Living in the pacific northwest presents some unique adventure opportunities. Within a few hours of Seattle, drivers looking to explore the great outdoors can pack up their gear and head to breathtaking destinations, such as Diamond Lake, Twenty-Five Mile Creek, and Sacajawea State Park. These popular camping and boating sites are all accessible by road -- that is if your vehicle is reliable enough to get you and all your gear there.
Let’s face it, most 4-door sedans aren’t going to cut it if you and the family are headed out for a weekend of adventure and exploration. You need something that offers more space, more power, and better towing capabilities.
A 2015 Ford Edge could be exactly what you need. This model offers a stylish, sports-driven look, a comfortable and elegant interior, and the power and towing capacity to get you across mountainous landscapes and over dirt and gravel roads -- even with a trailer attached to the rear.
Let’s start with the interior. The Edge’s interior is spacious and comfortable, leaving 39.2 cubic feet of cargo space with the seats up in place, and a whopping 73.4 cubic feet of cargo space with the rear seatbacks folded. It’s also loaded with cutting-edge technology, such as full power accessories, air conditioning, cruise control, painted alloy wheels, tilt/telescopic steering adjustment, and the Sync connectivity system. Higher-trim versions also have optional 12-speaker Sony audio system, MyFord Touch, a hands-free tailgate system, panoramic Vista Roof, 180-degree front camera with washer, remote starter, rain-sensing wipers, heated seats, HID headlamps, and Ford’s Active Park Assist.
The base model Edge exceeds performance expectations, with a 2.0L 4-cylinder engine boasting 245 horsepower and 275 pound-feet of torque. The powerful V6 version reaches an impressive 315 hp and 350 lb-ft.
The 2015 Edge comes in three different trim levels. Here’s a quick list of the towing capabilities of each trim:
● 2.0L I4 EcoBoost FWD/AWD reaches up to 3,500 lbs.
● 2.7L V6 EcoBoost FWD/AWD reaches up to 2,000 lbs.
● 3.5L V6 FWD/AWD reaches up to 3,500 lbs.
As you can see, no matter what version you select, towing capacity isn’t any worry with the Ford Edge.
