2.7L Ecoboost in Edge SEL

By Phil B.

I am very much intrigued with Ford’s plan to provide the new 2.7 L Ecoboost engine in the 2015 Edge. What may be very disappointing to me is how in the past Ford creates exclusive model packages such that you cannot setup the vehicle as I want. I have been an Explorer owner since 1993 and am now ready to down size to Edge but I still would like a 2 inch trailer hitch and roof rack. I would also prefer to have more rubber between the winter potholes and the expensive rims. I hope to have the option to build my Edge with the 2.7L Ecoboost, 2 inch hitch, roof rack, and tires for light off road and Iowa winter road conditions. We will see soon.
