We’re always touting the many merits of Ford’s Edge line… and for good reason. It’s one of America’s best-selling crossovers and a force to be reckoned with on the roads of Renton, Bellevue, and Seattle. We’re talking about serious power and comforting cabin inclusions that make for an all-around automotive package.
Popping the hood, there is plenty to take in for engine enthusiasts. There’s a highly capable 3.5L six-cylinder motor on display in the standard configuration, producing 285 horses and 253-lb.-ft. of torque. Those are great specs for those purely concerned with power; however, if you’re looking for more balance, there’s an available turbocharged EcoBoost unit that pushes out 240 horses and 270-lb.-ft. torque, all while achieving a wondrous 30 MPG average on the highway.
The 2012 Edge Limited is also a winner in other respects. It wins favor with a 10-way power-adjustable driver’s seat that is also heated to fend off the chills of winter evenings. Lumbar support is also featured, as are premium leather-clad cushions.
