2013 Ford Edge Exterior
In the competitive crossover SUV segment, its important to put forth your best foot in order to impress consumers. The 2013 Ford Edge does just that with soft lines and a curvaceous body that creates a modern silhouette. A prominent chrome grille adds to this modern feel, highlighting the Edge’s blunt nose and cat-eye-like headlights.
2013 Ford Edge Performance
Depending on the Edge model you choose, there are three different engines available. A 3.5-liter V6 is the standard power source, producing 285 horsepower and 253 lb-ft of torque. Standard with this engine is a six-speed automatic transmission and front-wheel-drive, though all-wheel-drive is an option.
For all models but the Ford Edge Sport, a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder EcoBoost engine is optional, generating 240 hp and 270 lb-ft of torque. This option is only available with a six-speed automatic and front-wheel-drive, though.
