Performance

The 2019 Ford Edge SE, SEL and Titanium trims are powered by a 2.0-liter EcoBoost® inline 4-cylinder direct-injection twin-scroll engine paired with an 8-speed automatic transmission. This powertrain produces 245-hp and 275 lb-ft of torque and has an estimated EPA rating of 29 mpg of highway driving and 22 mpg in the city with front-wheel drive, or 28 mpg highway and 21 mpg city with the available all-wheel drive.

The new ST trim utilizes Ford Performance Tuned Suspension, race-inspired paddle shifters, and offers a sport mode option. The ST trim employs a 2.7-liter V6 turbocharged EcoBoost® engine coupled with a performance-tuned 8-speed automatic transmission and generates 335-hp and 380 lb-ft of torque.

Comfort and Technology

The Ford Edge delivers added comfort with the available leather-wrapped steering wheel, perforated leather-trimmed sport bucket seats, and 10-way power-adjustable front seats. You will have options when packing for a weekend getaway, with the 60/40 split-fold-flat and reclining second-row bench with cargo room up to 73.4 cu.-ft. and the available hands-free, foot-activated liftgate. The SYNC® 3 infotainment system with Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ compatibility, voice navigation, dual-headrest DVD entertainment system, and a Bang & Olufsen 12-speaker sound system are optional.

Safety

The 2019 Ford Edge offers more available driver-assist technology than any other midsize SUV. Ford’s Co-Pilot360™ comes standard and includes lane-keeping assist, a blind spot information system with cross traffic alert, pre-collision assist with automated emergency braking, and auto high-beam headlamps. Enhanced active park assist, adaptive cruise control with stop-and-go functionality, and a 180-degree camera system are all available.
