2018 Ford Edge Review
The spacious 2018 Ford Edge is an exciting midsize SUV capable of providing the versatility drivers deserve. It’s the right fit for those seeking a vehicle to drive the family around it, but also sporty and smooth enough to enjoy for daily driving.
The staff at Baierl Automotive has created this comprehensive car review for drivers navigating the roads of Pittsburgh, Wexford and Butler. In this discussion, we’ll touch on the 2018 Edge’s engines, interior features and available technology.
2018 Ford Edge Specs
The 2018 Edge brings plenty of versatility to the table when it comes to selecting an engine. As a matter of fact, there are three engine options. The standard turbocharged 2.0-liter EcoBoost® engine is fuel efficient and capable of handling daily driving needs, with the right amount of peppiness for city and highway driving, providing 245-horsepower.
The top-of-the-line twin-turbo 2.7-liter EcoBoost® engine in the Edge Sport puts out an impressive 315-horsepower, with a powerful V6 engine providing authoritative acceleration for pass-and-merge driving. The Edge is known for its ability to be a fuel saver, as the base model provides an EPA-estimated 20 MPG in the city and 29 MPG on the highway. Fewer fill-ups means more time spent on the open road.
Ford Edge Interior
Comfort is key. Space is, too. Luckily for you, the 2018 Ford Edge offers both. With 40.2 in. of front head room and 42.6 in. of front leg room, both the driver and front passenger will be relaxed. But there’s room in the back too, with a spacious 40.6 in. of leg room available for back seat passengers. Reclining seatbacks give second-row passengers even more reason to get comfortable.
When the rear 60/40 split seat is folded down, the Edge offers 73.4 cu. ft. of cargo space. Behind the back seat, there’s 39.2 cu. ft. of cargo room. A hands-free liftgate is available, giving access to the back with a quick wave of your foot near the rear bumper. That means even if your hands are full, you can access the back easily without having to put items on the ground.
Top-Notch Technology Found in Ford Cars
Make any commute or trip more exciting with the convenient and intuitive technology features found in the 2018 Edge. The base edition of the Edge comes with a 4.2-inch color infotainment screen and SYNC® interface with Apple CarPlay™ or Android Auto™ technology. By linking your smartphone to the SYNC® interface, you’ll be able to read text messages, play music and access favorite apps.
Driver-assist technologies keep you safe on the road, too. The available Lane-Keeping System lets you know if drifting is occurring while driving, alerting you to direct the vehicle back to the center of the lane. When backing into a spot or slowing the car to parallel park, available enhanced active park assist kicks in and gently guides the vehicle into the spot with minimal work needed from the driver.
