This Edge was my first Ford and first SUV. In the past, Ive owned traditional 4-door cars, unusually foreign made. I dont think its possible for me to express how happy I am with this Edge! The ride is smooth and very comfortable and it has a great 3.5 V6 paired with a smooth 6 speed transmission. I test drove the new 2007 Outlander, which couldnt hold a candle to this new Edge.
I love everything about the Edge, including: the Visa Roof, V6 engine, charcoal leather seating, and navigation/stereo system. Overall, this car has great fit and finish!
Im disappointed in the fuel economy; it claims to have 18/25. Im not driving it aggressively (in fact, Im babying it) and still only get 16 in the city. It might improve after the break-in period. Also, it doesnt come with Home Link, Bluetooth, or a power lift gate.
