Renewing the Ford Age (Edge) 2-generation acquired a more refined, more aggressive exterior, a modernized interior, an expanded range of equipment and new safety systems, received a more efficient 2.0 EcoBoost engine and 8 automatic transmissions. But the most important acquisition is the “charged” version of the Ford Edge ST with the 340-horsepower 2.7-V6 EcoBoost petrol powered by the Ford Performance specialists. In our review, the new Ford Edge and Edge ST 2019-2020 – photo and video, price and configuration, technical specifications.
The sale of the updated Ford Age 2-generation in the US market is scheduled for the summer of 2020, but the price has not yet been announced by the manufacturer. The European version of the restyled crossover debuts in the spring of this year at the Geneva Motor Show. According to preliminary information, the updated Ford Edge may even reach Russia, but not before 2020.

As a result of last year in 2019 in America sold more than 142,000 copies of the model.

Head optics are already in the base completely LED.

The Ford Edge ST version, for all its external similarity with the conventional Ford Edge designs, looks more aggressive and predatory. The crossover modified by specialists from Ford Performance, in addition to the ST series on the front and rear, received an original radiator grille covered with a fine grid, a more powerful front bumper with an enlarged air intake, an aerodynamic body around, original 21-inch alloy wheels with low-profile rubber, sports brakes with calipers, painted in bright red color, a powerful rear bumper with vertical rectangular nozzles of exhaust pipes.

Although they are reduced to the installation of only a new center console, which has a “control washer” 8 automatic transmission, more convenient compartment for small things and coasters, as well as a platform for wireless charging smartphones.
