Most people prefer to have a magnificent car, even if they don’t travel far or necessarily need one. For many in Chicago, the act of buying a new or pre-owned vehicle is a sign of financial stability. You probably have a budget, but that doesn’t mean you have to get a clunker. The Ford Edge is a beautiful and athletic vehicle that seats five adults comfortably. Pair that with a quiet and smooth ride and you’ve got the perfect way to travel long or short distances.

Engines

If you choose the 2017 Edge, you have three engine styles. The 2.0L and 2.7L EcoBoost engine give you plenty of horsepower and torque without being too hard on the gas tank. The smaller EcoBoost engine gets up to 29/21mpg on the highway and in the city while the larger EcoBoost engine gets slightly less.

You can also find a 3.5L V6 engine with a variable camshaft timing feature that ensures you get all the horsepower you need without sacrificing the vehicle’s efficiency.

All engines come with auto start-stop, which reduces fuel consumption while driving in the city. The system shuts its engine off when you stop completely and restarts seamlessly when you take your foot off the brake. Therefore, when you’re in stop-and-go traffic, you can save fuel and reduce your carbon footprint.

Technology

While it’s usually unnecessary, most newer vehicles have a ton of technology inside because it’s what the people want. The Edge is no different, and it comes with Siri Integration, a voice-activated navigational system, and the ability to use your voice to turn on favorite mobile applications from your vehicle.

The Ford Edge is a stylish crossover between a sedan and an SUV. Visit Hawk Ford near Chicago at https://www.hawkford.com to learn more. Like us on our facebook page.
