Review: 2017 Ford Edge

The 2017 Ford Edge is the best choice if power, performance and technology are important for your lifestyle. 
EcoBoost Engines
The 2017 Ford Edge comes standard with the incredible 2.0L EcoBoost Engine, and includes active grille shutters and auto start-stop technology. This helps reduce your fuel consumption during stop and go city driving, because the engine will shut off when you come to a complete stop. Then it will start automatically as soon as you release the brake pedal. It's not something that slows you down; you won't notice the difference until you see the monthly fuel savings. 
The EcoBoost engine produces 245 horsepower and 275 lb-ft. of torque. The EcoBoost produces 29 highway miles per gallon with front wheel drive and that auto start stop technology. 
An optional 2.7L EcoBoost engine offers best-in-class V6 horsepower and torque. The third option is a 3.5L Ti-VCT V6 engine offers 280 horsepower and 250 lb-ft. of torque. You don't sacrifice on fuel, as this 3.5L engine offers up to 24 miles per gallon highway. 
With any engine choice, the Edge is available in both front wheel drive and winter-ready all wheel drive. 
Safety Technology 
The Edge gets us closer to the self-driving car with an amazing set of safety options. An adaptive cruise control option will automatically adjust your speed to keep a safe distance from the vehicle in front of you. 
With a forward collision warning with brake support, the vehicle will automatically start to apply to the brakes and slow the vehicle down if a collision is imminent. A Lane-Keeping System senses if you drift unintentionally out of your lane. Plus blind spot information system monitors what's happening in your blind spot and alerts you if someone is in the blind spot when it’s time to change lanes. 
An enhanced park assist system means the Edge automatically parks itself when you find a space. All you have to do is follow a few on-screen prompts and operate the accelerator, gear shifter and brakes as needed. 
The Edge even comes standard with a backup camera to easily get in and out of tight spots. 
It's hard to explain in word how amazing these features really are. The best way to see Ford's innovative technology is to visit George Waikem Ford and test drive one today. 
Entertainment Tech 
Technology options also keep you connected and entertained on the daily commute. The Edge comes with the optional Ford SYNC 3 system, the best way for your phone to communicate with your cars. 
Voice activated systems let you make hands-free calls, send text messages and even play songs and podcasts you have saved. 
Ford SYNC includes Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. With Apple Car Play and Android Auto, you bring the power of your phone to your car. There's Siri and Google voice activation to make phone calls, listen to voice mails, send texts and have text messages recorded over the speakers. 
Use your Apple or Google Maps apps for turn-by-turn directions, traffic conditions and estimated travel times. You can also access the popular apps from your phone like Facebook, Pandora and iHeartRadio. 
The Edge also comes standard with a front USB port to keep your phone charged. As you climb the trims, the Edge also comes with two rear USB ports so everyone keeps the phone charged. 
Loaded with Comfort
The 2017 Ford Edge has great optional features like heated and cooled leather seats, heated leather steering wheel and a panoramic sunroof. 
There’s even an optional power opening, hands-free lift gate. If the keys are in your pocket or purse, and your hands are full, simply slide your foot under the bumper and the trunk will rise. This is perfect if have a cart full or groceries or boxes, or if your carrying a child in your hands.
