Yes, it's that good.
The Ford Edge, currently in its second generation, is more impressive than ever, and we still wonder why there’s a need for its platform mate, the Lincoln MKX. Yes, both offer different styling inside and out, as well as a different driving experience (depending on engine, of course). Thing is, the Edge Sport, in particular, is a 315 hp and 350 lb-ft of torque mid-size, two-row family crossover than simply dots all of the i’s and crosses all of the t’s.
In our latest review, the 2017 Ford Edge Sport proves it’s not only powerful and fun to drive, but also a luxurious vehicle that’s priced below not just a comparatively equipped MKX, but also the Lexus RX350, Infiniti QX50, and Cadillac XT5.
Combined with its Intelligent AWD System, Adaptive Steering, and an abundance of premium features, the Edge Sport has great exterior styling and an interior with Ebony leather trim with perforated suede, a 12-speaker Sony audio system, and a Panoramic vista sunroof. Yes, the Sport is the top-of-the-line Edge trim Ford offers, but with a $40,900 base price (our tester came to $46,040), we still find it difficult to make the case for any of the aforementioned luxury crossovers unless, of course, you just have to have a premium nameplate to show off. Special thanks to Future Ford of Sacramento for letting us film the car.
