrain and Numbers
The 2023 Edge Titanium comes with a 2-liter turbocharged engine which makes 250 hp and 280 lb-ft. It sends this to an all-wheel drive system for the best power distribution and traction using an 8-speed automatic transmission.
Since this is a medium-sized, but powerful crossover, you can expect it to go fast when you put your foot down. It will accelerate from 0 to 62 mph in just about 6.8 seconds. The towing capacity is enough for most, maxing out at 3500 lbs. The maximum payload capacity is 650 lbs.
But how does this capability affect the fuel economy? Well, the 2023 Edge Titanium can do up to 21 mpg in the city and 28 mpg on the highway. These are respectable numbers especially since all-wheel drive is standard.
Interior and Technology
The 2023 Edge Titanium has an appealing and user-friendly cabin as it not only offers an attractive aesthetic but also prioritizes ergonomics. It can seat up to five in a spacious and comfortable environment, surrounded by high quality materials.
The new Edge Titanium 2023 is one of the very best in its segment when it comes to trunk space and cubby storage. If you ever need more space, you can always fold down the second row of seats. You also get a convenient set of storage compartments beneath the loading floor.
If you’re looking for something smaller, the compact 2023 Ford Escape will suit you better.
Since the Edge Titanium is the most luxurious trim, it impresses with a wealth of standard features across its trims. You get a leather-wrapped steering wheel and ActiveX-trimmed sport bucket seats. Ebony and Medium Soft Ceramic colors are offered.
The tech includes dual-zone climate control, push-button ignition, keyless entry, remote start, heating on the steering wheel, and an auto-dimming rearview mirror. There’s a hands-free foot-activated and powered liftgate in order to make your shopping sprees easier.
For infotainment, there’s a 12-inch touchscreen, a premium 12-speaker sound system tuned by B&O, and Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. There are USB ports and powerpoints for connectivity, a wireless charger for your phone, and 4G Wifi hotspot capabilities.
In the safety department, you are treated to goodies such as automated emergency braking, rear parking sensors, blind-spot monitoring (w/rear cross-traffic alerts), a rearview camera, and lane-departure warning (w/lane-keeping assist).
Despite the standard features being so many, the options list is massive. You can add stuff such as cooled front seats, heated rear seats, satellite navigation, adaptive cruise control, parking assist systems, and a 180-degree camera.
Exterior and Driving
The 2023 Edge Titanium is a stylish vehicle with features such as bi-LED headlamps and LED fog lamps, and body-colored exterior mirror caps, door handles, and rear spoiler. You also get 19-inch aluminum wheels that complement everything very well.
The following are the exterior colors that are available on the 2023 Edge Titanium:
- Agate Black Metallic
- Atlas Blue Metallic
- Stone Blue Metallic
- Carbonized Gray Metallic
- Forged Green Metallic
- Burgundy Velvet Metallic Tinted Clearcoat
- Rapid Red Metallic Tinted Clearcoat
- Iconic Silver Metallic
- Star White Metallic Tri-Coat
The Edge Titanium receives praise from all the critics and testers who have driven it. This is because it is quick but more importantly, it is fun to drive. You can see for yourself by throwing it in a corner. But despite its sportiness, the cabin continues to be serene and quiet.
Reliability and Warranty
The 2022 Ford Edge gets a reliability rating of 76 out of 100 from JD Power, putting it in the average spot for the year. According to Consumer Reports, the 2023 Edge models will be more reliable than their peers. The reviews from its buyers are also positive in terms of dependability.
Along with these stamps of reliability, the 2023 Edge Titanium will also come with two warranties offered by Ford. There’s a limited one for 3 years/36k miles, and there’s another warranty for the powertrain components of 5 years/60k miles.
The 2023 Ford Edge Titanium is a must-have if you are seeking a crossover vehicle that is quick, powerful, and great at towing, but doesn’t give up on fuel efficiency. The driving dynamics are more than wonderful and it drives better than many sedans.
The Edge Titanium looks great inside and out and is built to be luxurious and comfortable. There’s a lot of tech offered here as standard. It is very generous when it comes to safety and convenience tech, offering you the very best of everything. The reliability is also decent.
