The new angular styling, inspired by the smaller New Ecosport, utilises a more aggressive headlight design, with LED lights as standard and a new ovular grille at the front.
More technology has been added to update the current model with some futuristic safety features including Ford’s new Evasive Steering Assist, which mitigates crashes by helping the car steer around obstacles.
Adaptive cruise control now comes with lane centring and post-collision braking are now available in the range - the first time these have been offered in Europe.
SYNC 3 combines with an 8" touchscreen to deliver connectivity on the go with wireless phone charging and B&O PLAY audio pumped out through 1000 watts of speakers.
The New Ford Edge debuts with the 238PS EcoBlue engine with the added Bi-Turbo 2.0L diesel, specifically designed for greater low-end torque and a linear acceleration performance for a smooth driving experience.
Combined with the Intelligent All Wheel Drive system and an 8 speed automatic gearbox, there are a plethora of options for comfort and performance, whether you are roaming the city streets or going on your off-road expedition.
Pushing style and performance that little bit further, you don't need to cross the sea to grab the EDGE ST exclusive to the US. Instead you can upgrade your drive with Ford's ST-Line model, designed with a sporty image and Ford Performance parts, including sports-tuned suspension with tighter steering response, easily manoeuvre-ability and flappy paddle shifting through the optimised 8 speed quick-shift gearbox.
The new Edge ST-Line features bold and dynamic exterior and interior styling that includes:
Sports-tuned suspension further enhances the new Edge ST-Line driving experience, supported by Ford Adaptive Steering technology, which optimises the steering response and makes the new Edge easier to manoeuvre by continually changing the steering ratio according to vehicle speed, and wheel-mounted shift paddles for the eight-speed quick shift automatic transmission.
The eight-speed automatic transmission has been engineered to further optimise fuel-efficiency and deliver responsive performance and smooth, swift gearshifts. Tuned to meet European driving expectations, the transmission features:
Catapulting us into the future the wireless charging pad nestled in the new Ford Edge forward media console now enables cable-free charging of compatible devices, and Ford’s SYNC 3 communications and entertainment system – compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto™ at no cost– allows you to control connected smartphones, audio, navigation and climate using voice commands.
And if you enjoy your music, you need to experience it with B&O PLAY, a sound system specially tuned for the Edge using a 10-channel Digital Sound Processor to control and equalise each speaker, ensuring an even sound distribution throughout the cabin. A surround sound option delivers an even more enveloping audio experience.
The new Edge also offers a new fully configurable 3D digital instrument cluster that give you full personalisation of the layout of the speedometer, rev-counter and vehicle information displays – and even adjust between one of seven colours. Further available comfort and convenience technologies include a full length panoramic glass roof, heated and cooled front seats, heated rear seats and a heated steering wheel.
With harmonious, high quality materials and cutting-edge design, the spacious new Edge interior exudes a premium feel. A redesigned centre console features a new rotary gearshift dial for the eight-speed automatic transmission that frees up space and allows easier access to the wireless charging pad, while enhancing the vehicle’s modern, sophisticated feel.
An electronic parking brake button in place of a conventional parking brake lever also helps maximise space and houses adjustable cup holders and a deep storage box with enough space for books, toys and tablets. An even larger swing-bin glovebox sits under the dashboard, and further stowage is available in the instrument panel top.
This is the EDGE for you, your family, your children and your next adventure. Find a place to put everything you need, relax in comfort and reach your next destination in style.
