With extensive exterior upgrades, the addition of a number of active safety features, an optional performance boost and a new eight-speed automatic transmission, the 2019 Ford Edge deserves a long look. Its infotainment system works well but is dated compared with its rivals, however.
The 2019 Ford Edge is a midsize SUV that seats five. The Edge is offered in SE, SEL, Titanium and ST trims. An eight-speed automatic transmission and front-wheel drive are standard. All-wheel drive is available.
A number of active safety features become standard on the 2019 Ford Edge, including automatic emergency braking, a blind-spot monitoring system, cross traffic alert, a lane keeping system and automatic high-beam headlamps. On the cosmetic side, the Edge gets a new front and rear fascia, as well as a new grille, hood and rear liftgate.
The exterior upgrades give the 2019 Ford Edge a bold enhancement in both the front and the rear. It has a more confident and aggressive look than previous models. The Edge’s wide stance also is enhanced by the LED headlights being pushed to the corners of the front grille.
Standard features include quad-beam halogen headlights, LED taillights, power mirrors with an integrated blind-spot mirror, a rear spoiler and 18-inch aluminum wheels. Options include stainless steel exhaust tips, high-intensity-discharge headlights, a foot-activated power liftgate and a panoramic moonroof.
There’s plenty of passenger space inside the 2019 Edge. Though the interior isn’t cutting edge in its design, it’s functional with two front covered bins and a deep center armrest storage area. The Edge’s cargo capacity is near the top of its class at 39.2 cubic feet with the seats up and 73.4 cubic feet with the seats folded.
A six-way manual cloth driver’s seat and four-way manual cloth passenger seat are standard, as are manual air conditioning and a tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel. Optional features include dual-zone automatic climate control, an auto-dimming rearview mirror and a power tilt-and-telescoping heated steering wheel.
Two engines are available for the 2019 Edge. A turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine produces 250 horsepower and 280 pound-feet of torque. The ST, the first sport utility vehicle from Ford Performance, packs a twin-turbocharged 2.7-liter V6 engine that cranks out 335 horsepower and 380 pound-feet of torque. Both engines are paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission. Front-wheel drive is standard on all but the all-wheel-drive ST. All-wheel drive is available on all other trims.
The Edge ST delivers the best handling with a sport suspension that minimizes body roll. The other models focus more on comfort.
The base Edge with front-wheel drive achieves an EPA-estimated 22/29 mpg city/highway. The ST gets up to 19/26 mpg city/highway. The Edge can tow up to 3,500 pounds when properly equipped.
The Edge’s infotainment system feels antiquated because of its dated graphics. The system includes a USB port, Bluetooth, voice controls, satellite radio, a six-speaker stereo system, a 4.2-inch display and a Wi-Fi hotspot. Optional technology includes a dual-headrest DVD system, a front 180-degree camera with washer, remote start, SYNC 3 with an 8-inch touchscreen with two smart-charging USB ports and a voice-activated navigation system.
New for 2019, the Edge has post-collision braking. Other standard features are forward collision warning, pre-collision assist with pedestrian detection, blind spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert and lane departure warning. New optional safety equipment includes evasive steering assist, lane centering and enhanced active park assist.
