A 2008 used Ford Edge is one of the strongest buys to be found in the mid-size crossover segment. Not only is this particular automobile capable of handling all of the same tasks that make a traditional SUV so practical and convenient, but it does so while offering a more comfortable ride for as many as five passengers, better fuel economy and the kind of handling that a truck-base sport-utility vehicle can’t come close to matching.
Underneath the hood of a 2008 used Ford Edge lies a 3.5-liter V-6 engine that has been tuned to offer 265 horsepower and 265 lb-ft of torque. In base trim, the Ford Edge comes with standard front-wheel drive, but for those who crave additional traction or who have to slog through long winter months filled with snow and ice, an all-wheel drive edition of the 2008 used Ford Edge can also be found on the secondhand market.

Backing up each and every used Ford Edge is a six-speed automatic transmission that also allows for drivers to step in and handle gearshifts themselves, which translates into the best of both worlds for those who love sporty driving. Fuel mileage for the 2008 used Ford Edge comes in at a very respectable 18 miles per gallon in stop and go driving and 25 miles per gallon on the highway.
Compared to the previous model year, the 2008 used Ford Edge offers buyers some interesting upgrades in terms of features and equipment. Perhaps most intriguing is the inclusion of the Ford SYNC vehicle interface system. This computerized control center makes it easier to integrate mobile devices such as MP3 players, smart phones and cell phones into the vehicle’s entertainment and communications systems. It also provides a level of voice control over many different aspects of the crossover. The convenience and capability of Ford SYNC is one of the most attractive features of the 2008 Ford Edge model.
Additional equipment that was introduced for the first time in the 2008 used Ford Edge? A power liftgate became an option, making it much easier to load cargo in and out of the roomy crossover (which offers 69 cubic feet of total storage space), and SYNC voice control also became capable of interfacing with the Ford Edge’s navigation system, allowing drivers to keep their attention on the road and still make it to their destination in the quickest and most direct way possible.
These fresh items are on top of the list of gear that already includes heated leather seats, an optional Vista Roof (which installs a full-length glass panel sunroof in the Edge) and the new upscale Limited trim. The latter replaces the previous year’s SEL Plus and counts dual automatic climate control and additional chrome accents amongst its many comfort features.
