When our friends in Bismarck come into Eide Ford Lincoln looking for the top crossover, we are proud to present to them Ford’s 2018 Edge. Offered up in four different models, this new crossover easily merges utility and reliability into an alluring and complete package.
There are three motor choices to choose from with the latest edition of the Edge, which proves that you can tailor this leading crossover to perfectly suit your unique requirements. The 2.0 liter (L) EcoBoost I-4 gives you a chance to make use of 245 horsepower (hp) and 275 pound-feet (lb-ft) of torque. The 3.5 L Twin Independent Variable Camshaft Timing (Ti-VCT) V6 produces 280 hp and 250 lb-ft of torque. Additionally, the 2.7 EcoBoost V6 gives you a noteworthy 315 hp and 350 lb-ft of torque.
The Edge's fuel effectiveness is nothing to laugh at either. Every one of the three motor packages listed above enjoys sterling fuel efficiency evaluations, with the 2.0 L EcoBoost I-4 leading the way at 20 miles for each gallon (mpg) spent driving on Bismarck's avenues, 29 mpg while cruising Bismarck FL's expressways, and 24 mpg combined.
Just because the Edge falls into the crossover category, that does not mean that it is not prepared to own work. The Class II Trailer Tow Prep Package (accessible on the SEL and Titanium models) with trailer sway control gives you a towing ability of up to 3,500 pounds (lbs). Should whatever you are towing begin to shift or move, this handy tool will either drop motor torque or correctly apply the brakes as needed to guarantee that you never lose control of your haul.
Many individuals pick crossovers since they need more space than what comes with a traditional vehicle. With this in mind, the 2018 Edge gives you a copious amount of space for both other passengers and your cargo. Payload volume (with the back row of seats folded down) is a roomy 73.4 cubic feet. If you have the back seats up, this number still clocks in at an outstanding 39.2 cubic feet.
Like the rest of Ford's other 2018 vehicles, the new Edge also places a big priority on advanced safety tools and features. The Blind Spot Information System (BLIS) can identify any vehicle entering the unseen areas around your crossover through radar located in the back quarter panels. In the event that something does move into your blind spot, you will receive a notification via your rear-view mirror. The versatile cruise control, which has a forward crash warning tool (complete with a brake support system), gives you a chance to set the amount of separation you prefer with the vehicle in front of you as you drive the streets of Bismarck. Should the vehicle in front of you reduce its speed, this system will slow down as well to ensure the gap between cars remains the same.
The inside of the 2018 Edge likewise is full of noteworthy innovation. A 4.2-inch LCD screen in the middle stack is standard, with an 8-inch LCD Capacitive touchscreen serving as an optional upgrade. The bigger touchscreen provides access to the SYNC 3, AppLink, and 911 Assist tools, in addition to two USB charging ports.

With the ability to program various modes of driving and restrictions by key, you will have all the tools you need to keep each member of your driving family safe as they make their way around Bismarck.
Ford's Edge clearly goes well beyond the rest of the crossover marketplace, giving you awesome utility and style without trading off other facets of your driving experience. This means that if you are searching for a vehicle that can be both flexible and fun, the 2018 Edge is for you.
