Seems to be a logical evolution of the 2nd gen Edge

I assume you mean that the new MKC is Edge Lite? MKC is, after all, based on the Ford Escape, which is based on the compact Ford Focus; and the new Edge is based on the mid-size Ford Fusion.

Default 2015 Ford Edge

saw this on a yahoo tech article... looking good!



The 2015 Ford Edge comes standard with a passel of driver-assist technologies like adaptive steering, collision braking, and a 180-degree front camera for around $32K. (Ford)

(good article about car tech in general by the way)

I don't think that is a render. Like TangoRed said, its already been officially unveiled.

Ford is doing a nice job with the styling of all on their SUV/CUV's. I even like the funky looks of the Flex. The new Lincoln MKC looks good too.

Design - evolutionary and just OK for me. However, technologically and refinement-wise, nice step up and a great platform for the upcoming MKX.

Interesting. You post over and over how awful the Lexus spindle grill but say this looks good? The grill is as large if not bigger and seems awfully close to Hyundai's grill. Confused...








Hyundai called and wants their grill and SUV back

It's a pretty direct rip from the 2nd gen Highlander, IMO:

let me help with your confusion. first, this edge grill is nowhere near as big as an f-sport spindle grill which goes from top to bottom of the front and while it may be distinctive, i just don't think it's attractive or classy. we can agree to disagree, but there's probably as many who agree with me as agree with you, but it doesn't matter... if enough people like it, great.



about comparisons with hyundai's santa fe grill, we could go back forth about the numerous differences i see and you apparently don't see, but it's not worth it as neither your mind or mine is likely to be changed. people will see what they see.

Default 2015 Ford Edge holds line on pricing, starts at $28,100*


Quote:
The Ford Edge gets an updated platform, bolder styling and a standard 2.0-liter turbocharged EcoBoost engine pumping out 245 horsepower and 270 pound-feet of torque for the 2015 model year. You might expect that all those new features would result in a big price bump, but you'd be wrong. Ford is keeping costs identical to the 2014 model with a starting MSRP of $28,100 (*plus an $895 destination charge), according to Edmunds. Ford spokesperson William Mattiace confirmed the numbers to Autoblog.

That's a pretty good deal, but the real ticket here might be the model's Sport trim. Buyers get a 2.7-liter, twin-turbocharged V6 EcoBoost engine with over 300 horsepower and standard adaptive steering for $28,600 plus destination. That's just $500 more than the base model.

Pricing for the Titanium trim has not yet been announced, but it'll be a short wait to find out. Mattiace tells Autoblog that full pricing and the configuration for the model will launch on November 5. He has also confirmed that the 2015 Edge will begin hitting dealers in the first quarter of 2015.

The 2015 Edge is the first Ford in the US to come with a standard EcoBoost engine, although a more traditional naturally aspirated 3.5-liter V6 is also an option. All models come with a six-speed automatic, with the 2.0L EcoBoost available exclusively in front-wheel drive and the 2.7L and 3.5L models gaining optional all-wheel drive traction. The Sport and Titanium trims have active steering, and other tech upgrades include active grille shutters for select models and an air-curtain system to improve aerodynamics around the wheels. Look for even more details when the configurator comes online.

This rig looks great! I like the way the shoulder line lines up with the top of the headlights. Very clean and easy to comprehend at first glance. And there is no nerdy sail window up front. Everything looks trim, modern, and sporty. Should be a very big hit for Ford. The only thing I worry about is reliability. The majority of Ford SUV's rank at the bottom.
