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.
