For some drivers today, looking at used SUVs can be a disheartening experience. These people believe that a big boxy frame, a small and powerless engine, and a shell of an interior are all they can expect to get when they start searching around the SUV marketplace.
It’s only after they take a look at a pre-owned 2014 Ford Edge that they realize that exceptional speed and stunning style are still obtainable within this vehicle class.
A used Ford Edge packs an extremely powerful punch at first sight. This five-seater crossover-style vehicle makes an impression on pedestrians who see it coming, as Ford put great effort into making the exterior attractive to any car enthusiast. The bold front grill, rounded exterior curves, and thin-profile headlamps and rear lights look like something out of a sports car magazine. And that's just the outside.
Inside the Edge, style and technology join in unison. Mock carbon-fiber trim, LCD screens, softer-touch plastics and a finer aesthetic appeal, as well as less blocky shapes than previous models, are all immediately noticeable when you enter the doors. Technology includes power mirrors; an AM/FM/CD player with an auxiliary jack; tilt/telescoping steering; air conditioning; optional satellite radio; rear parking sensors; power front seats; and SYNC Bluetooth system.
Moving up the trim scale, you’ll find options, such as a glass Vista Roof, adaptive cruise control, leather upholstery, blind-spot monitors, a power tailgate, standard rearview camera; Sony sound system; HD radio; a rearview camera; and MyFord Touch.
More than just style, the Edge also brings plenty of power to the equation. Base model 3.5-liter V-6 engines push out an impressive 285 horsepower, while the Edge Sport ups the ante with a 3.7-liter V-6 with 305 horsepower.
If you’re feeling discouraged by the SUV market, it’s time to discover where speed and style come together.
