Ford Edge Auto Shipping
The Ford Edge was introduced by the Ford Motor Company in 2006 and, to this date, has won multiple awards for its engine, interior/exterior designs, fuel efficiency and safety. It is a crossover-SUV, smaller than the Explorer but larger than most smaller cars. The current Edge comes in four separate models, with the base SE costing $27,525 and the highest-end model, the Sport, coming in at $37,110. The SEL and the Limited come in at $31,080 and $34,940 MSRP, respectively. This is important to note as the SE is much cheaper than each other model, showcasing Ford’s desire to make vehicles cost as little as possible, going along with the Ford Motor Company’s original idea of putting a car in every person’s driveway. Each model features a host of different features, but the good thing for auto shipping customers is that the size of each model is roughly the same; the Sport is a bit larger, but not by much, so you shouldn’t have any problems with your auto shipping company in that regard.
The SE features a 3.5L Ti-VCT V6 engine, cloth-trimmed seats, single-zone air conditioning, the MyFord Touch system with a 4.2″ display. It’s the cheapest for a reason – it doesn’t come with all the cool bells and whistles that its more expensive brothers do, but under the hood it does what it needs to do. The SEL comes with the same engine and MyFord Touch system but also with dual-zone automatic temperature control, a reverse sensing system and a six-way powered drivers seat. The Limited features a heated power driver’s seat, a cool Sony audio system, the MyFord Touch system and the Sync platform, an SD card reader with audio and video jacks and some other cool stuff. The Sport, the most expensive model, features a more powerful 3.7L V6, 6-speed SelectShift automatic transmission, and just about everything you get on the Limited to boot, plus some cool exterior additions.
When it comes to getting auto shipping services for your Ford Edge, it’s actually not as complicated as one might imagine. As the Edge isn’t a full-size SUV, it’s not subject to the same overweight or oversize vehicle fees that many auto shipping companies like to stick SUV or pickup owners with. It’s not like they do it arbitrarily, though – oversize auto shipping carriers aren’t on every street corner, so they cost more. The Edge bypasses the need for a larger auto shipping truck simply by being smaller – it can fit on a standard auto shipping carrier just fine. As always, it’s best to talk to your auto shipping representative about unique shipping conditions for your Edge, but on the whole you shouldn’t have to worry about paying extra because of its size or weight, like you would with an Expedition or an F-Series truck.
