At last, the official numbers and specs for the 2015 Edge Sport are out, and Ford is calling it the most powerful Edge ever. Last year’s Edge Sport already had an impressive 3.7-liter engine, capable of producing 305 horsepower and 280 lb. of torque. For 2015, Ford is going well beyond those numbers, increasing torque by 25% and raw power is now in V8 territory.
Once again, Ford is using their new EcoBoost strategy to achieve better performance and improved fuel efficiency. Instead of going with a bigger engine, engineers decided to scale back the displacement and added a turbo-charger. The new 2.7-liter EcoBoost V6 delivers 315 horsepower and 350 lb. of torque.
The 2.7-liter EcoBoost also incorporates a technology found only in Ford’s PowerStroke line: a graphite iron cylinder block. The new construction adds vibration and harshness control while increasing the rigidity of the design.
The 2015 Edge Sport’s suspension has also been upgraded, and is now 15% stiffer than in previous models. New monotube dampers and updated coil springs give the new Edge better control and steering.
Additionally, the 2015 Edge Sport looks better than ever, inside and out. Upgraded LED taillamps and a more athletic shape set the new Edge apart. On the inside, an 8-in LCD touch screen houses Ford SYNC and other cabin controls, while the 12-speaker Sony audio system envelopes the driver and passengers in crisp detailed music.
Remember the new Ford Edge Sport is coming this spring, with a starting price of $38,100.
