The Ford Edge crossover is an ideal choice with its bold design, flexible interior, dynamic driving characteristics and long list of exclusive signature technologies and innovative features. And for 2010, Edge's 265-hp engine and six-speed automatic transmission have been refined to increase fuel mileage.
Edge’s 3.5-liter V-6 engine features a strong, lightweight, die-cast aluminum block and lightweight four-valve-per-cylinder heads for smooth operation at high rpm. A 10.3:1 compression ratio and close-coupled catalysts will help it meet stringent ultra-low emission vehicle (ULEV) II regulations. The six-speed automatic transmission uses a wide 6.04:1 gear ratio to deliver good fuel economy and performance. Short first and second gears provide impressive launch and acceleration, while the tall overdrive gears deliver seven percent better fuel economy than a four-speed automatic.
The 2010 Edge Sport continues to be aimed at customers who want a sportier look and a personalized vehicle. The Edge Sport, when equipped with the available 22-inch wheel/tire handling package elevates the already agile Edge to a new level of handling and control. It feels at home on a road course or twisty mountain road, but still delivers a ride agreeable for even a daily driver. High-performance P265/40-R22 Pirelli Scorpion Zero tires are mounted on massive 22-inch forged, polished aluminum wheels delivering a jaw-dropping stance. Performance-tuned shocks, springs and steering components deliver stunning handling.
The Sport model also shows its personality with an eight-piece factory-installed body kit that includes a unique front air dam, side skirts, lower door caps and a rear skirt, all finished in body color instead of the dark lower finish on other Edge models. The front air dam comes with integrated fog lamps and a lower grille insert. Edge Sport is available in four exterior colors: Black, Red Candy, Ingot Silver and a limited-run Sport Blue.
