Tech Spec: 2019 Ford Edge

Dec. 1, 2019

This month's tech spec features the 2019 Ford Edge.

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.
