After the recent facelift, we expect that this mid-size crossover will carry on for a couple of more years before we see a complete redesign. Therefore, we are pretty sure that the 2020 Ford Edge won’t feature any notable change. The recent update was pretty intense and included changes in various aspects. There is a new, significantly improved styling, as well as new engines in the offer. All this clearly indicates that further major changes won’t come before the redesign, and that won’t happen in the next couple of years.
The 2020 Ford Edge will carry on with familiar design characteristics, with features that make this model one of the best two-row mid-size SUVs on the market. Possibly, we could see minor updates only for the next year. Things that come to our minds are new exterior color options and a couple of new standard features. The new model should hit the market sometime late in the year.
2020 Ford Edge Redesign
Base design characteristics definitely won’t change in the 2020 Ford Edge. Despite the current generation has been around since 2014, the recent update has brought so many novelties, the crossover will remain fresh and competitive for some more time for sure. Of course, the focus of this update was the styling and the changes were pretty intense. The new version came with a completely new front end, with new grille layout, new headlights, bumper and many more new parts, all completely adapted to the brand’s latest design language.
Other areas of the vehicle also came with changes. The rear end is also new, so it is hard to expect any notable modification in the following years. The best we could see for the 2020 Ford Edge is a couple of new color options.
Unlike the exterior, the interior didn’t come with such massive changes with the recent facelift. Of course, there were some revisions, particularly at the center stack, but the overall design has largely remained the same. The 2020 Ford Edge will continue in the same way. That isn’t such a bad thing, considering the overall cabin quality is pretty decent, considering the model’s age. More importantly, the cabin is very spacious and comfortable. Both rows are very generous in terms of leg and headroom. The front seats are particularly comfortable, thanks to pretty good seats, which are massive, supportive and also very adjustable.
Higher trims even come with 10-way adjustable front seats, which is highly beneficial in terms of the overall comfort. The cabin offers plenty of space not just for passengers, but for luggage as well. The cargo area is pretty generous. You can count on about 39 cubic feet behind rear seats, while the overall capacity goes around 74 cubic feet. These are pretty average ratings for the class.
In terms of standard equipment, we could see a couple of additions for the next year, but most things will remain the same. This means that base models will come standard with cloth upholstery, Bluetooth, a six-speaker stereo, satellite radio, Wi-Fi hotspot etc. Higher trims offer upgrades in terms of an 8-inch touchscreen, which comes with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, HD Radio, a nine-speaker sound system, navigation etc. Also, you can get plenty of conveniences such as power-adjustable front seats, leather upholstery, heated and ventilated front and rear seats, leather-wrapped steering wheel and more.
When it comes to safety features, all models will come standard with things like rearview camera, lane keep assist, automatic high beams, blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert, pre-collision warning etc. That’s pretty impressive, but there is also a pretty long list of available features. Some of the highlights are things like adaptive cruise control with stop-and-go functionality, lane centering, adaptive headlights etc.
2020 Ford Edge Engines
Count on two familiar engine options in the offer for the 2020 Ford Edge. Base models will carry on with a 2.0-liter turbo-four, which is good for about 250 horsepower. Such amount seems more than enough for a daily ride and will satisfy most drivers. Still, if you want something peppier, there is an optional 2.7-liter V6, which is good for about 335 horsepower and 380 pound-feet of torque. Both models come in a pair with 8-speed automatic transmission.
When it comes to fuel economy, the base engine is actually pretty good, as it returns around 22 mpg in the city and 29 mpg on the highway. On the other side, the optional V6 is a little bit thirstier and returns around 19 mpg in the city and 26 mpg on the highway.
2020 Ford Edge Release Date and Price
There are no bigger changes to come for the 2020 Ford Edge, so there is no reason to see it before the end of the year. Also, there is no reason for changes in price, so base models should go around 30.000 dollars.
