The 2015 Ford Edge was revealed in Dearborn, Michigan today showing off a new look, two new engines, and adaptive steering technology that have it poised for sale across the globe.
Adaptive Steering will be standard on the Edge Sport and an available option on the Titanium series. It will adjust the ratio between a driver’s actions at the steering wheel and how much the front wheels of the Edge actually turn. This steering ratio will continually change with vehicle speed, adjusting steering response in all situations. Whether driving in a parking lot with tight turns or at highway speeds, in the new 2015 Ford Edge, steering will always be optimized.
North America will get three engine options, two of them being new options of either a standard twin-scroll 2.0-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder or a 2.7-liter EcoBoost V6. A normally aspirated 3.5-liter V6 engine will also be available. All will be paired to a six-speed automatic transmission.
The 2.0-liter will have an estimated 245 horsepower and 270 lb-ft of torque while the 2.7 is expected to have over 300 horsepower. All of this comes with an updated design, improved technology, and convenience features designed to entice a whole new group of buyers along with its loyal fans.
