It seems most of everyone here, has an Edge, I was looking for an Edge, 2010 or newer when I found my MKX for less? Why did you go for the Edge instead of the MKX? No harm done, was just wondering?

I'll answer the converse of this question.

 

I selected my 2012 MKX because factory trailer tow was offered with its standard 3.7 powertrain, whereas factory trailer tow was not available on the Edge Sport, the only Edge model offering the 3.7 powertrain.

 

Good luck!

I got the 2007 MKX because it was a good deal at my local car dealer. Fully loaded at a price less than some of the newer Edges I was looking at.

I was looking to replace my '98 Explorer with 213k miles and wanted to stay with Ford or Lincoln.  Always got great service from FoMoCo products.  I saw a low miles '11 Edge Limited AWD in Tux Black available and bought it.  I would have gone with an MKX if had one been available equipped that way I wanted when I was looking.   The Edge happened to be in the right place at the right time.

I was going for a new 2013 Taurus Limited when I found my 6 months old ~2k miles MKX for less price. More luxurious with more features & had 6 months longer warranty balance. It was a great deal.

I bought my 13 MKX (3 hours north almost 2 years ago), off...cars.com...looked for months for an Edge. The ones I found were in not so good shape, broke door panel, dents, things just not working right for the same money as an MKX. Now that I have an MKX and looked at all the Edge's, The interior in the Edge seems' a little sub standard compared to the MKX. I'm not putting down the Edge by any means. Just looked at a 17 and it was BAD ASS!

I was just wondering your thoughts on the MKX vs the Edge? 

The reason is.... I'm thinking about trading in and want to know your thoughts.

The Edge is what it is, and the MKX is what it is.  In general, they are pretty much the same vehicle with the MKX being a bit more luxurious, offering more niceties (like a GLOVEBOX LIGHT, <R U LISTENING, FORD?>) and the 3.7L engine as standard that only comes in the Edge Sport.  All that for more money.  If one thinks that the extra $$ provides extra value, then buy the MKX.  If not, buy a Ford.  I personally don't think you could go wrong with either one.  I bought the Edge because it was the trim level I was looking for (Limited AWD 301a), in the color I was looking for (Tux Black), at the price I was looking for, and it was at the Lexus dealer that I had previously bought 3 Lexus' at (my wife's!) so I knew that the dealership experience would be upscale (it was.)  If a similarly equipped, priced, and color MKX had been available at that dealership I would have bought it.  I guess I am being verbose in saying whether you buy or trade, get what you can comfortably afford and what you want.

Not really a biggie, but one other goodie
is, at the dealer I get treated better and a free car wash after every service call. Also offered a loaner whenever they need to keep the car all day or over overnight. (Local dealer both is a Ford and Lincoln dealer).

Oh hi,

 

RE:  (like a GLOVEBOX LIGHT, <R U LISTENING, FORD?>)

My 2017 Edge Sport has a glove box light, and center console light, and a light in the "pass through hole" of the console:-)

 

I almost got the 2017 MKX, tempted by the 2 years maintenance, though I tend to do all my own anyway. I bought off the lot, and  the Edge Sport was on the lot...though I would really like the MKX sound system!

Yes, I am in the process of retro'ing an OEM glove box light with OEM electricals into my '11 Edge.  I know there are other ways to light up the cabin and glove box, but I just LIKE a glove compartment light.

I've had a 2010 Edge, 2011 Edge and a 2014 MKX.  If the extra green isn't a factor I would always go for the MKX.  I know they're the same basic vehicle but, in my opinion, the MKX looks better, has better fit & finish and is way way more luxurious inside.
