Certainly, the 2016 Ford Edge presents one of the most expected cars from the worldwide known and globally praised American car maker-Ford. It has been a while, when the folks from this car manufacturer definitely “broken” and have, finally, released this handsome crossover. Why did they hesitate for so long, we actually have no idea. Judging by its overall appearance, it, simply, has no visible flaw. Actually, unlike its predecessors, newly made Ford Edge will have a brand-new crafted platform and will offer, somehow, wider and more potent range of the motor options. Due its much lighter chassis and generally a much better weight distribution, not only this novelty are going to be much more fuel efficient, but also, it will be much better, when it comes to general managing.
2016 Ford Edge Interior, Exterior & Appearance
When it comes to the interior section, highly notable thing worth of mentioned is that the 2016 Ford Edge will come along with a much improved interior as well as a much better supplied one, too, with the most various hi-technology gadgets, which present the latest fashion achievements in the digital industry. As far as we know, it is planned that the brand new Edge, from its sibling Ford Fusion, to borrow a few styling tweaks, which wouldn’t be so bad when we take into our consideration that newly made Fusion possess more than attractive designed main cabin.
From the really wide range of standard features, the following few will, certainly, catch everyone’s eye: full cloth upholstery, slightly upgraded dual-zone automatic climate control, Ford’s pride- a Sony audio system, front and rear adjustable seats and a 7-inch infotainment system. In the premium models, you can expect to see the features like advanced satellite navigation, quite handsome and pretty attractive full leather upholstery and a bit bigger screen intended for the infotainment system.
As well as interior, and the exterior will “copy” some of the tricks from the pretty famous Fusion. It is planned that all-new made 2016 Ford Edge will come along pretty big imposing grille coupled with two slim crafted headlights. The lower air intake will be a bit smaller compared to the other cars from the same range and, in order to improve the car’s general managing at lower speeds, the engineers from Ford have designed an impressive all-new splitter.
Ford Edge 2016 Engine
We have, already, stressed out, that newly made Ford Edge will come along with a slightly wider range of the motor options. It will be available with three different engines, actually. The first in a raw, the most likely, will be a standard a 2 liter EcoBoost engine, which strength has been estimated at about 245 horsepower and over 270 lb-ft of torque. The second one is planned to be an older variant of an engine- a 3.5 liter V6 engine, but at the same time less powerful than that of the previous one.
The strength of this particular engine has been estimated at producing only 265 horsepower, which is quite bad considering it is able to deliver less torque than the base engine. And, the third one, but the most potent one will be newly made 2.7 liter V6, which will be more than capable to develop the strength of an amazing 300 horsepower (and, even, over) and 300 lb-ft of torque. All three engines will come along matched with newly designed an 8-speed automatic gearbox.
