Ford Edge

2014 is shaping up to be a great year for Ford . The redesigned Mustang is set to go on sale as the first version of the pony to reach global markets, while the new-generation F-150 introduces the aluminum body to the pickup-truck segment. New additions also include the revised Expedition SUV and Transit van, introduced for the first time in North America as a replacement for the long-running E Series .

2015 will be equally busy, with several new or refreshed vehicles to hit dealer lots. The new Super Duty trucks, the Edge crossover, and the restyled Focus are the most important additions that come to mind. But Ford has a lot more going on for the remainder of the decade, according to Automotive News, who managed to obtain more details about what Ford may have in store for the next three years.

Introduced in 2006 as a 2007 model, the Ford Edge became an important player for Ford in the midsize crossover SUV category. Based on the CD3 platform shared with a number of other Blue Oval products, the Edge became a good seller, rolling over 130,000 units off dealer lots its first year alone. A refresh came for the Edge in 2011 with a reworked exterior that kept up with Ford’s then-current design language, as well as a refreshed interior. The basic bones of the CUV hadn’t really changed since 2007, but all that changes for 2015.

Meet the all-new 2015 Ford Edge. Ford says the new crossover is an evolution of the Edge design idea with the new model pushing the envelope in packaging with more equipment and features that customers are looking for these days. A slew of new techno-features like a standard EcoBoost engine, an available 2.7-liter, V-6 EcoBoost engine, an adaptive steering system, active grille shutters for increased aero efficiency, and a laundry list of innovative safety equipment help push the 2015 Edge ahead of its current competition. It seems Ford’s not-so-little crossover is well positioned for the last half of the decade.

A while ago, it was rumored that Ford would unveil the 2015 Edge at the 2013 Los Angeles Auto Show . Well, that was only partially true, as the company only brought a concept version of the vehicle, with the production version set to arrive in the upcoming months.

According to Ford, the new Edge concept is not just a design exercise as it offers "strong hints at the technology, dynamic design and premium craftsmanship that will define the company’s next global utility vehicles."

The concept is defined by a new design language and an updated interior, plus it comes loaded with lots of advanced, automated driving technologies, including self-parking and obstacle avoidance systems, which are currently under development by Ford. According to the first details offered by the company, these technologies preview "a future of semi- and fully autonomous driving options, delivering tomorrow’s technology today."

As part of One Ford , the company will launch a new crossover for sale in late 2014 that is tailored to the universal global preferences of value and style.

The new global SUV will be revealed to the world media at the 2013 LA Auto Show before going on sale almost globally by 2015. So why all the mystery about what the new world-wise five-seat crossover will be?

It is the 2015 Edge, scheduled for display in LA as lightly dressed as a concept car before going on sale in Summer 2014 all over the world.

The current Ford SUV range in Europe consists of the EcoSport and the Kuga that can be categorized as crossovers unlike the new Ford Edge that is planned for launch next year.

The EcoSport and Kuga began life as a "global models" made specifically for certain target markets.

The rest of the Ford model range comprises of hatchbacks, sedans and MPVs that have been popular with folks in continental Europe.

Click past the jump for all the details known so far about the new Ford Edge, including the competition it will face in Europe for the first time.

It looks like Ford is preparing to surprise us with a new generation Edge crossover and if the first leaked image turns out to be true, it will be quite a huge surprise. A super-blurry image outlining future Ford models has hit the Interwebz and, as you can see, the 2015 Edge will feature an impressive evolution over the current generation with design inspired by the new generation Fusion.

The front seems to have been heavily revised with a a more prominent grille, sweptback headlights, plus more pronounced and aggressive lines. All of which are welcome additions to the aging Edge.

Its just our crazy impression, or 2015 will really be a busy year for Ford: there will be a new Mustang, new Edge and possibly new Taurus and Expedition.

We’ll keep a close eye out more a better-resolution image and we are sure one will popup soon enough. Until then, break out your microscopes and check out the above image comparing the 2013 model to the leaked image of the 2015 model.

Ford has announced that the 2012 Edge will be available with the company’s latest EcoBoost 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that delivers up to 30 mpg on the highway and 21 mpg in the city. The only competitive utilities offering higher highway fuel economy than Edge with EcoBoost are a few smaller-size vehicles such as the Ford Escape Hybrid .

The engine delivers a total of 240 HP at 5,500 rpm and a peak torque of 270 lb.-ft. at 3,000 rpm. The engine will be mated to an unique 6F35 six-speed automatic transmission optimized for fuel efficiency through employment of active transmission warm-up to help reduce internal friction as the powertrain approaches normal operating temperature.

"Fuel efficiency is important to our customers," said Amy Marentic, group marketing manager, Large Cars and Crossovers. "Adding the EcoBoost engine to the new Ford Edge crossover makes for 13 vehicles delivering 30 mpg or more in the Ford showroom."

The surf’s coming to SEMA in Las Vegas, only this time, it’s going to come in a decked-out Ford Edge . The Blue Oval partnered with K-Daddyz Kustomz to create a unique 2011 Ford Edge that will be proudly displayed at the 2010 SEMA Show. Awesome, dude!

It won’t be hard to spot the car either as the blue/green/orange paint scheme pretty much gives away the surfing inspiration behind it. The crossover also comes with its own roof-mounted custom surfboard and surfboard rack.

On top of that, the leather and suede interior adds a touch of class to the crossover that’s complemented by dual DVD-mounted head rests that should keep passengers preoccupied when they’re not bathing under the sun, playing on the water or hitting the waves.

Last but not least, the tuners also lowered the Edge’s suspension and gave it 22-inch wheels, making it the perfect ride for beach-loving, wave-crashing surfers everywhere.

Depending on how you enjoy your idle time, the 2011 Ford Edge and 2011 Lincoln MKX ’s new configurators will either be another time-wasting exercise for you or something that could invariably lead to your next car purchase. Either way, both Ford and Lincoln Lincoln wouldn’t mind the two scenarios the least bit, although we’d venture a guess that they’d prefer you choose the latter.

In any case, the Edge, which begins with a base price of $27,220 for the SE model – that’s for the 3.5-liter V6 engine – can be tricked-out to a 3.7-liter V6 engine with a 305-horsepower in the form of the premium Edge Sport all-wheel drive. That model will cost you an additional $10,000 plus at $38,070. Add some more goodies on it and it all tops out at somewhere in the neighborhood of $45,000.

Meanwhile, the Lincoln MKX begins with a base price of $39,145 with an all-wheel drive version that’s slightly higher in price tag at $40,995. Both variants will come with the same 3.7-liter V6 six-speed SelectShift transmission and SYNC as standard features. As far as packages for the MKX are concerned, there’s not much to work with because of the thin choices that go on the SUV.

Okay, we have to admit that when we first heard of this award, we chuckled a bit to ourselves. Pet Safe Vehicle of the Year, really? No one ever really thinks about the safety of their pets when choosing their vehicle except for maybe Bark Buckle UP’s founder Pet Safety Lady, Christina Selter.

"Most people don’t think about it, but in only a 35 mph accident with a 60-pound pet it becomes a 2,700-pound projectile. This will injure the pet, passengers, driver or the pet may escape the vehicle and cause a second accident or become agitated and bite the first responder that is on scene doing their job," stated Selter.

With this in mind, Selter announced this year’s Pet Safe Vehicle of the Year, the Ford Edge . The award was accepted by Brett Burin, Ford Edge Marketing Manager.

"We look ahead with excitement this summer to the arrival of the new 2011 Edge, which adds even more revolutionary technology and class-leading performance. And with a suite of safety features, flexible seating and nearly 70 cubic feet of cargo space, the Ford Edge is perfect for those traveling with pets," said Brett Burin, Ford Edge Marketing Manager.

We still think it is a little silly, but, hey, if it is grand enough to be done at the 2010 New York Auto Show then it has our attention and little Fido’s attention too.
