Nearly a year ago, Ford Motor Company gave the world a sneak peek of the 2015 Ford Edge. As we swing around to February 2015, it seems that people are anxiously awaiting the 2015 Edge’s release which is set for the spring of this year. While all the other 2015 Ford models are basically out already, people have had to wait for even the specs of the Ford Edge. That is, until now.
The 2015 Ford Edge Sport will be getting one of the most exciting SUV engines out there. The Edge will get Ford’s new direct-injected, twin-turbocharged, “Nano” 2.7-liter EcoBoost V6. This mouthful is rated at a massive 315 horsepower and 350 pound-feet of torque. This puts it 10hp and 70 lb-ft of torque above last year’s Sport Edition. These numbers may not seem too impressive at first, but for reference, the 2015 F-150 puts out only slightly more with 325hp and 375 lb-ft of torque. That is truly saying something about this amazing SUV.
The 2.7L EcoBoost engine is small while outputting tremendous power; however, if you think that is more power than you need you can get the 2.0L EcoBoost 4-cylinder. It still has 245hp and 275 lb-ft of torque which is more than enough for most people. By deferring to this standard engine you lose two cylinders, thus gaining better fuel economy. While the jump is only a couple miles per gallon, that can make a difference over time.
