Motor Trend logo Motor Trend 12/16/2014 Stefan Ogbac

New for 2015

The redesigned 2015 Ford Edge gains some new features such as adaptive steering, adaptive cruise control, and collision warning with brake support. A new EcoBoost turbocharged 2.7-liter V-6 expected to make 320 hp and 370 lb-ft of torque is new for the 2015 model year. However, based on Ford's spec sheets, premium fuel is recommended to get the best performance out of the new engine.

Vehicle Summary

The 2015 Ford Edge is a five-passenger midsize crossover sold in four grades and is available with front- or all-wheel drive for the 2015 model year.


In addition to the new 2.7-liter EcoBoost V-6, a revised version of Ford's turbocharged 2.0-liter I-4 with 245 hp and 270 lb-ft serves as the base engine for the 2015 Edge. Buyers can also opt for a 3.5-liter V-6 with 285 hp and 253 lb-ft. All three engine choices are mated to a six-speed automatic transmission.

Interior space is larger than the previous generation with the 2015 Edge gaining more space for passenger and cargo due to the new crossover growing slightly. Available features such as adaptive cruise control, heated and cooled front seats, heated rear seats, lane-keeping assist, 180-degree front camera, and Sync with MyFord touch and navigation bring the 2015 Edge up to par with offerings from luxury brands.Higher trim levels are available with blind spot warning and adaptive cruise control with forward collision warning and brake assist.

Ford has reworked the suspension and chassis of the 2015 Edge for improved handling and a smoother drive with a fully independent rear suspension. The crossover now rides on the same platform as the Fusion midsize sedan. Sport grade models have a more aggressive set up with anti-roll bars, and stiffer springs and dampers.

The 2015 Edge has not been crash tested by the NHTSA or IIHS.

What We Think

The 2015 Edge is shaping into a formidable competitor among five-passenger crossovers with its new turbocharged V-6, a host of new tech features, and handling improvements. While exterior styling is improved, it remains conservative and similar to the previous generation.
