If you need a driveable mid-size SUV, the 2020 Ford Edge is definitely one of the best choices for you. Introduced in 2015, the current generation of this crossover competes among 2-row mid-size crossover. It received a major update last year, so despite rumors about the 2020 Ford Edge redesign, we shouldn’t see any important change for the next year. This model has a lot of good things to offer, so we have no doubt it will remain competitive, despite the fact that the competition is getting tougher these days.
For the next year, the company could possibly introduce minor novelties, such as new color options. On the other side, specs will definitely remain the same, including engines, which are all very potent and capable. Given the lack of changes, we should see its launch in a typical time, sometime late in the year.
2020 Ford Edge Design
When it comes to base design characteristics, we won’t see any important change. The current generation received a significant update, which included various kinds of changes. This was a pretty intense facelift, so both ends of the SUV are completely new. At the front, you can notice that everything is completely new, starting from headlights, bumper grille and more. The rear end also received a huge portion of changes. All in all, there is no reason to expect bigger changes for the next year. It will continue with the same styling, while the mechanics are practically the same as in the model that arrived four years ago. Therefore, new 2020 Ford Edge colors are pretty much everything we could see new for the next year, along with a couple of new standard features.
Once again, expect no bigger changes. The 2020 Ford Edge will continue with a familiar cabin design, which is characterized by very good overall quality. Still, some rivals feel more upscale on the inside, due to nicer materials and more attractive dashboard design. Despite the lack of style, the cabin is built very well. Also, the sound insulation is pretty good, so the crossover is pretty quiet even at higher speeds.
Both rows are very generous in space, both in terms of leg and headroom. The front seats are pretty massive and supportive. Also, it is very easy to find a perfect driving position, thanks to a 10-way adjustable seat. The cargo area is also pretty decent, as you can count on around 40 cubic feet behind rear seats.
When it comes to the standard equipment, we could see a couple of novelties for the next year, but the base organization will remain the same. The base SE trim level includes things like a 4.2-inch display, a rearview camera, Bluetooth, voice controls, a 4G data connection and Wi-Fi hotspot, and a six-speaker sound system, etc.
The SEL offers a fine amount of upgrades. Some of the highlights are dual-zone climate control, leather-wrapped steering wheel, power-adjustable driver’s seat, 8-inch touchscreen display, Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto integration and much more.
The 2020 Ford Edge Titanium is also about to continue in the same way. It offers a lot of upgrades and some of the highlights are things like 19-inch wheels, a hands-free liftgate, noise-reducing front windows, leather upholstery, upgraded interior trim, ambient interior lighting, remote engine start, and a 12-speaker B&O audio system
Finally, there is the ST trim, which besides more powerful engine also features various chassis and suspension upgrades, as well as a fine amount of distinctive styling details.
Powerful engines are probably the strongest point of this crossover. All versions except the performance ST model are equipped with a 2.0-liter turbo-four engine which is good for about 250 horsepower. Such an amount of power is definitely more than enough for a daily driver. Moreover, it provides a lot of driving dynamics as well. Still, if you want to get a real performer, go for this performance version.
When it comes to 2020 Ford Edge specs, you can count on a 2.7-liter V6, which is good for about 330 horsepower and 380 pound-feet of torque. Although some reports were also suggesting 2020 Ford Edge Hybrid, the electrified version definitely won’t come so soon.
This crossover stands pretty good in terms of safety. All models come with things like a rearview camera, lane keep assist, automatic high beams, blind spot monitoring with rear cross traffic alert, and a pre-collision warning. In higher trims, you can also get adaptive cruise control with stop-and-go functionality, lane centering, adaptive headlights and many more.
2020 Ford Edge Release Date and Price
Considering that there are no changes planned for the next year, the 2020 Ford Edge will arrive sometime in the last quarter of the year. When it comes to the price, base models should go around 30.000 dollars.
