More great news from Ford. Once again, the American automaker is making headlines being named tops with J.D. Power. That’s right, the Ford Edge was named the best Midsize SUV. The runner ups included the Nissan Murano and Hyundai Sante Fe. Its primary competitors include: Kia Sorento, Mitsubishi Outlander, and Subaru Outback.
It’s no surprise to us here at Randall Reed’s Planet Ford in Humble (serving Kingwood, Atascocita, Katy, Conroe, Houston) that the Edge had the “edge” over the competition. The midsize crossover SUV is popular with our customers and offers a wide variety of options.
See what people had to say during the EcoBoost Challenge…
The spacious SUV has seating for 5 passengers and is available with either front-wheel (FWD) or all-wheel drive (AWD). It comes with 4-cylinder or V-6 power. There are various trim levels: SE, SEL, Limited and Sport.
The SEL trim level features items such as: SYNC connectivity, dual-zone automatic climate control, upgraded interior materials, a 10-way power driver’s seat, EasyFold rear seats, auto-dimming rearview mirror, satellite radio, and a cargo management system.
As for the exterior, it includes: auto headlights, headlight-linked windshield wipers, heated mirrors, rear park-assist, body-color exterior trim and 18-inch aluminum wheels. The SEL also has a SecuriCode keyless entry pad on the driver-side door.
Then, there is the lush Limited trim. Leather seats, heated front seats, memory for the driver’s settings, a 10-way power front passenger’s seat, ambient cabin lighting, and a universal garage door opener…. the list goes on and on. The Limited also has a MyFord Touch touch-screen infotainment system, premium audio system with HD Radio, reversing camera, and a Media Hub with USB ports, an SD card reader, and audio/video input jacks. Extra chrome on the exterior add to the Edge’s finishing touches.
Looking for something more sporty. Then, you will want the Sport trim. It has a larger and more powerful V-6 engine, paddle shifters, sport suspension, and 22-inch wheels. This model come with cool charcoal leather seats, 6-way power front passenger’s seat that folds flat to expand cargo-carrying capability, black grille, unique headlight and taillight treatments, body-color exterior trim, and oval polished exhaust tips.
