The Ford Edge is a mid-size crossover SUV that, up until the current version, included a third-row of seating. However, Ford dropped that option to give more space to the passengers inside the cabin.

2018 Ford Edge Specs
Under the hood, we are really not expecting to see any changes here either. The truth is that you should find the same 2.0 4-cylinder EcoBoost engine that is currently being used. This engine is capable of producing about 245 of horsepower and 275 of torque.
Another option that you have is the 3.5-liter V6 engine with 280 of horsepower and 250 lb/ft of torque. However, in case you want to buy the higher trim level of the 2018 Ford Edge, you will get the 2.7-liter 4-cylinder twin-turbo EcoBoost engine that is capable of producing 315 of horsepower and 350 of torque.
All the engines, no matter which trim level you choose, will come with a 5-speed SelectShift automatic transmission as well as the front-wheel drive will come as a standard. In case you prefer the all-wheel drive, you should also have the option to get it, even though this should come as the standard for the Sport trim.
2018 Ford Edge Interior
In what concerns with the interior, we believe that the major changes will be seen here. After all, Ford removed the third-row of seats to make sure all the passengers had more space and remained more comfortable. But Ford did more. For the new 2018 Ford Edge, they decided to update the trim materials. They put the dash in slightly higher, changed some of the materials, and made some of the hard surfaces as “soft-touch” now.
In what concerns with the different trims that are offered with the 2018 Ford Edge, you can expect to get the SE, SEL, Titanium, and Sport.
As for the 2018 Ford Edge base model, you should count to find an infotainment system connected to a 4.2” display at the center of the dash, air conditioning, keyless ignition and entry, auto on/off headlights, and 18” alloy wheels.
