2015 Ford Edge Powertrains Detailed
Sport model makes 315 hp from 2.7-liter EcoBoost V-6.
The redesigned 2015 Ford Edge goes on sale this spring, and Ford has now released details on this new crossover's powertrain lineup that includes a standard 2.0-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder, a 3.5-liter V-6, and a 2.7-liter V-6 EcoBoost in the range-topping Sport model.
The Ford Edge Sport will be significantly more powerful than its predecessor, with the 2.7-liter twin-turbo V-6 making a heady 315 hp and 350 lb-ft of torque. Surprisingly enough, Ford will even offer a front-wheel-drive Sport model, which should make for an interesting driving experience given all that torque. All-wheel drive is $1,495 extra, and drops EPA fuel economy numbers from 18/27 mpg city/highway down to 17/24 mpg city/highway. All Ford Edge Sport models also come with upgraded wheels and tires, a piano black-trimmed front fascia, and plenty of standard equipment.
2015 Ford Edge SE, SEL, and Titanum models all come standard with a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder that makes 245 hp and 275 lb-ft of torque. This engine gets 20/30 mpg city/highway when paired with front-wheel drive or 20/28 mpg city/highway with the optional all-wheel-drive system. A 3.5-liter V-6 engine with 280 hp and 250 lb-ft of torque is also available on the SE, SEL, and Titanum trims for $425 extra, but has significantly lower EPA ratings than the four-cylinder EcoBoost, at 18/26 city/highway with FWD and 17/25 mpg city/highway with AWD.
Prices for the 2015 Ford Edge start at $28,995 for the SE and range up to the Edge Sport which costs $38,995. Look for this redesigned crossover to go on sale within the next few months.
