Tech Spec: 2019 Ford Edge

Order Reprints

This month’s tech spec features the 2019 Ford Edge. This edition will focus on the model’s three mainstream trims and not the performance-tuned ST. Here’s how the company describes the SUV:

Edge offers SE, SEL and Titanium trim levels – all wearing sportier new front and rear fascia, grille, hood and liftgate. Edge features a new 8-speed automatic transmission and Auto Start-Stop is standard across the range.

The new Edge comes standard with a 2.0-liter EcoBoost engine that offers a five-horsepower increase and improved fuel economy over the outgoing model.

It is mated to a newly designed 8-speed transmission with Auto Start-Stop technology that efficiently turns the engine off when the vehicle is stopped and idling, then seamlessly restarts in milliseconds when the brake is released.

Inside, a redesigned center console is accentuated by an all-new rotary gearshift dial that frees up space, allows easier access to the wireless charging pad and enhances the vehicle’s modern, sophisticated feel.

With a wider grille and freshened fascia that create an athletic, modern appearance, the new Edge maintains the reputation for sophistication it’s carried for more than a decade. Full LED headlamps are standard, LED fog lamps and signature lighting are available and a redesigned hood imparts a wider, more planted stance.
