Default 2012 Ford Edge to hit 30 mpg with 2.0-liter EcoBoost

2012 Ford Edge to hit 30 mpg with 2.0-liter EcoBoost


Click the image to open in full size.

The 2012 Ford Edge is set to be available with four-cylinder EcoBoost power with the addition of a turbocharged 2.0-liter engine, and reports are emerging that the vehicle will be able to return some fairly impressive fuel economy numbers. According to Ford Inside News, the Environmental Protection Agency has concluded testing, and the Edge 2.0 EcoBoost has managed to eek out 30 mpg highway. That's three miles per gallon better than the comparable 3.5-liter V6-equipped 2011 model and two miles per gallon better than the Explorer 2.0-liter EcoBoost, whose 28 mpg highway figure was just made official last week.

Ford Inside News also reports that the engine will continue to turn out 240 horsepower and 275 pound-feet of torque when tucked into the Edge. While we're betting that while our right foot will likely miss the extra 45 horsepower produced by the 3.5-liter V6, the extra 22 pound-feet of torque mustered up by the forced-induction four-cylinder should help make up the gap. Our wallets probably won't mind skipping the gas station a little more often, too.

If their getting 30mpg in the Edge, this makes me even more excited for the next Escape/Vertek both in Ecoboost and Hybrid form. Ford will once again regain highest mpg SUV

Very happy to hear this! 30mpg is great for this truck.

As with Hoovey, i'm also looking forward to what the escape and escape hybrid will bring to the CUV market.

30mpg is real good, but with those wheels? If i remember correctly, I saw an article saying those 20" ford edge rim & tire are about 80lbs

Hopefully not more like what they are doing with the Explorer Ecoboost. There is no way in hell I would ever pay more to "downgrade" to a turbo 4 from a V6.

Yeah, they should be about on par. Nevertheless, it should cost quite a bit less than the Highlander Hybrid which I just noticed now starts at $38k!
