The 2017 Ford Edge is one of the brand’s biggest sellers in the SUV category. Everything about this vehicle shows its capability and reliability, no matter where you have to go or for how long. With the 2017 Ford Edge, you’re promised a smooth and safe ride to ensure not only your safety, but the safety of others on the road and in the car.

One of the best part of the Ford Edge is that it can carry up to 3500 pounds, so it can definitely bring you wherever you need to go.

You also don’t have to worry about it overheating because it can carry you and your passengers pretty much anywhere!

When it comes to safety, you can’t get much better than this. The Ford Edge has ranked with top-tiered results in nearly every test, except for the IIHS small-overlap frontal test. This test determines how a car will perform if being hit with a full frontal force; for example, a head-on collision with another car. Other than this mishap, the vehicle is equipped with plenty of other safety measures; for example, an airbag is mounted in the glovebox so that the passenger’s knees are protected if an accident occurs. The car also has LED headlights and parking assistance to ensure the best possible circumstances so that you, your passengers, and your family have the opportunity to get to your destination – and back – safely.

The main complaint about the Ford Edge resides in both the lack of seats and the short amount of space for the passengers in the second row of seating. While this may be annoying, you children probably don’t have very long legs, so you don’t have to worry about this too much. However if you have a large family, the Ford Expedition might be the better choice.

Overall, the 2017 Ford Edge fairs better than most SUVs in regards to performance. It has two hundred and forty-five horsepower, along with a turbocharged 2.0-liter inline-4. For those who don’t know what that means, the 2.0-liter inline-4 is an extremely popular and respected engine. Not only this, but all of the Ford Edge engines happen to be 6-speed automatics.

If you’re looking for an SUV that will fare well under long drives and with multiple passengers that you’ve come to the best place. The Ford Edge is the best SUV for working moms, especially those who commute for long durations of time, then you’re in the right place because the 2017 Ford SUV is the best on the market.  If you don’t mind the missing third row and less space for your feet in the second row, then head on over to the dealership to find the best Ford Edge for your needs.

Western Washington is experiencing heavy flooding for the second year in a row. Unfortunately, in addition to houses, many people will find their cars damaged by the floods. Nothing is more damaging than a vehicle than flood water. The water soaks through any gap, weakens and destroys any gasket, destroys your interior, and makes the car stink. Not to mention, a flood can also brand the title of your vehicle.

It usually takes hundreds if not thousands of dollars of dollars to make a flood car road worthy again, and all the work you are having done is going to a vehicle with a flood title. That title, just like a salvage title, instantly lowers the value of your vehicle by at least half.
