Ford is making headlines again for garner top honors. This time, J.D. Power has named the Ford Edge the best Midsize SUV. The runner ups included the Nissan Murano and Hyundai Sante Fe. Its primary competitors include the Kia Sorento, Mitsubishi Outlander, and Subaru Outback.
It’s no surprise to us here at Randall Reed’s Prestige Ford that the Edge had the “edge” over the competition. The midsize crossover SUV is popular with our customers and offers a wide variety of options.
