Ford Edge SUV facelifted

Fresh look, new engines and updated technology for Ford’s largest SUV

Ford has revealed its new Edge SUV – a facelifted version of the outgoing model with fresh styling, new engines and updated infotainment and safety equipment. The new SUV is set to arrive later this year, although an exact UK on-sale date hasn't been announced.

All versions get a bigger front grille, a redesigned bonnet, fresh front and rear styling treatments, plus standard LED head and tail-lights. The refreshed Edge will be offered in Trend, Titanium and top-spec Vignale trims, along with a new ST-Line specification – a sportier choice that adds unique styling details like 20 or 21-inch wheels, dual-exit exhausts and a sharp bodykit to the mix, plus sports suspension and variable-rate steering.

A version of Ford’s 2.0-litre EcoBlue diesel engine joins the Edge’s engine line-up, offering 235bhp, while 187 and 148bhp versions will also be offered. The 187bhp version is only available with a six-speed manual gearbox and four-wheel drive, while the 148bhp model gets Ford’s latest eight-speed automatic gearbox and front-wheel drive. The 235bhp engine gets that gearbox and four-wheel drive.

The Edge gets an updated interior with uprated materials throughout, a redesigned centre console, a new rotary dial for automatic models. Ford’s latest SYNC 3 infotainment system also features with full smartphone connectivity and an eight-inch screen, while customisable digital dials sit behind the steering wheel, allowing the driver to choose the layout of the speedometer, rev counter and other information.

Options include a 1000-watt Bang & Olufsen stereo, a wireless charging pad for smartphones, a panoramic glass roof, heated and cooled front seats, a heated steering wheel and even heated rear seats.

Active safety systems feature heavily on the Edge, including post-collision braking, evasive steering assistance and adaptive cruise control with stop-and-go and lane-centring assistance. The Edge’s other systems include (but are not limited to) adaptive headlights, blind-spot monitoring and traffic-sign recognition.
