Starting with the 2022 model year, entry-level SE trims will be able to be equipped with a Black Appearance package as an option. It comes with black wheels that are 19 inches in diameter and a variety of other black external elements. The SEL model now also has an available Adventure package, which includes faux-leather upholstery, 18-inch wheels with all-terrain tyres, and exterior highlights in grey and black. This package may be added on as an aftermarket addition. In addition, the spec sheet has been updated to include many additional extras that may be added by the dealer, including a safe that is affixed to the centre console. The colour pallet has been expanded to include Flight Blue and Forged Green.
Ford Edge engine and performance
With 250 horsepower, the standard turbocharged four-cylinder engine should be sufficient for the majority of consumers, despite its sluggish acceleration during acceleration. All-wheel drive and a twin-turbo 2.7-liter V-6 engine producing 335 horsepower are standard on the Edge ST. The Edge is not as nimble as some of its competitors, but it is still a pretty entertaining vehicle to drive and it offers comforting stability while turning. The ride is pleasant despite the terrible road surfaces, and the steering has a decent weight to it, but it does not provide a lot of information to the driver.
The EPA gives vehicles with four cylinders a rating of up to 29 miles per gallon on the motorway, and even the sporty ST model is able to obtain a rating of 25 miles per gallon on the highway.
Interior and Comfort
The cabin of the Edge has sufficient space to accommodate four persons and is a nice place to sit for a commute or a road trip. Although the materials used throughout the cabin are of high quality, the panel fit and finish may be improved. Aside from it, the interior layout is uncomplicated and unobtrusive, and there is ample space both for passengers and for their belongings. If you value the ability to store items in the cargo area of your vehicle, the two-row crossover market category is an excellent facilitator. The Edge was able to hold all 29 of our carry-on baggage when the rear seats were folded down. The cargo capacity of all of its rivals is comparable to that of the Edge, although the latter vehicle’s cabin offers a fraction more breathing room thanks to some smart storage cubbies.
Infotainment and Connectivity
All Edge vehicles are equipped with Ford’s most recent Sync 4A software interface, which features a big 12.0-inch touchscreen display on the centre stack. Both Android Auto and Apple CarPlay are now common features that can communicate with one another through a wireless connection. In addition, Ford provides a Wi-Fi hotspot standard on all Edge models, but the in-dash navigation system continues to be an available option.
Safety and Driver Assistance Features
There are a number of useful driver-assistance systems that come standard on the vehicle. These include automated emergency braking, lane-keeping assist, and blind-spot monitoring. More sophisticated functions are available as optional upgrades. Key features are:
- Standard automated emergency braking.
- Standard lane-departure warning and lane-keeping assist.
- Available adaptive cruise control.
