Oh...that would certainly not be what I would pay either. Not even close.

Oh I'm certain of it my friend. The whole price / value thing is boggling my mind. In fact, I'm considering leasing next time just so I can give it back in 3 years.

$48k is nuts. I just priced a base model 2014 Edge, oxford white, with cargo package options, on Edmunds. Sticker was $29.3k. Market price after $1k rebate is $27,914, which is about where I thought it would land. I have a lot of Ford employee connections in Detroit, so I'm guessing I could get AWD and keep it under $30k. Who the heck would pay almost twice that for a bunch of optional equipment that would have NO bearing on helping you arrive at your actual destination? Is anyone saving money for retirement or emergencies? (I am already retired, and spent my life in the pension plan business, which drives my focus toward "cost per mile"...)

Good luck,
George

Certainly right about that. I just bought my F350 drw lariat, fully loaded for only 36K. It stickered for 63K.

We just traded in our 2007 Edge SEL with 85K miles and the only thing we had to replace was the battery twice and the brake boost slave.

The power was still there and it had not one rattle. We just ran out of extended warranty in October and I wasn't taking a risk.

We started out looking at the Limited and ended up with a 2013 Edge Sport with the 3.7 and 22" wheels. I gotta say I'm very impressed so far...even beyond the last one.

My brother-in-law was a Dodge DieHard and after he drove my wife's Edge he bought one for his wife.

Lincoln has like three trim levels and that is it. Plus the nice vista roof.

we just like the interior better.
We came close to buying a 2013 MKX Demo with every option available but there was just something missing for the price. Like I could have bought the Explorer.

We did end up with the Edge Sport for a real steal and saved $5K. It just came together better and the handling is what we like.

The Lincoln is quieter and the leather is definitely nicer and cooled seats etc...

Good review. I certainly can see why the Edge would be attractive.

Mom paid 40K for her 2012 AWD Limited Edge. Very happy with it.

Just turned odometer to 100k and it's still solid and wife loves it. I'm thinking new plugs and tranny fluid change.
