There wasn’t much to look at except for the scenery or the road ahead because the interior of the Edge is lacking in wow factor, even when fitted with the premium Titanium guise. For one reason or another, Ford seems to enjoy juxtaposition, adding technology so advanced and refined it could teach crossovers twice as expensive a lesson in modernity, but then countering that with cheap plastics, an aged cabin aesthetic, and buttons that feel loose when seated in the steering wheel or dashboard.
That’s not so much of a problem of the Edge SE, which starts off at $30,950 including destination. But move up to the Titanium trim we drove and get a wireless phone charger, leather seats, and a B & O sound system and its $39,545 price starts to look pricey. All-wheel drive can be added to any trim for an extra $1,995 while a panoramic roof like the one in our tester cost $1,595. Get liberal with the options on the Titanium trim and soon you’ll be looking at a bill in the neighborhood of $45,000.
