Ford really struck upon something with the Edge Sport. It packs in all the thoughtful safety features that owners of a crossover expect, but it also circumvents expectations by going heavy on performance, too. Let’s examine the 2012 model year in greater detail!
We’ll begin with safety. This Edge offers fantastic peace of mind through its inclusion of standard features such as side-curtain airbags to mitigate rollovers and a rearview camera that makes it a cinch to see everything going on behind your car. There’s also all-wheel drive, which stands as more than an opportunity to perform some off-roading. It also helps maintain traction on regular street surfaces across a variety of conditions, ensuring tire slippage doesn’t occur.
Ah, and now for the kicker we mentioned earlier—the wicked performance. The 2012 Edge Sport is equipped with a rowdy 3.7L V6 motor that generates a sensational 305 horses and 280-lb.-ft. of torque. Also of note is the inclusion of Ford’s SelectShift, which combines a traditional automatic setup with a semi-automatic mode that will put a smile on the face of those folks that love manual transmissions.
