2007 Ford Edge SEL Plus 4dr SUV AWD (3.5L 6cyl 6A)
Headed down to my Ford garage to buy my third Explorer, but really didn't want to face another 5 years of sub 20 MPG at $4.00 per gallon. Dealer suggested trying the new Edge. After trial, bought one. I have owned it for about one month and I like it. It is the only vehicle I have ever owned that people on the street turn and look at. My neighbors all came over to see the car that can drive on the edge of buildings. Haven't tried that yet. The suspension is much softer than the Explorer and other truck-based vehicles. This will take a while to get used to. I am hoping for average mileage North of 20 MPG. Too soon to tell.
It is surprising, but it has more interior cargo room than the Explorer. The SEL plus allows the front passenger seat to fold flat as well.
The tray on top of the dash has a chrome ring which reflects onto the windshield. A bit distracting, but I think I can get used to it. Should have a cargo cover.
