Versatile performance, a sophisticated cabin and protective features are three of the 2019 Ford Edge model’s top strengths.
Customized powertrain options
The 2019 Edge can emphasize efficiency or energy, depending on personal preference. The model attains up to 22 mpg in the city and 29 mpg on the highway when equipped with front-wheel drive.* Upgrade to the 2.7-liter V6 EcoBoost® engine for a bit more potency; this version generates 335 horsepower and 380 lb-ft of torque to suit drivers who prefer a more thrilling ride. The Class II Trailer Tow Package comes standard on the ST trim, and is available on the SEL and Titanium versions. This option equips the Edge with 3,500-pound maximum towing capacity, to accommodate a trailer or camper.
Spacious, comfortable cabin with an abundance of tech
A trunk space of 39.2 cubic feet expands to 73.4 cubic feet with the rear seats folded flat. Ford SYNC®, four 12-volt powerpoints and SiriusXM® Radio come standard on the base trim. The Titanium and ST trims include the B&O™ Premium Sound System by Bang & Olufsen, to elevate the music-listening experience. Select the Titanium trim or higher to enjoy heated and cooled front seats; available heated back seats will help keep second-row passengers cozy on chilly days. The top-of-the-line ST trim offers leather-trimmed seating with Miko inserts to appease even the most refined of tastes.
Advanced safety features
The 2019 Edge delivers a variety of defenses to help shield passengers from harm. BLIS® with Cross-Traffic Alert and Lane-Keeping System come standard on all trim levels, to help the driver stay alert and avoid an impact. Available Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop-and-Go helps slow and speed the vehicle to match the flow of traffic. Available Evasive Steering Assist technology detects a stopped or slow-moving vehicle up ahead, taking control of the steering wheel when necessary, to eliminate a collision.
If you’re in the market for a midsize SUV that goes beyond the basics, the 2019 Edge should suit.
