The Weather Edge


If the Escape is too small and the Explorer is too big, Ford has the perfect vehicle for you: The 2015 Ford Edge, which will be available soon at Johnson Brothers Ford. This near-premium crossover features two rows, but since it is almost as big as many of the three-row utility vehicles out there, it has tons of room for five adults plus cargo.

The 2015 model year adds even more styling and capability – the two things that Edge fans love. Since many Edge fans love the styling, the interior and exterior were updated, but kept the major design cues. The new Edge is sleeker than the outgoing year and uses even more upscale materials.

Instead of copying other brands, exterior designer Kevin George decided to keep a lot of the Edge’s styling to create an updated version of the utility vehicle. The new Edge was designed to meet customers’ expectations, according to George.

The 2015 Ford Edge has additional features including heated seats and a heated steering wheel, plus a lift gate that opens with a swish of a leg, making this model great for winter driving. Additional features include cameras and park assist.

Since the 2015 model year is coming in March 2015 and the 2016 model year is expected to come out in late fall of 2015, this will be a short year for this model. The 2014 model year is also still available and has been at dealerships since November 2013.

Other changes include an improved electric power steering, active park assist, a hands-free lift gate, a premium multi-link rear suspension, softer interior materials and a new trim level: the Titanium. The Limited will no longer be available. The base engine is a 2.0-liter twin-scroll turbocharged four-cylinder that makes 275 pound-feet of torque and 245 horsepower.

The Edge Sport will feature a new 2.7-liter turbocharged EcoBoost V-6 engine that makes 315 horsepower and 350 pound-feet of torque. The engine is smaller than the outgoing 3.7-liter, but makes more power.
