F-150 to Edge Decision

Recommended Posts

Newbie.  I have had a series of F-150s starting in 2011.  I currently have a 2017 4WD SCREW, XLT with the 2.7 Eco. My current lease  expires July, 2020.  I am getting tired of the big vehicles.    While I like the truck, I am just ready for a change.  Has anyone out there made the change I am contemplating?   We make several 800mi. round trips to another residence each year.  I have never had an uncomfortable moment in the truck, and that is one factor pointing to buying out current lease or re-upping for another F-150.  On the other hand, wifey feels she has to take everything she owns and be prepared for any eventuality, so we pretty much load the truck for each trip.  I would be very happy to have to load less.  Any thoughts or clarifying questions will be appreciated.

We had a 2008 Edge and now a 2016 MKX.  I used to drive Rangers but switched to cars for 20 years before I bought my 2018 F150.  The only issue you might have is that the seat is much smaller in the Edge (also the steering wheel).  It feels strange moving from the F150 to the Edge but you get used to it.  I would suggest an extended test drive but otherwise it's a great vehicle.

I have a 2011 Mustang, a 2014 Edge Limited and an old low miles 1991 F150 4X4. You know what?, The 1991 F150 4X4 rides smoother than the others :(. It's hard to believe, but true :) I only drive the truck around 1,000 miles per year but when you need a truck you need a truck...….

I’ve had full size pickups for forty years. Didn’t think I could do without them. 
 

Last March we bought a condo with what’s essentially a 1 1/2 car garage, so the truck had to sit outside. After a couple of months I looked at smaller trucks and the salesman suggested I try an edge. 
 

Six months later, I love the edge. It’s comfortable, good on gas (2.0 turbo) and easy to drive. It’s a 2017 with 38,000 miles and in perfect condition. 
 

There have only been a couple of times I needed a truck, but both of my sons have one. Last week I bought three Base cabinets at Lowe’s for our family room. Had to make three trips to get them home. Really wasn’t a big deal and I really don’t miss the truck. 
 

in fact, after driving the edge for six months, my sons truck felt almost too big !! Haha
