CARS.COM — The refreshed 2019 Ford Edge will come with a new range-topping variant: the Titanium Elite, outfitting the SUV with unique wheels, lower cladding and rear skid plates. Citing higher sales in recent years for top Edge trim levels like the Titanium and Sport, Ford says it will position the Titanium Elite as a cosmetic package atop the Titanium.

The 2019 Edge goes on sale late this summer; pricing is still pending. The 2018 Edge Titanium starts at $36,925 — about $6,700 more than the SUV’s base price — so it’s a safe bet that the 2019 Edge Titanium Elite will start somewhere north of that. Unless Ford restricts the Elite to just a sliver of 2019 Edge Titanium inventory, it shouldn’t be hard to find: As of Feb. 5, the Titanium accounted for nearly 1 in 4 new 2018 Edges on

The Elite’s changes amount to a monochrome appearance with body-colored cladding on the lower bumpers and side sills versus the Titanium’s gray cladding — a look that compares more closely to the monochrome Edge ST, save the latter model’s sportier ground effects. The Titanium Elite’s interior follows that of the Titanium, which itself is changed little from the 2015-18 Edge. Ford confirmed the Elite won’t have additional cabin features, strictly speaking.

It’s unlikely the new trim will be the Edge’s priciest. That mantle currently belongs to the Edge Sport, the nameplate’s speediest variant thanks to an exclusive turbocharged V-6. With more power for 2019, the new Edge ST replaces the Sport.

Ford spokesman Dan Jones envisions the Elite as one branch of the SUV’s trim structure: Get to the Titanium “and then you kind of have a choice: You can go left toward the Titanium Elite or right toward the ST,” he said.
