GIVE YOURSELF AN EDGE: THE 2017 FORD EDGE CUV IN CARMAN, MB

Continuously gaining appeal since its introduction, the Edge has already become one of Ford’s most popular vehicles. Even car buyers who weren’t necessarily considering a Ford are being won over by this exceptional crossover utility vehicle. Fresh off its first major redesign, the 2017 Ford Edge is already making it quite clear that we haven’t yet seen the best of what this incredible vehicle has to offer.

The Edge is a little bit longer and a little bit taller than its competition, without sacrificing the smaller size that makes it both practical and extremely agile. The 2017 Ford Edge lets you stretch out, with more leg room for both the front and rear passenger seats. Combined with an extra inch in head clearance, the Edge can accommodate a wide range of body types. This means truly exceptional comfort no matter where you roam. The Edge also gives all your gear a place to call home, with an impressive 1,111 L cargo area. With the rear seats folded flat, the carrying capacity skyrockets to a cavernous 2,078 L of storage! Add smart turbocharged engines, a few stylish accents for the aficionado, and a deluge of tech features, and this incredible crossover might just make it to the top of your must-drive list!

If you want to audition the 2017 Ford Edge for a job as your main source of transportation, come and visit Carman Ford. We carry plenty of new Edge models, but we also have a great selection of top-condition used models from recent years.

2017 FORD EDGE ENGINES & TOWING

The 2017 Ford Edge offers three distinct and dynamic engines. The standard 2.0L 4-cylinder engine starts you off at a commendable 245 horsepower and 275 lb-ft of torque, while the available 3.5L V6 is a great choice for those who prefer a few more horses under the hood. Those seeking even greater performance thrills will love the turbocharged 2.7L V6. It comes available with the Sport model that gives an impressive 315 horsepower. Each powertrain operates on a 6-speed automatic transmission with steering-wheel-mounted paddle shifters. Want great staying power? All-wheel drive is available for those in snowy conditions. For even greater versatility, a properly equipped AWD Ford Edge is rated to tow up to 1,587 kg (3,500 lbs).

2017 FORD EDGE TECHNOLOGY

From the entry-level SE all the way up to the opulent Titanium and Sport trims, each 2017 Ford Edge is a technological marvel. One of the biggest perks is Ford’s available adaptive steering system, which customizes responsiveness and driver effort at both low speeds (parking) and high speeds (highway turning/weaving). That’s if you even want to drive at low speeds: parallel park assist automatically parks your Edge by itself, and can even do other tricky parking maneuvers like garage parking thanks to its 180-degree front parking camera. The available hands-free rear liftgate that opens with a wave of your foot, heated steering wheel, and massive 8-inch media touchscreen are just some of the other great things to look for in the 2017 Ford Edge.

2017 FORD EDGE SAFETY

Let’s take a longer look at some of the available intelligent active safety features that make Ford models some of the most technologically advanced vehicles on the roads today. The rear-view camera that comes standard across all trims also takes over as a blind spot monitor for your right side when your turn signal becomes engaged. Adaptive cruise control and forward collision warning with automatic braking keep you at a safe distance from vehicles up ahead, while the rear cross-traffic alert gives you an extra set of eyes for the hazards lurking behind. Front, back, and side, surround yourself with superior protection in the Ford Edge.
