2019 Ford Edge Sharpens up With new Titanium Elite Trim

Ford knows folks love their high-end crossovers. For this reason, the brand has announced the 2019 Edge Titanium Elite; basically the ‘elite’ version of the already high-end Titanium trim level offered on most Ford vehicles.

Think of the Titanium Elite as Ford’s version of the GMC Denali portfolio. In this case, the Edge sports unique 20-inch wheels and trim, while Ford has even gone to the length of giving the Elite unique hood and liftgate designs. The overall changes are noticeable and give the Edge a considerably higher-end appearance.

Inside, Titanium Elite features a modestly revamped center console. Ford’s rotary dial gear selector is standard, while some finishes are unique to the highest-end trim level. Buyers also yield new-for-2019 features, such as evasive steering assist, pre-collision braking and stop/go assist.

What isn’t changing on the Edge Titanium Elite versus the rest of the lineup is what’s under the hood. Power will come from the same EcoBoost 2.0-liter four-cylinder that powers the lesser Edges, which generates 250 horsepower and 275 pound-feet of torque funneled through an eight-speed automatic.

Those wanting additional power can opt for the much hotter Edge ST, which packs 335 horsepower.

The only remaining link with the Titanium Elite is the price tag. Given the current Edge tops out in the mid-$40,000 range, it’s not unrealistic to assume this one will push $50,000 when it goes on sale later this year.

    I dont see the point of a Titanium Elite trim, do they need to keep pushing into Lincoln territory?


    It increases the viability of the Edge Vignale, which sells at low volumes in Europe.

    Also, this means the Nautilus will move further upmarket.
