I haven't driven a Ford Edge in a long time--so long, in fact, that I forgot just how nice a vehicle it is. One quick glance at our test unit and you can't help but notice the optional 22-inch chrome wheels, which are a $1,000 option.
I was thoroughly impressed by the Edge, as was my dad, a retired Chrysler engineer who hadn't been in a Ford product in nearly ten years. This example's all-wheel-drive system gives the driver a good feel of the road, and power from the 3.5L V-6 is sufficient for the vehicle's size, allowing the Edge to get up to speed without hesitation. Inside the cabin at night, you can play with the color-adjustable ambient lighting, which shines on your feet both in the front and back seats. It also displays a cool ring effect in the cup holder as well.
My only complaint is that the brakes feel soft. More than once I had to use a lot of brake pedal in order to stop in a hurry, which made my commute home a little, dare I say, edgy?
