2007 Ford Edge SEL Plus 4dr SUV AWD (3.5L 6cyl 6A)
Okay, it might be a bit early to jump to such wild assumptions, but I love this vehicle. Not seeing a lot of them yet out here, so I get the "What kind of car is that" question followed by, "no way that is a Ford". So the ego of course is inflated, but driving this thing is where you will fall in love. On ramps with all four wheels pulling are instant smile makers. Stomp the accelerator at 65 and feel yourself pulled back in the seat when the auto tranny smoothly downshifts to 3rd and 5500 rpms and you rocket past that pain hovering at 65 in the left lane. I thought my 525 would always be my favorite driver, but the Edge has made that a distant memory.
Interior and exterior design. Responsive handling. Large moonroof.
Fuel economy not as advertised, but probably because of my driving habits (jack rabbit starts, lots of city driving)
