Ford has announced the performance specifications for the 2015 Edge as the model will go on sale starting this spring from 38, 100 USD.
The 2015 Ford Edge Sport is a performance compact crossover which is coming with a sport tuned suspension system, stiffer springs, unique rear dampers, a sporty styling to set it apart from its regular brothers, 20-inch polished aluminum wheels and several other tweaks. The interior design of the model also has a sporty styling and this is gaining the faux carbon fiber trim, the aluminum pedal caps, the perforated leather / suede sport seats, the 8-inch display for the infotainment system ambient lighting and a Sony audio system, amongst others.
The most important part of the 2015 Ford Edge Sport is found under its hood where the 2.7 liter EcoBoost V6 engine is resting. The unit is capable of producing a total output of 315 HP (235 kW) and it has a peak torque of 474 Nm (350 lb-ft). Ford has been cheap on providing the 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) acceleration time or the top speed of the crossover but we do know its fuel consumption, which is 18 / 27 / 21 in city / highway / combined, in front-wheel drive layout, or 17 / 24 / 20 mph with the all-wheel drive. More details on the Edge Sport are limited at this time and will be announced this spring, when the model will go on sale.
