The 2019 Ford Edge is an upcoming midsize-crossover SUV that will be offered with two row of seats. The first model is presented in 2006 as a 2007 model, and from that period the Ford Edge became an important player in Ford’ s midsize crossover SUV segment.
The new model will get few modifications. It will now offer three engine variants, front-wheel drive or optional all-wheel-drive system. This model comes with four trims SE, SEL, ST, and Titanium.
Ford is claiming the 2019 Edge comes with more standard driver assist features than any of its competition.
Basically, the 2019 Edge comes with all the latest (almost autonomous) driver aids without having to order an expensive option package. Here’s how the 2019 Ford Edge shapes up.
2019 Ford Edge Engine Options
You can choose a base model that comes with a lot of techs and is powered by a 2.0-liter turbocharged inline-4 engine that is available in SE, SEL and Titanium trim. When it comes to EPA city/highway fuel economy, the model will provide 20/30 mpg (FWD), 21/30 mpg (FWD included start/stop system) and 20/28 mpg with the AWD.
The second one comes with SEL and Titanium trims. This one will have 3.5-liter V6 that makes 280 horsepower. The fuel economy is 18/26 mpg (FWD), 17/25 mpg (AWD).
It will come only in ST trim. The EPA rating for this one model is 17/24 mpg. The towing capacity of this model is rated at 2,000 pounds.
2019 Ford Edge Titanium Elite Package
The company will add new Titanium Elite Package trim in this upcoming model. The Titanium Elite model will be shown for the first time at the Chicago auto show this week.
The popular Platinum edition is not offered in this year model and the Titanium Elite model sits beneath the ST edition that is also a replacement for the Sports model. The new Titanium Elite package will bring outstanding 20-inch wheels, lower cladding, premium rear skid plate and a full body color sides. We also expect much more in the final version.
What Makes The Ford Edge Titanium Elite Special?
- Unique 20-Inch Wheels
- Body-Colored Trim
- Upgraded Rear Bumper Skid Plate
- Standard Features From Titanium Model
- EcoBoost Four-Cylinder Engine
- 250 Horsepower
- 275 Pound-Feet Of Torque
Ford has yet to release the full details on this model, but we can see that the “Elite” badge adds a new set of 20-inch wheels. Unique to this model, they feature a twin five-spoke design and a two-tone finish.
No word on interior upgrades yet, but the Titanium Elite should get everything you can find in the regular Titanium model. Expect standard features like dual-zone climate control, a particulate air filter, leather-wrapped steering wheel with cruise control, auto-dimming rearview mirror, power windows, garage door opener, carpeted floor mats, and a cargo management system. It comes with SYNC 3 infotainment, two 4.2-inch displays in the instrument cluster, and a 12-speaker audio system from Sony.
The EcoBoost engine delivers 250 horsepower and 275 pound-feet of torque
The Titanium Elite will use the 2019 Edge’s updated powertrain, which includes the 2.0-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder and new eight-speed automatic transmission. The EcoBoost received a five-horsepower gain, so now it delivers 250 horsepower and 275 pound-feet of torque. Front-wheel drive is standard, and AWD remains an option.
Ford has yet to announce pricing, but with the 2018 Sport, which the ST replaces, starting at $41,670, and the Titanium priced from $36,925, the Titanium Elite is likely to retail from around $38,000.
2019 Ford Edge Aggressive and Stylish Look
The 2019 Ford Edge model is mentioned for familiar people, it can accumulate five passengers. The platform on which it is built is called the Ford CD4, and this can be seen also in the Lincoln MKX model.
The bumper is also slightly changed and now is bigger and more robust than before. The whole look gets a note of aggressiveness, the goal was also to raise the level of luxury. This is achieved by interior solutions.
There was a lot of talk about the extra technology that would be found in the Edge and make it even more practical and interesting. The model for the 2019 year will come with four trims SE, SEL, ST and the new Titanium Elite package.
