The outstanding fuel economy of the Ford Edge improved even more with the arrival of Ford’s new 2.0-liter EcoBoost® four-cylinder engine for the 2012 model year.
The refreshed version of the popular crossover, which went on sale in late 2010, featured the debut of industry-first MyFord Touch® driver connect technology and unsurpassed fuel economy.
The new 2.0-liter Ford EcoBoost four-cylinder engine, with turbocharging and direct injection, delivers 21 mpg city and 30 mpg highway, becoming the 13th Ford model/powertrain combination to deliver an EPA fuel economy rating of 30 mpg or more.
The Edge EcoBoost four-cylinder produces 240 horsepower and 270 lb.-ft. of torque.
Also exclusive to 2012 Edge with EcoBoost are aerodynamic enhancements and other technologies to help save fuel, including side door rocker moldings and active grille shutters. Active grille shutters help optimize aerodynamics by using vents to control airflow through the grille to the cooling system and engine compartment.
If air is required to cool the engine, the vents are opened. If no airflow is needed the vents are shut, contributing to significantly reduced aerodynamic drag.
Decreasing both road and wind noise was a key area of focus with the refreshed Edge, and that story continues with the 2012 model. To further improve interior quietness, expandable foam baffles are now used in the fenders and D-pillars while a thicker windshield with acoustic laminated glass helps decrease wind noise.
New for 2012 is the 10-way power lumbar and reclining driver’s seat (standard on SEL and Limited) and passenger seat (standard on Limited).
The 2012 Ford Edge offers a suite of innovative safety technologies and, like the 2011 Edge, is expected to earn a Top Safety Pick rating from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (for models built after February 2011).
