2012 Ford Edge EcoBoost to get 30 MPG on the Highway

Ford just announced that the 2012 Ford Explorer EcoBoost is officially rated at 20 mpg in the city and 28 mpg on the highway. Ford has also announced that the four-cylinder EcoBoost engine will also be available in the 2012 Ford Edge, but the official MPG stats have been announced. According to Ford’s dealers, the 2012 Ford Edge EcoBoost will get a 30 mpg highway rating.

Dealers claim that the updated order guide for the 2012 Edge rates the 2.0L EcoBoost engine at 21 mpg in the city and 30 mpg on the highway. The official power numbers haven’t been released, but expect the engine to have around the same stats as it does in the Explorer: 240 horsepower and 270 lb-ft. of torque. Just like in the Explorer, the 2.0L engine is only available with front-wheel-drive.
