2019 Edge Order Guide

Recommended Posts

With all the comments going back and forth about the suspension I was expecting some feedback.

Can't comment on something I don't understand. But different part numbers can be for any difference. Even the same model year with & without vista roof would have different part numbers.

The final drive ratio is different and higher in the ST, and that change alone will result in faster acceleration in the ST. The ST final drive 3.39 vs. the Sport 3.16.

 

Why Is Final Drive Ratio Important? Accelerate Faster!

Don't forget that there is a new transmission which means different gear ratios, so the final drive alone does not give the full picture. But since it is a 8 speeds versus 6 speeds, there will be a difference.

No, they wouldn't. A different trim level might have different spring part numbers, but having different options (except tire size) has nothing to do with what springs it has within that trim level. Now on a truck, that's a different story.

There are 9 different part numbers for the rear Spring in the first link & 6 numbers in the second link.

Lots of manufacturers price parts on model trims. Have a high end model, it may be the same as a base model part but because you paid more dor your vehicle we gonna make you pay more for a part. All about taking advantage of the unknown

I always said, if Im wrong on the suspension, Id gladly admit it. Just makes no sense to keep that data private imo

What does the price of parts have to do with my post about springs?

And your point is? How many different trim levels are there, and with how many different engines are within those trim levels? Basically what I was saying is that just because a Titanium has a moonroof, doesn't mean it has different springs than a Titanium without a moonroof with everything else being the same (wheel size, engine, AWD etc)

The 2016 parts list isn't clear, but the 2011 is. You can clearly see different spring part numbers with & without sunroof.

They often use different spring rates with different options. E.g. different engines, heavy vista roofs, etc.

because each spring could just have a different part number just for the trim it is on, but in reality be the same exact part

That doesn't make sense. It would double or triple the number of part numbers for the same exact part and serves no other purpose that I can think of.

Having worked in the parts business on both the dealer and manufacturer sides, I can tell you that it is true that more than one part number may be assigned to the same part but not within the same product line. If an Edge spring has a different part number then it is different in some way from other Edge springs. But it is not uncommon for the same part to have different numbers across product lines - in this case an MKX part might be the same as an Edge part but still have a different number because they get it from a different supplier or some other reason.

 

One example I'll never forget... most Honda motorcycles use the exact same oil drain plug washer as Honda automobiles yet the motorcycle part number is different and more than three times the price of the automobile part. However, the Accord EX part number isn't different from the Accord LX number (or even from the Civic number for that matter) so the idea that part numbers change between trim levels for no reason other than pricing isn't the case. The ordering and inventory management issues alone would make that impractical but more than that, manufacturers wouldn't want customers to hear about such a practice which could be a violation of antitrust laws - and things like that tend not to remain secret for very long.

My guess on AWD disconnect is that it must be disconnecting the PTU - that's the only thing that would be new compared to the current system.

 

Finally found some info on AWD disconnect from the PTU mfr. It disengages the drive shaft inside the PTU.

I think every update to the forum is killing attachments. Could be a spacesaving measure, but IDK.
