Had a 2013 Ford Edge 2L ecoboost with a 6 speed automatic non-adaptive cruise control. Worked as expected flat road, uphill road and downhill road. Downhill it would sometimes downshift three times keeping the speed within 2 mph of cruise control setting. Cruise control life was good and again as expected.

 

Today have a 2019 Ford Edge 2L ecoboost with 8 speed automatic non-adaptive cruise control. The cruise control sucks as compared to the 2013 cruise control. On a downhill road with the cruise control set at 30 mph the transmission will not downshift and reaches 38 mph. On a different hill with the cruise control set at 35 mph the transmission will downshift 3 times and reaches a speed of 50 mph. The car gains roughly 5 mph per shift accumulative to reach 50 mph. Life is not good and the speed is 15 mph over the set cruise control speed. When doing a normal coast towards a stop light I can feel the car downshift. Over a year ago I went through this information with the dealer, their response, TFB, in nicer terms.

 

I want to know which gear the car is in whenever and am looking for a hopefully plug in gear indicator light. Anyone know of such a light???

 

Thank you

David Dewhurst

This is a possiblility

But I have some comments.  We're pretty flat here in the midwest, we don't have hills :D unless you're doing track days at Road America counter clockwise.

 

Also, that Edge should have paddle shifters.   Downshift to your heart's content.

Thanks Tom  

 

When searched for an Auto Meter light shows up, but not on Auto Meter site. Bussy phone there.

EDIT: Must have been a bit of extrasensory perception took place, entered the same 3359 part number today and up came the product. :scratchchin:

 

Clockwise it'll upshift fine. :yep:

 

Me being the frugal sort both Edges are SE models, no paddle/no adaptive cruise control.
