2013 Ford Edge has Improved Yet Again
Updated February 2, 2017
Ford named the Edge appropriately for several reasons. It was Ford’s perfect transition into the crossover market. And as every passing generation of the Ford Edge progresses, the car just keeps getting better. It’s a sharp truck that sells well and its design inside and out is aesthetically pleasing. The 2013 Ford Edge is a perfect example of Ford’s innovations.
The console touch screen system in the cockpit make it easy for hands free phone access as well as navigation and entertainment functions. A truly impressive feature is the customization of the instrument panel through two screens that flank the speedometer. The screen on the right copies all the information displayed in the main screen while the left screen allows the driver to choose whatever information they see relevant to setting their car up. It covers all functions from MyKey to the windshield wipers. The 2013 Ford Edge is also very comfortable ride and comes with all the luxuries you would expect. There is a total of 32.2 cubic feet of cargo space. And when you fold down the rear seat flat that turns into 68.9 cu. ft.
The 2013 Ford Edge is comes with two V6 engine options and a 2.0-litre EcoBoost four-cylinder. With the EcoBoost engine the turbocharged four manages 240hp and 270lb/ft of torque accessible at a reasonably low 3,000 rpm. That’s running at 47 hp more than the 3.5L V6 and the turbocharged motor pushes another 17 lb-ft more torque a full 1,000 rpm sooner. This makes the 2013 Ford Edge a crisp and responsive truck even at a 4056lb curb weight. The Edge can blast from 80-to-120-km/h for passing in 5.5 seconds. And achieving 2.6 gallons per 62miles km in the city, it’s running more efficient than the 3.5L V6. The six speed automatic transmission provides a smooth and comfortable ride.
The only downside to the 2.0 liter EcoBoost engine is that its not included in an all wheel drive package. Which would be nice since it just adds more stability to the 2013 Edge in general. Because of this fact the buyer is forced to decide between the fuel economy of the EcoBoost or the all wheel drive option. And often that decision will be made based on the considerable cost of the all wheel drive.
The 2013 Ford Edge is a crossover tuned for comfort and driving ease. The Edge has improved yet again with the introduction of the 2.0 liter EcoBoost engine. It satisfies the need for power while not putting a ding in your wallet the way a V6 would. The Edge is highly competitive for it’s counterparts and will likely remain that way as long as Ford keeps taking the crossover in the direction it is.
