Ford accidentally shows the 2015 Edge crossover

Article by Christian A., on February 15, 2013

Ford has presented the all-new version of the Ford Edge crossover, confirming our suspicions all along that an exciting 2015 Edge will soon be unveiled. The present Edge uses the same platform as the 2012 Fusion sedan, which was replaced with the very fashionable 2013 model. Ford introduced the 2015 Edge to analysts at Deutsche Bank.

The 2015 Edge has more stunning and bold lines similar to what the 2013 Fusion offers. It also has a big hexagonal grille, which uses three silver bars and the creased character line. We also see big wheels, chrome detailing, and a raked windshield. The Fusion made a total transformation while the next Edge didn’t make as big a departure from the current design. Notably, the 2015 Edge’s grille is very different from that of any Ford model.

It’s surprising that it doesn’t have more of the Aston-Martin-like themes used on the 2013 Fusion and 2014 Fiesta or the double-grille seen on the 2014 Transit Connect and 2013 EcoSport.

The next Edge will have many of the powertrain options offered on the Fusion. The 2.0-liter turbo-four is expected to make a comeback. However, it’s not yet confirmed if the Edge will be available with the smaller 2.5- and 1.6-liter engines or if it will feature the hybrid and plug-in hybrid setups.

It’s probable that there will still be a six-cylinder option, whether it’s the present car’s 3.5- or 3.7-liter V-6 or an EcoBoost turbo-six. Ford has been saying that it wants to soon have an all-turbocharged engine range.

It’s also likely that there will just be one transmission choice – a six-speed automatic. Customers would also be likely to have either front- or all-wheel drive. In 2007, the current Edge had its debut as a competitor to the Nissan Murano. It was subjected to a major facelift in 2011 which is when it was equipped with the highly criticized MyFord Touch system.
