A weak base engine is noted as one of the Hyundai Santa Fe’s most critical faults, and up against the Edge the disadvantage is quite apparent. In fact, even the most powerful version of the 2021 Santa Fe falls short of the most basic Ford Edge model. Designed for the thrill-seekers of the world, the Edge ST administers a healthy dose of adrenaline with its 335-horsepower turbo V6 engine and standard all-wheel drive – enough to blow rivaling crossovers out of the water.
The Edge may be every bit as brawny as your dream SUV, but it doesn't forego cabin quality in the process. In fact, the interior of the 2021 Ford Edge is described as comfortable, quiet, and well-equipped. Model year 2021 brings more to love with a new standard 12-inch SYNC® 4A central touchscreen display, which features cloud connectivity with conversational voice recognition.
