The all-new Ford Edge SUV goes on sale in the UK priced from £29,995 in the summer.

It joins the Kuga ‘family-sized’ SUV and EcoSport compact SUV to complete Ford’s three-car SUV line-up.

Early indications from  CAP Gold Book put the 180PS 2.0-litre TDCi manual Zetec with a residual value of 56.6 per cent of its new list price, after three years/30,000 miles.

Andy Barratt, chairman and managing director, Ford of Britain, said: “The introduction of the stylish Ford Edge SUV is another incredibly exciting moment for Ford and its dealers. Joining performance products like Mustang and Focus RS and new luxury products like Mondeo Vignale already in showrooms, the Edge makes the Ford product line-up for 2016 never stronger.

“It will deliver more room for passengers than large competitor SUVs that cost considerably more. The styling and suite of comfort, convenience and safety technologies in Edge rival the premium offerings available in the UK.”

Available in Zetec, Titanium and Sport series, the Edge offers Ford intelligent all-wheel drive, active noise control, pedestrian detection, Ford DAB Audio with SYNC 2 connectivity system, privacy glass and 19-inch alloy wheels.

The flagship SUV is offered with a choice of 10 exterior colours including new electric spice and bronze fire.

The Edge will be offered in the UK with a choice of 180PS 2.0-litre TDCi diesel engine with six-speed manual transmission, or 210PS bi-turbo 2.0‑litre TDCi diesel with six-speed PowerShift automatic transmission.

Both powertrains will aim to deliver 48.7mpg fuel efficiency and 149g/km CO2 supported by Auto-Start-Stop technology.

The Ford Edge made its European debut at Frankfurt Motorshow in 2015.

In North America, the Edge was introduced in 2007 and has achieved record sales in 2013 with 129,109.
