Drivers in Harvey, New Orleans, and Metairie can learn more about the new Edge with this 2021 Ford Edge review from Bohn Ford.
Edge Engines and Performance
The Edge arrives with a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that produces 250 horsepower and 280 lb-ft of torque. The optional engine is a 2.7-liter twin-turbocharged V6 that produces 335 horsepower and 380 lb-ft of torque. The turbo-four comes with an 8-speed automatic transmission, while the V6 comes with a 7-speed automatic. Both engines come with front-wheel drive standard, but all-wheel drive is available.
Both the standard and sport-tuned Edge trim levels feel athletic on open roads and winding turns. The absorbent suspension soaks up road imperfections to keep passengers comfortable. The Edge maintains its poise through tight turns, and the steering is light and responsive.
Edge Space and Comfort
The Edge offers seating for five people in two rows of seats. The cushioned seats are firm and supportive, and an array of adjustments enhances the comfort further. Ample headroom and legroom are available in both the front and rear seats. Cloth upholstery is standard, but synthetic leather or genuine leather upholstery, heated and cooled seats, a heated steering wheel, and heated rear seats are optional. Dual-zone automatic climate control and a panoramic sunroof enhance interior comfort.
The cargo hold has 39.2 cubic feet of space behind the rear seats. With the seats folded down, the cargo space expands to 73.4 cubic feet. This is plenty of room for luggage and camping gear. An available hands-free power liftgate makes cargo loading and unloading quick and convenient. Inside the cabin, you’ll find numerous small storage spaces for passengers to stow keys and wallets.
Edge Technology and Safety
The Edge includes the intuitive SYNC® 4 infotainment system and a 12-inch touchscreen. The system is one of the best on the market and boasts a combination of physical buttons and touch inputs, a responsive touchscreen, and a variety of app connectivity. Amazon Alexa, Apple CarPlay®, and Android Auto™ are included, which gives you the option to access your phone’s apps and play music on the road. A Wi-Fi hot spot and satellite radio are also included. Optional features include navigation, a Bang & Olufsen sound system, and wireless device charging.
Numerous safety features are included for the Edge, such as blind-spot monitoring, a feature that alerts you to vehicles in your path when changing lanes. You’ll also get parking sensors, pedestrian detection, and automatic high-beam headlights. Optional safety features include adaptive headlights, hands-free park assist, and adaptive cruise control, which adjusts your cruise speed on the highway to remain with the stream of traffic.
