2019 Ford Edge Titanium
For this week’s review we’ve gotten our hands on the 2019 Ford Edge Titanium. Ford has given the Edge a refreshed look. The Sport trim is now gone but replacing it is the ST trim which comes with an exclusive Twin Turbo V6 engine borrowed from the Lincoln Nautilus. All Edge models now come standard with Ford’s Co-Pilot360 suite of driver assist features, and 8 speed automatic transmission.
2 engine options for consumers
2.0L Turbo I4 - 250 HP @ 5500 & 275 lb-ft @ 3000
7.6 seconds 0-100 km/hr
2.7 L Turbo V6 - 335 HP @ 5500 & 380 lb-ft @ 3000
6.1 seconds 0-100 km/hr
8 speed automatic transmission. Optional AWD
Stopping distance from 100-0 is really good. 129 ft.
In the ST trim you’ll have better brakes, and larger wheels improving the stopping distance to 108 ft!
Handling is decent for a vehicle of this size.
Impressed by how the suspension soaks up the road imperfections. I didn’t take this off road to drive.
I hear the suspensions are stiffer in the ST model.
2.0L Engine FWD: 22/29/24- City/Highway/Combined
2.0L Engine AWD: 21/28/23- City/Highway/Combined
2.7L Engine AWD: 19/26/21- City/Highway/Combined
CABIN NOISE: 8/10
Cabin was relatively quiet in the Titanium trim
New grill, new wheel designs, revised front and rear bumpers, updated front & rear lighting elements
INTERIOR FOR DRIVER: 8/10
The seat are pretty comfortable but does not have as much range of control as its rivals
The dash designed to be ergonomic and intuitive to use
If you look just above the cup holders, there’s actually a small slot to hold your phone! I found it pretty handy!
It has a rotary style shifter like the Jaguar vehicles I tested before.
INTERIOR FOR PASSENGERS: 8.5/10
The front passenger seat has the same range of motion as the driver seat which isn’t commonly found!
The Edge really excels at rear passenger leg and head room. Thanks to its straight hood line it will have class leading head room for adults. It’s leg room scores very high in it’s category as well.
The width of vehicle is wide enough to fit 3 adults easily in the rear.
INTERIOR STORAGE: 9/10
Cargo capacity is a selling point as to why someone may choose the Edge.
Great for a family road trip!
INFOTAINMENT SYSTEM: 9/10
Runs the latest SYNC 3 Operating System
Very intuitive to use
Supports Apple Car Play & Android Auto
Ford’s SYNC 3 Messaging system makes it easy to interact with text messages.
You can control the climate system using your voice or touch screen.
OVERALL IMPRESSION OF THE 2019 Ford Edge Titanium:
Ford’s 2019 Edge is a note able upgrade to the average compact cross over in North America. I am happy with the comfortable seats, smooth ride, and spacious interior making it a perfect vehicle to fit 4 adults with luggage easily and go on a road trip. If you need the space the Edge is a great option. Although the ST trim is the most expensive for the Edge, it is inheriting the same engine from it’s luxury brand, Lincoln.
This is a note able upgrade to the average compact crossover in North America. If you’re shopping for other popular mid size SUVs like the CRV, and Rav4 then I would consider the Edge non-ST trims as the pricing is good value. However, if I am considering the ST trim of the Edge ($47,450) then I would step up and upgrade to their luxury version, the 2019 Lincoln Nautilus ($50,450). It is only $3000 more but you get much more luxurious cabin, adaptive suspensions and warranty that is competitive with other luxury brands.
Where would you go with your Edge?
