As is usually the case, the features you get with the 2008 Ford Edge depend on how much extra you want to pay. TheCarConnection.com found most reviewers to be impressed with the options that the Ford 2008 Edge offers.

Cars.com reports that "there are three Edge trim levels: SE, SEL and SEL Plus." Car and Driver points out that "as with so many makers, options are tied to the model...and SE buyers get a limited menu of choices." The available choices for this 2008 Ford's base model include a six-disc in-dash changer, a backup sensor, and the SYNC entertainment and communications system. This source notes that "perversely, you can only get the navigation system in concert with the sunroof," and comments that the top-of-the-line Ford Edge 2008 Limited "is already as well equipped as the average army base, so options are limited."

According to Cars.com, in 2008, "Ford's new SYNC hands-free system, a joint venture with Microsoft...allows drivers to control Bluetooth-enabled mobile phones and MP3 players with steering-wheel buttons and voice commands"--not a bad thing for today's drivers who cannot take a moment away from their cell phone conversations.

Other optional equipment for the 2008 Ford Edge "includes a DVD-based navigation system that for 2008 adds voice-control, Sirius Satellite Radio and a backseat DVD entertainment system that includes a flip-down, 8-inch screen and wireless headphones," while ConsumerGuide reports that for 2008, Ford offers "a power closing feature for the tailgate" as an optional upgrade.

Conclusion

The 2008 Ford Edge offers the cutting-edge entertainment options like its big sibling, the Flex—including SYNC.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
