2021 Ford Edge Styling Updates Compared To 2020 Model

Sponsored Links

As we outlined last week, the 2021 Ford Edge has received a host of styling, tech, and interior updates for the new model year. However, while Ford provided plenty of details regarding the Edge’s new 12-inch infotainment screen and SYNC 4A upgrades, it only mentioned the crossover’s styling changes in passing.

Thus, we’ve put together a comparison to better demonstrate just what has changed on the exterior of the 2021 Ford Edge compared to the outgoing 2020 Ford Edge. Truthfully, the differences are somewhat minor, but no doubt noticeable.

Out back, the 2021 Edge features an updated rear liftgate with more prominent “Edge” badging. The Edge script has been moved upward to just below the Ford oval as well, placing it within the blacked-out portion of the tailgate.

These styling updates come with various other changes to the 2021 Ford Edge, including the aforementioned 12-inch infotainment screen and SYNC 4A with connected built-in navigation, cloud connectivity with conversational voice recognition, Wi-Fi enabled Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility, SYNC AppLink, and a digital owner’s manual.

The 12-inch screen supports multi-tasking, enabled by splitting the screen into larger and smaller windows, just like the 2021 Ford F-150. For example, if a customer wants to keep their navigation route on the screen while changing songs, they can choose to display the radio or other streaming music services in the smaller display area. While parked, customers will be able to quickly scroll through nine different features to display as Information on Demand.

Additionally, the 2021 Edge adds two additional USB ports, one being a USB-C – bringing the total to four – to give backseat passengers easier access to device charging. The Edge also adds two new interior trim options, including a Ceramic interior option on Titanium Elite models and a new Cloth interior option for SEL. Two new exterior colors are available as well: Carbonized Gray and Lithium Gray.

Brett's lost track of all the Fords he's owned over the years and how much he's spent modifying them, but his current money pits include an S550 Mustang and 13th gen F-150.
