If you are looking a midsize five-seat crossover SUV, the 2017 Ford Edge is your solid choice thanks to its carlike road manners, roomy and well-equipped interior, and a plethora of features content. Plenty of state-of-the-art and impressive features, a competent base engine, a prevailing Sports model, and a refined ride quality are Edge’s other potencies. You should wait until the beginning of 2017 for the release date.
2017 Ford Edge Exterior
Body structure and suspension of the new Edge receive improvements that make the 2017 Ford Edge SUV feels maneuverable and organized on the road despite its midsize footprint and its generous passenger and cargo space. Though it has more than two tons weight, there is car-like feel in this little crossover SUV.
2017 Ford Edge Interior
Most of the surfaces are covered with premium materials inside the car. Everything feels and looks smooth including the dashboard, center console, and door panels. There is a quality finish and feel for every surface from the driver seat. But, the center stack is made of hard plastic that looks and feels cheap. The infotainment system is updated, more responsive and user-friendly unlike the confusing and slower to respond of that of the previous model. This 2017 Ford Edge stands out in the class due to its eccentricities such as slow downshift on the automatic transmission system and the base model’s dull performance.
