The 2016 Ford Edge represents the second year of the second-generation of this midsize crossover. When the Edge was first launched in 2006 as a 2007 model it was pretty smart-looking vehicle, even more so after an impressive facelift in 2010. The current model is still one of the most attractive vehicles in its class, but there's so much more than just the immensely pleasing aesthetics to appreciate when you look a little closer.
The second year of a new generation of a vehicle is never going to see major upheaval, well, as long as the manufacturer didn't get things very wrong in the first place that is. The Blue Oval certainly didn't get things wrong with the Edge, but there is a significant enhancement this year in terms of the steering system employed by the 2016 Ford Edge. A completely new adaptive steering system is now standard across the Edge lineup, which is designed to make the crossover more fun to drive and easier to maneuver at low speeds. This is achieved by reducing the number of turns required to go lock to lock at parking lot speeds, but then increasing the amount of driver input that's needed to steer at higher speeds. Slower steering at relatively high speeds therefore increases stability and allows for an altogether more precise feel for the driver.
There's certainly plenty of choice with the 2016 Ford Edge, with four trim levels, three engines, 10 vibrant exterior colors and 11 interiors to select from.
The four trims start with the well-equipped SE and then go SEL, Titanium and Sport. The base engine is the excellent 2.0-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder turbo that develops 245 horsepower and 275 lb.-ft. of torque. In the entry level SE trim this engine also gets auto stop/start as standard, but there's no option to upgrade to all-wheel drive if you want the improved fuel economy stop/start technology delivers. The SEL and Titanium trims get the non-stop/start 2.0-liter EcoBoost engine, but there's the option of upgrading to a 3.5-liter normally aspirated V-6 if you prefer. The 3.5 is available with front or all-wheel drive and produces 280 horsepower and 250 lb.-ft. of torque and comes mated to the same six-speed automatic transmission found across the entire 2016 Ford Edge lineup. Last but by no means least, is the Edge Sport, and this top-of-the-range model features a spectacular 2.7-liter V-6 EcoBoost V-6 that puts 315 horsepower and 350 lb.-ft. of torque at your disposal.
Particularly when you get towards the top of the 2016 Ford Edge lineup, this superb midsize crossover starts to look and feel a lot like a luxury offering. The only thing lacking in that direction are the prestige badge and a vastly inflated price ticket to go with it.
