You Can Count on the 2017 Ford Edge

 

If you’re in the market for a reliable crossover SUV, come to San Tan Ford and check out the 2017 Ford Edge. In their review, Car and Driver praised the 2017 Ford Edge for “…its daring styling, relaxed ride, and sizable cargo bay.” We have a hunch that’s just what you’re looking for in your new crossover.

The relaxed ride that Car and Driver mentions is thanks in part to the active grille shutters on the 2017 Ford Edge, which help to reduce air resistance and boost fuel efficiency. When the shutters are closed, aerodynamics is optimized via reduced airflow through the radiator. Aero ducts are positioned on the lower fascia of the Ford Edge, allowing air to be guided through them and forced out across the front wheel wells, which creates an air curtain down the sides of the vehicle.

Standard on the 2017 Ford Edge Sport and available on all other trim levels is intelligent all-wheel drive (AWD), an invaluable add-on. It employs sensors to monitor traction constantly and reacts to that input by balancing torque between the front and rear wheels. This has the effect of optimizing both handling and traction, typically stopping wheelslip before it can occur and helping provide firm footing in varied road and weather conditions.

Three engine options are available to choose from in the 2017 Ford Edge. The turbocharged twin-scroll 2.0-liter EcoBoost® engine employs a high-pressure direct-injection fuel system to deliver the precise amount fuel and accurately manage boost and torque levels. The 3.5-liter twin independent variable camshaft timing (Ti-VCT) V6 powertrain features variable control of valve cam timing, allowing it to optimize performance across the entire low, mid, and high ranges of the power band in response to driving conditions. On the 2017 Ford Edge Sport, the lightweight twin-turbo 2.7-liter EcoBoost® engine provides an impressive output of 315 horsepower and 350 lb-ft of torque.

With 39.2 cubic feet of cargo room behind the second row, a bold design, and a bevy of standard and available safety features, the 2017 Ford Edge is sure to check off all of the items on your must-have list and then some.
