Ford Details 2015 Edge’s New Twin-Scroll 2.0L EcoBoost Engine

When the all-new 2015 Ford Edge arrives in US showrooms in early 2015, it will be the first Ford vehicle in North America powered by the new twin-scroll 2.0-liter EcoBoost engine.

Ford says the new twin-scroll 2.0-liter EcoBoost engine is more responsive and fun to drive compared to the current 2.0-liter EcoBoost engine, while also delivering better performance feel.

For the first time, customers choosing the four-cylinder engine in a new Edge will be able to order all-wheel drive. A towing package capable of pulling a 3,500-pound (1,587-kg) trailer will also be available. With the launch of the new twin-scroll EcoBoost engine, Ford expects four-cylinder models to account for more than 30 percent of total Edge sales, compared to less than 5 percent of total Edge sales for the first 11 months of 2014.

The twin-scroll EcoBoost engine is expected to deliver an estimated 245 horsepower and 270 lb-ft (366 Nm) of torque. Final output and EPA-estimated fuel economy ratings will be announced closer to product launch, early in 2015.

In addition to the twin-scroll turbocharger, the 2.0-liter EcoBoost also features new pistons that provide a higher compression ratio (going from 9.3:1 to 9.7:1), a newly designed, integrated exhaust manifold optimized for the twin-scroll setup, a new active oil control system, an active wastegate to more accurately manage boost and torque levels, and a new, high-pressure direct-injection fuel system.

Ford will start production of the twin-scroll 2.0-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder in early 2015 at the Cleveland Engine Plant No. 1, in Brook Park, Ohio, following an investment of nearly $200 million and the addition of 450 new jobs. The engines will be shipped to Oakville, Ontario, in Canada, where the 2015 Edge is produced. Currently, four-cylinder engines for the Edge are imported from Europe.
