It’s SUV month at Friendly Ford, and the 2017 Ford Edge is among the category’s favorites at the dealership.
The Edge has been hailed for its comfort, handling and performance. With seating for five, it touts mileage ratings from up to 21 city and 29 highway, and it is available in all-wheel drive.
Available engines for the Edge include the 2.0-liter EcoBoost I-4 with 245 horsepower; the 2.7-liter with 315 horsepower; and the 3.5-liter Ti-VCT V-6 with 280 horsepower. The Sport version comes standard with all-wheel drive.
With seating for up to five, the Edge is known for its multifaceted aspects. It’s perfect for trips to the grocery store or long trips. The vehicle boasts 73.4 cubic feet of cargo space.
Key safety factors included in the Edge include adaptive cruise control, lane-keeping and blind spot information systems, along with inflatable belts in outboard seating positions.
Also key to the popularity of the Edge are the reviews the vehicle has received.
Edmonds.com said, “You don’t have to buy a three-row crossover just to get a roomy interior. (The Edge) will fit your family of five with room to spare and still fit into your garage with ease. It also boasts the latest technology, a smooth ride and a wide range of engines.”
Edmonds also saluted the Edge’s ride quality, extensive interior space for luggage and passengers, fuel-efficient and performance-oriented engines and available tech and luxury features.
Added Car and Driver Magazine, “We like the choice of steering parameters isn’t explicitly dictated by which drive mode is selected. We also did the Sport Version twin-turbocharged V-6 engine, which develops 315 horsepower and a mighty 350 pound-feet of torque. Dipping into the throttle returns a muscular-sounding engine note and plenty of around-town zip.”
“The Edge is the best SUV money can buy,” said dealership sales consultant Grig Demirchyan. “It’s a perfect sized vehicle. There’s plenty of room in the Edge, and it has excellent power.”
