Just picked up my '13 Edge. Kodiak brown, Limited. It has the 3.5 V6 with lots of bells and whistles. The only option I think I missed was AWD. Because we get so little snow, and the streets are always salted and plowed, I declined one with that feature. For those days, I have a restored 1984 Nissan 720 KC 5 sp with 4wd and Warn winch.
The Mysynch is great, if not a little intimidating. I had a Fusion with Synch, so I'm kind of used to it. I love the navigation system.
Fit and finish seem to be really good. I read that the '14 Edge may not have a V6 option, so I pulled the trigger on the '13 to be sure I got one. Had a 4 cyl in the Fusion. While econ was good, it was a little sluggish. Once it got rolling, it was fine. My wife has an '09 Escape with the 3.0 V6 and automatic. 50,000 and just got the second set of tires. Absolutely trouble free vehicle.
Hope everyone has a great Independence Day. Thank you to all our Veterans who have given their services for the preservation of our freedoms.
My mom picked up a 2012 Edge with the Ecoboost. There is nothing sluggish about it... So far it has been a good vehicle to have. Gets mid to upper 20's regularly. I took it to an interview Friday so I could have working air and cruise, was a pretty nice drive. Have to pay attention to your speed, it will get away from you pretty fast. Cruise is very much needed to keep from going well over the speed limit...
