Redesign Info

The new model year is coming soon, and Ford has given us our first glimpse of what the 2019 Edge will have in store for buyers. The initial release focuses mostly on the all-new ST version, but it touches on the rest of the Edge lineup too.

The entire 2019 Edge lineup will boast a slightly updated look that includes a wider front grille, new front and rear bumpers, updated LED headlights and a reworked hood. The Edge ST gets a more aggressive design that includes ground effects, a sportier mesh grille, 21-inch wheels, and sharper front and rear bumpers.

Inside, the 2019 Edge will gain a new center console with an all-new rotary shifter, which frees up room for the new wireless charging pad. Otherwise, the Edge’s interior will remain the same. As for the performance version, there are “ST” badges on the steering wheel, seatbacks and scuff plates, and a set of shift paddles behind the steering wheel.

Under the hood will sit the same 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder, but with an extra 5 horsepower. This should put its standard output at 250 hp and 275 pound-feet of torque. We expect all else to remain the same, including its base 3.5-liter V6 with 280 hp and 250 lb-ft of torque.

What will be new will be the ST’s 2.7-liter V6, which will pump out 335 hp and 380 lb-ft of torque. The ST will use a new eight-speed automatic transmission, while we expect the other trims to continue with a six-speed automatic. Helping set the ST even further apart from the rest of the lineup will be its upgraded sport suspension and available performance-brake system. The former Edge Sport will reportedly no longer be offered.

The current Ford Edge struggled in IIHS testing, as its “Acceptable” rating in the small-overlap test, its “Basic” front crash prevention results, and its “Poor” headlight rating all keep it far from being an IIHS Top Safety Pick. It’s doubtful any of the changes for 2019 will improve its overall rating much, but it will gain automatic emergency braking, post-collision braking, evasive-steering assist, adaptive cruise, and more as options.

Pricing & Release Date

Ford expects to have the 2019 Edge in showrooms this summer.

Official pricing remains unknown for now, but the non-ST Edge will likely see a small price increase over the current model, which ranges from $30,215 to $41,670 (destination fees included). We expect the ST trim to come in slightly above that top price.

The Edge’s competition will include the Nissan Murano, Kia Sorento, and the Hyundai Santa Fe.
