Well "that" day is coming....

It was going to happen eventually.
I bought a new ride.
Monday I bought a 2015 Ford Edge SPORT with the 2.7L Ecoboost.
So far, it's an unbelievable and plush ride.
I'm a 50 year old Grandpa who used to commute 750 miles a week with a bad back and hip (herniated L5 and L6 plus pulled and torn hip flexors).
Last September I moved to a new company less than half the distance. It was time to upgrade.
The Focus has been GREAT to me and my family. It has served well. I would love to keep it but the wife insists I sell it (I would love to hand it off to a fellow enthusiast, interested parties please PM me). I hope the Edge serves us as well, only 24K miles. I feel like I should do a few mods. Right now SCT doesn't support the Edge at all (I wanted Tom to tune her.) so I may have to go with Livernois Motorsports. If so I will let the tune and device go with the Focus.
Here she is...

I don't tell my Wife what she can have. My Wife does not tell me what I can have. I will never understand the Wife says. I Wish you luck.

Looks like a great ride! Can't say I would want one but at least it looks pretty decent SUV. Just one curious question though why didn't you choose the Titanium or even the ST trim?

This was a deal I couldn't pass up. It was a 1 Owner, lease return with 24K. A lady bought it and brought it right back because it was too big for her. She put 7 miles on it. SEVEN! She paid the tags and now its a TWO OWNER LOL! So I got it for 25K.
I was shopping for an F150 for a long time but I would have had to have a LOT more miles on it to get one at that price. I found a dependable Coyote powered 2015 but by the time I was ready to pull the trigger it was gone. Hung around the F150 forums and they all said stay away from high mileage Ecoboost F150s.
Anyway, she runs like a raped ape and I can fit my rifles in the back when I go to the range plus take my buddies along. This edge checked all the boxes for my requirements. Oh and have you priced an ST?

That’s a bummer to hear about the F-150 Coyotee being so difficult to find. I was hoping to pick one up in the next year or two.

Very nice SUV sir, congrats! Iíve always liked the Edge & Escape. Both are very nice riding SUVs but both still small enough to zip around town in. As much as I love the Focus ST & RS, getting in & out of an SUV is so much easier on the body & back, especially as we all get older.
