Ford Edge Vignale unveiled at 2016 Geneva Motor Show; powered by 2.0 TDCi engine with 180 PS and 210 PS options
Ford tries to lead SUV market with a new launch at 2016 Geneva Motor Show. Ford Kuga, Edge and S-Max Vignale are the three musketeers. We are gazing at Edge vignale right now. Ford’s big push of its new Edge Vignale is a response to the vast majority of its larger models being ordered in top-spec Titanium trims as offering a more expensive, exclusive and luxurious spec will give increased profit potential.
Interior features include Hexagonal-quilted Windsor leather trim with tuxedo-style stitching for the seats and door interiors, offered in light Cashmere or dark Ebony colours; and Ebony leather trim for the central armrest and storage console as well as for the instrument panel which features a woven aluminum applique on the passenger side.
When we see under the hood we got an advanced 2.0 TDCi engine with two power options: 180 PS and 210 PS Bi-Turbo.
Both variants incorporate the latest technology to maximize performance, torque and economy, whilst lowering emissions. The engine with 180 PS and 400 Nm of torque returns 44.1 mpg and a lower CO2 emission of 149g/km. The 210 PS and 450Nm of torque motor gives a mileage of 44.1 mpg and 149g/km CO2 emission. The Bi-Turbo engine features two turbochargers and offers enhanced performance and efficiency.
“A Rear Inflatable Seatbelt is helpful In the event of an impact, the belts inflate and spread the crash forces over a five times larger area of the body than conventional seat belts” according to ford.
Ford SYNC 2 lets you stay connected and control your phone, music, navigation system and climate control with intuitive voice commands and it has the 8”colour touch screen. You can even call up a list of local restaurants just by saying “I’m hungry”, or access the Michelin Guide to help you choose and book places to eat, along with hotels. These little tricks make it more luxurious.
So would any of the attractive, seemingly posh Vignale models work in the U.S.? In all likelihood yes, but as we’ve pointed out before, that would be the case only if Ford’s Lincoln luxury brand didn’t exist. Lincolns aren’t sold in Europe, leaving Ford the freedom to offer niche models.
