Different fuel door size... Why?

Recommended Posts

I noticed that for some unknown reason, the fuel door on my 2019 Edge is larger than the one on my previous 2016 Edge... Why?... :shrug:

My guess is to accommodate for the space required to have a filler for adblue (diesel exhaust fluid) tank in case it would be required for some export markets.

 

Looking at owners manuals for UK & Australian models, they don't seem to use adblue, so cannot be sure. Maybe for some other markets or maybe after the refresh they didn't need it anymore but the larger fuel door already went into production.

Yeah but... I've never heard of a diesel powered Edge... :headscratch:

In Europe the Edge is diesel powered.  It has a much higher tow rating too.
" The new Edge also debuts in Europe a new powerful and fuel-efficient bi-turbo variant of Ford’s 2.0 litre EcoBlue diesel engine, combined with a new eight-speed automatic transmission for effortless cruising. "

It is also sold in Australia as the Ford Endura from 2019. Also diesel.

This might be aesthetic purposes. Does this affect your performance or this just bothers you?

No neither! ...it doesn't have anything to do with the vehicle's performance... and also it doesn't bother me. It's just that having had a '16 Titanium, I remember the fuel door was a little smaller on it than on my newer '19 model and a few days ago my '19 was parked next to my previous '16 (which I sold to a member of my family) and indeed the door is larger on my new one. I was just curious why?...:headscratch:
