After the recent update, we are pretty sure that the 2020 Ford Edge will carry on without more important changes. The popular mid-size crossover has been around for years. The current model represents the second generation, which is in production for almost five years. The recent update was pretty major. It has brought a lot of novelties, starting from a significantly improved styling, new transmission and a new performance trim called the ST.
Considering that this facelift was pretty intense, we definitely won’t see anything important to be changed before a complete redesign, which definitely won’t happen in the next couple of years. The 2020 Ford Edge will continue with a familiar styling and overall characteristics. The best we can get from a next-year model could be a couple of new color options and more standard equipment. Therefore, we don’t expect to see its arrival before the last quarter of the year.
2020 Ford Edge Redesign
In terms of base design characteristics, the 2020 Ford Edge definitely won’t change. We are about to see a familiar layout, which is based on a familiar CD4 platform, which is typical for all mid-size cars from the manufacturer. As we already mentioned, the recent update has brought a lot of new styling details. Compared to the pre-facelifted version, the new model looks significantly more attractive. It came with new headlights, grille, bumpers and much more. It took a lot of inspiration from the bigger Explorer and practically feature the company’s latest design philosophy.
Given all the changes, there is no doubt that the 2020 Ford Edge will continue in the same way. It will feature the same styling and the best we can get is a couple of new colors in the offer. Other than that, things will remain identical.
2020 Ford Edge Interior
The interior of the 2020 Ford Edge will also continue in the same way. The recent update didn’t affect the crossovers cabin as it was the case with the exterior design but there was a fine number of changes. Most of them were in terms of new technologies, such as new safety systems. On the other side, the overall cabin layout has remained the same. The overall quality is on a high level, though some rivals look more upscale. This especially refers to the infotainment system, which features pretty outdated graphics.
On the other side, the cabin is very comfortable. Although a mid-size crossover, it features just two rows of seats, which isn’t so common thing these days. The obvious benefit is very generous legroom, as well as lots of cargo space behind the third row. Also, the visibility in all directions is pretty good.
2020 Ford Edge Trim Levels
The 2020 Ford Edge will continue with the same trim level organization. That would mean four familiar versions in the offer – SE, SEL, Titanium, and ST.
The base SE comes with standard features such as 18-inch wheels, automatic headlights, 4.2-inch screen, a rearview camera, Bluetooth, voice controls, Wi-Fi hotspot etc. There is also a fine number of safety features. Some of the notable ones are blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert, lane keeping assists, and forward collision warning with automatic braking etc.
Of course, the SEL comes with more standard equipment. Some of the notable upgrades are things like -inch touchscreen display, Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto, additional USB ports, power-adjustable front seats etc.
The Titanium is the best-equipped version of this crossover. It comes with standard features like 19-inch wheels, a hands-free liftgate, noise-reducing front windows, leather upholstery, upgraded interior trim, ambient interior lighting, front sports seats, driver-seat memory settings, HD radio, 12-speaker audio system, wireless charging and much more.
Finally, there is a hi-performance ST version, which besides more powerful engine comes with things like sport-tuned suspension, unique front and rear styling, variable-ratio steering and more.
2020 Ford Edge Engine
The 2020 Ford Edge will continue with same engines in the offer. All models except the performance ST version will feature a familiar 2.0-liter four-cylinder unit. It is good for about 250 horsepower and 280 pound-feet of torque. Besides a lot of power, it also delivers a pretty amazing fuel economy. It goes around 22 mpg in the city and 29 mpg on the highway.
On the other side, the ST comes with a 2.7-liter V6 with twin turbochargers and a max output of around 335 horsepower and 380 pound-feet of torque. This engine returns around 19 mpg in the city and 26 mpg on the highway, which is also quite respectable numbers.
2020 Ford Edge Release Date and Price
The 2020 Ford Edge will hit the market sometime late in the year. We don’t expect bigger changes in terms of price. So, base models should go around 30.000 dollars. On the other side, top-range models could go all away up to 43.000 dollars.
