The entire Edge lineup receives new wheel designs, and two new gray colors join the palette. All models also receive acoustic-laminated glass on the front side windows for extra sound deadening as well as standard rear parking sensors. The infotainment system gets upgraded to the Sync 4 interface and gains a 12-inch display. The top-level ST model adds a six-way power-adjustable passenger's seat and a heated steering wheel as standard.
