If you’re planning on buying the 2018 Ford Edge SEL, you’ll be able to choose from a new package to help pump up the profile of the midsize crossover. The new Sport Appearance Package will go on sale this fall and is similar to kits available for the Escape and Explorer. The package adds a selection of cosmetic touches for the mid-range SEL models regardless of which engine they’re equipped with (either the standard 2.0-liter EcoBoost 4-cylinder or the optional 3.5 V6).
The exterior tweaks in the Edge SEL bring blacked-out headlamp bezels and side window trim set off with Magnetic Metallic-painted finish in the grille surround, front/rear skidplates, mirrors caps and rear spoiler as well as on the 10-spoke/19-inch alloy wheels. Inside, the SEL Sport Appearance Package has new Mayan Gray fabric seat upholstery with Umber Miko perforated sueded-cloth inserts and Umber contrast stitching. The Umber theme carries to the “Edge” logo the white carpets while the dash features a distinctive Copper Sands applique.
Ford says the decision to use cloth in place of leather on this higher-end model upgrade reflects the wishes of current Edge customers, primarily those who reside in areas subject to more extreme weather conditions. Price for the new 2018 Ford SEL Sport Appearance Package is $1,295.
