On wednesday, we finally managed to get our eyes on the new Ford Edge as it arrived for this weekend’s London Motor Show in Battersea Park. Finished in White Platinum, the flagship SUV will take center stage at our Dees stand inside the show’s main building, alongside current variants of the Kuga, EcoSport, Ranger, Fiesta ST, S-Max, B-Max and Mondeo. We will also be running test drives in a Focus, Fiesta, EcoSport and Kuga.
The model sent by Ford was a production unit and could be subject to a few changes before the release later in the year, but from what we saw, we were all very impressed. We particularly like the full brown leather interior and are looking forward to seeing the steering wheel being on the right hand side, (the correct side).
The Edge is due later in the year and will be available in 3 different spec levels, the Zetec, Titanium and Sport, with a choice of 2 bi-turbo TDCi engines, one producing 180ps and the other at 210. The lower power engine can be chosen with either a manual or powershift gearbox, whilst the 210ps unit will be automatic only. Ford expect each powertrain to give over 40mpg and for less than £30,000, the Edge will be pushing its land rover rivals down the pecking order.
Here at Dees we are expecting the Edge to be a massive hit, so take a look at our fantastic new Edge offers here to find out what all the fuss is about;Dees of Wimbledon, Ford Edge
