The 2008 Ford Edge features a bold design and the flexibility desired in a two-row SUV. It also supplies a roomy interior and generous cargo capacity. The cabin materials, especially on base models, are about as plain as they come, however.
Ford offers the 2008 Edge in three trims: SE, SEL and Limited. Each seats five. All models have a V6 engine paired with a six-speed automatic transmission. Front-wheel drive and all-wheel drive are available.
One year after its debut, the 2008 Ford Edge gains a new connectivity system for phones, MP3 players and USB storage devices. The Limited trim replaces the previous SEL Plus edition.
The Ford Edge has a strong presence, marked by a bright grille. Firm shoulders, flared wheel wells and curved edges draw attention to this SUV’s firm stance.
Standard equipment includes halogen headlamps, power side mirrors, a rear spoiler and 17-inch painted aluminum wheels. Optional features include automatic headlamps, roof rails, a two-panel panoramic glass roof and a power liftgate. Ford also offers a trailer tow package and 18- and 20-inch aluminum wheels.
The Edge’s cabin is spacious, supplying ample room for five adults. The dashboard display has a utilitarian look, with more plastic materials than what we’d like. The front bucket seats are firm, yet comfortable. The passenger seat folds flat. The 60/40-split fold-down rear seat also reclines. Cargo space measures 32.2 cubic feet behind the second-row seat. Fold the rear seat, and the storage space comes in at 69 cubic feet. With the front passenger seat also folded, an 8-foot ladder can fit inside.
Standard equipment includes power windows and door locks, a tilt-and-telescopic steering column and air conditioning. Cloth seats, six cupholders and an overhead console also are included. Optional features include leather seats, dual-zone climate control and a rear cargo management system.
The 2008 Ford Edge offers very good off-the-mark acceleration and robust passing power. The transmission shifts smoothly, although it lacks a manual control feature. A sporty suspension yields a firm, but comfortable, ride. Handling is a strong suit, especially with the all-wheel-drive system present.
Ford equips the 2008 Edge with a 3.5-liter V6 engine. That’s good for 265 horsepower and 250 pound-feet of torque. Power travels to the wheels via a six-speed automatic transmission.
The Ford Edge makes an EPA-estimated 16/24 mpg city/highway. This model has a towing capacity of up to 3,500 pounds, which is average for the segment, which includes SUVs like the Nissan Murano and Jeep Grand Cherokee.
Ford supplies the 2008 Edge with a four-speaker audio system, a CD player and MP3 capability.
Options include an infotainment interface with a USB port and audio input. A nine-speaker audio system, a CD changer, satellite radio, navigation and a rear DVD entertainment system are also available.
