Despite having all-wheel drive, we do not consider the new Ford Edge 2.0 TDCI 210 hp as a genuine all-rounder, but as a large SUV, inter alia by low ground clearance and mounted tires that come standard in this finish Sport (255/45 R20). 170 mm. separating the central silent soil seem to have few a lot of freedom out of the asphalt. This nuance is clear, when you drive the new Ford Edge on winding roads. Share a very dynamic tuning with siblings of range, in fact, despite its size and weight, Swinging is not excessive and "live" rear axle reminds us, relatively speaking, to the Ford Focus.
