• 2012 Ford Edge EcoBoost

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."

I don’t like the fact that it is a hybrid car, but I must say that it is already looking great on that sleek body paint and aesthetic design, and I hope that the interior of if is impressive as well as its exterior.
