While the five-passenger mid-size crossover SUV class is pretty crowded, the 2016 Ford Edge easily rises to the top thanks to unmatched versatility and performance. Ford has been Canada’s Best-Selling Automotive Brand Seven Years in a Row (2009-2015), and when you look at the available powertrains, interior options, and the exterior appearance of the new Edge, it’s easy to see why. This year’s Ford Edge is available in four trim levels: SE, SEL, Titanium, and Sport.
Stylish and Tech-Focused
Bold exterior styling helps the four-door 2016 Ford Edge make an impact in a heavily-populated class. The tall front end features a hexagonal grille, centered around the trademark blue oval, and bordered by automatic quad-beam halogen headlamps with wiper activation – HID headlamps are available for improved night vision. Bright mouldings highlight the high beltline above the creased and curve side sheet metal. Not just a handsome face, the Edge also has a number of little party tricks that make it a convenient and useful vehicle. Heated mirrors repel ice and snow to improve visibility. Roof rails, racks, and carriers expand the possibilities so you can carry larger objects or more cargo. When you have your hands full of groceries or gear, the available foot-activated hands-free power liftgate is a life saver, and the first of its kind in a non-luxury vehicle. Add personal touches, with the choice of wheels ranging from 18 to 21 inches, along with nearly a dozen colour choices. Sport versions add unique exterior features, including body-colour cladding, dual bright exhausts integrated into the rear lower fascia, model-specific headlamp treatment and a Piano Black grille.
Seating for five, plus room for up to 2,078 litres of cargo, makes the 2016 Ford Edge one of the most versatile and flexible mid-size crossovers on the market. Surround yourself in cloth upholstery with soft-touch and metallic trim, or opt for upgrade cloth or leather upholstery for a touch of class. Upgraded instrument panel appliqués, Satin Twilight or metal-plated accents, ambient lighting, aluminium pedals and leather trim all help to set the mood, whether you are going for luxury, sport, or any other feel. In terms of comfort, both rows of seats and the steering wheel can all be upgraded to heated versions, while the front row of seats can be ventilated. Combined with the dual-zone electronic automatic temperature control and Remote Start System, this means you’ll never have to be in a vehicle that is too hot or too cold ever again. Ford equips the Edge with a range of powerful multimedia centres, from the basic SYNC system to the new SYNC 3. All of these systems feature a colour LCD screen and voice recognition capabilities, along with a USB port and audio jack. Opting for the SYNC 3 adds in a premium audio system, along with an extra USB port and a larger 8.0-inch screen. Voice-activated navigation is an independent option. Give your passengers entertainment with the available Dual HeadRest DVD system, or opt for giving them a great view with the Panoramic Vista Roof.
Plenty of Options for Power or Efficiency
Offering an incredible variety of powertrains, the 2016 Ford Edge is set to meet your needs. By offering both front- and all-wheel drive, plus engines that range from an economical 2.0-litre to a powerful V6, you can get the engine that fits your daily needs. The Edge provides a smooth, comfortable ride, and still has the ability to tow up to 1587 kilograms when properly equipped.
