Wife drives a '15 Edge Sport, just hit 60K miles zero problem. Only replacements have been tires, the Hankooks wear rather quickly, but with the AWD they work very well in snow. One of the best cars we have owned.


Thanks for the report. Yep, a test drive of an used 15 Edge Sport was what started the whole thingy.

Chris,
If some one had that motor in a 150, seems like power wise, should pull a 5-600 lb trailer readonably well. No, it's not going to keep up with a current day 400-500 HP TD. Should not be going 25 like some BN V8 s of you're from 70s and 80s.

According to my brother his does very well towing that much weight. And it should. The 2.7 Ecoboost is rated at 325hp and 400lb-ft of torque and a 10 speed. My 1991 F250 with a 460 engine was rated to pull 12,500lbs with 230hp and 390lb-ft of torque and a 4 speed. In its day it was a towing monster with the highest tow rating of any pickup that year from what I could find.

My 88 TBI and 89 4bbl 454s were 235/385 power specs. They had a 16K gcwr iirc with 4.10 gears, and 19000 with 4.56. Actual tow rating was gcw less tare, so depending upon the cab options etc, that obviously makes the tow rating vary some. Only issue with the th400, was the really tall first gear.
