If you’re in the market for a midsize five-passenger SUV, the team at Stivers Ford of Birmingham would love to introduce you to the 2023 Ford Edge that is now available through our Ford dealership serving drivers in and near Hoover Bessemer Vestavia Hills Huntsville. The new model continues the second Edge generation but arrives with a number of notable changes, including a shakeup of the trim selection, more standard equipment with all trim levels and a greater selection of optional features.
The 2023 Ford Edge is a four-door crossover with a rear liftgate. The overall length is about 15.75 feet, and the ground clearance is 8 inches. The base model has LED headlamps and 18-inch alloy wheels and is available with an optional Black Appearance package. The SEL is available with an Adventure package that dresses up the exterior. The ST-Line has 20-inch wheels and a sportier appearance package exclusive to the ST models. The Titanium has 19-inch wheels and a hands-free liftgate, and the ST, which is similar to the ST-Line, adds even more body-colored trim.
When Ford originally introduced the Edge, midsize two-row crossovers weren’t common in the marketplace, but it’s been among the fastest-growing segments ever since. The 2023 Ford Edge seats up to five. It provides about 40 inches of headroom in both rows. Front legroom is more than 42 inches. Second-row legroom is more than 40 inches and thus roomy enough to accommodate adults comfortably, and the dedicated cargo area impresses at more than 39 cubic feet. The base package includes dual-zone automatic climate control, a 12-inch touch screen and a six-speaker audio system. The SEL adds synthetic leather seating, heated and power-adjustable front seats and more robust audio system, and the Titanium adds genuine leather seating, B&O audio and a wireless charging pad.
Keyless open and push-button ignition are standard with the 2023 Ford Edge in Birmingham. Remote start and a 110-volt household-style power outlet are optional with the SEL and become standard with the Titanium. The ST features a sport suspension, and if you opt for the ST Performance Brake package, it gets performance brakes with improved cooling and summer tires.
All-wheel drive is standard across the board. Most models have an eight-speed automatic transmission mated to a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine: 250 horsepower and 280 pound-feet of torque. The exception is the ST available at Stivers Ford of Birmingham. It has seven-speed automatic transmission mated to a turbocharged 2.7-liter V6: 335 hp and 380 lb.-ft.
A 12-inch infotainment touch screen, rearview camera system, automatic headlamp and high-beam control, frontal collision warning with automatic braking, lane keeping, blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic warning and rear parking sensors are all standard with the base model. Starting with the SEL trim level, Ford’s SecuriCode entry keypad is standard, and you have the option of Ford Co-Pilot360 Assist+, which adds integrated navigation, adaptive cruise control and evasive steering assist. The Titanium adds front parking sensors. It also gives you the option of the Lux package, which includes the Ford Co-Pilot360 Assist+ suite but also adds an automated parking system and a front-facing camera.
