Ford Edge Titanium Elite Does Its Best Denali Impression

Ford recently used the North American International Auto Show to introduce the 2019 Edge and now the company has revealed the Edge Titanium with a new elite package.

Designed to appeal to wealthy consumers, the Elite package builds on the already well-equipped Edge Titanium and adds unique exterior features including additional body-color trim and exclusive 20-inch alloy wheels. The crossover has also has a modified front bumper and additional metallic accents.

While the styling changes are minor, the updated Edge boasts a new front fascia, a revised grille, and standard LED headlights. Designers also installed a new hood and a revised liftgate.

Interior changes are modest but include a redesigned center console and a new rotary gear selector. The Edge also gains some new driver assistance features such as Evasive Steering Assist, Post-Collision Braking, and Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop-and-Go and Lane Centering.

Power is provided by a 2.0-liter EcoBoost engine that develops 250 hp (186 kW) and 275 lb-ft (372 Nm) of torque. It is connected to a new eight-speed automatic transmission which helps to improve fuel-efficiency.

Of course, buyers looking for something sportier can opt for the Edge ST which has a twin-turbo 2.7-liter V6 engine with 335 hp (249 kW) and 380 lb-ft (514 Nm) of torque. The model also has a sport-tuned suspension, unique seats, and distinctive exterior styling.

The Edge Titanium Elite package will debut at the Chicago Auto Show later this week and it will likely go on sale this summer.

    its no Denali , the front looks like every other edge. It doesn’t seem to sit itself far enough apart from the regular edges. The inside should have wood and better leather seats, the dash should have leather stitching. If I was looking at a midsize SUV from GMC for a Denali , I would not even consider this as is something I would cross shop with a GMC Denali product.

    Ford needs to take a page from Nissan’s playbook and bring in a new steering wheel design. The first thing I notice in any new Ford is that ugly plastic airbag cover and dated switchgear.

    No matter how nice the rest of the interior, the steering wheel brings it right back to 2003.

      I have a ’17 Edge and I agree with you completely.

  • Paul Webster

    Not a pretty design. Very much prefer the earlier sheet metal. The interior is…. meh. The “sport” suspension should be stock (zoom, zoom), and please ditch the 20 inch wheels unless you plan to fill the vast exposed area with a decent size rotor/caliper combination.

    Not sure what it is about the edge that I do not like, even with the new updates.. still looks wrong to me..

  • Harry_Wild

    I will consider the Edge ST but has only one color interior – black and limited to only 4 or 5 exterior color choices while the regular Edge get 9 or 10 exterior colors. Ford should of name the ST model: “Ford Edge ST Limited”! LOL! Ford should add the 2.7L turbo in the ST as an engine option in this top the line Edge Titanium Elite line too. After all, top of the means the best, without a 2.7L turbo engine option, certain be hard for Ford to say that!
    Depend if Ford price it close to the Sport then I will seriously consider it, if not, maybe pass on it for the first year until the cream of the crop buyers are no more and dealers are willing to deal. I has my experiences with the Raptor and Focus RS models. At one point, the dealers were marking the Raptor up $35K and RS $20K! Some idiots brought them still at the markup too!

    I think it’s the best looking in its segment, which includes the Santa Fe, Grand Cherokee, Murano, and the Forester.

    Old. Boring.

  • SteersUright

    Who in their right mind ever thought that a single vehicle needed 4 names?! Ford Edge Titanium Elite. Seriously??

  • pjl35

    Such a cheap interior; Ford was idiotic in not giving it more of a facelift when they did the exterior.

  • Nordschleife

    Every time I see these headlights I think of the Buick Enclave.

  • Bash

    If this is so nice for a Ford, makes me curious about it’s Lincoln cousin. How would it look like?
