Although the second generation of the Ford Edge has been quite recently released, we have been informed that this attractive crossover has been planned to hit the market soon as a redesigned 2019 Ford Edge model. The new Edge is going to offer some significant upgrades in terms of exterior and interior design as well as a new engine option.
The 2019 Ford Edge is going to appear with significantly bigger dimensions than the other two-row crossovers from its class. It has been said that this model will use the platform seen on the Lincoln MKX model. It will be available in several trims and perhaps some new body color options. The new Edge will definitely be more luxurious, attractive and refreshed than its predecessor. Most of the updates will probably happen around the front fascia where the new Edge and especially its hood will get a more aggressive design. This model might get a redesigned grille and you will also notice that the headlights have been reshaped and more angular. The headlights as well as sportier taillights will be using the latest LED technology. The new Edge will be standing on standard 18-inch wheels which could go up to 20-inch, depending on the trim.
The interior of the 2019 Ford Edge will reveal a modern and more luxurious cabin. It will offer a two-row seating configuration and we probably should not expect an optional third row in this model. The seats will be comfortable and covered in leather with the front seats being power-adjustable, heated and cooled, at least in higher trims. The driver will get a new SYNC 3 infotainment system instead of the older My Ford Touch. It will provide options such as satellite radio, audio system, dual-zone automatic climate control, Bluetooth, Apple Car Play and Android Auto. The new Edge will also include numerous safety systems and driver assist features such as adaptive cruise control, airbags, a rearview camera, self-parking function and lane-keep assist.
One of the options that the 2019 Ford Edge will be offering under its hood is a 2.0-liter turbo four-cylinder engine that delivers 245 horsepower, used on 2019 Ford Escape too. The other includes a 3.5-liter V6 which produces 280 horsepower. It will be mated to a six-speed automatic transmission and get an all-wheel drive system. The final option, found in the Sport trim, will come with a 2.7-liter twin-turbo V6 and 315 horsepower.
2019 Ford Edge Release Date and Price
The 2019 Ford Edge should be expected in the market sometime in 2018, but its release date has not been confirmed yet. The estimated price range is $29,000 – $41,000, depending on the trim and equipment package you choose.
