Ford Edge will use the 2,7-l V6

A Sport version of the vehicle will be exclusively available with a 2.7-liter EcoBoost twin-turbocharged V6 expected to deliver more than 300 horsepower.

Photos: Ford unveils 2015 Edge crossover SUV with special guests | MLive.com

Thatīs the same engine as in the coming F-150. A hint about the horsepower. ....The current Duratec 37 has 305 hp but itīs one liter larger. Expect the new 2,7 liter in Mustang

The Edge Sport, meanwhile, has perhaps the most exciting of the available engine trio, packing Ford's new 2.7-liter, twin-turbocharged V6 under its hood. For those who need a refresher, the 2.7T is slated to arrive first in the next-generation F-150 before reporting for duty in the Edge. It boasts a block made from the same compacted graphite iron found in the F-Series Super Duty's big-dog 6.7-liter PowerStroke diesel. In such a small engine, Ford says a CGI block does wonders for the car's noise, vibration, and harshness characteristics, not to mention durability. Sadly, Ford isn't offering specifics on this engine's performance, aside from saying it will produce over 300 horsepower when it finally goes on sale.

Aside from the DI/TT aspect, does anyone know how similar or different the new 2.7L is to the current 3.5L Ecoboost?
I got owned about my lack of knowledge in another thread.

I could see the baby ecoboost to be a great option for 2wd or fleet trucks.

Nw thats a perfect vehicle for a 2.7....NOT a half ton truck. The new Edge with that engine should be a hoot to drive.

Well, the 2.7EB is likely to produce similar power to the 3.7 N/A motor, which is commonly found in fleet vehicles. Just because it wouldn't be a good fit for you doesn't mean it won't have a market.

I can remember a few years ago when many here said the 3.5L wasn't enough engine.

New Mustang will have the new Eco-Boost 2.3L available as an option. First time a Mustang has come w/a 2.3L turbo since 1986, but this was a completely different engine.

It's not enough engine. But Ford is committed to it for some stupid reason. Why in the world do you think Ford has gone through the lengths they have to make the trucks lighter? V8 power with V6 mpgs just wasn't quite true. Why, because it wasn't enough engine for a Half ton and it couldn't give people what Ford claimed it could. They are trying to right that ship. They are gonna do whatever it takes to make Their EB investment pay off come hell or high water.
You know, there are some EB owners who are fine with what they have. They don't haul or tow or care about those capabilities. But I hear tons of EB owners who man up and admit that they bought the hype and they regret their choice. And then there's the crowd who know they got snookered but just don't want to admit it and go on about how great their EB is. Well keep telling yourself that boys.

If only Ford kept the Ranger, this little EcoBoost would be great for it.

If you took some time to research a little, you'd discover that the 2014 F-150 is about 500-700 LBs heavier than the Ram and the GM twins. The F-150 with the extra weight is getting damned near what the others are getting in MPG's except for the ecodiesel.

So many people don't bother to educate themselves and they buy more truck than they need totally ignoring the fact that power requires fuel.

This is just sexist and ignorant and you should revise your post. Better yet, I'll do it for ya. For those who would like to know, the 2015 Mustang 2.3L is rated at a top speed of 145 MPH. It made it to the top 15 list of the fastest production 4 cylinders in the world. http://api.viglink.com/api/click?for...ylinder%20Cars

All I will say here it that I too was a skeptic at first. Then I drove a 2012 F150 with the egobooster. And all I can say is wow. That truly is a great little engine. It sounds to me that daytomann hasn't driven a truck set up this way yet. And he really should go rent one and put it to the test. I think he'd be surprised. But that's just my opinion. Oh and I think he should watch Toms towing test videos he posted with his own truck.

These statements are insane. I have a 1967 F 250 with a big block that has under 200 HP. It can do EVERYTHING. There are those with the I6 150 HP 300 motor that can doe everything. Any base model truck has the capabilities to do anything needed. Go to Africa and you will seen minivans used as Mac trucks! The numbers game is for insecure teens.

If wonder how many "tons of EB owners" is. 1? Maybe 3?

Myself and 2 others I work with are 3.5 EB owners. Model years 11, 12, and 13. No issues, tows much better than a 5.0, pretty damn good mpgs on all 3 trucks.

Myself and 2 coworkers disagree with you.
