A More Exciting Ford Edge for 2019

The Ford lineup has many SUV choices for you. No matter if you are looking to only have the average 2.5 kids or if you are looking to have more than that, there is sure to be a Ford SUV that will suit your needs.

The Ford Edge sits neatly between the Escape and Explorer in terms of size, having room for up to five passengers and an array of the most exciting features to keep them safe and entertained. This size puts the 2019 Ford Edge in a difficult class to stand out in, but it has fought its way to the spotlight.

The various generations of the Ford Edge have been in production for over a decade, giving drivers a dependable vehicle that has a sportier design than many competitors. This identity has really come across in the 2019 Ford Edge with updated trims and exciting performance.

The trim levels of the 2019 Ford Edge include the Ford Edge SE, SEL, Titanium, and ST.

A New Look for the 2019 Model Year

There are updates all around the 2019 Ford Edge. While the 2018 Ford Edge Sport trim is no more, it has been replaced with an equally as sporty ST trim, but even without choosing the ST, there are new bumpers, grille design, wheel designs, and updating lighting components. All these changes were made to help the new Ford Edge stand out from the crowd with a more athletic body shape. Every line on the body guides air around it to improve aerodynamics for the most exciting performance possible.

An Exciting Performance You'd Enjoy

There are two engine options for the 2019 Ford Edge, making sure you will be able to enjoy the time behind your wheel. The base engine is a 2.0-liter EcoBoost® that gives you up to 250 horsepower and 280 pound-feet of torque. Without even upgrading to the sportier trim you are getting an engine that has more than enough power to propel a fully-loaded SUV without hesitation. Every Ford Edge now comes with an eight-speed automatic transmission for a smoother performance than the outgoing six-speed automatic.

While the base engine is incredibly exciting, you can upgrade to the 2.7-liter EcoBoost® V6 twin-turbocharged engine that makes up to 335 horsepower and 380 pound-feet of torque with Intelligent All-Wheel Drive coming standard. This upgrade comes in the 2019 Ford Edge ST trim, noting it as one of the most dependable and powerful vehicles on the market.

While coming standard with front-wheel drive, many of you will appreciate having better traction with the Intelligent All-Wheel Drive system. This AWD system monitors road conditions every second to send the power to the wheels to prevent slipping but is front-wheel favoring to improve efficiency. Even if the weather is holding up well, the AWD system will continue to hold the best grip around corners and for loose terrain that you might come across.

A Comfortable and Upscale Interior

The 2019 Ford Edge is ready for any road ahead, whether that be a morning commute or family adventure. The sporty body doesn't mean you are at a loss for space, having a maximum of 73.4 cubic feet of cargo space and up to 39.2 cubic feet behind the rear row of seats. Your passengers will have up to 113.9 cubic feet of passenger space, making sure you'll be able to have everything you are looking for. All this space leaves you with plenty of legroom, headroom, and hip space to ensure every passenger is sitting comfortably in your SUV.

While the standard interior offers cloth upholstery, it comes with an upscale and minimalistic design. Many other SUVs feel the need to include a variety of different designs and patterns to be stylish, but the Ford Edge is here to dismiss that notion. Of course, you can upgrade to leather seats, 10-way power-adjustable front seats, heated and ventilated seats, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel.

Advanced Technology Throughout the Interior

Comfort comes from more than just seating, it comes from all the cabin features. The standard 4.2-inch on the SYNC system is good with FordPass Connect and a Wi-Fi hotspot, putting it a short distance ahead of the competition, but upgrading to the more advanced system brings you more functionality and access. The available SYNC® 3 system comes with everything that you might need through an eight-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ integration with Amazon Alexa connectivity. This intuitive system is responsive even though the physical controls for the available dual-zone climate control system may seem on the small side.

There are a slew of USB ports throughout the cabin to keep all of the most essential devices charged and usable, even with an available wireless charging pad to minimize the number of wires that you will need. You can even upgrade the audio system to a more premium 12-speaker Bang & Olufsen one that puts you in the center of your own personal concert.

Standard and Available Safety Features

Safety is a paramount concern for Ford models, making sure you will be able to feel confident whenever you get behind the wheel. No matter if you are stuck in the middle of rush hour or if the highway is empty for your road trip, you will always be aware of your surroundings.The 2019 Ford Edge comes standard with an all-new safety system: Ford Co-Pilot360™. There are many features that other SUVs in this class won't offer without paying more for a package, including blind spot monitoring with rear cross traffic alert, lane keep assist, a rearview camera, pre-collision system with automatic emergency braking, and automatic high beams.

Just because there are many different standard features doesn't mean there aren't any to add. You can include features like Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop-and-Go and Lane Centering, Evasive Steering Assist, and Enhanced Active Park Assist System.

Is This the Model for You?

With how many SUVs of this size that there are, you might have several that you are interested in, but what sets the 2019 Ford Edge apart from them?

A sportier look, driving experience, and overall feel of the new Ford Edge makes it a top competitor in the class. Once you get on a test drive you will have to take a long time considering why you were thinking about choosing anything else. Advanced features will entice you, but an exciting performance and vast array of standard features will keep you drawn in. All you need to do is get behind the wheel to understand what makes the 2019 Ford Edge the model that you want to see in your driveway.
