Live From The L.A. Auto Show: Save Bucks With The Ford Edge!

Published Dec 6th 2006, 8:03pm by Jody DeVere in Featured Articles

07fordedgecuv_1 We all like saving a little cash, and the new 2007 Ford Edge will help you do just that. This not-so-little-it-is-tiny-but-not-so-big-it-is-a-monster crossover vehicle has a lot to offer and might not be quite what you would expect from a Ford.

It has great style. Just look at that grill and the beautiful lines. It looks like an SUV instead of a minivan-SUV mush, like many crossovers do. It caught our eye while we were listening to the Ford announcement about their commitment to energy diversity (it is the buzz phrase at the show this year). Instead of listening completely to the press announcement, we walked over to look closer at the Edge.

It’s interior looks much nicer than some of the smaller Ford SUVs and the dash looks more grownup. The top-of-the-line version has a cream stitching in the dark leather seats which adds a really rich look to it. And the center column with all the radio and A/C functions are pushed forward, making it really easy to reach while driving.

07edgelaunch_0174We haven’t driven it, but all the reviews are saying it has some scoot as well! That never hurts when you are trying to merge onto freeways while loaded down with kids, pets, kid and pet accessories, and all the other things you carry around with you. Oh, and it has 6 cup holders. We also learned that this vehicle offers all of the great safety features you all love as a standard feature. Yay! No more optioning in airbags! Finally, someone gets it!

Ferrari showcased a gorgeous red tote that looks like it could be used as a laptop bag or even a superbly stylish diaper bag. Mercedes Benz was showing off teddy bears next to their Harvey’s seat belt bags in red and black.
