2017 Ford Edge For Sale in Sounthern California
The Edge was totally redesigned for the 2015 model year, which saw it become noticeably more athletic and that theme applies equally as strongly to both its styling and its overall performance. The 2017 Ford Edge still retains the unmistakable silhouette of an SUV, but it's moving increasingly closer to being a more premium offering and avoids falling into the trap of becoming overtly rugged or macho. The exterior is now tastefully sporty, which means the Edge is now getting right up there with the very best models even German rival brands have to offer. The Edge Sport builds even further on the theme with its blacked-out details that really emphasize those sporty credentials.
This latest 2017 Ford Edge is now the third model year of the second-generation of this extremely attractive midsize crossover SUV that's certainly selling in enough numbers to keep the company's investors mighty happy right now. It's probably not too surprising then, considering its commercial success, the Edge has now become the most recent of Ford's North American models to go truly global after only initially being offered here America. After entering the market here in 2006 as a 2007 model year, this extremely successful crossover is now following the legendary Mustang by being officially sold by Ford dealers in all the company's major markets around the world. In fact, it's even now being offered in those markets where they insist on driving on the wrong side of the road.
It's a similar story with the inside of the 2017 Ford Edge, which now boasts some of the best trims and materials to be seen and felt anywhere in the midsize crossover segment, and where some of the very best styling cues from the Focus and the Escape are evident in the dash layout.
We now have three engines and four trim levels to select from in the 2017 Ford Edge. The trims begin with the base SE model, and from there it goes to the SEL and Titanium before the fabulous Edge Sport completes the lineup.
The SE, SEL and Titanium trims come standard with an impressive 2.0-litre EcoBoost turbo that develops 245 horsepower and 275 lb.-ft. of torque, and a six-speed automatic transmission is used in all variants to send the power to your choice of the front or all four wheels. The SEL and Titanium trims can be upgraded to an optional normally aspirated 3.5-litre Ti-VCT V-6, which then gets you 280 horsepower and 250 lb.-ft. of torque. The Edge lineup's most powerful unit is reserved for the top-specification Edge Sport model, which is 2.7-liter EcoBoost that develops 315 horsepower and a more-than capable 350 lb.-ft. of torque.
The Edge now delivers the kind of fuel economy only found with smaller, less versatile midsize sedans until quite recently. The 2.0-litre EcoBoost in its front-wheel drive form can get EPA-estimated fuel economy ratings of 21 mpg in the city, 29 mpg on the highway and 24 mpg combined. But the all-wheel drive Edge Sport model with its powerful V-6 is no gas-guzzler either, as that one is rated as good as 17 mpg in the city, 24 mpg on the highway and 20 mpg combined.
Our current love of all things crossover and SUV means there are lots to select from right now, but there's can’t be too many checking all the boxes quite as well as the 2017 Ford Edge currently does.
