Speed proves the great foe of the crossover world - with big-wheeled machines hampered by their high rooflines and staggering weights. They are graceless while cornering; and every acceleration leaves drivers stumbling down the lane.
With the release of the 2019 Edge, Ford will change this - connecting Seattle consumers to robust power on the highway. Size will no longer impede performance. Instead this platform will compete with every mid-size speedster.
According to Consumer Reports, the 2019 Edge is ready to impress. Beneath its hood rests a turbocharged 2.0L four-cylinder engine - which yields 250 HP and 275 lb.-ft of torque. 21-inch wheels glide smoothly over every terrain; an available AWD improves performance, delivering strut suspension responses and EPA steering capabilities; and the addition of an eight-speed automatic transmission (complete with rotary dial) ensures crisp handling.
When these elements combine, they allow the burly 2019 Edge to achieve a top-speed ratio of 130 MPH - letting drivers achieve pedal-to-the-metal thrills without sacrificing crossover comfort.
Are you as impressed as we are?
The 2019 Edge (which has just made its Detroit Auto Show debut) will soon arrive in Seattle. We anticipate that this platform will prove a popular addition to our lot - and we, therefore, encourage drivers to schedule an early test-drive to avoid the last-minute rush. Contact us today to learn more!
