Are You Shopping for a 2014 Ford Edge Near Boulder?
The crossover market is without a doubt one of the most competitive around Boulder, and even though it may be tough to find the right family vehicle, the 2014 Ford Edge has carved out a niche for itself. Ford’s Edge comes standard with:
- A V6 engine
- Cruise control
- Air conditioning
- 17-inch alloy wheels
Available technology includes a rearview camera, infotainment system, and more, but they require upgrading to higher trims. Wouldn’t it be great to get a family crossover that comes with what you want without the need to upgrade? If you said “yes,” then you should check out the 2014 Honda CR-V.
Let’s start with the savings; Honda’s 2014 CR-V has a fuel-efficient four-cylinder engine that gets an EPA-estimated 31 highway mpg on two-wheel drive models.* That’s long-term savings for a family vehicle, which sounds like a win to us. The base V6 on the Ford Edge is less efficient and earns EPA estimates of 19 mpg in the city and 27 mpg on the highway. That may be enough for some drivers, but there’s so much more on the side of the Honda crossover.
The 2014 Honda CR-V is able to deliver such impressive fuel economy ratings because it is a whopping 700 to 900 pounds less than the 2014 Edge. Because the CR-V is 5.9 inches shorter than its competitor from Ford, it offers exceptional handling, and you will have an easier time parking in tight spaces.
