2016 Ford Edge price, interior, specs, design cahnges are some of most information conect with this model. Second smallest or third largest (not counting Flex) Ford’s crossover SUV – Edge has recently gone through a revision process. Ford Edge 2016 is a second generation crossover which is still sleek, but way more handsome from now on. In fact, it’s almost intimidating and if it wasn’t a mid-size car but a flagship, it certainly would have been more intimidating.
2016 Ford Edge Review Design Exterior Changes
Base models which cover three trim levels (SE, SEL and Titanium) can be ordered with couple of engine options. Smaller is 2.0L EcoBoost turbo four which produces 245 hp and 275 lb-ft of torque, and the larger is 3.5L naturally aspirated V-6 which yields 280 hp and 250 lb-ft of torque. Apart from these, there’s a 2.7L EcoBoost twin turbocharged V-6 mill available with 2016 Ford Edge Sport models.
This mill allows the crossover to utilize 315 hp and 350 lb-ft of torque which by far exceed regular family car’s average power output. Ford still clings to the good old, plain 6-speed automatic transmission, and every single model in the range can be ordered as front or rear-wheel driven.
As mentioned above, 2016 Ford Edge is quite sharp and good looking. Its frontal fascia in particular, adds plenty of pizzazz thanks to sharp hexagonal grille, angular headlamps and one very heavy bumper. Hood lines are also quite sharp and round off SUV’s frontal fascia in best possible manner. Car is stunning from its profile too, and its rear end is no different. Thick pillars are looking good even though they are somewhat limiting the visibility. Tail-light design is unique this time and light bridge between them really ups the ante. Overall, new Edge looks better than ever before, and this styling should remain intact for years to come.
Interior Changes of 2016 Ford Edge
Story is slightly different on the inside, however. Blue oval’s trademark finish adorns the Edge as well as it does other Ford’s models and we could easily go without this particular cabin arrangement in at least one vehicle. However, plasticky cabin with protruded instrument panel is what we’re stuck with.
Top models do offer leather upholstery, but cabin does very little to hide the excess plastic. Feature list is as good as ever with 8-inch touch screen display and SYNC infotainment system available from SEL grade. Sony sound system, HD radio and other connectivity features are also standard throughout much of the lineup, but navigation with SiriusXM is strictly optional.
Being a family mid-size SUV, 2016 Ford Edge doesn’t really excel in terms of active safety gear, but it doesn’t fail to remain competitive as well. In fact, things are much better now than it used to be the case earlier. Edge currently offers a rearview camera, lane-keeping assist, blind-spot information system, cross-traffic alerts, collision warning and adaptive cruise control.
Fuel efficiency really depends mostly on chosen powertrain. Base models with turbo four engine are rated at 20/30 mpg with front-wheel drive and at 20/28 mpg with all-wheel drive. Similarly, normally aspirated V-6 returns either 18/26 mpg or 17/25 mpg, while the strongest twin turbo V-6 rates at 18/27 mpg or 17/24 mpg.
2016 Ford Edge Price and Release Date
Prices start from $27,000 which is how much the entry-level models cost and go all the way towards the $36,000 mark which is the most affordable sticker for Sport models.
2016 Ford Edge is going strong into its second generation while offering plenty of options to choose from. Three engines are really a treat for mid-size family SUV, but Ford should have done something more about its uninspiring interior. Apart from that, car looks very good from the outside and features a number of tech options which make it quite a functional car.
