The family favorite Ford Edge is getting some exciting upgrades for 2021. This crossover gives you more than enough space for both passengers and cargo, making it a smart buy. But the Edge is not all business. It also comes loaded with entertainment features to help you enjoy your travels around Millstadt, IL. Here is a closer look at what is new for the 2021 Ford Edge.

Technology Features

All models of the new 2021 Edge benefit from the latest Sync 4 infotainment system for keeping you connected while on the roads of Columbia. Rather than the 8-inch touchscreen that was previously standard, the SUV now comes with a 12-inch setup. The Edge continues to come standard with Amazon Alexa, Android Auto, and Apple CarPlay compatibility, along with a Wi-Fi hotspot.

Safety Features

The Ford Co-Pilot 360 suite gets even more comprehensive in 2021. All models add reverse parking sensors to their standard equipment list. This feature, combined with automatic emergency braking, rear cross-traffic alert, and forward-collision warning, helps protect what you value most while on the roads of Smithton.


One thing that is not changing for the 2021 Edge is its powerful yet efficient engine choices. You will get either a 250-horsepower turbo four-cylinder or a twin-turbo V6 making 335-horsepower, depending on the trim level that you choose. Front-wheel drive is standard, but you can also get all-wheel drive, which is beneficial for Belleville winters. 

When you choose the four-cylinder and FWD, your Edge will give you 21 mpg in the city and 27 mpg on the highway. These are great figures for the midsize SUV segment of the market. Even if you opt for the power of the V6, you can expect 19 mpg while driving around Waterloo and 26 mpg highway.
