Looking for a performance-oriented, driver-friendly crossover vehicle? Look no further than the 2015 Edge, the recipient of a 4.5-star rating from the experts at The Car Connection.
The base trim of this celebrated mid-sized SUV is outfitted with a 245-horsepower turbocharged engine that delivers a whopping 29 miles per gallon (MPG) on the highway. City cruising enjoys a similarly substantial ranking, coming in at 21 mpg.
Those looking for a little more pick-up can benefit from the available 3.5-liter V6, which boasts 280-hp. Drivers have noted a more impressive throttle response as a result of the peppier motor. Despite the extra “vroom!” afforded by the upgraded setup, consumers can still expect to see 26 mpg performance on the highway.
And if you really wish to be the envy of all Seattle-area car enthusiasts, the Edge Sport serves the option of a spectacular twin-turbocharged V6 that delivers an astounding 315-hp. The acceleration doesn’t come at the expense of efficiency—the engine continues to wow with 27 mpg on the highway, ensuring those family vacations are less “start-and-stop” and more “go, go, go!”
