Edge has been reshaped to be more visually athletic, retooled to meet higher expectations for quality around the world and reengineered with more advanced technologies to make the driving experience more rewarding.
The new Edge is slightly larger than the model it replaces, but retains its familiar four-door, five-seat configuration. It is available for the first time with front camera technology to help drivers see better in certain instances, an enhanced active park assist system to enable perpendicular and parallel parking in tight quarters, and an advanced adaptive steering system to make Edge easier to maneuver and more fun to drive.
A premium-level Titanium series is also available for the first time. The 2015 Edge comes standard with a 2.0-liter EcoBoost engine, tuned to deliver a balanced mix of fuel economy and performance. A normally aspirated, 3.5-liter V-6 engine is also available.
A unique Sport model features Ford’s most advanced EcoBoost yet: A 2.7-liter V-6, along with standard 21-inch wheels; this is the highest-performance Edge.
Smart technology is available on Edge to improve efficiency. Auto Start-Stop can improve fuel economy by turning off the engine when it is not needed, such as when the vehicle is stopped at a traffic light. Edge also features smart air inlets at the front that can direct air along the vehicle sides, creating an “air curtain,” to enable greater aerodynamic efficiency at high speeds. Other technology features include Ford’s hands-free liftgate, SYNC with MyFord Touch, adaptive cruise control and inflatable rear safety belts.
Base model estimated mpg: TBD. Estimated starting price: $32,000.
