2022 Ford Edge Review
SUVs dominate the current Ford lineup. This is a good thing for anyone around Cullman, Jasper, and Fayette, AL, seeking space, capability, and performance. The important part of shopping for your next SUV is determining which Ford best fits your daily requirements. Our various Ford reviews, such as this 2022 Ford Edge review, will shed some light on the topic.
The Edge sits in the middle of the Ford SUV lineup, smaller than the Explorer yet larger than the EcoSport or Escape. At Bill Penney Ford, we’ve taken the time to break down important aspects of this 2022 model!
2022 Ford Edge Performance
At the base trim level, the Ford Edge is a punchy and comfortable SUV that you can easily use for commuting, road trips, or running errands around town. If the thought of extra performance thrills you, though, you can also look to the hardcore Ford Edge ST trim for a bigger motor.
The standard engine is a twin-scroll 2.0L EcoBoost® 4-cylinder making 250 horsepower and 280 lb-ft of torque. An 8-speed automatic transmission changes gears for you. The result is a properly efficient SUV reaching an EPA-estimated 21 city and 28 highway MPG.
The alternative is stepping up to the 2.7L EcoBoost® twin-turbocharged engine of the loaded ST trim. With this trim, your SUV pumps out 335 horsepower and 380 lb-ft of torque. A 7-speed automatic transmission can now be found, while fuel economy checks in at an EPA-estimated 19 city and 25 highway MPG.
2022 Ford Edge Interior Outlay
An SUV like the Ford Edge isn’t going to be all that helpful if it doesn’t offer a roomy and customizable interior. Thankfully, Ford went to great lengths to ensure the Edge will accommodate your ever-changing needs.
Behind the second row of seats, the 2022 Edge can support 39.2 cubic feet of cargo. If you don’t plan on having anyone sit in the second row, you can fold those seats flat to access a maximum of 73.4 cubic feet of space.
The total passenger volume is a robust 113.9 cubic feet, which is more than enough room for the maximum passenger capacity of five. If you have a tall family, you’ll also be glad to see how much space the seats offer:
- 40.2 inches of front headroom
- 40.3 inches of rear headroom
- 42.6 inches of front legroom
- 40.6 inches of rear legroom
You won’t have any issues fitting individuals’ side-by-side, either. The front hip room measures 55.9 inches, while the front shoulder room is 60.3 inches. In the back, hip room checks in at 57.5 inches and shoulder room is a generous 60.5 inches.
2022 Ford Edge: Roomy and Fun to Drive
If practicality is all you’re after, the 2022 Edge fits the bill. It can easily transport you and your friends or family around the Jasper, Cullman, and Fayette, Alabama, communities.
For those seeking a little more thrill, though, we encourage a test drive of the Ford Edge ST with its howling twin-turbocharged V6 engine. This SUV is available at our Bill Penney Ford dealership in case you want to stop by!
