Exclusive to the Euro-market Edge is a 2.0L diesel engine, while no gasoline-fed engine options are available. As reported, the SUV will include a diesel-powered EcoBlue version which is able to generate 238 hp (175 KW) thanks to its high-tech bi-turbocharging system. It is expected that the Edge will be highly optimized in terms of harshness and vibration, noise and low-end torque, and provide linear and smooth acceleration too.
