Ford Edge by H&R

Illustration for article titled Ford Edge by H&R

Getting the tuner and customization set to see the Ford Edge as a subject worth messing with will take some effort, though the idea isn't the worst one. The latest is this tuner Edge, made over by suspension supplier H&R to showcase its sport springs, wheel spacers, camber adjustment bolts and other such aftermarket suspension kit. Of course, the Edge could use a bit of lowering, and a bit more taut feel for our own taste, formed by years of riding a scant few inches from the ground. The Edge benefits from a lower stance and more rubber, which gives its oddball geometry a squat muscularity. And somehow, the Edge looks best in a shade of orange, whether this searing Gemballa tint or Ford's own "Blazing Copper" metallic. The kids may not race to get on board, but we'll give it a pound. At least.

I haven't been inside one, but I like the looks of the Edge. Simple utility in a non-testosteroned package. What I don't like is the price or the lack of 4WD, and the mileage is kinda sucky. bAnd I'm sure if I got inside there would be other things I didn't like.
