Ford Edge

Top 5 crossovers

Ford Edge

What is it: Nifty crossover-utility vehicle (CUV) from ford.

Tell me more: Sales of CUVs should surpass those of traditional, truck-based SUVs this year. This fast-growing segment -- up 8 percent so far this year -- might become the industry's biggest by 2010. ford hopes the five-passenger edge will become a dominant player. It has an aerodynamic profile, and borrows its bold front-end design from the Fusion sedan. Under the hood is a 265-horsepower, 3.5-liter V-6 that's paired with a six-speed automatic transmission. It comes in front- and all-wheel-drive versions. Side-curtain air bags and ford's traction and stability-control safety systems are standard.

Quote: ``An important introduction for the struggling automaker to be sure, the attractive and practical edge crossover has all the makings of being exactly what ford needs it to be: the right vehicle at the right time,'' said Jack R. Nerad, executive editorial director and market analyst at Kelley Blue Book's Web site:

Matt says: The Edge is about the same length as the popular Toyota Highlander, but it exudes personality that the Highlander and Honda Pilot lack.

When: November.

How much: $25,995 to $29,640.

If not, then: Toyota Highlander, Honda Pilot, Chevrolet Equinox.

Look for the photos:

This car is at the Car´s exhibition in Sao Paulo, called Salao do Automovel (during the days october 19 - 29, 2006) Visit the site (there´s English version):

You think the Edge is bad? check out the Clayton, and it comes with the Naomi with optional cell phone thrower

Interesting. Far too big a vehicle for me though. Kinda pricey.

I used to have a quote in my sig from the press release about the new Ford Edge:

"The Edge really is the total package."

I couldn't agree more

Edge should buy that!

But personally, I don't like it that much. I'm more into sportscars. Like Mustangs... (though I think the new Mustangs are hideous, particularly the boxy front end )

I'd like to test drive Edge. Actually the vehicle looks interesting, but too big for me at this time in my life. No SUV at over $2/gal for gas either, I need a more compact fuel economical vehicle to get me around the overly crowded roads of America.

The (car) Edge is not cool enough for The (real) Edge.

13 replies and not a single one of them puts "ride" and "edge" together.

I'm really very disappointed.

Does Carek's "test drive" count?

The problem is that what I want is not a Ford Edge but an Edge on my Ford (Mondeo )
