LWB Ford Edge revisions (China)

Here in the US, the 7 seat Ford SUV is the Explorer.
So we never got this longer version of the Edge.

It got a new front end a while ago. And now it is getting small revisions to its headlights. But especially, that giant screen inside.
As mentioned before, Ford is pushing huge screen sizes for the Chinese market. Where it offer much larger units in the new Escape and Lincoln Corsair.

Is this trend coming to the US as well?
It seems that in just 2 or 3 years, almost every car will have a couple of large screens or a huge one incorporating everything (Like Mercedes has been doing)

I personally do like  large center screen. But I am still not sure of replacing the dials is such an improvement...

The white part of the taillights brings the whole thing one level below basse classe.

The way this large screen is integrated in the dash here is the way the Explorer should have done it. So much better.

Regardless of what automakers say - the huge center screen means more stuff that will distract the driver.

It's no coincidence that pedestrian deaths have jumped in recent years (after decades of decline).

The rear quarter portion of this Edge is take out of the Volvo XC90! I like the exterior but the wrapped around looking dash looks old style retro which I do not like. Maybe if it were in a lighter color beige or white it be more appealing to me! All cars are going to the big screen size in next generation models. Looks longer then the existing Edge sold in the U.S. My guess is Ford will stick with the 7-8” horizontal screen size to save money in the U.S.!
