Powered by a choice of three engines, all of which are paired to a six-speed automatic transmissions, each Edge model is capable is responsive and relatively good on gas. This Ford crossover is even capable of towing that pontoon boat or pop-up camper.
While we could go on and on about this award-winning family vehicle, we took the liberty of gathering a few thoughts from the experts.
As the experts at Edmunds mention, “the Edge is a great choice if you want something modern and comfortable. With a controlled, carlike character the Edge feels like a raised sedan, with a composed ride, direct steering and little body lean by crossover standards when going around turns. Even large bumps are soaked up by the forgiving suspension. We're also impressed with the Edge's low levels of wind and road noise. If you really want power, the turbocharged 2.7L V6 engine is the way to go, delivering a serious wallop when your right foot asks for it. It sounds pretty cool, too.”
According to Car Connection Editorial Director Marty Padgett, the Edge also handles better than most models in its class. “It's precise and responsive, without feeling too edgy. It has the relatively precise, reassuring feel that crossovers should have, and takes a set into corners without fuss. The Edge also frames its crossover-SUV body in clean, almost austere lines with a warmer interior than its sheet metal suggests.”
Ranked near the top of US News & World Report’s top midsize SUV’s, the 2017 Ford Edge is also this publication’s winner of the 2017 Best Two-Row SUV for Families award. “Due to its combination of space, available family-friendly features and positive reviews from professional automotive writers in its class,” the Edge is also one of the safest on the market.
As Padgett also reminds us, the Edge has also produced “top-tier results in all but the IIHS small-overlap frontal test. It has a special airbag mounted in the glovebox frame, to help protect passenger knees, and available rear-seat inflatable seat belts. Bluetooth and a rearview camera are standard across the board, while available safety features include LED headlamps, forward-collision warnings, parking assist with perpendicular parking now factored in, and rear-seat inflatable seat belts.”
Along with comfort, safety and power the Edge is also fun. With an available Panoramic Vista Roof and a rear fixed skylight, sunny drives have never been so much fun. This crossover event includes available ambient lighting, that allows you can set the mood for your drive with the programmable seven-color ambient light feature.
