The new 2023 Ford Edge is a midsize 2-row crossover SUV known primarily for its sharp styling, spacious interior, and excellent Performance. This compact crossover looks like the Ford Escape and is smaller than the Ford Explorer. In general, the Ford Edge is SUV just right for everyday use.
Inside, it offers a spacious cabin that is more modern than many bigger 3-row crossovers. On top of that, the Ford Edge is powered by two different engines. The main engine is a turbocharged 2.0-liter 4-cylinder unit, while turbocharged 2.7-liter V6 endows the Edge ST variant, producing 335 horses and 380 lb-ft of torque.
2023 Ford Edge Redesign
The 2023 Ford Edge still dominates in the segments with its sharp styling. This SUV sits proportionally between Ford Escape and the giant Explorer. For 2023, as far what we know, the manufacturer will introduce some mild changes. However, 18-inch alloy wheels, LED headlights, and taillights are standard from the entry-level SE trim.
The much more attractive is the ST version that comes with a gloss-black grille, plus black bezels in the headlights and dual exhaust outlets. We also like the Performance Blue color that gives ST model a sportier stance. The ST-Line is available as well, featuring similar cosmetic details to the ST. You can literary found the same 20-inch alloy wheels on both models.
One of the highlights of the Ford Edge model is definitively its spacious cabin. This 5-seater offers comfort for all occupants. Passengers can enjoy a generous 40.6 inches of legroom on the back, which is almost est in class. Luggage space measures 39.2 cubic feet behind the rear seats, and it can be increased to 73.4 cubic feet when the rear seats are folded.
On the technology side, the Edge houses a center console with a new vertically oriented 12-inch touch screen and a rotary gear selector. Titanium trim adds a wireless charging pad, which is still optional in the SEL. However, even the base model offers many dual-zone automatic climate control, remote start/lock/unlock, and keyless entry/ignition.
