2007 Ford Edge SEL Plus 4dr SUV AWD (3.5L 6cyl 6A)
My husband, 6'2" and I, 5'6" both love the comfortable ride. We looked at many crossovers and SUVs before going with the Edge. We did add most of the options including the Vista roof, towing package. We love the power adjustable front driver and passenger seats with the Plus package. Our son has a Honda Pilot and we thought that would be our buy, but the Edge is much sportier and has a quieter, smoother ride. The ground clearance is the same. We did our time with kids and vans so don't need or want the 7 passenger seating vs 5. We compared reviews and specs for the Honda Pilot, Honda CRV, Volvo CX 90, Toyota Highlander, Toyota RAV. Just ran 1600 miles to Las Vegas and back. Great!
We prioritized: comfortable ride for 4 active adults with room for golf clubs. Power was a must to be able to run the mountains in Colorado at 70+ MPH. Handling musts are met with the AWD. We love the Vista roof and viewing the mountain canyons is a real treat. Recommend the Sirius and the 9 speakers
Wish the steering wheel would tilt down further, but the telescope is nice.
