We examined the new Ford Edge 2012 and we are predisposed to Ford brand crossovers. We are still impressed by the new Ford Explorer and the current EDGE platform. In other words, we got into the new Ford Edge with some positive feelings about the vehicle.
We also know something about Ecoboost in conjunction with four cylinders. Ford delayed the release of this transmission for about a year to overcome the problems with its slightly incorrect work in large cars, such as Ford Edge.
The delay was well spent time. Thanks to the 2.0-liter Ecoboost engine, the Ford Edge 2012 is a fantastic car, perhaps it can be more satisfied with its driving than from version V6. No, this is not a rocket, but it never feels that the car requires more power.
The fact that 270 nm of torque moving along the new Ford Edge 2012 should not be a surprise. This Ford Edge 2012 is contrasting with Volkswagen Tign, a smaller car, but with the same small engine with turbocharged four cylinders and a torque that is transformed automatically – Ford Edge 2012 was an impeccably smooth and calm. Real gratitude for the Ecoboost Ford Edge that it moves like a completely ordinary crossover.
At the same time, you will not be able to hear a turbine whistle and will not worry that the engine with four cylinders overwork, dispersing the Ford Edge 2012. This engine built in Spain goes well with a gearbox with six speeds. And any fluctuations are well drowned out.
The front seats in the new Ford Edge are wide and convenient with slight lateral support and built -in heating.
In this Ford Edge 2012, Myford Touch system has been implemented. The display is large and bright. The training is very cool, and making changes on the fly is better to leave your passenger if possible. The question that upset the most is the delay between the choice of functions and the response of the system. Yes, the delay is only a couple of seconds, but this is more than many drivers need to feel comfortable.
Bottom line: the new Ford Edge 2012 is a strong opponent for buyers who need to transport people and goods, but who do not want to be branded by managing a minivan.
