Slight refreshment will be made on the new 2018 Ford Edge. Popular vehicle will get almost the same characteristics as its predecessor, while design won’t be changed. So, we should get again one excellent performer with stylish exterior, elegant interior and reliable powertrains. Furthermore, Edge has always been economical vehicle. Major change could be weight lose since some aluminum and carbon-fiber could replace existing materials in body structure. This will affect fuel economy, but not radically. From other highlights, be sure that infotainment system is going to be updated with latest gadgets.
2018 Ford Edge engines
Power source of the 2018 Ford Edge is coming from 3.7-l V6 engine. Models with this option can deliver up to 305 hp and 280 lb-ft of torque. Fuel consumption for Edge with this powertrain is around 23 mpg combined, and it could be better with other possible options. One of these is 3.5-l EcoBoost V6. With less power and torque level, we doubt this one could be too much interesting for buyers if there is no fuel economy boost of 27 mpg for highway drive. The best miles per gallon rate comes from four-cylinder unit. This 2.0-l turbocharged engine can go 25 mpg, but its power is not so strong, while torque level is much under first two options. Front wheel drive is standard, and until new 10-speed transmission is out, we will continue to use 6-speed gearbox in new Edge.
2018 Ford Edge redesign
All standard features from current crossover are going to be carried over to 2018 Ford Edge. That means SUV can take up to five passengers. Comfortable ride is secured with enough space in the cabin, but there are many other features too boost the impression. There are touch screen display, better audio system and many types of connections. Upper trims are going to feature navigation and larger wheels, which will be noticeable on the price.
From $27,000 for entry-level models, it is going to jump for couple of thousand of dollars higher. Since there is no lot of modifications to be done, there is no reason for this vehicle to be delayed. All fans should expect it in a year or so.
