The Ford Edge returns for 2009 with a few more features than it boasted last year, and the latest additions should prove incredibly useful. This is just the latest step in Ford's recent emphasis on improving its features offerings, and reviews read by TheCarConnection.com appreciate the effort.

The standard features on the 2009 Ford Edge vary significantly across the trim levels, but the base Ford Edge SE doesn't scream "low-end" like some base models. ConsumerGuide reports that the Ford Edge SE includes full power accessories and an "AM/FM/CD/MP3 player, digital-media player connection," and "variable-intermittent wipers." They also note that the Ford Edge SEL adds a "leather-wrapped steering wheel w/radio controls, 6-way power driver seat," and "in-dash 6-disc CD/MP3 changer," as well as "satellite radio." The Limited model is even more luxurious, and Car and Driver says that it is "already as well equipped as the average army base," offering standard heated leather seats, dual-zone climate controls, an upgraded sound system, and Bluetooth wireless connectivity.

The optional features on the 2009 Ford Edge are very desirable, but Car and Driver points out that "options are tied to the model," meaning that they're not all available on every trim level. For example, Cars.com notes that the "optional voice-activated navigation system" and "dual-screen DVD entertainment system with screens integrated into headrests" are not available on the SE version of the Ford Edge. One of the standout features found on the new Ford Edge, according to Cars.com, is the "SYNC hands-free system, a joint venture with Microsoft...[that] allows drivers to control Bluetooth-enabled mobile phones and MP3 players with steering-wheel buttons and voice commands." Another headline addition for 2009 is the optional Sirius Travel Link, which Automotive.com says will give "drivers and passengers access to up-to-the-minute information and entertainment including coast-to-coast coverage of real-time traffic and weather reports" and "fuel options from more than 120,000 stations sorted by price and distance."

Conclusion

The 2009 Ford Edge brings high-tech amenities to the masses; to get some of them, you’ll have to pay a considerably higher price.

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.
