The Ford Edge was introduced to the market in 2006, moving Ford into the highly competitive midsize crossover SUV segment. Since its introduction, the Edge has been considered a top contender in the family car segment, helping increase the manufacturer’s sales after the big economic recession that affected the car industry so much. Like the Explorer before it, the Edge sits at the pinnacle of Ford’s SUV line-up, above the Kuga and Ecosport, and competes in what‘s now an ultra-competitive marketplace.
The Edge is a roomy and capable SUV. A 2.0-litre turbocharged 4-cylinder that's paired with an 8-speed automatic transmission is standard and provides smooth, quiet acceleration.
Buyers looking for a mid-size SUV that's a little nicer than the mainstream choices without a budget-busting price will find plenty to like in the 2020 Ford Edge. It's tight and controlled on the road and drives much like a sedan. The quietness of its cabin and the expansive passenger and cargo space is impressive, and it has one of the most spacious interiors in its class.
“We are delivering a truly technologically advanced SUV that can meet and exceed expectations in this growing segment, and complement new Kuga and all-new EcoSport to offer a complete SUV range,” de Waard said, “Over the past few years we have seen a dramatic shift among customers from cars to SUVs around the world. The time is right for a larger, more upscale SUV at the top of our European line-up.”
