Any 2016 Edge sightings yet?

Recommended Posts

The adaptive steering will be interesting for me as well as the lane change stuff. At the last minute I opted for the 20 inch wheels. One of my reasons was hoping for a bit softer ride. That and the 21 inch tires are lots more dollars. Especially if you need to replace all 4 because of the AWD. That said the 21 inch wheels are AWSOME.

 

Enjoy your ride. Keep us informed.

the Edge AWD isnt full time. I believe its FWD bias. I doubt all four tires will be wearing down at the same rate. You should be able to rotate front to back to get even wear

Wear isn't the issue. The issue is if your tires are 50% worn and you have to replace one due to a puncture.

The Edge is very nice.

 

The adaptive steering will take some time to get used to. Driving home from the dealership the steering seemed to correct itself on the highway off ramp while turning. This caught me off gourd however I suppose it's possible the steering is calibrating itself.

 

I'm also not accustomed to the moving directional lines in the backup camera since my 2011 Edge does not have them. The camera angle is also considerably different but I believe it is better than in the previous Edge.

 

The ride is more rough then I recall from my test drive but my test drive Edge Sport only had the 20" wheels and my ordered Edge Sport has the 21".

 

Overall quality seems good. Body panels and interior panels are well aligned. I have noticed two issues so far. The driver's door handle seems to recess too far so it doesn't align with the door handle cap and there's a rattle coming from the back somewhere however I haven't investigated it at all. The rattle could be something simple like the rear seat belt.

Congrats on getting your ride...

Thanks for the link. I confirmed my rattle was coming from the cargo cover plastic clips connected to the headrest posts. Pushing the headrest down further stopped the rattle.
