Green Friendly: 2012 Ford Edge EcoBoost

Engine

Ford will officialy begin production of the 2012 Edge with the 2.0-liter EcoBoost engine sometime later this month.

Ford has announced that the 2012 Edge will be available with the 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder EcoBoost engine that achieves, with front-wheel-drive, 21 mpg in the city and 30 mpg on the highway (opting for AWD will bring down those numbers by around 1-2 mpg). The 2.0 EcoBoost, which is also under the hood of the larger Explorer, churns out 240hp and 270 lb-ft of torque and is mated to a six-speed automatic transmission with an active warm-up system to reduce internal friction at start.

There's also an active grille shutter system that closes as vehicle speed increases to improve aerodynamics and fuel efficiency. The Ford Edge with the four-cylinder EcoBoost engine first made its debut at the 2010 Chicago Auto Show and was slated to go on sale by December of that year, but production halted for a couple years and now the upcoming EcoBoost-powered Edge is scheduled to arrive later this month.
