The principal variant of Edge is supposed to carry a V6 unit of 3.5 liters under it hood whose power output ranges up to 280 hp. His unit is capable of producing a torque of 250 pounds per feet.
The next engine in the line-up is the one with the maximum output. It is the 2.7-liter unit that produces up to 315 hp. And the final will be 2.0 liter with 245 hp. The latest addition to the range is, however, a turbocharged inline 4 cylinder unit with a greater output to capacity ratio.
2017 Ford Edge – Transmission, Fuel Efficiency:
Unlike the engine specs, there isn’t much diversity when it comes to 2017 Ford Edge transmission details. Nevertheless, just for the sake of it, there is the automatic and manual option. Other than that, all the variants are supposed to come with pretty much the same gear unit i.e. a six-speed one.
