Presently a second era of the Edge is hitting the business sector, for 2015, and its to a greater extent a worldwide issue. The new Edge begins with genuinely world-class underpinnings—those of the current Portage Combination, which has been named a Best Auto To Purchase and one of our most astounding appraised vehicles and searches externally to different markets, even China, where a long-wheelbase, three-column adaptation will be constructed. 

Passage calls the new Edge more athletic, and that is no distortion, whether you're discussing its styling or its execution. Here in the U.S., the Edge lifts some of its signs from the Combination, alongside a shoulder line that wouldn't be strange on a BMW. Passage has conditioned down the sparkling chrome-bar grille, supplanting it with a look that now looks a touch unbalanced doppelganger with the Hyundai Santa Fe from a few edges. The Edge Game best escapes that look, with passed out subtle elements that draw out a percentage of the best parts of its outline and we see some game wagon suggestions in the taillamps and lower-body work. Through and through, its a look that redesigns the Edge's SUV outline, pushing the configuration more like a premium look without cutting into its genderless advanc .  Inside, there are no qualifiers fundamental; the 2015 Edge is far well beyond the friendly era, with better inside completions, and the dash shape that expands on some of Passage's different models like the Center and Departure. It guarantees to be a more practical spot, as well: the previous capacitive-touch bars for volume and fan pace have been chopped out, with handles and catches making a welcome come back to the core support. 

In the engine there's a blend of new and vestige powertrains. The base motor is Portage's 2.0-liter EcoBoost, however its currently evaluated at 245 pull and 270 lb-ft of torque; past those numbers, its drivability is better on account of twin-parchment turbocharger innovation that decreases turbo slack. You can now get the turbo four with all-wheel drive, and with a tow bundle its great to draw 3,500 pounds; we truly think the 2.0T will be splendidly satisfactory for most needs, however for the individuals who must have a V-6, the 280-hp, 3.5-liter motor has been persisted, as a $425 choice. The most captivating and engaging, after a concise commute demonstrate in the lineup is the Edge Sport, which subs in a twin-turbocharged, direct-infused 2.7-liter V-6. It's basically the same outline officially being introduced into the 2015 Portage F-150 pickup; here it makes 315 hp and 375 lb-ft of torque. Its downplayed execution look runs well with its driving identity solid and sure, with no compelling reason to shout it out.On any Edge, a six-speed automatic is standard, as are paddle shifters, and normal and and sport driving modes; there’s no reason to discount the Edge for not having eight or nine speeds, as with the strong torque output of the EcoBoost engines especially, all you’ll miss is the hesitation that extra gears can bring. Fuel economy ratings are good, but not as class-leading as you might guess given the EcoBoost badging. 2.0T models range up to 20 mpg city, 30 highway with front-wheel drive, while the Edge Sport AWD model gets 17/24 mpg.

Underneath the new 2015 Ford Edge, a fully independent suspension takes the place of the former twist-beam rear end. In front it's control arms, in back it's composed of multiple links. And to complement this, there’s a new steering system that really does give a precise, reassuring feel, tracking well straight-ahead, and taking a set into corners without fuss. The Sport model gets its own damper and spring rates, as well as rear monotube dampers, and standard 21-inch wheels, with 20s as an option. But with active noise cancellation, it actually rides quieter than the other models on coarse pavement, and leaves only the pleasant, off-cadence thrum of the larger EcoBoost engine. Across the lineup, there’s a muted sharpness to the driving experience; the Edge isn’t downright edgy in any drive respects, yet it’s precise and responsive.

Up until now, the Edge has been a half-step behind rivals in interior appointments, but that changes dramatically with the 2015 model. The biggest improvement is that there are now soft-touch surfaces everywhere not just up high, around the driver—and the cabin is seriously quiet and composed. It now rides on the Fusion's wheelbase of 112.2 inches , while it’s gain of nearly four inches in overall length allows an extra seven cubic feet behind the rear seat, along with a total of 73.4 cubic feet behind the front seat and more than 39 cubic feet with the rear seat up. It adds up to good seating space, fundamentally, although short, flat cushions both in front and in back will be limiting factors to long road-trip comfort. Small-item storage is abundant and mostly well-designed, with a center-console pass-through and even a storage drawer to the left of the steering wheel.

The Edge has fared well in safety tests in the past, but there's nothing yet on what's effectively an all-new structure and layout. This year it adds a new airbag mounted in the glovebox frame, to better protect passenger knees. Bluetooth and a rearview camera are standard across the board, while available safety features include LED headlamps, forward-collision warnings, parking assist with perpendicular parking now factored in, and rear-seat inflatable seat belts. And with new front- and rear-camera system and parking sensors, it’s the easiest Edge to park, ever.

All new and upgraded Ford 2015  Edge comes in SEL, SE, Titanium, and Sport models, and our only caution points in the direction of pricing: If you want some of that great safety-tech, and some of the best tech features offered in the Edge, Ford pushes the bottom line price way up. And many of the most desirable features in general  like the panoramic Vista Roof, a heated steering wheel, remote start,and the inflatable belts are reserved for the Titanium and Sport.
