The Edge is a leading SUV from Ford and is produced primarily for the American and European markets. Apart from a very large and high-quality interior, the Ford Edge offers industry leading extras that can be purchased as an option giving you loads of choice when it comes to owning your dream car.
The Ford Edge combines a powerful engine with medium emissions and has very good braking performance plus industry leading safety assistants. The large trunk is also expandable giving you more than enough storage for those family holiday trips and the all-wheel drive system enables safe driving on any road condition.
The Ford Edge is only available with a diesel engine on the European and UK market. However, this impresses with engines up to 238 hp and top speeds of up to 211 km/h with good fuel consumption. The CO₂ emissions specified by Ford are in the average range for larger cars and also result in efficiency class A. However, this only applies to the new EcoBlue diesel engine, which Ford has developed for commercial vehicles, among other things.
Compared to other engines, this Edge engine results in lower emissions. Although the European version was equipped with all-wheel drive, it is possible to shift all power transmission to either the front or rear axle. Thus, a four-wheel drive becomes a front- or rear-wheel drive, depending on your preference. This is particularly advantageous on unpaved roads or when the car is stuck in the mud.
Motor oil is a vital part of your Ford Edge's engine. It provides the much needed lubrication to many of the internal parts of an engine. One of its key job is to prevent wear and tear on the moving parts and helps keep the engine running smoothly. Without oil, the engine would cease up almost immediately.
Regularly checking and changing your Ford Edge engine oil is really important. Every time you start and run your car, very fine by-products from the combustion in the engine will be collected in the engine oil. This is one of the reasons why over time the oil goes black. If these contaminants build up too much and exceed the capacity of the oil it can have a negative impact on your car’s overall efficiency and actually effect its performance as it creates sludge and increased wear in the engine block.
Every engine oil will have its viscosity grade labelled on the packaging. This will look something like 0W-20, 5W-30 or 5W-40. This grading is used to measure how thick / fluid the oil is and help ensure you buy the right oil for your car. The lower the viscosity grade of the oil, the more fluid and thinner it will be than those with a high grade (higher numbers) which will be much less running and thick.
So which engine oil should you buy for your Ford Edge? Whether you are topping up your Ford Edge oil or doing a full change of your Ford Edge's oil it is really important that you use the correct grade of oil.
