So I received the January 2016 issue of Motortrend and started reading the specs on the Edge Sport they tested.
1/4 mile: 14.3 @ 96 mph
- Generally quiet interior
- Liked folding / reclining / one-touch folding rear seats
- Sync was a bit slow
- Ton of interior rattles to match (lol)
But what caught my eye is the Lincoln MKX
335 hp and 380 lbs torque
1/4 mile: 14.7 @ 94 mph
Which begs the question, why so much slower? MT advised it was due to 200 plus (224 lbs) pound weight penalty was why it was so much slower.... interesting, the .4 would maybe be 400 lbs difference, but I think there is more to it..maybe trans gearing?
PS - Volvo XC90 won the SUV of the year. Styling is OK, but meh...
