2022 Ford Edge
2022 Ford Edge After four years of modeling, the Ford Edge is receiving its medium-cycle soda for 2022. The crossover has been revamped to fit the rest of Ford’s modern lineup, and a new ST model has been introduced to inject some sportsmanship into the more midsize. But how does the new look compare with the pre-upgrade car? Compare for yourself below.
The 2022 Ford Edge maintains the hexagonal grille introduced in 2015 but is now smaller with more rounded corners. The front headlights have also been redesigned and no longer touch the edges of the grille. Meanwhile, the front bumper has been completely redesigned with new foglight and a different intake opening at the bottom of the front valance. The ST model obtains a larger grille with mesh insert and badging Red St and an exclusive front valance with black accents.
Predictably, the profile of the model 2022 does not change much from the outgoing edge. Titanium models still offer chrome window moldings, and there is still a roof-mounted rear spoiler that visually expands the roof line. The 2022 Edge standard receives four new wheel designs, however, and the ST gets special 20-inch wheels or optional five-spoke 21-inch alloys finished in glossy black. The taillights have been completely redesigned, and are no longer connected in the center of the back door. Although there is no longer a continuous lens through the back, the taillights still come together with a piece of black ornament. The ST has molded exhaust pipes and a unique rear bumper flanked by vents.

In the interior, the biggest change is the replacement of the shifter with a rotary dial that controls a new eight-speed automatic transmission. This frees up space in the center console and usually makes the cockpit look more modern, even though not much has changed in addition to the shifter. An available wireless charging pad is also new, located in the Cubby in front of the transmission dial. An 8.0-inch touch screen available still offers 3 synchronizations, and the speedometer in the center of the calibrator cluster is still flanked by dual TFT screens. The trim St receives special seating with additional and embossed St logos, St badging on the steering wheel and Ford performance door sill guards.
