Finding cheap car insurance for a Ford Edge in Oregon hinges on a pretty complex algorithm that uses a lot of factors such as whether you are married or single, your residence address, and driving citations. Drivers pay on average $1,064 per year to insure their Edge, but that amount is an estimate based on a 30-year-old married female driver with full coverage and $100 deductibles.
It’s highly likely you are not 30 years old and maybe not even female, you might be single instead of married, and maybe you want different deductibles. Having even a minor difference in rating factors or requested coverage amount can make a large difference in the price of a policy.
The different assumptions illustrate why the only real way to find cheap car insurance rates for your Ford is to compare rates from as many companies as possible. To cut your rates now, get a free quote and you can get rates from some of the cheapest companies that sell coverage in Oregon.

How accidents and tickets impact rates
The ideal way to score affordable car insurance rates for an Edge is to drive attentively and avoid accidents and traffic citations. The information below shows how traffic citations and at-fault collisions can influence auto insurance costs for different ages of insureds. The data is based on a married male driver, full physical damage coverage, $1,000 deductibles, and no discounts are applied.
The data charted above shows the average cost of a car insurance policy in Oregon per year with no violations or accidents is $1,255. Add in two speeding tickets and the average cost hikes up to $1,717, an increase of $462 each year. Now get one accident along with the two speeding tickets and the yearly cost of car insurance for a Ford Edge jumps again to an average of $2,189. That’s an increase of $934, or $78 per month, just for not driving safely!
