Superior spaciousness and safety are hallmarks of the fantastic 2017 Ford Edge Titanium. Detroit’s prominent auto manufacturer has put out a heck of a mid-size crossover this past year, and we feel confident you’re going to love it the moment you get behind the wheel.
Ford’s created a vehicle of substantive size here—it measures 188″ L x 76″ W x 69″ H. What you should take away from these dimensions is the fact that you and your passengers are going to have bountiful room to store your cargo. With all seats and occupants in place, there are 39.2 cubic feet of storage area to work with. However, if you put down the back row, there’s a maximum of 73.4 cubic feet.
The 2017 Ford Edge Titanium is well-equipped to provide for the safety of its occupants, too. Firstly, there are front, rear, and side-curtain airbags that will deploy to mitigate the effects of a collision. Further, there’s the built-in intelligent traction control system. It uses a variety of sensors to observe real-time street conditions and determine whether tire skidding/slipping is a threat; if so, it will brake the wheels selectively to compensate.
A sweet cabin and an even sweeter engine… that pretty much sums up the automotive treat that is the 2009 Escape Limited. It may have a few years under its belt but it remains a superlative machine that is fun and satisfying to drive—a prime pre-owned vehicle that we heartily recommend to anyone in the market.
This compact crossover has an excellent interior with quality features, ranging from comfort options to convenience-based amenities. For example, you can access the cabin even if you’ve misplaced the key fob—there’s a numeric pad on the driver’s door that grants you entry as long as you have the passcode. The seats are clad in supple leather, while a glass sunroof overhead lets in bountiful natural light on beautiful days.
The 2009 Escape Limited is primed for top performance, too. It’s outfitted with a sensational 3.0L six-cylinder motor that creates 240 horses and 223-lb.-ft. of torque. That’s spirited power that is joined by the ease-of-operation presented via the car’s automatic transmission. Plus, there’s a 2,000-pound towing capacity!
Ford’s Explorer has been a best seller in showrooms across the country for years now and the reasons for that tend to be multifaceted. However, two of the line’s enduring qualities are a dedication to performance and a commitment to safety. In this regard, the 2012 XLT model is a standout.
It begins with what lies under the hood. The engine ensures thrilling drives every time you take to the streets. The 3.5L six-cylinder boasts 290 horses and 255-lb.-ft. of torque, making you one of the top dogs on the roads of Renton and Seattle. And if you need to tackle the trails, the four-wheel-drive functionality instills great confidence.
The 2012 Explorer XLT isn’t just a favorite of consumers—critics and governing bodies have heaped praise on it, too. The IIHS, for example, has awarded it its “Top Safety Pick.” The machine tested wonderfully in their examinations as a function of features such as front and rear head and side-curtain airbags, as well as electronic traction control. Further, smart touches like powered and heated side mirrors help mitigate blind spots and further protect passengers.

Strap yourself in tightly, Seattle, because this Escape can definitely move! The 2.0L engine has plenty of “oomph”—it produces 245 HP and 275-lb.-ft. of torque at 3,000 revolutions per minute (RPM). The result of this brawn? You’ll be hustling from zero all the way up to 60 MPH in only 7.3 seconds.
The 2017 Escape Titanium is refined on its interior and exterior, as well. The side mirrors are powered, making it a cinch to adjust and compensate for blind spots. The leather seats grip you comfortably and provide heated functionality that makes wintertime driving much more enjoyable. And the SiriusXM AM/FM/HD/satellite radio unit offers greater entertainment options versus terrestrial stations.
Take a deep breath—you’re in for a wild ride. Goosebumps and hair-raising fun can be had the moment you punch the pedal down. This crossover is equipped with a spectacular 3.5L six-cylinder engine that produces 365 HP at 5,500 revolutions per minute (RPM) and 350-lb.-ft. of torque at 3,500 RPM. As a result, you’re treated to a 0 to 60 MPH time of just 6.4 seconds.
The 2016 Explorer Sport’s engine is mated to a six-speed automatic transmission that enables smooth-shifting performance. And let’s not forget about the all-wheel-drive capability. It enables this machine to be just as effective off-road as it is on it. It’s built to tackle the trails and handle whatever you throw at it.
Ford’s been at its best of late and—although we may admittedly be a bit biased—we have to say they’ve absolutely dazzled us with the 2017 Edge SE. This crossover is at the top of the food chain, supplying owners with both immense performance and excellent safety features to ensure passenger security.
This mid-size crossover will stun you the moment you press down on the pedal. There’s fantastic responsiveness here—the 2.0L EcoBoost engine is frisky and performance-tuned, pushing out a robust 245 HP at 5,500 revolutions per minute (RPM) and 275-lb.-ft. of torque at 3,000 RPM. And with an average highway MPG of 29, you won’t be feeling the pinch at the pump, either.
The 2017 Edge SE comes through for you in the most important category, too: safety. Electronic traction control is integrated, enabling the use of sensors to detect street conditions in real-time and compensate for the possibility of skidding by selectively braking the wheels as necessary. There’s also an intelligent lane-keeping system that uses cameras to read road markings as you travel along the highway; if you stray from your path, the technology can autonomously correct the issue for you.
If you’re on the hunt for a gently pre-owned vehicle ahead of the holidays, there’s still time to secure an amazing automobile! Specifically, if you want something maneuverable but also spacious, it doesn’t get any better in the compact crossover space than the 2014 Ford Escape S.
This Escape comes bearing dimensions of 178” long x 72” wide x 66” high. Of course, that can be difficult to visualize, but the important takeaway is the resulting cargo space you’re afforded as a result of that construction. With all the seats up, you’ll receive 34.3 cubic feet of room. With the rear row down, however, you’ll enjoy a max total of 67.8 cubic feet.
The 2014 Escape S has some pep in its step, too. Responsiveness is assured via the 2.5L engine, which produces 168 HP and 170-lb.-ft. of torque. This performance is complemented by fuel economy—the EPA estimates you’ll benefit from an average highway MPG of 32. You won’t be making many pit stops at the gas station!
