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

Ford has revealed its new Edge SUV - a facelifted version of the outgoing model with fresh styling, new engines and updated infotainment and safety equipment.

The new Edge also offers a new fully configurable 3D digital instrument cluster that allows drivers to personalise the layout of the speedometer, rev-counter and vehicle information displays to suit their own preferences.

The first glimpse of the refreshed SUV that we've got here is in the sporty ST-Line trim, which enhances the styling by adding a wide mesh grille, deep side skirts and 20-inch aluminium wheels as standard.

It also comes with high-tech kit including wireless charging pad which enables cable-free charging of compatible devices, and Ford's SYNC 3 communications and entertainment system - compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto at no extra cost which enables drivers to control connected smartphones, audio, navigation and climate using voice commands and an eight-inch colour touchscreen.




On the inside, the spacious new Edge interior exudes a premium feel offering a full length panoramic glass roof, heated and cooled front seats, heated rear seats and a heated steering wheel. Other elements that help the new Edge keep its technological.advantage are cross traffic alert, adaptive steering and a load of parking aids that help drivers get out of tight parking spaces.

The engine is mated to a new eight-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel drive, and meets the latest Euro 6 emissions standards. The SUV gets post-collision braking that automatically applies the brakes following an accident to avoid secondary collisions, evasive steering assist which helps drivers steer around slower cars to avoid accidents and adaptive cruise control that can take the auto to a full stop and comes with lane keep assist.

The facelifted Ford Edge has been detailed for the European market, headlined by a new 2.0-litre "EcoBlue" bi-turbo diesel engine which could hint at what's to come for the Australian Endura.

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