2011 Ford Edge Ecoboost

Is 30 the new 20? It is when it comes to highway mileage for crossover vehicles. Though the official ratings are not yet on the FuelEconomy.gov website, FordInsideNews is reporting that the pairing of the Ford Edge with the turbocharged Ecoboost 2.0 liter engine will be good for 21 miles per gallon in the city and 30 mpg highway, with a combined rating around 24. This is a 10 percent improvement over the normally aspirated V-6 version. That puts it squarely in the range predicted when we took a quick spin in an Ecoboost-powered Edge last January.

The new engine is expected to produce 230hp, which should be enough to move two tons of CUV with some alacrity. Pricing, availability, and other details are still upcoming.
