2018 Ford Edge SEL Sport Package Revealed
Buyers of the 2018 Ford Edge SEL will be able to pump up the profile of their distinctive midsize crossover starting this fall when the new Sport Appearance Package goes on sale. Like similar kits available for the Escape and Explorer, the Sport Appearance Package for the 2018 Edge adds a selection of cosmetic touches for the mid-range SEL models, whether they’re fitted with the 2.0-liter EcoBoost 4-cylinder or 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.
