The 2018 Ford Edge for this year comes with Sport Appearance package for SEL trim level. This upgrade comes with $1,295 higher price.
Ford is one of the most famous car brands in the world. They have been releasing many cars with different looks and features. Now they are about to launch another type known as Ford Edge 2018. It is not officially out yet, but there is a number of rumors about it spread out already. Here are a few of them and one of them is new Sport Appearance package.
The SEL trim level gained Sport Appearance package
It is not easy to guess how 2018 Ford Edge will look like. If we review at their previous generations, it seems that they are not willing to make a totally different vehicle. Hence, that will make this model to have a similar design. They might still keep the aggressive look with its strong body lines. If there is one that needs to change, it must be the high center of gravity. It is because the previous model was criticized for such issue. So, lowering it will improve the stability. Furthermore, the other parts that might get an improvement are the front and rear design scheme.
At the front, they might use a similar look with 2017 Ford Expedition. In the meantime, you can expect to see new tail lights, a new bumper with a new exhaust at the rear side. SEL now comes with Sport Appearance package that includes 19-inches wheels with unique design. Headlights come with smoked bezels while Magnetic Metallic color gets rear spoiler, skid plates, mirror caps and grille surround.
Just like the exterior, there is not much to share about the interior since it is still in secrecy. But, we believe there might be some changes too. The dashboard can be one of them. Similar with its high center, some people also complained how dull the dashboard is in the previous version. So, there is a chance that they will redesign it with a new and modern style. That includes the gauge cluster as well.
Moreover, the central console layout may get some improvement too since the one in its predecessor is a bit old. This change will go along with the air vents. Furthermore, rumor has it that they will utilize noise dampening material to the cabin. It aims to prevent noises from the outside as well as the sound from the engine of the car. Higher trim levels with Sport Appearance package comes with optional high quality cloth seats for buyers in areas with hotter climate. That means that they will not be forced to buy new Edge with leather seats.
New Ford Edge 2018 specs
There are 3 choices of engine we can expect them to use in the new Ford Edge 2018. The first one is 3.5-Liter V6 engine that is able to create 280 horsepower and 250lb-ft of torque. The second one is 2.3 liter EcoBoost, which is higher than the V6. It can produce 300 horsepowers and 300 pound-feet of torque. The last one is 2.7-liter V6 engine with its power of 315 hp and 360 lb-ft. The transmission system of the vehicle might be changed too from the six-speed automatic to nine-speed unit. This upgraded system will offer you a better performance than the six-speed one. Along with its front-wheel drive, it can give you a better fuel economy, smoother acceleration, and faster throttle response.
2018 Ford Edge release date and price
The price of 2018 Ford Edge is not officially confirmed yet, but there is an information that the Edge SEL will have higher price for $,1290. There is an estimation that its price will start from $30,000. It might be a bit expensive since there is not a lot of changes. In spite of it, there are still some improvements you can enjoy from the car. The release date is also a mystery. However, you can anticipate it to come out in the summer of 2017.
