It has been a favorite the whole of Oklahoma over since 2007. Now, it has caught on here in the Seminole area. It's true: when it comes to capability, safety, accommodations, and technology, the mid-size Ford Edge SUV is hard to beat. Enthusiasts of the latest crossover will give you plenty of reasons for it, too.

They'll be quick to note its performance, for one. It's one of the more powerful and confident sport utility vehicles out there. Both its engine options are twin-turbocharged, balancing high efficiency and adrenalized thrills. Trims like Edge SE, SEL, and Titanium, for instance, feature a 250-horsepower, 2.0-liter EcoBoost putting out 280 pound-feet of torque, while Edge ST builds in a workhorse 335-horsepower, 2.7-liter V6 shelling 380. Headed for parts unknown or cruising the highway, each offers an enjoyable ride that goes the distance.

Secondly, they'll probably tell you how economical with fuel the SUV is. They're not stretching there. Its engines mate with an eight-speed auto transmission that's got a new rotary e-shifter dial for ease of use. That means EPA-estimated mileage up to 22 mpg in the city, 29 mpg across highways, and 25 mpg combined -- and fewer trips to the pump here in central Oklahoma.

Furthermore, Edge is a prime example of the Ford commitment to driving security. Intelligent All-Wheel Drive is available to help tack through the thick of bad weather and worse roadways. We bet you'll appreciate it coming standard in the ST trim. What's more, there's a new Ford Co-Pilot360 system available to deliver comprehensive protection from your driveway to the unbeaten path and back again. It's improved upon only by the availability of post-collision braking. The takeaway: ultimate peace of mind.

Of course, Edge is also simultaneously exceedingly comfortable for longer trips and tech-savvy, too. A selection of cloth, leather-trimmed, or perforated leather seats can take on as many as five passengers. Seating is power-adjustable in as many as ten ways for the driver, six ways for the front passenger, and available heated, both up front and in the back. Choose between SYNC and SYNC 3 infotainment systems, the latter with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto for smartphone integration, to remain in control of your entertainment for the duration. The SUV's even great for cargo. Collapse its rear seating with the EasyFold release, and you can make use of up to 73.4 cubic feet, accessible using an available hands-free power liftgate. You can even trailer with an available Class II tow prep package.

The best thing about the new Ford Edge, however, is the experience. That's one best had firsthand. If you're eager to check it out for yourself, give us a call or stop by Seminole Ford today.
