Focusing on Maximum Comfort - The 2021 Ford Edge
The 2021 Ford Edge is a mid-size SUV that, instead of overextending itself with three rows of seats, focuses on providing maximum space and comfort for five passengers in two rows. With an accommodating cabin and a smooth and quiet ride, this SUV makes the right choice by prioritizing the comfort of its driver and passengers.
The 2021 Ford Edge is a sharp-looking, well-equipped SUV, but it faces stiff competition in its class from rivals such as the Honda Passport, Hyundai Santa Fe, and Chevy Blazer. However, it offers punchy acceleration and adept handling that leave most competitors in the dust. While the Edge is not as updated some other Ford models, it received numerous updates for the 2021 model year.
The focus of the 2021 model year update was on infotainment with the inclusion of a much larger, 12.0-inch touchscreen display and an upgrade to the latest Sync 4 infotainment operating system. Other areas of the vehicle were updated as well. Outside, each model received new wheel designs for 2021, and two new gray colours were added as choices for buyers. Rear parking sensors also became standard, and acoustic-laminated glass was added to the front side windows for extra sound deadening.
Nicely chosen materials are plentiful throughout the cabin, along with a clean fit and finish attention to detail. The interior is all about comfort, and the Edge is plenty spacious for four adults. This allows the SUV to be multi-talented--working easily for one or more for short commutes or long road trips.
The 2021 Ford Edge might be older than some of its rivals, but it has aged well. The curved body and sloping roof line are still stylish, and the new wheel designs add even more style to the vehicle. The Edge offers an athletic and confident stance thanks to its body, grille, hood, and wheels.
Drivers looking for an SUV that can overpower its rivals and zip quickly in and out of traffic, the 2021 Ford Edge is the right choice. The base engine is a turbocharged four-cylinder that delivers 250 horsepower, which is more than enough power for most drivers.
For drivers wanting more pep, the Edge ST upgrades the engine to a 335-horsepower twin-turbocharged 2.7-litre V6 with standard all-wheel drive. Both versions of the Edge react well to driver actions and offer a comfortable ride even over imperfect road surfaces.
A massive, 12.0-inch vertically oriented touchscreen is the focal point of the cabin, completely changing the Edge's look from the previous model year. The latest Sync 4 software interface adds wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, along with a Wi-Fi hotspot.
The 2021 Ford Edge has been recognized as a leader in safety technology, thanks in part to it coming standard with Ford's Co-Pilot360 driver-assist features. Automated emergency braking, blind-spot monitoring, automatic high-beam headlamps, rearview camera, lane-keeping assist, and more come standard to keep all occupants safe inside the Edge.
The 2021 Ford Edge gets solid reviews with its accommodating interior, high quality features, and smooth and quiet ride. It is a great choice for drivers in Winnipeg to test drive at River City Ford.
