2017 Ford Edge
Cruising in the 2017 Ford Edge with your hair down, windows cracked, and the soundtrack of your life playing at top volume is a luxury in itself. This mid-size crossover plays the role of spacious carpooler during the week and family hauler on your days off, but compact enough to ease your mind.
No matter what kind of driver you are, the 2017 Ford Edge wants to make your life easier. It might be a mid-size crossover, but, inside, it feels like much more. Its two rows of seating provide generous space for up to five adult-sized passengers. It's rare to see true three-across rear seating in the mid-size crossover segment, putting the Edge a cut above the competition. This model is as perfect for an afterhours outing with the girls (or guys) as it is for transporting your kids to their various social functions. The Edge's cargo hold is equally attractive, with 39.2 cubic feet behind the rear seats - a figure that few can beat. You should be able to fill it with your weekend luggage, ice chest, and beach supplies and still have room leftover for whatever knickknacks you pick up on your trip.
The last thing anyone should do is reach for a cellphone in the midst of driving. Luckily, the 2017 Ford Edge helps you call home. The Sync 3 infotainment system pairs with your smartphone, and, from there, you can use voice controls to send texts or make calls - all without turning away from the road for even a split second. In addition to smartphone integration, this modern infotainment interface includes a crisp 8-inch touchscreen that makes it easy to find the feature you want - whether it's music or an up-to-the-minute traffic update. The Edge's navigation system will help you find the latest brunch hotspot - as well as the nearest parking garage.
It's time to step up your safety game. Choose the 2017 Ford Edge for that coveted combo of pristine crash-test scores and high-tech driver aids. After a barrage of government crash tests, the Edge earned a perfect five-star rating for overall protection. Similarly, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety gave the Edge its top score of "Good." The prized forward collision warning system does more than warn you of an oncoming crash. It primes the brakes to deliver maximum stopping power in the face of danger. The Edge's lane departure warning system can also act swiftly to help you avoid accidentally drifting outside your intended lane.
In modern Ford fashion, the Edge supplies a range of engine options - so you can be anything from fuel-efficient to ultra-speedy. We're especially big fans of the EcoBoost engine, which add a turbocharger into the mix to balance a sporty ride with optimal fuel economy. Depending on which engine speaks to you, the Edge earns up to 21 city/29 highway mpg. It's also got some muscle. Properly equipped, the Edge can tow up to 3,500 pounds, giving you a family-friendly way to get your boat to the local loading docks.
For a little extra flash in your driveway, take the 2017 Ford Edge Titanium home with you. This model is fully loaded with all the luxurious extras, including ambient interior lighting, which helps you sort through your carryon items after dark. It also adds front sport seats, which supply better bolstering to keep you snug as you fly around corners.
Even if you're just heading out on your morning ride through rush-hour traffic, the 2017 Ford Edge gives off a distinct air of adventure. With legitimate three-across seating in the back, the Edge is a crossover that families of five can embrace on a cross-country road trip. In addition to space, the Edge's safety gear and solid crash-test scores have universal appeal. When you want to send a hands-free text to let friends know you're on the way, the Sync 3 infotainment system happily obliges.
