What Ford has to offer in its 2015 Edge model may raise browses from a lot of us. Who would want a compact cross-over with two rows of seats anyway now that we have another option of the trending 3-row minivan segment? However, Ford begs to differ and what we have here might open your eyes into acquiring what the legendary carmaker has to offer.
Interior and Exterior
Edge is longer by 3.9 inches compared to its predecessor and is 23 lbs. lighter, too. You get huge front doors and inside, leather seats with microfiber inserts await the passengers. The dashboard and center console are endowed with different keys for climate control, infotainment and navigational keys, all organized in neat array.
Engine, Transmission and Price
Shedding off the Mazda platform, Ford Edge Sport is endowed with a brand new psyche for 2015. Do not expect something avant-garde but at least, it retains the elegance as expected from a vehicle bearing the Ford emblem. It can sprint from 0-60 mph within 5.6 seconds which is kind of surprising considering its weight. Huge thanks for the impressive 2.7L twin-turbo V6 for a heart that can even pump up 315 of horse power.
Under the category of two-row midsize crossovers and SUV’s, it ranks among the beasts in the likes of Jeep Grand Cherokee, Volkswagen Touareg and Nissan Murano. It comes highly recommended for anyone who wants to acquire a family vehicle with an engine in perfect blend with peace, suave and power.
