The updated 2019 Ford Edge would include a brand new range-topping variant: the Titanium Elite, furnishing the SUV with special wheels, reduce cladding and rear skid plates. Citing bigger sales in present years for best rated Edge trim levels just like the Titanium and Sport, Ford says it may set the Titanium Elite as a cosmetic package atop the Titanium.
Offered that titanium alternatives an atomic quantity of 22 and platinum’s is 78, there appear to grow to be many opportunities to plunder the periodic table. To wit, Ford features a new version in the Edge, which is a little nicer than the Titanium model. It could have opted for the Edge Zinc, Edge Germanium, or possibly the Silicon Valley-tactic Edge Technetium. Rather, the Blue Oval went with Edge Titanium Elite.
Ford doesn’t presently supply you Edge Platinum-for 2019, the range-topping model could be the ST, too as the Titanium sits just beneath it inside the model assortment. The powertrain consists of a 250-hp turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder driving the front wheels, with all-wheel drive as an option. Though earlier Titanium models supplied an optional V-6, non-ST Edges will only supply you the four-cylinder beginning with all of the 2019 model year. Elite folks go larger with exclusive 20-inch wheels, what Ford terms “a much more premium rear skid plate,” and full body-color sides.
The 2019 Edge goes on sale late this summer time; pricing continues to be pending. The 2018 Edge Titanium begins at $36,925 – about $6,700 more than the SUV’s base price – so it really is a protected bet that the 2019 Edge Titanium Elite will begin someplace north of that.
2019 Ford Edge Titanium – Exterior
This Elite’s changes amount to a monochrome look with body-colored cladding around the decrease bumpers and side sills versus the Titanium’s gray cladding – a appear that compares much more closely towards the monochrome Edge ST, save the latter model’s sportier ground effects. The Titanium Elite’s interior follows that from the Titanium, which itself is changed small from the 2015-18 Edge. Ford confirmed the Elite won’t have extra cabin attributes, strictly speaking.
It is unlikely the new trim will likely be the Edge’s priciest. That mantle at present belongs towards the Edge Sport, the nameplate’s speediest variant due to an exclusive turbocharged V-6. With a lot more energy for 2019, the new Edge ST replaces the Sport.
