The newest generation of the Ford Edge come in the following four trims: Limited, Sport, SEL, and SE. The base SE arrives with the typical amenities such as air-conditioning, a cd player, six-speaker sound system and aux audio-jack, 17-inch alloy wheels, a tilting/telescoping steering wheel and reclining rear seats for extra comfort in the back. Limited and SEL add to this list luxuries including MyFord Touch, heated seats, and a back-up camera to assist with backing up and parallel parking. Finally, the Sport set up is like the Limited, however it also adds transmission paddle shifters, sporty suspension, 22-inch wheels, and unique bodywork to put the "Sport" in sports utility vehicle. The 2014 Edge is a J.D. Power and associates award recipient for Quality in the Midsize SUV segment.
The base engine, a 3.5-liter v6, puts out 285 horsepower. The Sport engine, 3.7-liter v6, increases to 305 horsepower. For the eco-minded there is an optional EcoBoost engine which is a 2.0-liter turbo-charged 4-cylinder that calms down to 240 horsepower. Unlike many SUVs in the midsize-large crossover market, the Ford Edge lacks a third row of seats for extra passengers, but it makes up for this with a roomier 2nd-row and extra cargo space. Drivers can bring more luggage on road trips.
The 2012 Ford Edge received 4 out of 5 by NHTSA and the highest rating of Good from IIHS. This means the Edge is one of the safest vehicles on the road, with strong roof strength, side-impact and frontal-offset crash protection. So no matter what road or traffic conditions you may encounter the Edge will get you to your destination safely.
