My wife needed something with four wheel drive. We live on a mountain and get a lot of snow. I needed something to pull my 4 wheelers, that was as fun to drive as my Mustang, and my Audi turbo, and would be comfortable for road trips. My Audi was a fortune to maintiain. The Edge ride is so smooth. I like smoking BMW X5's off the line and the ride is very quiet. We love the look of it and I never get tired of driving it. Nice work Ford!!
The vista roof and luxury feel.
Gas mileage is not bad for a four wheel drive nor highway especially for the power. It gets very little wind resistance but gas is pricey now days. Maybe a two wheel drive option for the summer.
