2014 Ford Edge to Drop V6, Go Turbo 4-Cylinder Only

The Ford Edge received a major overhaul in 2011, getting new sheetmetal, the automaker's new MyFord Touch telematics system and the addition of an EcoBoost 4-cylinder engine. When Ford replaces the current crossover with an all-new product, look for V6 engine options to disappear altogether.

The 2014 Edge will continue to use the EcoBoost 2.0-liter 4-cylinder that will go on sale later this year. As for the other engine, it is likely to be a larger displacement (2.3 to 2.5-liter) turbocharged 4-cylinder.

Based on the same platform that will underpin the next-generation Fusion, look for that sedan to follow the lead of the Malibu and Sonata in ditching a V6 from its lineup as well.

Switching to just 4-cylinder engines should allow Ford to cut down on weight in the rest of the vehicle, something the Edge has been criticized for in the past.

These changes should arrive in the 2014 model year Ford Edge, at dealers in late 2013.
