The all-new second generation Ford Edge was launched in 2006 and it is positioned between the Escape and the Explorer in Ford’s line-up. The latest generation Edge comes with edgier styling and looks like a smart, solidly build SUV crossover – which it actually is. The angular headlamps that connect with the large grille, the cladding all around, the large wheels and the LED tail lights all add to the stylish looks of the Edge.
The interior design is a bit toned-down, when compared with the bold and striking exteriors. The centre console looks like a premium and evolved version of the one on the Escape, but the use of soft-touch plastics on the upper surfaces alleviate the premium feel of the cabin. The seats are sculpted and feel nice and comfortable. There is enough room for five on the inside, but the Edge is still a compact SUV.
The Edge is offered in four variants – SE, SEL, Titanium and Sport. The SE, SEL and Titanium variants come powered by a 2.0L 4-cylinder EcoBoost engine that is good for 250HP and 378Nm of torque which is mated to a 6-speed transmission. Optionally buyers can opt for a 3.5L V6 Ti-VCT engine, which puts out 279HP and 340Nm of torque, if they desire the silky smooth power delivery of the V6. The flagship Sport variant comes with a 2.7L EcoBoost engine that delivers a punchy 335HP and 542Nm of torque which is mated with a 6-speed AT and comes with AWD as standard. All the variants handle really well and the ride too stays impressively flat.
Standard safety equipment include ABS with EBD, torque-vectoring, dual front airbags, side, curtain and knee airbags, ESP with roll stability control, hill-start assist, ISOFIX anchors for child seats and a post-crash alert system. A rear-view camera and auto-headlamps are standard too. Additionally, there is a long list of optional equipment available across the different variants, to further customize the Ford Edge.
