I recently rented a 2020 Edge Titanium for a 500 mile road trip. I was pleasantly surprised by it and thought I'd share my findings:

PROS:

- Very easy to drive. I felt acclimated within a few minutes of being behind-the-wheel.
- Pre-Collision Assist with Auto Braking saved our butt when some clown decided to suddenly pull off onto the left shoulder because his load wasn't correctly secured.
- Soft & comfortable seats
- Soft touch cabin materials
- Smooth 8AT transmission.
- Quiet cabin.
- Grippy and smooth OEM Hankook tires. Got caught in a bad rain storm but the tires didn't hydroplane. Car tracked dead straight with no vibrations.
- Smooth suspension with car-like handling. Ride is tight and composed with no funny business.
- Excellent automatic wipers.
- Amazing LED headlights, although with the lows on, we got flashed twice by oncoming traffic. I read later that the IIHS dinged these lights for excessive glare.
- Cruise control did a great job maintaining speed. No slowdown then harsh revving when going up a hill.
- Excellent cargo room.
- Nice sound system.
- Kick-activated tailgate, remote start and adjustable ambient lighting are nifty features.

CONS:

- Terrible auto start/stop. Had to turn this off each time I got in the car.
- Hood flutter at highway speeds.
- Pronounced turbo lag from the 4-cyl EcoBoost. Once it catches, though, there's ample power.
- Hated the rotary dial gear shifter.
- MyFord Touch was slow to load climate control settings at startup.
- A couple of interior panels were misaligned.

This was my first time driving a modern Ford product and I was overall impressed. If an Edge rides this well, its Lincoln counterpart must ride even better.

From What Ive read Lincoln now only shares 5% of the parts between similar vehicles, so the Lincoln should be even better.

I'm guessing the hood flutter can be corrected by adjusting the hood bumper stops.

The Explorers have this hood flutter or shake on highway too. I had to stop and check that it was latched. They are making them too thin.

Ford gets kicked in the teeth around here a lot for some reason.

But Ford mass produces Millions of vehicles every year

So a few bad apples happen a long the way

That’s just the way it is

But over all

Ford makes some the best vehicles on the road

Been driving Fords for 40 plus years
And I’ll keep driving em !!!
