The all-new 2015 Ford Edge hits showrooms this spring, priced from $28,925. The model we’re most interested in, however, is the Edge Sport, which the Ford Motor Company [NYSE:F] has confirmed will come with 315 horsepower and 350 pound-feet of torque, and a $38,925 price tag, a rise of just $500 on the outgoing model. All prices mentioned include an $825 destination charge.
Power in the 2015 Edge Sport comes from a new 2.7-liter EcoBoost V-6 engine which also appears in the vehicle’s 2016 Lincoln MKX sibling, where it offers an estimated 330 hp and 370 lb-ft of torque. Other engines for the 2015 Edge include a base 2.0-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder good for 245 hp and 275 lb-ft, and a mid-range 3.5-liter V-6 with 280 hp and 250 lb-ft available. All engines are mated to a six-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters.
Estimated EPA-rated fuel economy comes in at 20/30 mpg city/highway for the 2.0-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder with front-wheel drive and 20/28 mpg with all-wheel drive. The 3.5-liter V-6 should return 18/26 mpg with front-wheel drive and 17/25 mpg with all-wheel drive; and finally the 2.7-liter EcoBoost V-6 in the Edge Sport should be good for 18/27 mpg with front-wheel drive and 17/24 mpg with all-wheel drive.
Looking once again specifically at the Edge Sport, buyers will find upgraded suspension; 20-inch alloy wheels (21-inch wheels are available); active noise cancellation tech to manage and enhance the sound of the engine; leather and perforated suede trim; aluminum pedal covers; and the latest Sync interface with an eight-inch touchscreen in the center stack and two configurable screens in the instrument cluster. The standard audio system is from Sony and features 12 speakers.
As mentioned, the 2015 Ford Edge goes on sale this spring. It will be available in the regular SE, SEL and Sport trim as well as the new range-topping Titanium trim.
