2019 Ford Edge Overview

By Cars.com Editors
Vehicle Overview

Ford has unveiled its refreshed-for-2019 Edge five-seat SUV. The SUV shows off a lightly face-lifted model with simplified powertrain options and a new high-performance ST version replacing the Sport model. It hits dealerships in summer 2018, and competitors include the Jeep Grand Cherokee, Nissan Murano and Hyundai Santa Fe Sport.

Exterior
This is the first face-lift for the Edge since it switched to its current platform from a Mazda-designed chassis for the 2015 model year. The 2019 model is a mild redo, with new headlights, bumpers and taillights; it maintains the fenders, roof and door panels from the previous model.

The ST model gets a different color scheme, with blacked-out trim, grille and side sills. The grille itself also has a hexagonal pattern that's meant to be sportier than the body-color unit on other Edge trims (SE, SEL, Titanium). There are four new wheel and color choices, with Performance Blue being exclusive to the ST.

Interior
While the exterior gets a light freshening, the interior does not. It carries over almost unchanged from 2018, with the exception of an update to the center console shifter. The move to a new electronically controlled eight-speed automatic transmission sees a new rotary shifter installed in the console, just like in the larger Explorer.

Dimensionally, the interior is unchanged, as are the materials. The ST model gets some more heavily bolstered seats and unique leather patterns with silver seat stitching, ...

There are four new wheel and color choices, with Performance Blue being exclusive to the ST.

Interior
While the exterior gets a light freshening, the interior does not. It carries over almost unchanged from 2018, with the exception of an update to the center console shifter. The move to a new electronically controlled eight-speed automatic transmission sees a new rotary shifter installed in the console, just like in the larger Explorer.

Dimensionally, the interior is unchanged, as are the materials. The ST model gets some more heavily bolstered seats and unique leather patterns with silver seat stitching, along with different sill plates, a unique gauge cluster and an ST-branded steering wheel. New options include a 12-speaker B&O Play premium audio system by Bang & Olufsen, Qi wireless smartphone charging and remote start. The FordPass Connect multimedia connectivity system with Wi-Fi will be standard, enabling the connection of up to 10 wireless personal electronic devices, and enabling communication with smartphones via the FordPass app. Sync app link will also enable in-vehicle Amazon Alexa home connectivity.

Under the Hood
The standard engine for the new Edge is a turbocharged 2.0-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder making a healthy 250 horsepower and 275 pounds-feet of torque. It's mated to a standard eight-speed automatic transmission, which is new for 2019. Front-wheel drive is standard, with all-wheel drive optional.

The ST features the twin-turbocharged 2.7-liter EcoBoost V-6 found in the Fusion Sport, but it makes slightly more power here — 335 hp and 380 pounds-feet of torque. It is also mated to the eight-speed automatic, but the transmission gets a special tune and different gear ratios. Both powertrains get the rotary shifter, and the ST also features a Sport mode that changes shift patterns, throttle mapping and the instrument-cluster display while also adjusting the piped-in exhaust tone.

Wheel sizes range from 18 inches on lesser Edges up to optional 21-inch summer tires on the ST. An optional performance e-brake package with vented rear rotors and red-painted calipers is optional on the ST as well.

Safety
Ford is upping its safety game on the 2019 Edge by making a lot of electronic safety equipment standard. This includes forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking, lane departure warning and lane keep assist, post collision automatic braking and LED headlights with automatic high beams. Optional is parallel and perpendicular parking assist, and adaptive cruise control with stop-and-go and lane-centering capability.


2019 Edge Video

Ford updated its mid-size SUV, but the updates to the regular Edge aren't as exciting as the addition of the ST model for 2019. Both were revealed in Detroit ahead of the 2018 North American International Auto Show.

Warranty FAQs

What is a Bumper-to-Bumper warranty?

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

What is a Powertrain warranty?

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

What is included in Roadside Assistance?

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

What other services could be included in a warranty?

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.

What does CPO mean?

A certified pre-owned or CPO car has been inspected to meet minimum quality standards and typically includes some type of warranty. While dealers and third parties certify cars, the gold standard is an automaker-certified vehicle that provides a factory-backed warranty, often extending the original coverage. Vehicles must be in excellent condition and have low miles and wear to be certified, which is why off-lease vehicles feed many CPO programs.
