2017 Ford Edge SE vs SEL

Buying a vehicle is full of decisions. Even after you’ve chosen the right model, you still have to choose an exterior color, trim level and package options that suit your needs. We understand you may not have the time to search through brochures and spec sheets, so we’re here to help. If you’re interested in the 2017 Ford Edge, the first thing you’ll need to decide is if the entry level specs meet your needs or if you need to move up to a higher trim level. That’s why we’re comparing the SE vs SEL trims below.

Though there are differences between the 2017 Ford Edge SE vs SEL, there are also some similarities to keep in mind. For example, both models are available with an AWD system, and both seat up to 5 people. Up front, each one also has a primary touchscreen display that comes standard. Now, let’s take a look at some differences.

Differences Between the 2017 Edge SE and SEL Trim Levels

Of course, we can’t compare every single feature between these two trim levels, but you can see from the table the difference between the two when it comes to some of the more popular features drivers enjoy. As expected, the SEL trim starts at a little higher MSRP, but with that price you gain access to an additional, more powerful, engine option. Though the SE model does have a standard Low Tire Pressure Warning system, a must-have feature for those winter months, the SEL can provide some additional peace of mind through its Parking Assist feature and available Blind Spot Monitoring.
