You might think that opting for a lower trim version of a vehicle automatically equates to an unrefined driving experience. However, that isn’t so with the immensely well-received 2012 Ford Edge SE. This is a machine with a peppy powertrain and a supremely comfortable cabin.
First, the engine. The 3.5L V6 in the Edge SE doesn’t mess around. It launches you down the roads of Seattle, Renton, and Bellevue, utilizing the full might of its substantial 285 horses. There’s also 253 lb.-ft. of torque on-hand. And although there’s plenty of speed and acceleration at your fingertips, your wallet isn’t going to get pinched if you enthusiastically barrel down streets. The EPA estimates you’ll garner 27 MPG on the highway and 19 in the city. Impressive!
Aside from the thrill offered by the engine, the interior of the Edge is a swell place to be. Getting in and out is a breeze owing to the remote keyless entry. Once you’re situated, the driver benefits from lumbar support that makes the cushy cloth seat even more comfortable. If you’re a big fan of music and diverse genres, you’ll love the radio, too. The AM/FM/Satellite-prep, seek-scan audio unit ensures you’re equipped to enjoy SIRIUS programming.
