Ford Edge Real Gas Mileage: Pros
YearBody/PowertrainComment
2011 4dr SUV 285-horsepower 3.5L V6
6-speed shiftable automatic FWD
The V6 gets good fuel economy. I have had the Edge for 13 months and have a overall average of 22 mpg. I am able to obtain the 27 mpg on the highway at 70 mph, more than that it does start to drop. Does not need premium gasoline. see full Ford Edge review
2008 4dr SUV 265-horsepower 3.5L V6
6-speed automatic FWD
Decent economy considering size of vehicle and weight. see full Ford Edge review
2008 4dr SUV 265-horsepower 3.5L V6

Better than a V8 Aviator see full Ford Edge review
2007 4dr SUV 265-horsepower 3.5L V6
6-speed automatic FWD
Considering this is an SUV/Crossover... the gas mileage is really good. I am a fast driver who tests the limits of my vehicle and I still average 18 mpg in the city and have had up to 25-26 mpg during long road trips (If I keep my lead foot in check). see full Ford Edge review

It is only average overall. A hybrid or better still a hydrogen fuel cell version would be better. see full Ford Edge review
2007 4dr SUV 265-horsepower 3.5L V6
6-speed automatic AWD
Can be low in stop and go traffic, does well on highways up to 70mph, drops off a bit quickly after that see full Ford Edge review

2010 4dr SUV 262-horsepower 3.5L V6

1000 miles of ownership so far, 21-22 mpg in light suburb and highway driving, 24-25 mpg on 500 mile trip (fuel economy measured by calculating miles driven divided by gallons of fuel purchased). see full Ford Flex review
2010 4dr SUV 262-horsepower 3.5L V6

I am currently averaging 20 MPG overall with heavy highway use. For the size of vehicle I think that is rather reasonable. see full Ford Flex review

Very good for a 4500 lb vehicle. see full Ford Flex review
