2007 Edge Overview

The advent of the crossover is fully upon us, so much so that no one even snickers at the name anymore. After all, SUVs have become persona non grata to many buyers thanks to their thirsty nature in a world where "cheap gas" is a phrase that seems quaint. That said, people still like the other stuff their trucks offered, like a high riding position, all-wheel-drive, room for kids and pets, plus the capacity to haul everything from groceries to bags of mulch. Of course, minivans offered this level of utility already, but some people's aversion to them (due to perceived lameness and other reasons) has brought us to where we stand today. The crossover will do battle with the van to become the new king of the family cars, and Ford has stepped right up to the plate with a solid player in the Edge. %Gallery-4424% The Edge is here at a time when the bread-and-butter Explorer is seeing sales tank and the Freestar minivan has gone, unlamented, to the big junkyard in the sky. So, there's obviously an opportunity here and with Edge, Ford's looking to make the most of it. Our tester was a loaded-to-the-gills Edge SEL Plus AWD, and it made friends and influenced people during its stay. The Edge draws you in with its excellent exterior styling. Not oversized but not small in any sense, the CUV's appearance is contemporary and pleasing to the eye -- a success from front to back. The short overhangs, bulging fenders and rakish glass angles fore and aft give it an athletic, muscular stance. There's nothing shy about how this people-mover presents itself to onlookers. The Redfire clearcoat finish didn't hurt, either, as the pretty color really stood out no matter where the car was parked. The nose features the best implementation of the automaker's three-bar corporate grille, a formidable swath of chrome with a big blue oval in the middle that proves Ford hasn't exhausted the world's supply of the shiny stuff with the '07 Navigator. Immediately below the grille, a pair of secondary openings help the Edge breathe while also breaking up the substantial amount of real estate in front. The headlamps feature stubby little wraparound offshoots that house the indicators and side markers, and a set of foglights in bright metallic housings add some zip to the otherwise blacked-out lower fascia. Studying the Edge from the side illustrates how small the front and rear overhangs really are. Despite its role as a paved-roads-only machine, this gives it a rough-and-tumble look that some SUVs would be glad to have (we're talking to you, Explorer). Ford keeps Edge from looking overly slab-sided by employing flared fenders that seamlessly merge into an accent bulge running the length of the doors and by blacking out the rocker panels. Optional 18" chrome wheels look good, add sparkle and fill the wheel wells nicely. They do add $750 onto the sticker price, though. The standard-equipment 17s eschew the bling, but are stylish …
