At the Detroit Auto Show Ford announced the 2019 Edge and the Edge ST. They also announced that th 2019Edge will have an 8 speed trans. Why would anyone buy an ‘18 if the ‘19will have better fuel economy and performance via the 8speed?

I learned a lesson with my wifes 2017 Escape.  Don't buy the first year anything.

 

Good luck being the guinea pig with that 8-speed.

Because the vast majority of buyers don’t know anything about the 2019 or they don’t want to wait that long.

According to my dealer, the order bank for the ST does not open until September and dealer allocation is limited. All other models had the order bank open as indicated above

4-8 weeks after job 1 unless they run into problems with the launch.

Thanks akirby, looks like that would make it sometime late October or November. I always thought the next year models showed up in September. Guess there are problems getting production going?

 

Another question: Is this the first time Ford is using the 8 speed trans as I'm thinking about how reliable it will be as it is so new.

 

Appreciate the reply's.

It is the first application of the new 8 speed. Hard to say whether it will have problems or not but I don’t expect any major issues.

New cars no longer come out in September. Some come out in early or late spring, some in the summer and some later. Basically they come out when they’re ready now. The old schedules don’t apply.

Was interested in the 2019 Edge but the paddle shifters were dropped, except for the AWD model. Can anyone tell me why? I drive mountain roads with 8% down grades and use the manual downshifting all the time, so without that capability it's a no go on the edge unless I go AWD. Ugh!

 

Thanks...

They probably didnt see a reason to include it on non AWD versions.

I would be shocked if they didn't offer selectshift at all on FWD models.   I started to say that it could use buttons on the shift lever but there is no shift lever.    Hopefully that's a typo - it's not something you use all the time but if you're going up or down hills it's invaluable.

It's so important to me that it's a deal breaker if I had no way to manually downshift, because 90% of my driving is mountainous.

Really interested in ordering a 19 Edge to replace our 13 Edge and have a couple of questions.  I know the Metallic Blue is new to the Edge but is it being used on other model?  I'm really anxious to see it on an Edge.  Also really hoping package bundling makes more sense than in the past.  I simply refuse to pay for a moon roof in order to get other options I want.

It was a new color across the board for 2018. It is on the Focus, C-Max, Fusion (I have one myself in that color), Escape, Edge and I think F-series.
