Anyone drive 2012 Edge Ecoboost ?

Just curious if anyone has driven one or as plans to drive one? I see my wife has been eyeing them and 30 mpg would be our 08 edge with 3.5L by 8 mpg

I am only reading up on the F150 EB engine, and note that the max advertised mileage is only 'attainable' by the trucks with the right ratio gears. In the Edge, almost no one is going to try towing much with them and the ads might be right on. I drove a Mazda CX7 with the turbo four and I chickened out at 118mph and climbing--yet, it was getting 25mph when I drove it normally.
Go drive one and see what its like.

May have to test drive when time permits, but dealer lot test drives never really amount to much to me .. Real world feeback from one whom drives its daily would be better suited for me. Just saying.

I own a ecoboost F150 and love it, I also drive a ecoboost Edge. It was a good drive, quick acceleration. The only reason I did not buy, we specifically wanted a Sport model, and the sport did not come with ecoboost, just a 3.7 v6. Otherwise, I would own a ecoboost edge. Its a good combo, power, economy, great passing gear.

My mom picked up a 2012 Edge ecoboost and so far it has been hitting right around the 30 mpg mark, sometimes a little lower, sometimes a little higher.

I probably should add that those are mostly highway miles. It has over 15,000 miles on it already.

Im thinking of trading off the 96 Explorer and getting a 2012 Edge with 10-15K miles. Some have the 4 cylinder turbo.... any updates from anyone or more opinions ? IM somewhat worried about down the road at 100k miles .

I haven't but are you saying you only get 22 mpg in your 08 edge? I have a 2011 SEL 3.5l Edge and get 26.5-28.5 on our monthly 720 mile round trip that we take. We are loaded about 600+ lbs on this trip. It is rated at 27 hwy so very impressed we are getting good mileage. We drive 3mph over the speed limit but not over 70 most of the time. 75 gets the 26.5 you see and 70 gets 28-28.5. If you are speeding or flooring it from stops, then you are not likely going to get much, if any, better mileage with an ecoboost. The key is stay in the low rpms on the hwy and stay out of boost. Good luck.

I am assuming that yours is a 4 cyl, front wheel drive version. I have an 08 AWD with the V6 in it and it pulls right around 20-22 mpg. I know that the 4 bangers pull better mileage.

Definetly not AWD but it is a 3.5l (v6). Does your sticker say 22 mpg hwy or 25? Also is this 20-22 just hwy or average? I am averaging 21.9 mpg for the last 17k miles. Everyones driving habits are different. I don't beat EPA city avg very often. My truck said 14 mpg city and got 12.5. My edge says 19 mpg and I get 17-17.8. But I get at least sticker (maybe +1) on the hwy. Driving habits and local terrain/trip terrain make a huge difference.

Went ahead and looked it up anyway...your 2008 AWD Edge is rated 22 mpg Hwy. So you are getting good numbers. The 2012 AWD Ecoboost is rated at 28 hwy if you are going back that route. Good luck and let us know how it goes. They have definetly improved these vehicles in the last few years.
