In Pictures: 2015 Ford Edge in Arizona

More city-dweller than outdoorsy – the all-new 2015 Edge is tech savvy and light on its feet

Phoenix, AZ – Ford’s first true crossover introduced back in 2007, the all-new 2015 Ford Edge finds a new platform, a huge bump in craftsmanship, and a whole lot of technology consumers yearned for and missing in the outgoing model. Four inches longer, one-inch taller, the Edge’s 2.0-liter powerplant is now available in all-wheel drive. On the road, the 275-hp Edge feels more capable with an all-new suspension that’s 26% stiffer and stronger than before; add the Sport 2.7-liter EcoBoost for even better handling. Inside, the Edge feels open and airy with more storage space – and gone are the hard plastics in lieu of softer ones, creating a more sculpted, refined cabin. What’s new for technology? Perpendicular self-parking, that’s what.

In North America, the all-new Edge will feature three engine options, two of which are new powerplants: a standard twin-scroll 2.0-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder and a 2.7-liter EcoBoost V6. A normally aspirated 3.5-liter V6 engine will also be offered. All will be equipped with dual exhaust and a six-speed automatic transmission.
