As gas prices rise and car buyers realize they can do more with a little less, the mid-size crossover- SUV segment continues to grow. The 2010 Ford Edge is a Goldilocks vehicle of sorts, filling the gap between smaller haulers like the Ford Escape and bigger, 3-row vehicles like the Ford Explorer.
Softer than some, stiffer than others, the 2010 Ford Edge hits the mass-appeal sweet spot in ride and handling. Coupled with a refined, eager powertrain and notably quiet highway cruising, the roomy, comfortable, versatile Edge is an extraordinarily well-rounded way to move throughout the world.
The 2010 Ford Edge is trendy, elegant and at the same time a very functional sport utility vehicle. With its striking outlook and interior, it stands out in the crowd. It is a highly capable mainstream crossover. The Ford Edge might even replace the minivan. With lots of cargo space and cabin space, carpooling may be back with a bang. Not only that, but gas-guzzling SUVs may run for the hills after such economical midsize SUV crossovers are introduced in the market.
Remote Seatback Release – For loading larger items, the split rear seatback folds flat at the push of two cargo area-mounted buttons.
“Vista Roof” Glass Sunroof – Open or closed, the Edge’s massive glass sunroof really livens up the passenger cabin. There’s even a second, fixed glass panel over the second row.
With a bold front and headlamps in the seam along the front grill, the Ford Edge gives the look of a full-size SUV, but with the comfort of a sedan. The design of this vehicle is simple and yet very chic, it’s pleasing to the eyes no matter whether it is for a teen, a working mother, or just a person who needs a multipurpose vehicle.
There is 32.2 cubic feet of cargo space available behind the second row, which provides ample space. But flip those back seats down – done via the flick of a switch – and you get up to 69 cubic feet of room, all of which I put to good use when picking up some new accessories for the backyard or to prep for winter festivities.
By masterfully combining the best attributes of a responsive but comfortable sedan with those of a versatile and roomy SUV, the 2010 Ford Edge fulfills the promise of the Crossover Utility Vehicle (CUV) like no other example to date (2010). It also demonstrates impeccable timing, earning a spot last year as the nation’s best-selling crossover, proof that many car-based CUV sales are now overtaking their truck-based SUV counterparts.
Under the Hood: In addition to Ford’s newest V6, the Edge’s powertrain features a cutting-edge six-speed automatic transmission that’s the product of a joint development program between Ford and GM. The all-wheel-drive system functions in front-wheel-drive mode until a need for additional traction is detected.
The Edge sits between the Escape and the Explorer in Ford’s lineup, but unlike most middle children, isn’t being ignored by consumers.
