The new generation of the Edge crossover from Ford is relatively new. So, bigger changes are not so likely in foreseeable future. However, the 2019 Ford Edge could bring a mid-cycle refreshment. Plans are there, but we still don’t know what is US carmaker up to. Spy shots are not unveiling too much. Also, it is still early to talk about the final product. From these photos we can conclude only one thing – the Edge is coming for sure with some modifications.
Although heavy cover hides most of the vehicle, fans shouldn’t expect too many changes. Ford is going to refresh 2019 Edge for sure, but it is more likely that cosmetic changes are being prepared, rather than huge redesign. Under the hood will probably be the same unit. We say probably because there are rumors about the new option. Also, we can’t exclude a hybrid variant from any modern SUV.
2019 Ford Edge Lineup and Equipment
Once again, the SE model will have the base equipment and features. Of course, it will be the least expensive vehicle in the lineup. It comes with standard rear-view camera and pressure monitor for each tire. Halogen lamps, 18-inch wheels, and black mirror caps are standard outside. Slightly more equipped is SEL trim.
Ford Edge Titanium and Sport
The most attention draws two models. The 2019 Ford Edge Titanium includes Sync3 infotainment system as part of its equipment. Roll stability and curve control systems will be very helpful for a driver. These also improve the safety of passengers. Also, Titanium model has larger, 19-inch wheels. Top of the lineup vehicle is Ford Edge Sport. Even bigger rims are the highlight of the exterior styling, while inside, overall comfort gets a boost from an ambient lighting.
2019 Ford Edge New Drivetrains, Hybrid
Two engines are standard for 2019 Ford Edge. Entry-level models will come again with 2.0-l I-4 power unit, with the fuel economy of 30 mpg for a highway drive. This is a version for SE, SEL, and Titanium crossovers. A 6-speed transmission is standard for the entire lineup, including the 2019 Edge Sport. But, the top model uses a different powertrain. For an upcoming season, there are few possibilities. At first place, there is an old 2.7-l EcoBoost V-6 drivetrain. Further, we can see it with 3.5-l V-6, or even the new naturally-aspirated 3.3-l V-6.
The current lineup of the hybrid vehicles in Ford family doesn’t include a crossover. Likely that 2019 Ford Edge is going to be the first ever SUV as the plug-in is pretty high. We doubt American carmaker would leave it to any other model in the segment.
How much does 2019 Ford Edge cost and what is Ford Edge?
The price for an entry-level crossover will be around $30,000. This is on par with other vehicles in the segment. The 2019 Ford Edge belongs to a mid-size SUV range, and it will compete with Honda Pilot and Mazda CX-9 in the new season.
Which Is Bigger Ford Edge Or Escape?
The 2019 Ford Edge is a mid-size SUV, while Escape belongs to a compact segment. So, it is obvious that Edge is a big brother to Escape. It is also the most popular crossover produced by Ford, and it is usually matrix for other vehicles. One of these is Escape, and it is clear why.
