The recent update has brought lots of significant changes, so no one expects to see any bigger novelty on the 2020 Ford Edge. The current generation of this mid-size crossover is on the road since 2014. Recently, we have seen a facelift that brings changes in many aspects. There is a new styling, new interior features, as well as changes under the hood. All this clearly indicates no bigger modifications until complete redesign, which shouldn’t happen in next few years.

As we already mentioned, the 2020 Ford Edge shouldn’t come with bigger changes,due to a recent facelift. For this occasion, we have seen lots of exterior rework. First of all, the new Edge adopts the company’s new design language, highlighted by a new front end, which drops the old three-bar grille and gets a new pair of headlights. Of course, there are changes to the front bumper, which gets a new shape, new air intakes, fog lights etc. The rear end also comes with a nice amount of changes. The first thing you’ll notice are new taillights, as well as a tweaked tailgate. The rear bumper has been reshaped as well, while the exhaust pipe is completely new. On the other side, mechanics remain the same and probably won’t suffer until a redesign, which should happen in two or three years.
On the other side, the interior design didn’t received so many changes. Of course, there are new color schemes, but the core remains unchanged. This means that we can count on a familiar cabin layout. Unlike most crossovers in the class, the Edge sticks to two rows of seating. Therefore, you can count on lots of legroom and plenty of comfort. The biggest novelty for this update is a new trim level called the ST. It replaces the sport model and comes with lots of distinctive details, as well as with anew, more powerful engine.
2020 Ford Edge Engines
The powertrain lineup is about to carry on in the same way. Base models will continue with a familiar 2.0-liter EcoBoost, which seems like a perfect measure for this crossover. It delivers pretty nice amount of power, around 245 hp and 275 lb-ft of torque. It also offers very good fuel economy, which goes around 20 mpg in the city and 27 mpg on the highway. For the new ST trim, the company tuned up the 2.7-liter unit, which now features 30 hp more compared to the version that powered the Sport trim. This one is good for 335 horsepower.
2020 Ford Edge Release Date and Price
As you can see, there is no room for bigger changes at the moment, So, the 2020 Ford Edge should come late in the next year. Don’t expect changes in price either. Base models will go around $29,000.
