What We Drove
Our test car was a front-wheel drive 2007 Ford Edge SEL Plus. Base price for this model is $29,745 including the $675 destination charge. Options add up quickly: The navigation system is $2,380, the rear entertainment system is $1,295 and the big 18-inch wheels were $395. Other options included the Class-II towing package for $350, a reverse sensing system for $245 and Sirius satellite radio for $195. Add everything together (including the $75 floor mats and $65 cargo management system) and you have $34,745 of Ford crossover.
