A refreshed style and an automatic transmission upgrade with six speeds to one with nine. The changes would be mid-range upgrades to a popular five-passenger popular cruiser SUV completely redesigned for the 2015 model year and scheduled for its next complete redesign in the 2020 model year. Edge will return to the range 2018 as the largest and most expensive compact Evasion and a more sporting alternative to the Explorer of similar size but more family.
2018 Ford Edge Design
Starting at the Dallas Fort Worth Auto Show, the 2018 Ford Edge SEL Sport Appearance Package adds a number of cosmetic upgrades outside and inside the Ford Edge. With unique 19-inch wheels, the package provides anti-fog glasses and a side window trim. The surrounding grid, the mirror caps, the rear spoiler and the non-slip plates have all been painted in Magnetic Metallic.
Many higher cutting vehicles require buyers to opt for leather seats, but this is not the case with this model. The automaker has specifically chosen fabric seats to accommodate customers who live in warmer climates. But these fabric seats are a bit more luxurious than most, as they feature perforated inserts in Swedish Miko fabric and a sued cloth on the headrest of the front seat. Specially badged floor mats finish the look.

2018 Ford Edge Under the Hood
Ford’s naturally aspirated 3.5-liter V6 could disappear from the updated Edge. It can be replaced with a 2.3-liter EcoBoost with up to 300 horsepower and 300 pound-feet of torque, considerably more than the V6. The base of 2 liters of turbo-four should be carried over mainly unchanged. The European market can also accommodate one of the two gas engines in order to make it more attractive. The Edge Sport should take into account the EcoBoost V6 dual turbocharger of 2.7 liters. However, instead of 310 horsepower and 350 lb-ft of torque, it can be upgraded to the same output as in the Fusion. That means 325 horsepower and 380 lb-ft of torque that will give him a big lead over some of his rivals. The six-speed automaton could be upgraded to Ford’s nine-speed unit, but this is only a rumor at this point.
2018 Ford Edge Price and Release Date
The 2018 Ford Edge release date has not been revealed, but we expect it by the beginning of 2018. So far, the car has been very successful in the US, but Europe were average at best. This is because Edge is quite expensive and offers less than some of its competitors. For the 2018 model year, Ford should give the car a better value for money. The base price should also remain around $ 30,000, ie where most of its competitors are. However, higher-level models are expected to bring much more money, especially since it can cost as much, or more, as a Touareg that is better in the car.
