The base engine on all but Sport models is a 2.0L "Ecoboost" 4-cylinder unit that uses turbocharging and direct injection to make an impressive 245 horsepower and 270 lb-feet of torque. The optional upgrade is a 3.5L V6 that produces 287 horsepower and 254 lb-feet of torque.
The Sport trim offers one engine option, a 2.7L "Ecoboost" V6 good for 315 horsepower and 350 lb-feet of torque. All engines are mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission.
Even in the base SE trim, the Edge comes well equipped. Standard equipment includes 18-inch aluminum wheels, deep tinted glass and power-adjustable mirrors. The radio is an AM/FM/MP3-compatible unit that includes Bluetooth and Ford's SYNC system. Convenience features are the usual fare, including remote keyless entry, cruise control, a leather/metal shift knob and four 12-volt power outlets.

The Ford Edge remains mostly unchanged for 2016. The biggest change is to how the Edge is steered. A new adaptive steering system has been added as standard across the entire Edge lineup. The new steering promises to make the Edge both more fun to drive and easier to maneuver at low speeds. Adaptive steering achieves this by decreasing the number of turns needed to go lock to lock at parking lot speeds while increasing the amount input needed to steer the car at high speeds. The slower steering at high speeds works to both increase stability and allow for more precise inputs.
The 2016 Ford Edge is a vast improvement over its predecessor. The Edge is often compared to the Nissan Murano, the Kia Sorento and the Chevrolet Equinox however, the Edge comes with a more powerful set of powertrains and more competitive fuel economy. Passenger volume, rear legroom and cargo capacity are among the best in the category.
