2015 Ford Edge earns five star safety rating

2015 Ford Edge earns five star safety rating


Another of Car Nation Canada's brands has achieved a five
star safety rating in the U.S. giving you even more of an excuse to try the 2015 Ford Edge!

The 2015 model is an improved version of an already good crossover
SUV. That hard work has now been rewarded with a five star NCAP rating. Add to
the "Good" rating from the IIHS and we have a safe family vehicle that offers a
lot for the money.

NCAP awarded five stars for frontal crash and side crash
tests and four stars for the rollover test, giving it an overall rating of five
stars. That's quite an improvement over previous models. The 2014 Ford Edge
managed four stars with the frontal crash rating pulling it down. After a lot
of work by Ford, that low point has been completely addressed.

2015 Ford Edge

The 2015 Ford Edge is a quality crossover SUV that offers
everything a family needs without the premium price tag. With big improvements
in safety, design and materials, it's now a compelling buy.

The changes to the 2015 Ford Edge include now being based on
the very successful Fusion platform. The design has been pared down with less
chrome, a more subtle grille, modern front end, detailing on the profile and a
tidy rear. It's a good design that elevates the Edge into the more premium
category on looks alone.

Inside, the improvements abound. Better cabin materials,
better design, more technology and a much improved passenger experience are the
least you can expect. Ford have gone back to basics and removed much of the
frippery. Controls are now back to knobs and switches and are all the better
for it.

Under the hood is either a 2.0-litre EcoBoost engine that
delivers 245 hp and 270 lb-ft of torque, a 3.5-litre V6 with 280 hp and a new
2.7-litre V6 engine that’s good for 315 hp and 375 lb-ft of torque. All use a
six-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters.

The 2015 Ford Edge comes in SE, SEL, Titanium and Sport
trim. The Edge SE offers alloy wheels, power everything, air conditioning,
cruise control and Ford SYNC. The SEL adds dual zone climate control, upgraded
upholstery, heated mirrors, LED turn signals, leather steering wheel and
different exterior trim.

The Edge Titanium adds different alloy wheels, premium Sony
audio, MyFord Touch, power tailgate and lots of additional options such as
panoramic sunroof, cameras, remote engine start and more. The Edge Sport uses
that 2.7-litre engine and has tuned suspension, unique exterior trim, different
alloy wheels and a range of other treats.
