    Both reported 20 mpg (actual/mixed) on their Ford Edge/Lincoln MKX AWD test vehicles. A far cry from the 15 that Motor Trend observed.
  • I have 1200 miles on my front wheel drive model and am averaging 21.4 mpg. Thats about 65% city driving.

    100% City driving in a hilly area(Vancouver/Burnaby, BC, Canada) gives me a 18.9L/100KM 12.45MPG!!! Most worst MPG ever. Odo 1500KM. :confuse: :confuse:
    Mine is a SEL+ AWD.

    12.45 mpg?

    I'll stick with my Navigator. Gets better than that and I could put the Edge in the back.

    You're ignoring the others that are getting 20 mpg.

    20mpg in City is kinda like a dream to me, since I came from the 2006 ATX Mazda 3 Sports GT, which has a 2.3L engine and gas consumption was 12~13L/100KM or 19mpg.
    BTW: For 40% HWY 60% City I got 14.7L/100KM or 16MPG; 100% HWY is 23.5mpg.

    Just leased a SEL+ with Vista roof, 17" wheels, FWD, trailer tow package. 500 miles on the clock in the past week, virtually all in town, AC on 50% of the time. Computer says 17.9 MPG so far.

    Ford Edge SEL PLUS FWD, Vista Roof, 18 inch wheels, first 310 miles at 100% city 100% AC on, 17.4 MPG. Pretty good considering I've been hot rodding quite a bit.

    Excellent point. With half a tank run thru after reset mileage is showing at 20.1 in essentially all intown / suburban traffic.

    SEL+awd. Only had it one day. So far I'm showing 20mpg in mixed traffic. A lot better than the 12mpg I was getting with my Hemi Ram. Not going to hear me complaining :shades:

    Took the Edge on a trip to Oklahoma City for the Big12 baseball tournament. Racked up 1260 miles total. About 95% was interstate at speeds of 80-85MPH sometimes more. Got 23MPG total for the whole trip including an hour or two idling through a drive thru zoo south of OKC. At several points on the interstate the computer was saying 26 MPG or better but mostly stayed above 24. I am happy with the MPG I am getting and I am extremely impressed at how it handles, accelerates, and rides. Rode up with wife and 2 other people. No complaints about the car from anyone and all of the luggage fit in the back even with the rear seats reclined quite a ways. Probably the best vehicle I have owned beating out Hummer H3, F-150, Explorer, Grand Prix GTP, VW Passat.

    Just rented an Edge from Hertz for 8 days. It was an SEL AWD model and after 890 miles I bought 69 gallons of gas ! thats 12.9 miles to the gallon. This was 95% hwy driving with about 100 lb load in back and 2 people in front, with AC all the time in hot weather. Whats up with this MPG?

    The AWD SEL Edge fuel economy rating is 17/24. Actual fuel economy may vary, as demonstrated with the postings here, and there are several factors that can affect them. With that said, the mileage you're reporting on that rental is unusually low. If you were the vehicle's owner, I'd recommend that the vehicle be taken to the dealership for testing. :)

    But you don't know how much was in there to start with, do you? It probably wasn't full.

    We have 1200 miles on our Edge FWD. On a recent 600 mile trip with some mountain and city driving (10%) we got 24.3 MPG. The computer was reading around 24 but actual economy was a little better with 90% of the driving 75 to 80 mph.
