Ford Edge after lifting - the second youth
Ford's flagship SUV in the U.S has experienced modernization. Will the modifications made allow him to become more prominent in the segment of large SUVs?
Edge is a popular SUV in America. The lift changed the look of the car, increased engine power and introduced new equipment. The Ford Edge of the second (current) generation was presented on the U.S market in 2014. In the U.S, about 400 units were sold, which is about 1.5% of the total sales of Ford on the Vistula.
Ford Edge - what has changed including the fuse box location?
The new "face" without wrinkles has appealed to the citizens of America in a more attractive manner. Slimmer headlights, wider radiator grille and redesigned mask as awarded the amazing car a more modern, more impressive and more attractive appearance. You can still choose one of two additional versions: an elegant Vignale with chrome accessories or an athletic ST-Line with black ones (including a mesh grill and 20-inch rims).
Unchanged! The same can be found in the models S-Max, Galaxy, and similar in Mondeo (all these models share a common platform). It must be admitted that Edge's cabin is carefully finished with good quality materials. The most surprising fact is the central part of the cockpit is simply a hard, unpleasant plastic. This weird choice actually added an extra attraction to the car. The fuse panel of the car is situated on the left side of driver's footwell, behind a trim panel. In order to remove the trim panel, you need to slide the release lever towards the right direction and then you’ll be able to pull it out.
There are tabs on both side of the cover, you just need to press them to pull the cover off. If you want to remove a fuse, all you need to do is to utilize the fuse puller tool that is provided on the fuse panel cover. The fuse box location is quite convenient.
Ford Edge - Roomy and Comfortable
Are you dreaming of getting a large SUV with a length of over 4.8 m and a wheelbase of less than 2.85 m.? Thanks to such dimensions in the interior of ford edge 1! It offers exactly the same attributes that you’re looking for. There are also plenty of storage compartments and power outlets (12V and one 230V).
