2015 Ford Edge Jacksonville NC
Since its release in the 2007 model year, the Ford Edge has received a few refreshes and updates, but until now, the midsize crossover has remained on the same platform. For the new model year, however, the 2015 Ford Edge in Jacksonville NC is receiving its first redesign, which will welcome new styling, slightly altered dimensions, updated equipment, and of course, EcoBoost engines.
The 2015 Ford Edge’s platform is based on the critically-acclaimed Ford Fusion sedan. The ride promises to be quieter and smoother with a reworked suspension while three available engines give drivers a few different power/efficiency combos.
In its base configuration, the Edge will come standard with a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine Ford expects to yield 245 horsepower and 270 pound-feet of torque. The newest and most exciting powertrain offering is a new 2.7-liter Ecoboost V-6 that will generate a minimum of 300 horsepower. Those looking for more traditional midsize utility vehicle power can find it by configuring the 2015 Ford Edge with a 3.5-liter V-6. No matter which engine is powering the Edge, a six-speed automatic transmission equipped with paddle shifters mounted on the steering wheel will send power to the front wheels, although all-wheel drive also is available.
Adaptive steering is another exciting addition to the 2015 Ford Edge in Jacksonville NC. The new system dynamically adjust steering based on how fast the vehicle is moving and reduces the effort it takes to turn, especially at low speeds. The Adaptive Steering system has Normal and Sport modes to offer varying levels of precision and agility.
Inside, a full slate of available active safety features help drivers be more aware of their surroundings. A front 180-degree camera gives those behind the wheel a more expansive look at what’s ahead and in their peripherals while Enhanced Park Assist changes the way you approach snug parking spaces.
