2017 Ford Edge : the midsize crossover your family has been waiting for
February 27 2017,
Ford has one of the most extensive sport utility vehicle lineups currently on the market, and regardless of your needs, you are sure to find a model that will fit them within Ford’s current SUV family. There is of course the Ford Escape, one of the Canada’s best-selling compact SUVs, and the Ford Flex and Explorer which offer multiple rows of seats when you need to accommodate more than 5 passengers and all of their luggage. And then, there is the Ford Edge, a five-seat midsize SUV that fits right in between the SUVs listed previously.
With a high-end design, plenty of features, a host of engines to choose from and tons of interior space, the 2017 Ford Edge has a lot to offer. Redesigned two years ago, the new Edge also features the latest connectivity and safety technologies.
