Really excited to about my new 2017 Ford Edge Sport! I'm on day 3 of ownership and I'm starting to order some accessories, get those windows tinted (hello So Cal sun), and get some low clearance snow cables. My plates are headed to me in the mail and I'm ready to strap a snowboard to the top and hit the road.
One problem: I went to order some crossbars for the roof rack, when I realized... there are no base rails. When I hopped up to look at the roof, I don't see any plastic or rubber lined gutters on the side edges. There are no fixed holes for a base rack to screw into. I don't have a the panoramic sun roof (it's just solid up top).
Please tell me Ford didn't just sell me a Sport Utility Vehicle, in the sport trim, with AWD... does not have roof rack options. Was my vehicle supposed to come with base rails? I don't even see where Ford sells the base rails.
I tried Googling and searching this forum for about 2 hours, with no real results. Other posts are from years ago (older Edges seem to have a rubber-lined gutter that reveal fixed mounting points). Is this something Ford just changed with the 2017 models? Is this something that's just omitted on the Sport trim?
