The Ford Edge facelift crossover has received an updated radiator grille, optic blocks and modified stoplights, a new hood and bumpers. In the cabin, the minor console and central tunnel architecture have changed, with the traditional gearbox lever removed.
There are also safety improvements. Ford expanded the list of protection systems and assistance based collision warning, monitoring blind spots, assistance in changing lanes and more.
The basic version of the Ford Edge facelift will be fitted with a 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbocharged engine that now produces 253 hp (+5 hp). The gearbox to which it is coupled is a new, eight-speed automatic, which Ford says will deliver greater fuel economy.
To prepare a sporting ST version, specialists from the Ford Performance Division were attracted.
A Ford Edge ST will be powered by a 2.7-liter V6 turbocharger capable of 340 hp and 515 Nm of torque. The gearbox is an automatic eight-speed gearbox and the traction system is 4×4.
On the outside, a facelift Edge ST differs from an ordinary crossover through an aggressive aerodynamic exterior kit, numerous black inserts, a different radiator grille, a rear bumper with two exhaust tailpipes and more efficient braking mechanisms. The exclusive interior decorative materials are used and the seats have a sporty profile.
Details on the price list and equipment levels available for the Ford Edge facelift will most likely be made public during the Detroit presentation.
