One of my favorite vehicles I have ever owned was my 2010 Ford Edge. It has been several years since I have owned my Edge but I rave about it constantly to friends and family, even to this day. So when I got invited to drive the all-new 2015 Ford Edge, not only was I ecstatic, but I also asked where I could send my blank check. Joking… sorta. I knew that once I sat in this swanky CUV, I wouldn’t want to get out. I imagined a scene from a movie where they literally would have to pry me out of it while I tried to hold on for dear life.
We arrived in Phoenix, Arizona for our first impression drive. The weather was beautiful and the routes were perfect for testing out the power, suspension, and handling of the vehicle on the open road.
The 2015 Ford Edge has been reimagined with a stronger, more athletic shape, retooled to meet higher expectations for quality, and reengineered to add more features and technology to provide a more rewarding and engaging driving experience.
The exterior has retained its beautiful, iconic silhouette, but has incorporated some serious changes like a redesigned front grille, new body structure, new multi-link independent rear suspension, better curve control and more.
For the first half of the drive, Kristin (my drive partner from indeeph20.com) and I drove the Sport model. The Sport comes with a 2.7-liter EcoBoost V6, as oppose to the standard 2.0-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder that comes in all other models.
The new V6 delivers a small increase in horsepower over the previous 3.7-liter V6 engine, and a 25 percent increase in torque – for a total of 315 horsepower and 350 lb.-ft. of torque.
With improved damping and control, the Edge Sport offers 15 percent to 20 percent better overall road-holding capability – giving the driver more control, sharper steering and greater confidence.
For the second half of the drive we swapped the Ford Edge Sport for the Titanium. I couldn’t wait to drive the Titanium as this would be my preferred model if we purchased an Edge again.
The interior of the all-new Ford Edge has changed drastically since my 2010 model. For one the center stack now features physical buttons and is equipped with MyFord Touch.
There are also a ton of storage compartments which is great for parents.
Both the front and rear passenger doors received a design change, and we happen to think it’s for the better.
Here is a side by side comparison of the 2014 rear passenger door next to the 2015. As you can see, there is a significant difference.
Not only did the interior get a makeover, but the 2015 Edge gained 3.9 inches in length and 1.3 inches in height.
The all-new Edge cabin is larger than the outgoing model in nearly every measure. There is additional headroom for all passengers, and legroom for second-row passengers increases 1.0 inch.
Cargo capacity also is up, with 39.2 cubic feet of space behind the second row of seats – 7.0 cubic feet more than the previous model.
Technology impresses in the all-new Edge. On top of the new features like:
- Adaptive Cruise Control and Collision Warning with Brake Support
- Inflatable Outboard Rear Safety Belts
- Lane Departure Warning and Lane Keep Assist
- Hands-Free Liftgate with Two Sensors
- 2X Fast-Charging USB
- Curve Control
- Heated Steering Wheel
- Individual Tire Pressure Monitoring
- And More…
The Edge also features a 180° front camera system and washer! I wish I had recorded the front washer in action, but it really makes life easier and safer being able to clean the camera with a push of a button.
One thing I didn’t mention before is actually my favorite feature of the 2015 Edge entirely. Parking can be a pain. I live near San Francisco and visit frequently and I can’t tell you how much I dread trying to find a parking spot I feel comfortable enough parallel parking in. Often times I jump out of the vehicle and have my husband do it for me. However the new Edge is equipped with an advanced parking assist system that will parallel and perpendicular park for me. Want to know something even better? Not only will the car help me to parallel park, but it will get me OUT of that spot as well.
Getting back into the Ford Edge now with all these new features and changes really confirmed how much I miss this CUV. It’s a great option if you are looking for a fantastically built CUV that can grow with your family.
The 2015 Ford Edge comes in 4 different models: SE, SEL, Titanium, and Sport. The SE starting at only $28,995. Head over to your local Ford dealership and test drive the all-new Edge. I would love to get your feedback!
