Ford Reveals the 2015 Edge


The second-generation of Ford's hot-selling crossover has arrived.

The Ford Edge has been a strong seller for the American automaker, so it was vital not to mess it up when it came to its redesign. And now the all-new 2015 Edge is here. Built on the same platform as the Fusion, the new Edge features all-new sheetmetal, improved fuel economy, and overall greater refinement than its predecessor. Power will come from a choice of engines: an updated turbocharged 2.0-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder with 245 horsepower and 270 lb-ft of torque.

The familiar 3.5-liter V6 returns with around 295 hp and 255 lb-ft, but Ford has yet to officially confirm those numbers. Those opting for the Edge Sport trim will be treated to the new 2.7-liter twin-turbocharged V6 – the very same engine also found in the new F-150 – reportedly churning out over 300 hp. The sole gearbox for all trims is a six-speed automatic. The 2.0T trim has a choice of front- or all-wheel-drive, while the 3.5 and 2.7T are AWD only. Other features include adaptive steering technology, a blind spot monitoring system, enhanced active park assist, hands-free liftgate, and a glovebox knee airbag. Interior space and cargo capacity has also been increased for passengers thanks to a longer wheelbase.

The cabin’s storage areas have also been improved, and there’s an optional 8-inch LCD touch screen supporting the latest version of SYNC with MyFord Touch. Trim levels will include SE, SEL, Sport, and for the first time, top-level Titanium. Official pricing wasn’t announced, but Ford says the 2015 Edge will arrive in showrooms early next year.
