We waited for 2021 Ford Edge for almost a year from the prototype that the manufacturer has shown. However, the changes that this model brings fans and buyers have waited for more than five years. The last redesigned version happened 2014, with the optional hybrid version in 2015. Of course, we cannot forget the small mid-cycle update in 2017. After that nothing much happen in design and engine of this model. Luckily, there are impressive changes that are worthy of mentioning.
- The model is modernized and upgraded in design.
- There are plenty of engines under the hood.
- There are no significant changes in the shape of the car.
- The cabin is not much upgraded as we expected.
Although not much changed in design, 2021 Ford Edge includes few upgrades in design, so the model is more elegant and sophisticated than before. It is something that the manufacturer thinks of, since Ford Explorer also gets the new design, with soft edges and a little prettier front end. The model should be slightly larger, being made on the new platform. When it comes to the details, most of them are there only for attractiveness, while the manufacturer has not given much attention to the aerodynamic and functionality.
Like on the outside, the inside of 2021 Ford Edge became more comfortable, elegant and luxury than before. The manufacturer has used great soft materials, modern colors and prettier design. In term of technology, most of them are already used devices with new Sync 3 infotainment system and great safety program.
2021 Ford Edge Engine
It seems that the current 3.5-liter V6 engine goes to the history and 2021 Ford Edge starts the selling season with smaller but more functional models. It should have 2.3-liter EcoBoost engine with 310 horsepower and 320 pound-feet of torque. On the other hand, you can choose 2.0-liter EcoBoost with 245 horsepower and 275 pound-feet of torque or 2.7-liter EcoBoost with 315 horsepower and 350 pound-feet of torque.
Another sources, on the contrary, claim that we should be prepared for the 2.1-liter four-inline model and its 250 horsepower, or 2.6 V6 EcoBoost model with 335 horsepower that ST version should have. Whatever happens, engines should be matched with 8-speed automatic transmission. With 3,500 pounds that Edge could pull, it becomes stronger than Honda Pilot.
2021 Ford Edge Release Date and Price
Not only that 2021 Ford Edge is redesigned in design, but it is also changed in engine and cabin equipment. The best are announcements for the models that will come in the future which should make this model closer to the best SUVs in the class. The price should be similar to the current model, meaning $29,000 for the base model that could go up to $40,000.
