New Offerings Raise Expectations for Popular Edge

With new features such as polished aluminum 20-inch wheels, the SYNC3 voice recognition infotainment system and adaptive steering, the 2017 Ford Edge crossover vehicle is setting new consumer expectations for affordable and fun transportation. Consumer Reports says the Edge “shows a dynamic polish and upscale cabin that befits a prestige-branded model. Deserving of a ‘Most Improved’ trophy, the Edge brings newfound handling agility, interior refinement, and overall premium feel to the nameplate.” See what the Edge has to offer by comparing the various trim levels and taking a test drive at Chapman Ford.

Many Options to Consider

There are many standard features on the various Edge trim levels, but consumers should consider some options that make life easier. The power tailgate makes loading groceries and cargo a snap, and the HomeLink garage door feature comes in handy after a long day at work. Choose the Titanium or Sport trim and you get a whole slew of available options, including a 180-degree camera, adaptive cruise control and other driver assistance features. If heading to the mountains on a camping or ski trip are part of your normal routine, consider the affordable roof rails to add even more cargo space to the already roomy Ford Edge.

Big Things Come From a Small Package

Ford’s innovative EcoBoost technology is utilized in everything from the compact Fiesta to the full-size F-150 pickup. The Ford Edge takes advantage of the turbocharged 2.0L EcoBoost motor and a 2.7L EcoBoost to deliver both power and outstanding fuel efficiency. The Edge gets up to 29 miles per gallon on the highway with plenty of power for freeway merges or to just let your hair down on a lonesome country road. The 2.0L engine delivers 245 horsepower and a snappy 275 pound-feet of torque, while the larger EcoBoost motor ups the numbers to 315 and 350 for horsepower and torque, respectively.

Pick From Four Different Trim Levels

The 2017 Ford Edge SE starts at just $28,950 and includes the 2.0L engine, a 6-speed automatic transmission, hill start assist, traction control, power windows, power locks and much more. Step up a notch to the SEL package for a 10-way power driver seat and 6-way power passenger seat. The SEL also includes dual climate control and power mirrors. The Titanium model really starts to add on the cool stuff, with leather-trimmed seats, heated front seats and driver seat memory. SYNC3 comes standard in this model, as does a 12-speaker Sony stereo system. Ambient lighting adds an air of sophistication to the cabin. The Sport model adds intelligent all-wheel drive as a standard feature, including roll stability control and curve control. Compare all the models and pick the one that’s right for your needs and desires when you visit Chapman Ford.
