2015 Ford Edge Tampa FL
The completely redesigned 2015 Ford Edge in Tampa, FL is considered by Ford to be one of its most important vehicles. With its brand new exterior, slew of new interior entertainment and safety features, and new engine options, Ford touts the Edge as one of its most versatile vehicles ever and says sales across the market mark this crossover as one of their most popular. Designed on a new platform, this powerful little car may be one of the impressive vehicles on the market from Ford, which is saying a lot considering the all new 2015 Ford F-150.
Longer and taller than its predecessor, the 2015 Ford Edge provides drivers with plenty of space to go along with its surprisingly tight handling and plentiful amenities. Couple that with a powerful engine and a fair number of safety features, and its easy to see why Ford believes this is such an appealing crossover SUV.
A New Interior to Match a New Look
While the 2015 Ford Edge in Tampa, FL will be offered in its usual SE, SEL, and Sport trims, Ford has added the brand new Titanium trim level, which, along with the Sport models, will be supported by Ford’s new adaptive steering system, which reduces low-speed steering effort in small and slow areas such as parking lots, all while sharpening high-speed responsiveness like pull the wheel hard to the side on the highway.
Other features include a 180-degree front parking camera coupled with parallel parking assist, a heated steering wheel as well as heated and ventilated front seats, an available panoramic sunroof, and the most current version of the Sync/MyFord Touch, accessible on the 8-inch touchscreen mounted in the console that also offers hands-free phone and entertainment functions. New safety features will include a rearview camera, a feature standard in every model, and other things such as blind-spot monitoring, lane-keeping assist, inflatable rear safety belts and Ford’s new front passenger knee airbag which inflates from the glovebox door.
On the Edge of Power and Speed
Of course, under the hood is the standard 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine or the optional 3.5-liter V6. The former can get up to 245 horsepower and 270 pound-feet of torque. A brand new turbocharged 2.7-liter V6 is also available, but only for the Sport trim level. Considering Ford says it can get at least 300 hp, it seems to be plenty powerful for the 2015 Ford Edge in Tampa, FL. All three engines will be coupled with a six-speed automatic transmission with steering-wheel-mounted paddle shifters. The Edge will be available in front wheel drive or an all-wheel-drive system. A properly equipped 2015 Ford Edge should be able to tow up to 3,500 pounds.
