"OK, a bit of an exaggeration, but the 2015 Ford Edge Sport has more than enough power, and it handles really, really well … for a tall, 4,300-or-so-pound sport-utility vehicle."Yet another review from Automobile Magazine, also glowing. I'm becoming more convinced I should skip the MKX and get the Edge Sport.
the MKX is so much better looking vehicle."OK, a bit of an exaggeration, but the 2015 Ford Edge Sport has more than enough power, and it handles really, really well … for a tall, 4,300-or-so-pound sport-utility vehicle."
But remember, that same 2.7L EcoBoost is going into the sweet looking 2016 MKX also...
I will be skipping the MKX. The MKX has more bells and whistles, but you are going the pay for it, and if the numbers LincolnFanFI posted are correct the MKX is not worth it to me. My lease is up in October, and I hope the 2016 Edge Sport will be available with the 21inch wheels and SYNC 3 by then.Yet another review from Automobile Magazine, also glowing.

The Titanium model does not come with the 2.7EB. I guess everyone feels different, and I have the 22inch wheels on my 2013 Edge Sport, and the ride is not harsh to me. I never heard my wife or any passengers complain about the ride either. I will not buy the 2016 Edge Sport without the 21inch wheels. If Ford though the ride would be, so harsh that consumers would not buy then they would not offer it, but they do. I see a lot of Sport Edges, so a lot of people do not think the ride is harsh.I would stick with the Titanium with the 2.7L. The Sport is really only Sport in appearance, relative to the Titanium, and you have to live with the additional harshness. Ford’s typically ride firm already, and combined with the short wheelbase, you are pushing the envelope with 21” wheels. They may have improved the dampening, but you can only do so much without variable dampening. Besides, it’s not like anyone is going to track a 4300lbs Edge to gain a fraction of a tenth of a second with the Sport package. So you really only pay for the looks. The MKX would benefit greatly with the variable dampening. That I would love to drive and it is worth the price of admission over the Titanium.
Well that's your opinion and you're entitled to it. You must have a bad back or something as the ride does not bother me.The Sport ride is harsh.
Tolerable in the front seats. Miserable in the back seats.
This is hardly an opinion.
And oops, my bad on the 2.7L. I thought I read it comes in Titanium.
