AboutThatCar.com: 2019 Ford Edge

I was really impressed by the 2019 Ford Edge. In a phrase, it has grown. I’m not talking about its size which looks about the same. I’m talking about stature and equipment and perception. I always thought the Ford Edge was a poor-man’s Ford Explorer but not anymore.

I had the opportunity to attend the launch of Hyundai’s 2018 Sonata last summer in Southern California. I walked away very impressed with the midsize sedan. After a week with the car in urban America I found that my first reaction was correct.

AboutThatCar.com: 2019 Jeep Cherokee

The 2019 Jeep looked a lot better than the model it will replace. I was one of those folks who thought it looked a little funny. The DRLs were above the headlamps on the old model and the fog lamps were beneath. It looked a lot better than it sounds here but still it was love it or loath it styling.
