2016 Ford Edge
Mid-range segment of Ford’s SUV range will be refreshed in 2016. New Edge is on the way as second generation vehicle. After seven years, company decided to head into bigger redesign and to launch it as 2016 Ford Edge. However, we expect some significant changes, but since there is no official info about crossover, we still can’t be sure what is coming.
2016 Ford Edge engine
It is likely for 2016 Ford Edge to get 2.0L EcoBoost I-4 unit as its base drivetrain. This one can put up 245 hp and 270 lb-ft of torque. Since 2016 Edge is expected in few trim levels, higher end models will have stronger engines. So, next trim will be powered from 3.5-l V6 with 285 hp and 263 lb-ft of torque. Top of the class and the most expensive models gets power from 2.7-l twin-turbo V6, which is capable to deliver the highest output, 320 hp and 375 lb-ft of torque. Front-wheel drive is standard for base models, while AWD will be deployed for higher trims of the Edge. Engines will send power through 6-speed auto gearbox, while new 9-speed transmission system is unlikely for this model.

Bumper gets refreshment with larger exhaust pipes. It is designed to take up to 5 passengers as a mid-size crossover. Comfort is highlight of the interior and upholstery is made of finest materials.
