The 2015 Ford Edge Sport has been officially SAE-certified as the most powerful Edge ever with the highest horsepower and torque ratings yet.
Powered by Ford’s newest EcoBoost engine (a 2.7-litre V6) the 2015 Ford Edge Sport builds on its reputation as the modern utility vehicle for people who want to have fun behind the wheel and look good doing it.
Edge Sport’s 2.7-litre EcoBoost V6 engine delivers a 10 per cent increase in horsepower over the previous standard engine, a 3.7-litereV6, and a 25 per cent increase in torque – for a total of 315 hp and 350 lb/ft torque output is available at 2,750 rpm, far lower in the performance band than the 2014 model, for a better performance feel. The previous engine generated peak torque at 4,000 rpm.
With final ratings approved, the front-wheel-drive Edge Sport returns an EPA-estimated test cycle fuel economy ratings of (US)18 mpg city, (US) 27 mpg highway and (US) 21 mpg combined. EPA-estimated ratings for the all-wheel-drive model are (US) 17 mpg city, (US) 24 mpg highway and (US) 20 mpg combined.
The Edge Sport suspension has been upgraded with front and rear antiroll bars that are 15 percent stiffer than the base model.
Unique rear monotube dampers are larger in diameter, while coil springs are 10 per cent stiffer and offer 20 per cent less body roll than the previous-generation setup.
Enhanced damping gives Edge Sport improved road-holding capability – providing the driver with more control, sharper steering and greater confidence.
Edge Sport rides on 20-inch standard polished aluminum wheels with magnetic low-gloss painted pockets; 21-inch premium painted tarnished dark low-gloss aluminum wheels are available, as well as a summer-only tire option with the 21-inch wheels.
The vehicle is equipped with Active Noise Cancellation technology to manage and enhance the sound of the 2.7-litre EcoBoost engine.
The system uses microphones strategically placed throughout the cabin to generate opposing sound waves. These waves are directed through the audio system to enhance overall cabin ambience.
