US:Ford pushes for powertrain Edge with new crossover utes

One engine will power the new Ford Edge, above, and the Lincoln Aviator. (Spy photos by Chris Doane/Brenda Priddy and Co.)

Ford pushes for powertrain Edge with new crossover utes; vehicles set to debut at Detroit show


When the 2007 Ford Edge (shown in these spy photos) and Lincoln Aviator crossover utility vehicles debut at the Detroit auto show in January, be sure to look past the sheetmetal for the underlying powertrain story.

Both models feature an all-new 3.5-liter, 250-hp, 240-lb-ft 24-valve dohc V6 linked to a freshly minted six-speed automatic transmission created for front-drive applications. The tranny, which also can be used in all-wheel-drive vehicles and is capable of handling up to 300 hp and 280 lb-ft of torque, is the product of a joint engineering effort with General Motors.

The engine, which Ford says will power one in five Ford vehicles by 2010, is designed to accommodate hybrid technology, direct gasoline injection and turbocharging.

Look for Edge and Aviator in dealerships next fall, in front- and all-wheel-drive configurations.

More spy shots of the Ford Edge.

My first car was a 67 Mustang Coupe, 2nd one was a 67 Cougar XR-7, 3rd one was a 66 Mustang Coupe. Why did I get rid of these cars for ? I know why, because I'm stupid, stupid, stupid.

My next Ford.....
