Ford’s crossover category has blossomed over the last several years, and one need only look at the 2009 Edge Sport to understand why. This highly-regarded vehicle comes with a smorgasbord of stylish features and performance capabilities.
Saying the Edge Sport is driver friendly is an understatement. The standard 3.5L V6 motor and six-speed automatic transmission deliver fantastic results. There’s 265 horses to play around with, and torque is impressive at 250 lb.-ft. Also, a 2,000-pound towing capacity is available, while gas efficiency pleases at 24 MPG highway / 17 city.
This is a snazzy-looking automobile, too. The Edge sits on 22-inch polished aluminum wheels and incorporates Alcantara simulated suede/leather seat trim on the interior. There’s also a host of comfort-related conveniences. The front cushions and side mirrors are heated to stave off the chill of the winter months, and there’s driver lumbar support to keep your back in agreeable shape during longer trips. Additionally, fog lights are included to cut through any “pea soup”-type conditions on your treks around Seattle.
