The range-topping Ford Edge Vignale has been spied undergoing testing near the company's headquarters in Dearborn, Michigan.

Set to arrive in Europe sometime next year, the luxury-oriented model is heavily camouflaged but it is expected to follow in the footsteps of the Mondeo Vignale and feature a revised grille, additional chrome trim, and unique alloy wheels.  The crossover should also be available with several paint colors that are exclusive to the Vignale variant.

The unique styling  should continue in the cabin as the Edge Vignale is expected to be equipped with premium Windsor leather seats that feature hexagonal quilting and tuxedo stitching.  We can also look forward to an upholstered dashboard and special trim.

There's no word on specifics but if the Mondeo Vignale is any indication, the Edge will feature additional sound deadening material, an Active Noise Cancellation system, and heated / cooled front seats.  The model should also come packed with high-tech features such as an Adaptive Steering system, a Front Split View Camera, and Pre-Collision Assist with Pedestrian Detection.

Under the hood, two 2.0-liter diesel engines should be available.  They entry-level mill should produce 180 PS (132 kW) and 400 Nm (295 lb-ft) of torque, while the other should have 210 PS (154 kW) and 450 Nm (332 lb-ft) of torque.
