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 normally hadn’t considered Ford in the past are now being won over by this exceptional crossover utility vehicle. Fresh off its first major redesign last year, this year’s 2017 Ford Edge is already making it quite clear that we hadn’t even come close to seeing the best from this up and comer.
The Edge is a little bit longer, a little bit taller than it competition; without sacrificing the smaller size that made it both practical and extremely agile. The 2017 Ford Edge has more leg room for both the front and rear passenger seats; combined with an extra inch in head clearance, this means that the Edge can accommodate a broad range of body types. Often, this means the difference between total comfort and tense neck muscles or cramped legs. Even without the 2078 litres of storage with the rear seats folded flat, the Edge offers more than most midsize sedans have in their trunks with an impressive 1111 litres. Add smart turbocharged engines, a few stylish accents for the aficionado, and a glut of tech features, and this new crossover might just top your list of vehicles to test drive.
If you want to audition the 2017 Ford Edge for a job as your main source of transportation, come and visit our Carman Ford dealership. We carry plenty of new Edge models, but we also have plenty of top-condition used models from recent model years.
2017 FORD EDGE ENGINES & TOWING
The 2017 Ford Edge offers three distinct and dynamic engines. The standard 2.0L 4-cylinder engine under most hoods starts you off at a commendable 245 horsepower and 275 lb-ft of torque, while an available 3.5L V6 is available for those who prefer a few more horses behind their accelerations. Those seeking even greater performance thrills will love the turbocharged 2.7L V6 that’s available with the Sport model that gives an impressive 315 horsepower. Each powertrain operates with a 6-speed automatic transmission with steering-wheel-mounted paddle shifters, and 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 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 promises to be a technological step up from your current vehicle. One of the biggest perks comes from 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 lift-gate that opens with a wave of your foot, heated steering wheel, and massive 8-inch media touchscreen are just three other things to look for in the 2017 Ford Edge.
2017 FORD EDGE SAFETY
While we await the release of the crash ratings for the redesigned Ford Edge, we are given an opportunity to take a longer look at some of the available advanced active safety features that make Ford models some of the most technologically advanced vehicles available today. The rearview 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, you’re covered all around in the 2017 Ford Edge.
