The 2017 Ford Edge slots into the brand’s SUV lineup above the Escape and below the Explorer. It seats five, but with a little more flair and style than its younger sibling. It’s shoulders are broad and aggressive, and its overall design is more fluid than past models. The interior is spacious and stylish. Most importantly, the Edge is confident on the road. The engine lineup is powerful, without consuming too much fuel. And the recommended (at least on Saskatchewan roads) available Intelligent All-Wheel Drive constantly monitors road conditions to deliver power to individual wheels. But one of the Edge’s greatest selling features is its impressive dedication to safety.
The 2017 Ford Edge comes with a 5-Star Safety Rating from the NHTSA. Those ratings involve things like safety in a variety of forward and side crash safety scenarios. Consequently, driving a five-star vehicle means that you have the best chance of surviving a dangerous collision. Additionally, for 2017, Ford has given Edge drivers access to a suite of advanced safety features. The list of available safety technology includes:
The Edge SE is the base model. It’s equipped with a standard Twin-Scroll 2.0L EcoBoost with Start/Stop technology for extra fuel savings. That’s good for 245 horsepower and 275 lb.-ft. of torque. You’ll also get standard features which include:
The SEL comes with the same standard 2.0L EcoBoost, but drivers also have the option to upgrade to the 280-horsepower 3.5L V6. It also comes with stunning 18-inch aluminum-painted, sparkle silver wheels with a split-spoke design. Some of the standout SEL features include:
The engine options for the Titanium model are the same as SEL. But the Titanium model distinguishes itself with increased luxury. You get 19-inch aluminum-painted wheels, ambient lighting, memory seats, LED tail lights, and more. Overall, the Titanium model delivers a more refined driving experience. Further impressive features include:
The Edge Sport model delivers the best in thrilling driving and comfort. The standard engine is a 2.7L EcoBoost V6 packing 315 horsepower and 350 lb.-ft. of torque. That power is delivered to each wheel with standard Intelligent All-Wheel Drive. For a little flair on the outside, you’ll find 20-inch polished aluminum with magnetic, low gloss pockets.
