2016 Ford Edge price, specs, mpg – The first generation of the Edge has been sold between 2006 and 2014 and while it was not the best selling Ford, it was certainly a very good car as well as it was among the best in its class. However, because the design was getting old a new model has been released in the late 2014, the new generation Edge which uses a new platform, new and improved engines as well as a brand new design which is a lot more impressive than that of the previous model. However, unlike the previous model, this one is going to be updated with the new Ford Edge 2016 and that’s because Ford wants to keep it up to date with the latest technologies available for their cars.

While the platform or even the design will not change all that much, the new model is expected to be more fuel efficient as well as it should be better to drive than before. On top of all that, a new type of transmission might be installed on the Edge, thus becoming one of the first cars to get it. The 2016 Ford Edge release date has not been officially unveiled just yet but considering the current model is very new, we expect the 2016 car to get on the market some time at the end of that year. The price will likely remain very similar to the current model and a base price of $29,000 sounds perfectly reasonable.
New Ford Edge 2016 specs
Engine wise, the 2.0 liter EcoBoost inline 4 is still going to be offered as the entry level offering which is great considering that other Ford models come with this engine as an option. It is good for 245 horsepower and more than 260 lb-ft of torque which is plenty for its size. The mid-range 3.5 liter V6 on the other hand is going to be discontinued this time and replaced with a smaller 2.3 liter EcoBoost inline 4 with around 300 horsepower and 310 lb-ft of torque, more than the old V6. The top of the range model of the new Ford Edge 2016 on the other hand will keep its 2.7 liter EcoBoost V6 but this time the power should be increased to around 320 horsepower and 360 lb-ft of torque. All of these will now come as standard with an all new 9 speed automatic as well as either front wheel drive for the base model or all wheel drive for the other two. The new transmission should drop the fuel consumption by a small margin as well as make the smallest engine a bit more capable thanks to the better ratios it will get.
2016 Ford Edge reviews
Its exterior will not get any massive changes which is perfectly fine for us considering the current model is one of the best looking mid-size crossovers on the market. However, we do expect a few special editions models to roll out with the 2016 Ford Edge which are going to make the car a bit more exclusive than it is. New wheels and colors should be available on these are well as a new LED system for the headlights.
Inside the cabin of the 2016 Ford Edge there are going to be a bit more changes than on the exterior. Firstly, the car will receive a lot more safety equipment as standard than before. This will include a frontal collision warning with brake assist, a lane keep assist system as well as an adaptive cruise control system. All of these should allow the driver to relax more while using the car as well as they will keep all the passengers safe no matter what. The infotainment system will also be upgraded to Ford’s latest unit which will now be compatible with Apple’s Car Play as well as Google’s Android Auto.
