Facelifted Ford Edge Arrives In Europe With New 235HP Bi-Turbo Diesel

Ford has unveiled the facelifted Edge in Europe following its debut at the North American International Auto Show earlier this year.

Billed as the company’s “most technologically advanced SUV ever,” the updated Edge has a new front fascia, a revised grille and restyled LED headlights. The crossover also boasts a new hood and an updated liftgate.

Interior changes are relatively minor but include a redesigned center console and a new rotary gear selector. Drivers will also find a “fully configurable 3D digital instrument cluster,” an optional wireless smartphone charger and a new B&O PLAY premium audio system which has been specifically designed for the Edge.

Drivers looking for something more stylish will want to check out the Edge ST-Line which features additional body color trim and a black mesh grille. The model also has 20-inch wheels and a premium interior with aluminum pedals as well as perforated Miko-Dinamica seats.

In terms of technology, the Edge gains a handful of driver assistance systems. New European features include Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop-and-Go, Lane Centring Assist, Evasive Steering Assist and Post‑Collision Braking.

Under the hood, there’s a new 2.0-liter EcoBlue bi-turbo diesel engine that produces 238 PS (235hp / 175 kW). It is paired to an eight-speed automatic transmission and a standard all-wheel drive system.

Drivers who don’t need as much performance can opt for a less extreme 2.0-liter EcoBlue engine with outputs of 150 PS (148hp / 110 kW) and 190 PS (187hp/ 139 kW).

Following the Edge’s debut at the Geneva Motor Show, the model will go on sale in Europe later this year.

    is this vignale front?

    • MarketAndChurch

      It’s just the ST trim. The Vignale will have more brushed chrome accents.

  • no25

    prefacelift looks way better in my opinion.

  • Miknik

    Funny hoe the Mondeo/Fusion facelift still hasn’t arrived, and this FL is released same time…

  • rover10

    The new frontend looks wider and cleaner than before. The tail lights add a bit more visual interest.

  • Paul Webster

    Europeans must love their diesels.

    • DMJ

      We don’t. But with high fuel prices here we don’t have any chance, specially in bigger cars and SUV’s.

  • Jesse A. C. Majors

    No.

  • Harry_Wild

    Look better in white! Wonder what it looks like in black however! I neutral right on the design and interior center dash which looks outdated to me!

  • DMJ

    Till today I saw only 1 on the street. I see more Ferraris than Ford Edges.

  • Assume you’re aware but there’s lots of pics of the Kuga in there…

  • Bash

    Bad choice for the gear shifter,, I wanted to see that rotary shifter instead

    • Rocket

      The 2019 Edge does have a rotary shifter. I believe that’s a photo of the Kuga’s interior.

      • Bash

        That makes sense. Thanks!

  • BobV12

    price price price price we need a freaking price, no need to talk about it if you do not have a price

  • eb110americana

    235 hp is pretty nuts from a production 2.0L diesel, the torque must be over 400 lb. ft.!

  • Sedat GÜNAYDIN

    What about torque number? Did ford swear never divulge it?

  • Rocket

    If I’m not mistaken, that’s what was pictured, albeit in a different trim level. They updated the gallery and removed the Kuga photos.

  • Miknik

    You do realize that the Edge is several years older and this is just a mild facelift?

    • Sébastien

      Well the grille/headlight/DRL were not like that before…

  • cashifyer

    Very few pics of the interior – because its hideous! Ford needs to step up when its coming to the interiors. they are still stuck in the early 00´s
