In company’s crossover lineup, 2017 Ford Edge will definitely be one of the most interesting models. History of this model starts in 2006. Original model was produced until last year, when we saw a complete redesign. New model came with plenty of novelties and new thing is also that Edge is now available in Europe too. It stands above popular model called Kuga. This variant is a little bit different, especially when it is about engines. Since this will be a third year of productions, bigger changes are not expected yet, because it is too early for so-called mid-cycle refresh.
2017 Ford Edge redesign
The 2017 Ford Edge will feature all design solutions that were introduced with 2015 year model. This model is still pretty fresh so, bigger changes are not expected. It will ride on the same CD4 platform, which is used for several other models of the company, but will be most related to Lincoln MKX, especially in mechanical aspect. When it is about visual appearance, 2017 Edge will be completely adapted to company’s current design language. Most similarities will be found with models like Taurus and Explorer. It features same grille and headlights, and also LED taillights. For now, modifications in this aspect are not expected.
