Tuning the untunable? H&R takes it to the Edge

When we think of tuning potential, the Ford Edge doesn't immediately spring to mind. We've driven it. We like it. But it doesn't strike us as the perfect platform for a dump and dubs. H&R disagrees, and after last year's showing at SEMA, they've put together a comprehensive package for Ford's newest CUV that is almost a direct carryover from the concept shown in Vegas.

The kit includes a two-inch drop courtesy of the company's Sport Springs, along with a set of Trak+ wheel spacers that bring 22x10-inch OZ Giotti three-piece rollers to the very edges of acceptability. Judging by the dead-cat gap between the Pirelli Scorpion Zeros and the fender, we think they could have gone for 24s with minimal fuss.

Beyond the retina-damaging orange hue, black hood, ghost flame-style airbrushed lightening and restyled lower front fascia, the H&R Edge remains relatively stock. Fine by us, since the original's looks are good enough straight from the factory.
