Built on the same platform as the Fusion, the Edge will debut a number of new technologies for Ford, such as variable-ratio steering and active noise cancellation.
In the USA, the 2015 model will be offered with three different engines, two of which are new to the Edge.
The first is a turbocharged 2.0-liter, four-cylinder EcoBoost making around 245 hp (183 kW) and 366 Nm of torque. The engine has a lighter block than previous EcoBoost motors, and uses an aluminum balance shaft to save weight. It also uses lightweight pistons and an integrated exhaust manifold, which is coupled with high pressure fuel injection to save fuel.
