The upcoming 2018 Ford Edge, with its combination of cargo options, daring styling, and smooth performance, is a crossover SUV worth considering. With a refreshed design, the new Edge tries to attract a new audience. However, by keeping the proven qualities of previous models, it also seeks to keep the old customer base, as well.
2018 Ford Edge – Exterior Design and Look
As opposed to the 2017 model, the 2018 Ford Edge will have an athletic look. In addition to some subtle athletic updates, it will also feature some new, elegant design lines, as well. In general, the upcoming SUV will still have that famous squat, wide profile. This will, of course, translate into a larger interior cargo space. When it comes to some design touches, we can expect a strong, yet conservative approach. In the front of the SUV, we will see a larger trapezoidal grille, while in the back, we will get a more sloped design. The rest of the exterior changes will come in the form of revised headlights and taillights, new wheels and a tweaked beak.Interior features and tech equipment
Inside, the 2018 Ford Edge will offer exactly what is expected from it. In terms of available space, it will be more than capable of accommodating up to 5 fully grown individuals. Both the driver and the passengers can expect lots of legroom and headroom. As far as the cargo options are concerned, the new Edge will offer plenty of them. The cabin of 2018 Ford Edge in general, feels more premium and classy, in comparison to the previous models. This is mostly due to the implementation of some new, high-quality materials and redesigned adjustable seats. This time, instead of using adaptive-touch controls exclusively, the Ford has opted to reintroduce buttons for climate and audio controls. In the tech department, the customers can expect a parking assist system, a rearview camera, advanced navigation system and more. For entertainment, there will be the Sync 3 system, with a 6-speaker audio system, Bluetooth, and USB.

In the power department, the newest 2018 Ford Edge will feature 3 engine options. The first one will be a 245 hp, 2.0-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder engine with 275 lb-ft of torque.
