Ford had the grand idea of taking arguably the preeminent mid-size crossover vehicle and pepping up its performance with a supercharged model, and boy, are we glad they did. The 2012 Edge Sport delivers both power and superior safety in a big way, and consumers couldn’t be more pleased.
First, performance. This 2012 Edge doesn’t believe in unnecessary humility—it struts its stuff openly and proudly. The 3.7L V6 is a barely tamed beast that explodes with power. It’s capable of producing 305 horses and 280 lb.-ft. of torque. Fuel efficiency remains great at 26 MPG highway / 19 city. Also, the SelectShift transmission provides the ease of automatic operation merged with semi-automatic sportiness that gives the driver thrilling hands-on control.
Safety was a heavy priority when Ford’s designers dreamt up the Edge Sport. Side curtain inflatables join the usual assemblage of airbags to cushion passengers during a crash. These are augmented by a safety canopy that mitigates damage during a rollover. Additionally, traction control ensures your tires maintain a proper grip on the road across all conditions.
