Ford looks to extend its SUV presence in the UK with the introduction of the new Edge. Priced from £29,995, the new SUV from Ford is arriving in dealerships this summer. It joins the popular Ford Kuga and EcoSport compact SUV to complete Ford’s three-car SUV line-up.
Available in Zetec, Titanium and Sport series, the all-new Edge is well-equipped as standard, offering Ford intelligent all-wheel drive, Active Noise Control, Pedestrian Detection, Ford DAB Audio with SYNC 2 connectivity system, privacy glass and 19 inch alloy wheels. The SUV is offered with a choice of 10 exterior colours including new Electric Spice and Bronze Fire, and is available with a wide range of interior leather trim options.
The Edge will be offered in the UK with a choice of 180PS 2.0-litre TDCi diesel engine with six-speed manual transmission, or 210PS bi-turbo 2.0â€‘litre TDCi diesel with six-speed PowerShift automatic transmission. Both powertrains will aim to deliver 48.7mpg fuel efficiency and 149g/km CO2 supported by Auto-Start-Stop technology.
Edge debuts segment-first Pre-Collision Assist with Pedestrian Detection; a camera- and radar-based system that can operate at speeds from 5mph to 110mph to detect vehicles and people in the road ahead. The system can automatically apply the brakes if a potential collision is detected and the driver does not respond to warnings.
The all-new Ford Edge made its European debut at Frankfurt Motorshow in 2015. In North America, the Edge was introduced in 2007 and has consistently been a top-seller in the segment. It is built at Ford’s Oakville Plant in Ontario, Canada, and available to buy in The Americas, Europe, Russia and Eastern Asia.
