First introduced in 2007, the Ford Edge is a crossover SUV that offers a mid-size option for great interior space and luxury along with excellent performance and power. The 2019 Ford Edge has received a nice facelift and includes a new model option, the ST, which provides even greater power than was ever available before. This is an SUV for everyone, whether you're looking to try out a larger vehicle for the first time or just want to upgrade from your existing ride.
That's one of the major reasons we are so excited about the 2019 Ford Edge and why we get fired up about introducing people to it for the first time. With some vehicles, it's necessary to gauge everything a customer is looking for before even starting to think about what might be the right fit for them. With the design, options, and safety features of the Ford Edge, however, it is much easier for us to start talking about it and watch a customer's eyes light up as they realize they've discovered a great option they had not even considered.
If you want the absolute biggest ride, or the smallest, or need a ton of power, then the Ford Edge might not be the right choice for you. But we find time and again that people who don't even realize they are looking for the 2019 Ford Edge end up seeing it as the perfect choice. That's what makes this such a fun vehicle to talk about and drive - it has something for pretty much everyone, and brings a lot of great features together in a beautiful package.
Although there are a few different models available for the 2019 Ford Edge, even starting with the baseline SE model, you find excellent power and performance. This beauty includes a 2.0L EcoBoost engine and gets 20/29 MPG driving in the city or highway, which is absolutely fantastic fuel economy for any SUV on the market. It has an 8-speed automatic transmission and front-wheel drive, plus you get almost 40 cu.ft. of interior cargo room behind the second row of the vehicle.
If performance is really important to you, however, then you should take a close look at the all-new 2019 Ford Edge ST model, which is the first SUV designed and developed by the Ford Performance Team. While the baseline Edge is terrific, the ST simply takes driving a mid-size SUV to another level entirely. This is thanks to a 2.7L V6 turbocharged EcoBoost engine that provides 335 horsepower and 380 lb-ft of torque for truly exceptional power and performance.
The 2019 Ford Edge ST also includes a range of additional features and benefits that ensure you feel surrounded by luxury every moment as you push your new vehicle to the limits. This is a great choice for driving around town thanks to an array of driver-assist features, or going on long trips with friends or family. No matter where you are planning to go, the 2019 Ford Edge is one of the best ways you can choose to get there.
From the very first moment you sit inside the 2019 Ford Edge, you can't help but notice all of the attention to detail shown by its designers and manufacturer. Whether you are sitting in the driver's seat, or lucky enough to be along for the ride, the Edge is all about comfort, luxury, and great features that make it a pleasure to drive. It starts with available leather-trimmed seats that keep you comfortable and provide a smooth, soothing ride for everyone inside the Ford Edge.
The steering wheel has a number of features that make it immediately clear it was designed by drivers for drivers. This includes different buttons and controls that let you make adjustments to your environment without releasing your hands from the wheel, which reduces distractions and can help prevent collisions. The steering wheel of the 2019 Ford Edge ST includes steering-wheel-mounted paddle shifters that let you switch gears manually without taking your hands off the wheel - a design inspired by and taken from professional race cars.
Ambient lighting at the foot of the front seats creates a unique and truly immersive driving experience that reminds you that you are part of the road, but also separate from it. There is also a Bang & Olufsen premium sound system that features 12 powerful speakers throughout the vehicle. This is perfect for anyone who enjoys listening to music while driving (and who doesn't?) since it perfectly disperses sound throughout the inside of the vehicle and immerses you in a totally unique auditory experience.
We expect great technology in a 2019 model year vehicle, and the features included in the 2019 Ford Edge never hesitate to impress us. It all centers on the voice-activated touchscreen navigation system that includes traffic updates and navigational functionality. This is part of the available Ford Co-Pilot360 Assist+ program that can come with the Edge, which utilizes a number of technologically advanced safety features to keep you and everyone you care about safe while inside the vehicle.
One of the most impressive features found in the 2019 Ford Edge is the available SYNC 3 with Ford+Alexa, which functions with the numerous capabilities of Amazon Alexa. If you have an Amazon account and already use Alexa for all sorts of functions, then this level of interoperability is hard to beat since it lets you more easily synchronize your work life, home time, and time spent on the road. Not only does this give you access to excellent voice navigation and traffic information, but it also includes Amazon Prime shopping features.
Find yourself stuck in traffic and suddenly remember you needed to order a product for work? Simply use this feature to place your order while you wait on traffic to clear. You can even use this to connect with and control Smart Home devices through Alexa while on your way home or after just leaving to go on a long trip.
The 2019 Ford Edge also includes functionality with the FordPass app you can download on your smartphone and similar devices. With this app you can remotely unlock or lock your SUV, check on vehicle information or service status, and even compare fuel prices in your area or along your planned route. This is the kind of next-level technology that makes the Edge stand apart and hold itself above other SUVs on the market.
When driving, whether enjoying a leisurely cruise late at night or heading to work in the morning, nothing is more important than safety. The 2019 Ford Edge includes a broad suite of safety features and options to make sure you and your passengers, as well as other people around you, remain as safe as possible. This includes adaptive cruise control, which goes beyond standard cruise control to detect when traffic ahead of you slows down and automatically slows down too, then speeds back up to your set limit once traffic clears.
Evasive steering assist is an available feature that can provide greater steering support and control when you need to swerve to deal with sudden stopping or objects ahead of you. The 2019 Ford Edge also includes pre-collision assist and automatic emergency braking that helps at low speeds to apply brakes when a pedestrian or other vehicle is suddenly detected in your path. A blind spot information system can alert you when a vehicle is beside you in a blind spot, and the rear view camera offers far greater rear visibility than was previously possible.
If you choose the 2019 Ford Edge ST edition, you'll find available intelligent all-wheel drive that truly lets you master the road. Not only does this give you the level of vehicle control in poor weather and similar conditions you expect from all-wheel drive, but the intelligent system uses sensors to constantly monitor your traction. The system then makes automatic adjustments to torque balance between the front and rear wheels to maximize traction and keep you in control.
