2021 Ford Edge First Look: A Big New Screen for a Dulling Edge
Don’t judge the Ford Edge 2021 by its coverage, because beneath its generally carried over and low-flash exterior design is a reworked cabin that houses the Blue Oval’s latest infotainment system – Sync 4. Already intended for a handful of others. Ford 2021 vehicles including the Bronco, F-150 and Mustang Mach-E, Sync 4 improves upon its ancestor by offering features such as software updates available over the air, more natural voice control functions, compatibility Wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and more.
Making the most of the features of the infotainment setup is a massive new 12.0-inch touchscreen mounted on the 2021 Edge’s dashboard. The large, portrait-style display is standard on the 2021 Edge model line and replaces the 8.0-inch unit on the 2020 Edge. It also exchanges physical climate controls for on-screen controls. A bad decision, if you ask us, but perhaps offset (by those who care less about intuitive temperature controls) by the screen size which induces the wow.
Plus, we’ll have to hang out with the 2021 Edge and its massive infotainment display before making any yarn-dyed judgments. With the ability to virtually split the screen into multiple larger and smaller windows, the ergonomic functionality of Sync 4 could overcome the fact that most – if not nearly all – of the Edge’s temperature control functions live on. on its touch screen.
Aside from the infotainment features, the Edge offers a few other changes for 2021. Except for the addition of two USB ports for rear passengers (one of which is a new USB-C port), and a few small changes. To the crossover’s list of trims and features, the 2021 Edge retains much of the same kit as its 2020 counterpart. This includes its standard turbocharged four-cylinder engine and the optional biturbo V6 for the more geared Edge ST. performance (the ST-Line is also valid for consumers who seek the look of the Edge ST without its six-cylinder engine).
Pricing for the 2021 Ford Edge remains under wraps, however, we expect it to largely mirror that of the 2020 model, which starts at $ 32,345.
