2021 FORD EDGE: SMARTER, MORE STYLISH THAN EVER; ADDS STANDARD SYNC 4A WITH LARGEST-IN-CLASS 12-INCH DISPLAY
OCT 28, 2020 | DEARBORN, MICH.


  • The 2021 Ford Edge and Edge ST feature a more refined interior with standard SYNC® 4A system as well standard Ford Co-Pilot360™ driver assist features
  • Standard SYNC® 4A complements a now-standard largest-in-class 12-inch center stack screen, connected built-in navigation and cloud connectivity with conversational voice recognition capabilities in the 2021 Ford Edge
  • Go cord-free with available wireless charging pad to power up mobile devices and Wi-Fi enabled Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto® compatibility and SYNC AppLink®
DEARBORN, Mich. – Oct. 28, 2020 – Built to excite, the 2021 Ford Edge and performance-oriented Edge ST add smart new technologies, including a new standard largest-in-class 12-inch size center screen, all-new SYNC® 4A with connected built-in navigation and cloud connectivity with conversational voice recognition, plus refinements to Edge’s interior and exterior design.

“Ford Edge is the choice for tech-savvy customers on the go,” said Angela Cascaden, Edge marketing manager. “It offers standard Ford Co-Pilot360 technologies with driver assist features. And with SYNC 4A with over-the-air updates, customers can get the latest tech and services from Ford at any time – no dealership visit required.”

The 12-inch screen supports multi-tasking, enabled by splitting the screen into larger and smaller windows. 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, making SYNC 4A even easier to use than before.

All-new cloud connectivity combines conversational voice recognition with the power of internet-based search results, so you always have access to the latest information with almost every request – such as “Find me the best Thai restaurant” – while SYNC can make data-based suggestions to drivers. Staying in contact with friends and family becomes easier, with natural speech recognition enabling communication via SMS and email.

Removing the need to plug-in a mobile device, SYNC 4A includes Wi-Fi enabled Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility and SYNC AppLink. For customers subscribed to SiriusXM® with 360L, the 2021 Edge can also provide a curated listening experience with on-demand streamed content and personalized entertainment channels.

To make charging mobile devices easier, the 2021 Ford 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.

SYNC 4A is connected with built-in navigation for traffic and hazard information, parking, gas prices and weather – all stored in the cloud.

And while SYNC 4A leverages the cloud, it will still retain on-board processing power to help minimize performance issues where there might not be strong cell service – meaning your road trip is in good hands even when you go off the beaten path.

Finding information about the 2021 Ford Edge will also become easier than ever with SYNC 4A, which includes an all-new digital owner’s manual. Instead of flipping through dozens of pages, the digital owner’s manual includes in-depth information on vehicle features, streamable how-to videos to help you learn, and more – all through a searchable database.

Edge was the first Ford SUV to offer Ford Co-Pilot360 as a standard suite of features and continues to offer available advanced driver assist tech including Enhanced Active Park Assist, Evasive Steering Assist, Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop-and-Go and Lane-Centering and a 180-degree front camera. Driver-assist features are supplemental and do not replace safe driving or the driver’s attention, judgment and need to control the vehicle. It does not replace safe driving. See Owner’s Manual for details and limitations.

2021 Edge also features an extensive wheel lineup for increased choice and customization, with nine options including 18-inch Sparkle Silver-painted aluminum wheels standard on the SE series and 21-inch premium gloss black-painted aluminum wheels available on ST. New interior trim options for Edge include a Ceramic interior option on Titanium Elite models and a new Cloth interior option for SEL. New available exterior colors are Carbonized Gray and Lithium Gray.

Returning for 2021 is Edge ST-Line for SUV customers who prefer Edge ST’s bold style while prioritizing value over performance. Edge ST-Line features a unique ST-style grille with body-colored bumpers, black ST beltline molding combined with lower sport cladding, standard fog lamps and signature LED lighting. Black roof rack side rails, 20-inch gloss black aluminum wheels and unique Edge ST-Line badging further enhance the look.

Edge ST remains the choice for performance-minded customers. Featuring a specially tuned 2.7-liter EcoBoost®pumping out 335 horsepower and 380 lb.-ft. of torque using 93-octane fuel – the first SUV from Ford Performance is outfitted for dynamic handling. It includes a quick-shifting 7-speed automatic transmission, standard all-wheel drive with selectable traction control, an available ST Performance Brake Package, and ST-tuned sport suspension and steering.

Our Ford Edge Sport is coming off of lease in the fall of 2021. We are completely happy with it - so much so that it is our second one.

This is a viable alternative to the MME and if you lease will in all probability be $200 to $300 a month less.

The question again becomes how much more are you willing to pay to go green?

The problem with the Edge is that it has an engine, so price is completely irrelevant as it's disqualified from consideration in my household.

I still plan to take trips in the winter to Vermont for skiing and long trips the rest of year so I will need an ICE in addition to an EV

Not judging. I'm a 1-car household, and that car is a BEV, so the replacement (Mach-E) will be as well.

Fully understand.

Unless your current BEV is a Tesla, the range of your present BEV is significantly less than the MME, and if the range of your present BEV is satisfactory then the range of the MME will be a significant upgrade!

So makes sense to me.

Very, very interesting indeed!

Would love you to consider starting a new thread:

"Moving from Tesla Model 3 to Mach-E and here's Why!"

I for one would love to learn of your reasons as I am also considering the Model Y - but not the Model 3.

I think there are a lot of us who are also considering a Model Y and would love to hear of your experience with the Model 3.

I like the placement of the screen better and it looks like it was meant to be there rather than an afterthought. I think that is my biggest disappointment with the Mach E. I was considering an Edge before I heard about the mach E. I want something that gets very good MPG and you can't beat a BEV. My current Compact SUV gets me 22 mpg and was very efficient in 2014.

Likewise... Several trips to Northern Central Vermont a year for us. There ain't a whole lot of public charging up there. Coupled with the range drop in the cold weather, a BEV won't cut it for a couple of years still.

2021 Ford Edge First Look: A Big New Screen for a Dulling Edge

From the article:

"Don't judge the 2021 Ford Edge by its cover, because underneath its generally carry-over, low-flash exterior design rests a reworked cabin that welcomes the Blue Oval's latest infotainment system—Sync 4. Already earmarked for a handful of other 2021 Ford vehicles, including the Bronco, F-150, and Mustang Mach-E, Sync 4 improves on its forebear by offering features such as available over-the-air software updates, more natural voice command functions, wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility, and more. "

Wonder if the screen is the same as in the MME?
