2018 Ford Edge Sport engine
Sport version of Ford’s popular car is getting power from 3.7-l V-6 unit. It will have significantly higher output than its base drivetrain. New 2018 Ford Edge Sport can develop 300 hp and 280 lb-ft of torque. However, this car is taking more fuel, and estimations about mileage are around 23 mpg. Nevertheless, Ford prepared another engine for Sport version of Edge. It could be 3.5-l V-6 EcoBoost drivetrain. Its combined mpg rating is 27, so it could be more attractive to buyers. Finally, mid-range unit is 2.0-l with turbocharger. It takes position between two models with power output and fuel economy. All drivetrains are sending power through 6-speed automatic transmission. Manual is also an option, but with 5 gears.

There are few differences between regular and Sport edition of Edge. Sharp eyes of fans will spot these immediately. However, bumpers and hood are more aggressive. We can see changes on the tail, and new 2018 Ford Edge Sport brings new spoiler. Cabin will also be under reconstruction. As it is top model in the lineup, this trim will get premium equipment, material and features. Nevertheless, since this is a mid-cycle refreshment, car will take most parts from its predecessor.

On the other hand, we are pretty sure price will be around $42,000. Cost gap between regular and top of the class model is $12,000, so we must expect a lot of features for that difference.
