The crossover SUV market is filled with strong competitors. The Edge scores some hits with its stylish design and open-feeling cabin. Unfortunately, it doesn't drive as much like a car as its appearance would have you believe.
A redesigned Ford Escape SUV, which the company promises will have an improved ride and handling compared to the current Escape, is due out in the next few months. It will be interesting to see how the new Escape compares with the Edge. Ironically, for those who really want an SUV that acts like a car, the truck-shaped Escape could end up being the better choice.
