- the 2021 ford edge gets a notable new standard feature: a huge 12.0-inch touchscreen.
- the upgraded screen runs ford's latest sync 4 infotainment software and offers wireless apple carplay and android auto capabilities.
- ford has yet to announce pricing for the 2021 edge, which we expect to reach dealerships within the next few months.
ford is pandering to our undying obsession with screens by adding a huge touchcscreen to the 2021 edge. the new 12.0-inch screen will be standard equipment in every edge model, and it's even bigger than the 10.1-inch unit that's optional in the larger explorer.
the vertically oriented, portrait-style screen runs the latest version of ford's infotainment software, called sync 4a, which should mean improved graphics compared with the old sync 3 system. it offers wireless smartphone-mirroring capabilities, meaning you can connect your phone via apple carplay or android auto through wi-fi rather than having to plug it in with a cable. there are also two new usb ports, including a usb-c port, bringing the total to four.
other updates to the 2021 edge include new wheel designs and a few new interior trim choices. new colors include two more grey hues: carbonized grey and lithium grey.
ford has yet to provide pricing for the 2021 edge, but trim levels will once again include se, sel, titanium, st-line, and st. the st-line trim was added for 2020 and apes the looks of the st without the performance upgrades. expect the 2021 edge to reach ford dealerships within the next few months.
