Ford’s 2016 Edge midsize- crossover SUV challenges the best domestic and import rivals. The Edge’s styling is aggressive without going overboard, making it a nice fit between the wildly styled Nissan Murano and the sedate VW Touareg. The Edge offers plenty of room front and rear, as well as a generous cargo bay. Because Ford chose a car-based chassis, the Edge delivers exceptional ride and handling abilities, yet when equipped with all-wheel drive (AWD), can still venture into light off-road situations. The Edge has been engineered to be an exceptionally quiet vehicle, helping it compete with higher priced SUVs such as the Audi Q5 and BMW X3.
If you’re seeking a well-equipped 5-passenger crossover SUV that allows multiple personalization, engine and equipment choices, the 2016 Ford Edge will definitely excite you. Enthusiast drivers will love the Sport trim’s EcoBoost V6, which delivers an impressive 315 horsepower.
What’s New for 2016 : The Sport trim receives a number of upgrades including adaptive power steering, a power rear liftgate, a power adjustable steering column and all-wheel drive. All models gain keyless entry with push-button start, while new options include the Sync 3 infotainment system.
Driving Impressions: We’re impressed with the 2016 Ford Edge’s ability to balance power, efficiency and refinement in a package that is both agile and comfortable. Last year’s overhaul brought vast improvements to structural rigidity and suspension components, making the Edge feel livelier than the Toyota Highlander.
Inside, the 2016 Ford Edge SUV impresses with its quiet cabin, comfortable seats and attractively designed layout. Those looking for a more performance-oriented ride will appreciate the Sport trim’s 315-horsepower 2.7-liter turbocharged engine, variable-ratio power steering, sport-tuned suspension and standard AWD.
2.7-LITER ECOBOOST V6 ENGINE – Who says bigger is better? Ford’s 2016 Edge SUV offers a modest 2.7-liter turbocharged V6 engine, the same unit used to move the full-size F-150 pickup. Standard in the Sport trim, this engine makes the Edge one of the most powerful midsize SUVs in the segment.
LUXURY FEATURES, MAINSTREAM BADGE – Ford’s interiors of late have really been impressive, and the 2016 Edge crossover SUV is no exception. Offering such high-end amenities as climate-controlled seats, a power-adjustable steering column, a panoramic moonroof and front and rear cameras, the Edge can compete with luxury models costing thousands more.
The 2.7L makes a nice guttural sound at takeoff, the exhaust joining in with a deeper and more resonant waffling noise than expected for this powertrain’s smallish size. Its pull from standstill feels downright V8-like, the turbo causing a slingshot effect that leads to a 0-100km/h time of 6.2 seconds.
This is where the agile suspension comes into play, keeping the 2016 Ford Edge Sport fully planted at high speeds no matter if you’re headed down the straight and narrow or traversing a ribboning coil of curves and undulations. Really, experiencing the way this SUV handles you’d think BMW’s blue and white roundel was fixed to the hood. I’m willing to bet it’d be best-in-class if pitted against its real challengers on the track, and I suspect it would also put up a good fight against premium contenders.
Well, Badass until you get inside the 2016 Ford Edge Sport. First off, I wouldn’t recommend bringing your friends along for a ride. They’ll be sure you’re just as rough and rugged as you’ve always been when you drive by, but once in the passenger’s seat they’ll know you’ve gone soft. That’s because the new Edge is downright luxurious.
