In this car review, courtesy of the team at Peacock Ford, you can find out. Read up on the Edge's interior space, performance specs, and technology features to decide whether this ride meets your needs. If you want to learn more, just reach out to our friendly team!

2018 Edge: Interior Features

The 2018 Edge is a two-row SUV with space for up to five people inside. Wherever you choose to sit, you'll find plenty of room. Legroom in the front row comes to 42.6 inches, while legroom in the rear sits at 40.6 inches, providing ample space to stretch out.

In fact, rear passengers get their own reclining seatbacks, so they can enjoy the same level of comfort as front-row occupants. Also, the available cooled front seats can come in handy during those hot and humid summers in central Florida. 

Behind the backseat, you'll find an impressive 39.2 cubic feet of cargo volume, which is enough space to fit up to 12 pieces of carry-on luggage. Fold the EasyFold rear seatbacks with the push of a button, and you'll get a massive 73.4 cubic feet, perfect for hauling furniture and more. 

Engine Performance Specs 

With three powerful engines to choose from in the 2018 Ford Edge, you have plenty of ways to customize your powertrain performance. Let's take a closer look at what's available:

  • 2.0L EcoBoost® 4-cylinder,good for 245 horsepower and 275 lb-ft of torque. 
  • 3.5L V6, with 280 horsepower and 250 lb-ft under the hood.
  • 2.7L EcoBoost®V6, delivering a robust 315 horsepower and 350 lb-ft of torque. 

You're in good hands with any of these engines, but the available EcoBoost®V6 in the Edge Sport will give you the sportiest ride and the best acceleration for merging and passing on the highway. 

If you're wondering whether the Edge is up for towing a boat or jet ski to the Florida coasts, you're in luck: It has a max towing capacity of 3,500 pounds when equipped with the Class II Trailer Tow Package. You'll be safer out on the road with Trailer Sway Control, helping you tow confidently and keeping your trailer under control. 

Advanced Technology Features 

One of our favorite features in the 2018 Edge is the Panoramic Vista Roof®, which stretches across both rows of seats and has many functions and uses. If your car's been sitting out in that hot Florida sun all day, you can tilt the glass panel up to let the hot air escape. You can also open it fully and experience the natural sunlight and fresh air.

Inside the cabin, the available SYNC®3 infotainment system will keep you well connected. Even the base system can link your smartphone and understand voice commands, but SYNC®3 takes it up a notch with an 8-inch touchscreen, plus Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™, so you can use even more smartphone apps.
