The 2012 Ford Edge is improving fuel economy efficiency with new 2.0 liter EcoBoost four-cylinder engine six-speed automatic transmission. The 2012 Ford Edge make owner this car feel safe and supporting green car.
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.
“With more than 500,000 sold since its debut in late 2006, Ford Edge has been enthusiastically embraced by customers because of its unrivaled combination of smart technology, a great driving experience, safety and outstanding fuel economy,” said Darci Gurney, Edge marketing manager. “We have added even more content for the 2012 model year.”
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.
Standard on 2012 Edge is the 3.5-liter V6, which produces 285 horsepower, tops among standard V6 competitors, and delivers 19 mpg city and 27 mpg highway (front-wheel drive). The Edge Sport, with a 3.7-liter V6, increases performance to best-in-class 305 horsepower with excellent fuel economy of 18 mpg city and 25 mpg highway (front-wheel drive).
Each engine in the Edge lineup is mated to a fuel-saving six-speed automatic transmission.
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).
To earn an IIHS Top Safety Pick, a vehicle must receive a rating of “good” in offset frontal-, side- and rear-impact crash tests and roof strength evaluations, as well as offer electronic stability control. AdvanceTrac® with RSC® (Roll Stability Control™) is standard on every Edge.
Edge was the launch vehicle for industry-first Ford SYNC® with MyFord Touch driver connect technology. This technology provides an intuitive, easy-to-use system for accessing a multifunction color display and infotainment color display.
Options for 2012 include one 4.2-inch color LCD screen in the instrument cluster and one 4.2-inch color LCD screen in the center stack, all the way to two 4.2-inch color LCD screens in the instrument cluster and one 8-inch color LCD touch screen in the center stack, which can be controlled by voice commands or a five-way control on the steering wheel.
