Ford Edge Limited 2014 Review
The Ford Edge 2014 is quite an interesting, sleek SUV with 2 rows, a crossover that manages to do everything right. When referring to style, it is quite obvious that the SUV does stand apart because of the aggressive front end, the tire options offered and the massive wheels. We have great, cutting edge electronic communication and audio equipment. The engine options are also quite great but we will only stay focused on the 2014 Ford Edge Limited as this is the trim we are going to stay focused on.
There are no real significant changes in the 2014 Edge and it is quite obvious that we are faced with original styling, various high tech electronics added, suitable trim choices and proper fuel economy when referring to EcoBoost. However, the base model is not great, the rear visibility is limited and the included MyFord Touch is obviously too complex for various people. The Limited option is sort of in the middle of the trim line but can be considered as great for some.
The standard engine offered in the 2014 Ford Edge Limited is a V6 3.5 liters. That offers 253 lbs per feet of torque and 285 hp. The Environmental Protection Agency offers a rating of 19-27 city-highway. The rating goes down a little when using AWD. An optional engine option that is available with the Ford Edge Limited 2014 trim is the turbocharged 4 cylinder 2.o liters, with EcoBoost. That moves up everything to 240 hp and 270 lbs per feet of torgque. The rating moves towards 21-30 mpg city-higway. If you want EcoBoost, Front Wheel Drive is obligatory.
Standard Features – Options
The entry level Ford Edge 2014 has 17 inch wheels, cruise control, a 6 speakers sound system, auxiliary input, tilt-telescoping steering wheel and air conditioning. The Limited will move the wheels up to 18 inches chrome, add heated mirrors, driver memory functions. MyFord Touch, LED interior lighting, a unique dashboard layout, front seats that are heated, a premium sound system, an SD card reader, 2 USB ports, HD radio and leather upholstery.
The standard safety features included in the Ford Edge Limited 2014 model include stability control, full-length side curtain and front seat side impact airbags. The rearview camera, rear parking sensors and Blind Spot Information are optional. You can also go for the MyKey system, which is interesting. The safety tests done brought in average results.
The driving experience is definitely interesting as the Edge Limited offers good support for the lower backs and legs of the front seat occupants. The rear seat passengers can recline seats for great comfort on a long ride. You have enough legroom and headroom in all parts of the car. The MyFord Touch is definitely the one aspect that will stand out but it is really complex and many buyers will not appreciate it as it is complicated to use.
On the whole, the Ford Edge Limited 2014 is a really capable performer. It offers impressive road manners, a quiet interior and a suitable acceleration. Edge will cruise effortlessly and the only problem is that rear visibility is compromised.
