That means the modern crossover is aiming younger population as their customers.
2019 Ford Edge styling
There won’t be big changes on the 2019 Ford Edge. New generation is coming after 2020, and then fans will get a bigger redesign. Until then, Ford is making cosmetic changes and tech updates. Outside, part of that are headlights and rear end. Few changes in lines will make this vehicle more aerodynamic, but the overall appearance is the same. Even grille won’t suffer big redesign. On the other hand, in the cabin, Sync3 infotainment system gets new touch-screen display. Speakers will boost audio, as well as satellite radio and CD player. Air conditioning and dual-zone climate control will make the ride more comfortable.
2019 Ford Edge drivetrain
The energy source for mid-size crossover is a 3.5-l V-6 unit. This drivetrain is going to upgrade to the current 2.7-l engine. The Same unit is under the hood of F-150 truck, so it seems that company is trying to experiment something. Complete renewal of engine lineup will come with a new generation. Until then, Ford will also offer 2.0-l EcoBoost engine for entry-level trims. Front-wheel drive comes with all Edge crossovers. However, the company will again offer Intelligent all-wheel drive for better traction and stability. But, this model will reduce mpg rating, which should be around 26 mpg.
2019 Ford Edge pricing and competition
The cost of the 2019 Ford Edge will start from $29,000. That is entry-level SE trim. Other crossovers in the lineup will probably remain the same, which means we will see again SEL, Titanium and Sport SUV. The last one is coming with most features, and the highest price, above $40,000. As it steps into the market, new Edge will fight Chrysler SUV and Jeep Cherokee for a bigger share of buyers.
