Just completed some spring cleaning and have a little extra room in your garage now that those old boxes have been tossed out, Seattle? Great—sounds like you’re ready to make use of all that space. And what more exciting way than to celebrate with a new vehicle? If you’re in the used market, you cannot do better than the 2012 Ford Edge Sport, a mid-sized crossover with ample power and smart safety features.
Pile into this SUV and get ready to roll! The 2012 Edge Sport is no joke when it comes to hitting the road with aplomb and a sense of urgency. The 3.7L V6 ensures that there’s nothing holding you back when you feel the need to get somewhere speedily. It drums up 305 horses and 280 lb.-ft. of torque, and is mated to Ford’s SelectShift. This nuanced transmission offers the simplicity of automatic operation with a semi-automatic sport mode for thrills that more hands-on drivers will dig.
Now, chances are you’re cruising with other passengers in the Edge and safety is going to be of paramount importance. Ford was considerate in this regard, offering a bevy of side curtain airbags and assorted inflatables throughout the front and rear that deploy in the event of a collision and ahead of a potential rollover. Plus, all-wheel drive is available to make off-road situations and inclement weather conditions more manageable.
