The 2017 Ford Edge a five-passenger SUV with plenty of room for a family. And all its cargo the edge sits between the compact Escape and the larger Flex and Explorer filling a sweet spot by offering the perks of an SUV. While still being small enough to manage easily the Edge was all new for 2015. So there are no significant changes for this model year. The 2017 Ford Edge offers a new cold weather package and new 20-inch wheels. Let's a closer review of the 2017 Ford Edge and see if it's the right choice for you.
Outside of the 2017 Ford Edge is pretty understated. And there's nothing flashy with no rugged looking exterior add-ons. The most striking part of the edge is the grille which adds presence and complements the cars streamlined design. Inside the story depends on very much on which trim level you choose. But what doesn't change between trims is the abundance of cheap plastics on the dashboard. There is more contrast to the attractive seating materials.The plastics not only look cheap and seriously detract from an otherwise quality interior.
The 2017 Ford Edge features plenty of space for passengers with comfortable seating. And an expansive second row offering 40.3 inches of headroom and 40.6 inches of legroom. The rear seats split-fold 60/40 for carrying cargo with 39.2 cubic feet available behind the second row, or 73.4 cubic feet when they folded flat.
The 2017 Ford Edge comes with one of three engines starting with a 2-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder EcoBoost engines, with 245 horsepower and 275-pound feet of torque. And the front wheel drive is the only option. On the other hand, the features start/stop technology for improved fuel economy making it the most fuel-efficient version. The 2017 Ford Edge it gets an EPA estimated 21 miles per gallon city and 29 highway.
Step up to the SEL or titanium, and you get the option of a 3.5-liter, 6-cylinder engine with 280 horsepower and 250-pound feet of torque. Sitting at the top of the lineup is the 2017 Ford Edge sport the only trim that offers a 2.7-litre turbo, 6-cylinder EcoBoost with 315 horsepower and 350-pound feet of torque.
The Edge Sport handles well without any top heavy SUV feel, and the 2016 Edge sport had very grabby brakes. We find that this year braking is solid giving the driver plenty of confidence behind the wheel. The ride is smooth and quiet even on the highway you're not going to need to raise your voice to talk to passengers in the rear seat.
The old MyFord Touch infotainment system received harsh criticism, and thankfully the new Ford Sync system is much better. The 2017 Ford Edge offers two options the base sync system includes a 4.2-inch color LCD screen and only one USB charging port, while the upgraded sync brief system adds an 8-inch color touchscreen and a second USB port.
The system is easy to use in either form. But Sync 3 is better by far the larger screen is easier to see at a glance, and the touchscreen makes it easier use a six-month trial subscription to Sirius XM is standard on all but the SE trim. And you have several choices of upgraded stereos including a 12 speaker Sony audio system.

But so do the available features the SEL as the smooth full rear seat release and dual zone climate controls for $ 31,970 Sync 3 is available as an option. But as a $2,920 package that also includes leather upholstery in heated front seats the Titanium's goes even further with heated front seats, standard Sync 3 and a 12 speaker Sony audio system for $35,600.
