A 240-horsepower EcoBoost 2.0-liter engine is added to the 2012 Edge's powertrain list. Offered on the SE, SEL and Limited trims, the 4-cylinder EcoBoost engine features turbocharging and gasoline direct injection to achieve an EPA estimated 21 mpg city and 30 mpg highway. EcoBoost-equipped Edge models also feature active grille shutters, which close under certain conditions to improve aerodynamics. Also new is the availability of a passenger's 10-way power seat with power lumbar support.
For 2011, the Edge gets a major makeover, sporting an aggressive oversized three-bar chrome grille, new front fenders and a more modern interior. The 3.5-liter V6 sees a big jump in horsepower to 285, while the Sport trim's 3.7-liter engine boosts output to 305 horsepower. New options include Intelligent Access with push-button start, adaptive cruise control and a new driver interface system called MyFord Touch.
New options for 2008 include the SYNC hands-free communications and entertainment system, a power rear liftgate, voice-activated DVD navigation and two new packages: The Limited series and an interior Appearance Package featuring red leather seating with contrasting piping.
The all-new Edge crossover is stylish on the outside, comfortable on the inside and smooth, quiet and responsive on the road. Most importantly, the entire package is wrapped in an overall sense of quality and refinement that's sure to sway plenty of import-brand devotees.
By masterfully combining the best attributes of a responsive but comfortable sedan with those of a versatile and roomy SUV, the Ford Edge fulfills the promise of the Crossover Utility Vehicle like no other example to date. It also demonstrates impeccable timing, arriving in the same year that car-based CUV sales overtake truck-based SUV sales for the first time. The Ford Edge might not have the capacity to impact the market in the same way as the automaker's Taurus sedan of 1986 or the Explorer SUV of 1991, but the fact that it's good enough to get mentioned in the same sentence as those milestones says quite a bit.
