Ford has announced that the soon-to-be-released 2015 Ford Edge Sport has been SAE-certified as the most powerful Edge ever built.

When powered by the 2.7-liter EcoBoost V6, the Edge Sport gets 315 horsepower and 350 lb-ft of torque, which is 25% better torque-wise than the 2014 Edge Sport’s base 3.7-liter V6.

Not only is the 2015 Edge Sport more powerful, but it is also equally or more efficient than the former model. In front-wheel drive, the Edge Sport is EPA-estimated to return 18 mpg city/27 mpg highway/21 mpg combined. In AWD, the Edge Sport is estimated at 17 mpg city/24 mpg highway/20 mpg combined.

“The 2015 Edge Sport is exactly what it says it is – a utility vehicle that not only looks beautiful, but is a spirited performer,” said Cristina Aquino, Ford Edge Consumer Marketing manager. “Ford customer research showed there was a strong desire for more in terms of power and content, and with the redesign of Ford Edge, we wanted to give customers a true sport version, which meant bringing the 2.7-liter EcoBoost V6 along for the ride.”

The 2015 Edge, which is the same price at the base level as the 2014 Edge despite a number of enhancements and a bold new look, is scheduled to hit showrooms later this spring. The Edge Sport is expected to start $38,100 in FWD and $40,095 in AWD, a $500 and $545 year-over-year increase in price, respectively.
