Changes are relatively minor for the 2013 Edge after Ford's mid-size crossover got a new engine choice the year prior. For 2013, all-wheel drive can now be had as an option on even base SE models, and the 6-speed SelectShift automatic transmission gets a sport mode.
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.
The 2015 Ford Edge marks the second generation of the Blue Oval's midsize SUV, which arrives with a fresh design and new turbocharged engine choices. Though it has grown slightly, the new Edge remains a 2-row, 5-passenger SUV that offers plenty of room for occupants and their belongings, and Ford has resisted the temptation to shoehorn a third row in the vehicle. The Edge uses a sedan-based platform rather than a truck chassis, which enables a comfortable, car-like ride while offering the cargo capacity and utility of an SUV. To better compete with rivals like the also-revamped Nissan Murano, the Toyota Venza and Jeep Grand Cherokee, the 2015 Edge has been re-engineered to be more dynamic on the road yet offer a quieter, higher-grade interior.
