2015 Ford Edge Overview
What’s New for the 2015 Ford Edge?
The 2015 Ford Edge is all-new, with more interior room, new engine choices, and the automaker’s best available technology and amenities.
2015 Ford Edge Exterior
The 2015 Ford Edge retains the strong stance and squat appearance that has made it so popular among SUVs and gains new athletic zeal. The same standout grille found on the Fusion has made its way to the Edge’s front end, whose shutters can automatically open and close for optimal aerodynamics on the turbocharged models.
2015 Ford Edge Performance
The 2015 Ford Edge comes with the buyer’s choice of three engines. A 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder producing 245 horsepower and 275 pound-feet of torque, a 3.5-liter V6 producing 280 hp and 250 lb-ft of torque, and a 2.7-liter turbo V6 producing 315 hp and 350 lb-ft of torque. All models come with a six-speed automatic transmission, a sport mode for quicker acceleration, paddle shifters, and available all-wheel-drive.
2015 Ford Edge Efficiency
Efficiency is usually inversely proportional to power, but not always when you involve Ford EcoBoost technology. The 2.0-liter gets 20 mpg city/30 mpg highway (FWD) and 20/28 (AWD); the 3.5-liter gets 18/26 (FWD) and 17/25 (AWD); and the 2.7-liter gets (18/27) and 17/24 (AWD). You’ll notice that it’s actually better to get the 2.7-liter V6 over the 3.7-liter V6, as you get essentially the same efficiency for more power. Even the power curves are better.
2015 Ford Edge Interior
The 2015 Ford Edge has the same two-row, five-passenger layout as the previous gen, except with more room for both people and cargo. Newly designed seats provide more legroom at the front and back and cargo capacity has increased by 39.2 cubic feet with the rear seats up, and 73.4 with them folded. The interior feels more refined and premium than ever, as well as easier to use thanks to better buttons for audio and climate control.
2015 Ford Edge Safety
The 2015 Ford Edge comes standard with antilock brakes, traction and stability control, Ford’s Curve Control, front knee airbags, front side airbags, side curtain airbags, and a rearview camera. The Ford Sync system includes emergency crash-notification that automatically dials 911. There’s also numerous optional safety equipment like inflatable outboard rear seatbelts, blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alerts, and more.
