The Ford Edge hits our shores

The Edge is Ford’s largest SUV to date and joins the Kuga and EcoSport to complete its SUV line-up –  and the Irish order books are now open.

One powerplant offers 180hp with a 0-100km/h acceleration time of 9.9 seconds and a max speed of 200km/h, which is mated to a six-speed manual gearbox. The other option is a 210hp Bi-turbo unit that does the 0-100km/h dash in 9.4 seconds with a top speed of 211km/h and is mated to a six-speed PowerShift automatic gearbox that can be operated via steering standard wheel-mounted paddles. Both engines feature Ford’s Intelligent All-Wheel Drive system and deliver 5.8 litres/100km (or 48.7mpg in old money) and 149g/km CO2, placing it in tax band C, which is €390 per year.
