In a 2017 comparison test that included the Honda and Jeep, the Ford Edge 2019 New Design placed fifth. Handling also proved to be another Ford Edge 2019 New Design weak spot and we found the steering to be numb.
The Ford Edge 2019 New Design, on the other hand, is a better package, as we noted in a 2017 First Test, thanks to its smooth powertrain and well-calibrated brakes that smoothly transition between regenerative and mechanical braking. However, since it isn’t a plug-in hybrid, the Ford Edge 2019 New Design doesn’t have much EV mode range and can only travel around 0.5 miles on electricity.A rearview camera with rear parking sensors is now standard on all models.
The car is the only Ford Edge 2019 New Design trim level that can be had with a cool two-tone exterior color scheme. The ride itself was smooth, and road imperfections were barely felt.”
