Kelley Blue Book Has Great Things to Say About the New 2018 Ford Edge

In fact, the Internet wing of the SUV research and valuation expert,, summed up its praise for the new Ford Edge with such flourishes as "brimming with style, power, and features." What else did the authority have to say about our automaker's latest spacious and highly versatile mid-size SUV-become-modern crossover?

For one, KBB noted that the new Edge was impressively balanced when it came to comfort, fuel economy, and horses under the hood, but nevertheless, it proved itself the sportier option than models like Subaru Outback, with "trims that can run circles around [it]." This may have owed in part to a favorite feature of the pro reviewers: the 2.7-liter EcoBoost® V6 engine standard in Edge Sport, twin-turbocharged to go excitingly high-octane and putting out 315 horsepower to drive the excursion. Of course, Edge got "a leg up on Subaru" in towing, too, capable of hauling up to 3,500 pounds compared to the latter's 2,700. As tow capacities go, that's light camper, dirt bike, snowmobile, and even personal watercraft territory.

Moreover, Kelley Blue Book noted, Ford Edge "misses nothing when it comes to driver comfort and protection." That's thanks to a two-row layout for five passengers in a selection of cloth, leather, or perforated leather seating as well as with 60/40 split rear seating that manually reclines and incorporates a center armrest. Bring standard Torque Vectoring Control into the mix for precise cornering, along with a standard AdvanceTrac® with RSC® (Roll Stability Control&#trade;) system with curve control and a host of other safety and driver-assistance features, and it's easy to see where this accolade came from.
