Ford Edge appeared on the Chinese market
Sales of the new Ford Edge crossover have been announced in China, which differs from the previously introduced U.S. variant.
The interior is significantly changed: a new steering wheel, front panel, horizontal touchscreen with a 13.2-inch screen, virtual dashboard. There are horizontal air deflectors; under them, there is a climate control unit in the cabin. The cabin in the Chinese market can be performed in two versions - five and seven seats.
The novelty set may include LED headlights, adaptive cruise control, all-around vision cameras, a lane-keeping system, and automatic braking. Next year, this car will communicate with other vehicles and road infrastructure in some cities using the C-V2X protocol.
Externally, the car has also undergone some changes. The model has a new grille, modified bumper, and exhaust manifolds. Headlights are integrated with the grille; taillights are again united with a slat.
Under the hood, the Edge Plus has a 2-liter turbocharged EcoBoost gasoline engine with 245 horsepower, 390 Nm. Transmission is an eight-speed automatic. Drive options are front or all-wheel drive.
