2015 Ford Edge Exterior

2015 Ford Edge Overview (See Available Styles)

New/Notable:
  • Redesigned for 2015
  • Three engine options, including two EcoBoost engines
  • New entertainment and safety technology
Not all redesigns are created equal, but the changes to the 2015 Ford Edge are thorough and exciting, giving the five-seat crossover new life.

The Edge’s exterior styling has been reworked to bring it more in line with the rest of the Ford lineup, including the Fusion and Focus. It is more angular than the outgoing model, with a hexagonal front grille and more prominent body sculpting down the sides that makes the Edge look more aggressive. LED taillights and 18-inch alloy wheels come standard. The 2015 Edge has also grown, with added four-inches of added length that increases both cargo and passenger room.

Two of the Edge’s three engine options are new as well. In a first for Ford, the base engine will come from their EcoBoost family of turbocharged engines. It is a 245-hp, twin-scroll 2.0-liter four-cylinder that makes 270 pounds-feet of torque. The 285-hp, 3.5-liter V-6 carries over and is optional; the final engine option is a new 2.7-liter EcoBoost that is exclusive to the Edge at launch and should produce over 300-hp. Each engine is mated to a six-speed automatic transmission. Front-wheel drive is standard, with an all-wheel drive system optional. Ford is also debuting new adaptive steering technology on the Edge; it is available on Sport and Titanium models, and can change the amount of steering effort required to turn the car on the fly. So if you’re in a parking lot at low speeds, it adds more steering to make the Edge easier to turn, but on the highway it smooths out inputs.

Inside, the Edge’s materials have gotten an upgrade and as we mentioned previously, added length brings with it 7 more cubic feet of cargo room and extra headroom/legroom for all passengers. Standard interior features include cruise control, SYNC with Bluetooth connectivity, USB port, air conditioning, and power windows/locks. The MyFord Touch system returns, which adds customizable LCD screens to the instrument panel and thankfully now retains physical controls in the center stack.

Much of the Edge’s new technology comes in the form of driving aids and safety. There is now an enhanced parking assist system that works for parallel parking and backing into perpendicular spaces as well; the Edge handles the steering, you just work the pedals and shifter. There is also a 180-degree front-mounted camera that helps you see around corners, a hands-free power tailgate, lane keep assist, and side parking sensors all optional as well.

Standard safety features include a new active glove box knee airbag for the front passenger, electronic stability control with roll stability control, and antilock brakes.
