2019 Ford Edge aims to put Ford on the list of the manufacturers that make most attractive and modern small SUVs. As we were able to see, new Edge is much improved from the last model, but most of the changes came in the design of the car, with improvements in engine strength and cabin equipment. However, many of things are still not known, as we must be patient and see how final version of the car will look like.
The auto magazine “Digital trends” called 2019 Ford Edge “Ford Taurus” with bad allergic reaction. That could be our conclusion, too, after we saw so many bulges and lumps on the chassis. The front end is curved the most. With wide trapezoidal mesh grille and dents that protect air vents on the bottom, it looks even more aggressive and muscle. The rear end is also curved following rounded shape with thin rear lights on the convex bumper. Even though the shape does not shows that this crossover has ST badge, which makes it the strongest crossover on the market.
The manufacturer was quite mysterious about the cabin equipment in 2019 Ford Edge, even though last year model had great technology open for improvement and changes. We are sure that there could be found things like lane-centering assist, post-collision braking system, adaptive cruise control with stop-and-go function, Ford’s SYNC App Link with Amazon Alexa app, and Wi-Fi connection that supports 10 devices at same time. We are sure that chubby truck like Edge has a wide and comfortable cabin that supports taller passengers though.
When it comes to the engine, 2019 Ford Edge has stronger and better performed 2.7-liter V6 than last year model and Sports version of Edge. When we said better, we meant 335 horsepower and 380 pound-feet of torque, which is slightly better than before. However, it gets the same transmission, an eight-speed automatic one and all-wheel driving system as well. Thanks to many additions, like model-specific suspension tuning and optional brake package, Edge is much better driven and has more stability at higher speed. The base model gets simple 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbocharged petrol unit with 250 horsepower.
