Things You Need to Know Before Buying a Ford Edge


The Ford Edge is one of the most popular SUVs on the market. It has an affordable price tag and a lot to offer in terms of space, features, and safety. But before you buy one, it's important to know what is included in your price. The Ford Edge starts at $32,500 for the base model and has a lot of features that are available as add-ons or upgrades. You may be thinking about buying some of these options but need to make sure they're worth it, given how much they cost. Be sure to keep reading this article for some important things you should know about before buying a Ford Edge.


What You Should Know

The Ford Edge is a crossover SUV that can accommodate up to five passengers and has the benefits of being both stylish, comfortable, and capable while also offering some great safety features. Here are some of the features that you may love:

 

The Ford Edge comes in three trim levels: SE, Titanium, and Sport. You can choose the level that is right for you depending on factors such as price, features, and size of the SUV. 

Safety features include standard front-seat side airbags along with a driver knee airbag; head restraints at all seating positions to help minimise whiplash in a rear-end collision; and the Ford’s Personal Safety System which includes a knee blocker, an energy-absorbing steering column to help reduce whiplash with frontal impacts; front seat belts that also have pretensioners as well. 

The Ford Edge offers a SYNC infotainment system that includes voice control, Bluetooth for phone operation, and hands-free streaming audio. You can connect your smartphone to the car’s display screen with an HDMI cable or USB cord, allowing you to use it before getting in the vehicle or via the included 12 V power outlet on the center console. 

The Ford Edge is available with two engine options: a standard 292 horsepower, 240 pound-foot of torque turbocharged four-cylinder, or an optional 355 hp and 350 lb.-ft. of torque twin-turbo V-six engine. The SE model has a lower output but includes all the same safety features as the more expensive higher-end models. 

For the top-level Titanium trim, you get a 20-inch wheel package with adaptive suspension. The Sport model also has this option, and it comes standard with 19” wheels. 


A special point to the Edge is if your family is constantly transporting a lot of equipment, cargo, or passengers around town and long distances, then the Edge may be the best choice. The Ford Edge towing capacity is suitable for most of these functions. It is great if you don’t want a truck but would still like to have deceit towing capacity. This can be a major deciding factor for most buyers.



Things to Know When Buying A New Car 

There are some general things you should know when purchasing a new vehicle. You don’t want to shop blind so it’s important to have as much information as you can before you step foot on a car lot. Ask yourself what your priorities in a vehicle are: how many people will be driving it daily; is safety important to you? What do you want to be able to haul? The more people, the bigger the engine size you'll need. Safety is important for everyone and varies by vehicle make/model. The highest safety ratings are usually awarded in government crash tests such as those administered by NHTSA or IIHS (Insurance Institute of Highway Safety). The right vehicle for you will depend on what you haul or how many people are driving. If you're a family of four that primarily uses the vehicle for commuting, errands, and short commutes on an everyday basis then this might be the right vehicle. 


Some Questions To Ask Yourself 

These are some questions you’ll need to go over with yourself whether you’re buying now or in a few months. It’s good to have clear answers to these questions to help the process move more smoothly. What is my price range? Do I want to buy new or used? How do I find the best possible deal in my price range? What are the pros and cons of leasing a vehicle? If you're buying used, what do you need to know about potential hidden problems with a pre-owned vehicle? What should I know about my state's emissions laws, if any? How do I find the right car for my lifestyle?



So, what are you waiting for? You can find the Ford Edge of your dreams by answering these questions and more. No matter if you want to buy new or used, lease a vehicle, or if you decide to go for another vehicle, or get an American car from another country such as Germany or import a car from Japan; there is something on the market for you and you can use the information to help. If safety is a priority for you, don’t forget to ask about the car’s National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) crash test ratings. If it has not been tested, then look up its Insurance Institute of Highway Safety (IIHS) safety rating.
