2015 Ford Edge SE 4dr SUV AWD (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6A)
The only advantage for me was visibility - good ahead and good to the sides and rear. This is a big vehicle which I find sluggish and it handles on the road like a commercial van. The controls are not intuitive - I found the radio hard to operate (and annoying when it decides to do its own thing), the GPS hard to use, the heater / air con very hard to use. The car is full of features and has lost sight of what a vehicle is about: driving. The manual says a lot: 450 pages.
2015 Ford Edge Sport 4dr SUV AWD (2.7L 6cyl Turbo 6A)
Spent a week driving my sisters Lexus. I was very surprised at how mediocre the car drives. It looks nice, has an OK interior, but rides like a bucking bronco. Truly, awful to ride in. The soft suspension along with poor suspension control resulted in a bouncy, rocky ride. My elderly mother, who usesly love to go for a drive did not like riding in the Lexus. A week later a friend lent me his 2015 Edge for a long weekend drive into the mountains. The car was comfortable, handled well and had a very controlled ride. The Ford was way more comfortable than the Lexus and in many ways felt more up market. Nice going Ford.
Just bought a 2015 Edge SE that now has 2,000 miles. So far, several things have happened: 1. Tire Pressure Sensor Fault keeps going on and off. 2. Seems my gas gauge must be related to Houdini. I parked the Edge with half a tank and the next morning, a quarter tank had disappeared! (The service guy at the local Ford dealer said it was possible someone had stolen gas. No. The vehicle is kept in the garage 95% of the time. 3. Mysterious rattle in the front right passenger side. Motor Trend magazine said the cabin was "littered with rattles." Seems Ford thinks rattles are a sign of quality. 4. Not getting the advertised gas mileage. This maybe due to break in period. I hope it is. A vehicle should not rattle with just 2,000 miles on it. And the vehicle has only been on pavement, not off road. If Ford does not fix this, then this will be my only Ford and will urge everyone I know NOT TO BUY a Ford.
