Quality, Cost-Effective Roof Rack Recommendation for a 2016 Ford Edge


We are looking to add a roof rack to my 2016 Ford Edge. My car has nothing on top of it. The dealership is quoting a lot of money for just the parts. I found a thread with Yakima round bars. If we bought these parts, are they easy to install? Will they hold up as well as the ones from the dealership?


Expert Reply:

The Yakima round crossbar system is decent but sometimes it can be hard to mount accessories and get them to stay still, plus they don't help with wind noise and drag.

For your application I recommend checking out the Yakima CoreBar roof rack because it has the nice aero-style crossbars but sits at a lower price-point since these aren't the high-end aluminum bars. Here are the parts you'll need for the naked roof of your 2016 Ford Edge:

60" CoreBar Crossbars - # Y00422
BaseLine Towers - # Y28TR
BaseClips - # Y06102 and # Y06139
Lock Core Kit - # Y07204 (optional)

Attached is a review video of this roof rack kit on a 2015 Ford Edge. If you let me know what you plan on using the roof rack for I'dbe more than happy to make some recommendations for you!
